Gettin' Made: Fat Tuesday Finds
Happy Fat Tuesday folks! As Mardi Gras draws to a close, Let's take a look at some fun New Orleans party inspired goods from a slew of Etsy crafters!

After the jump, more Mardi Gras pieces to help keep the party happening long after Fat Tuesday comes to a close.
|"The Parade" by The Incomplete Frame|
This photograph totally reminds me of that movie Black Orpheus, a retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice that was set in carnivale in Rio De Janeiro. A little further away than New Orleans, but the spirit remains the same!
|Mardi Gras King Cake by Sweet Pleasures|
The nice thing about the internet is if you're jonesing for an authentic king cake there's someone out there that'll make and send you one! King cakes are a Mardi Gras tradition; a small plastic baby is hidden in the pastry, and whoever gets the piece of cake with the toy in it is king or queen for the day. (Fine print - if you are king or queen for the day it's your responsibility to supply next year's king cake!)

And don't forget the beads, like this fun beaded cocktail ring! A great representation of the main colors associated with Mardi Gras - purple stands for justice, green stands for faith and gold stands for power. Bonus - if you buy yourself something beaded you don't have to go Girls Gone Wild to get it in the mail!
