The Mardi Gras jester is something all on iconic sight in new Orleans during Mardi Gras. It is customary to dress up in both extravagant and very daring and revealing costumes on the Tuesday itself. Of course brings out revelers who are dressed in the signature green, purple, and gold colors that so readily identify with Mardi Gras. This particular jester however did not seem the happiest of people, but I don't think this was anything to do with his mood, I just think thatís the look of the Jester - donít you agree?
The particular Carnival shirt has become very popular with New Orleans residents during Mardi Gras. It is highly distinctive and immediately recognizable as part of the culture of this great city. Appropriately however, these shirts only get an airing once or twice a year, which is kind of appropriate in that they are very extravagant and would otherwise seem very old choice of attire. It is a bit like wearing the team jersey off your favorite football team. You wear it with pride in the knowledge or expectation that kindred spirits will recognize and acknowledge you for it. And just like with your football team, you wear these colors even if you have actually left the great city of New Orleans. My own shirt actually hangs over the back of my office chair every Mardi Gras, as a remainder to me of all the great times we had in the city. It is also something of an icebreaker in the office, which generally prompts a conversation about Mardi Gras with your co-workers- particularly those who do not really understand or have experienced Mardi Gras.
