PUSSY FOOTERS, CAMEL TOES, AND BEARDED OYSTERS   1 comment

One of the highlights of the carnival season for us is the Thursday before Mardi Gras. The Krewe of Muses parade rolls Uptown along St. Charles Ave. Muses is the first all female krewe to ride on a night time parade on an important night of the carnival season. Brush up on your MUSES trivia and memorabilia with the Visualvamp.

Being forced by the circumstances to forgo any tango activities during this sacred period in New Orleans kulture, the gigantic high heel shoe that leads the parade tickles my fancy and prepares me for the vapors I get when I see the Pussy Footers, the Camel Toes and the Bearded Oysters parade by.

However, being a sucker for intelligent minds, I look forward every year to the wit and equal opportunity tongue lashing that local and national politicians get as their names and peccadilloes make up the theme of each elaborate float. Few people get access to the Top Secret missions these divas have been assigned to.

Even though we got a little late to the parade route, the floats were running even later so have a look at the Krewe of Chaos who preceded Muses,

Finally the anticipated excitement of the night began to unfold ,

  1. Ha! Found this randomly, and saw myself. I was with the guy in the vinyl bunny suit.

    I have only vague memories of Muses, seeing as I started drinking early and it rolled so late, so thanks for this.
