More NOLA haul

There were tons of masks to choose from in all the various touristy gift shops, but I found three fabulous masks to choose from, and lacy, crackly cream mask, a black sparkly mask, and an orange one.

I was torn between the three, but finally decided on the orange one, since I have some fabulous orange taffeta in my stash that has been begging to be turned into something, and now I have an accessory to force myself to make something from it!  Something involving a mask…….


UPDATE:  The lovely Praksedys has suggested this gown……I completely and utterly agree!  The slashing!  The crazy hat!  The embroidered bands!

… to find a masked ball…………..



  1. Slashing and a crazy hat? Orange is my favorite color. Can't wait to see what you eventually do?

  2. Slashing and crazy hat....sounds just up my alley!

    The link takes me to a blank search you have a direct link to the image?? :D

  3. Fabulous! What a great color for you.

  4. Sorry. Its a Giocomo Franco engraving of masked carnival revelers from Habiti d'uomini e donne Venetiane con la processione
