Today is the day of Epiphany, also known as Three King’s Day. It marks the last day of the Christmas season and commemorates the day that the Three Wise Men visited the infant Jesus and presented him with gifts. It also happens to mark the day that ushers in Mardi Gras season. We thought it would be fitting to share with you some Mardi Gras outfits to inspire you for your upcoming celebration. Inspired by popular and historical themes of the New Orleans region, here are some of our favorite costume ideas.
Mardi Gras Jester
It wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without a jester and this costume is just what you need to let the good times roll. We took our favorite sexy jester outfit by Leg Avenue which is styled with a fun purple wig, and added a purple Mardi Gras mask to complete the look. Make sure you add a matching petticoat to give the skirt a full look for an outfit that is sure to please the court!
Mardi Gras Pirate
Pirates are popular anywhere in the Southeastern region of the country. It’s no coincidence that rum is the alcohol of choice during Mardi Gras season. That’s why this fun pirate outfit is perfect for your Mardi Gras party. We love how this pirate masquerade mask matches perfectly with this sexy pirate outfit. Don’t forget the pirate flask! You’ll need something to hold all that booze!
Mardi Gras Goddess
Many of the Mardi Gras “krewes” are themed after Greek mythology so we created a Mardi Gras goddess outfit out of a purple toga costume and matched with the perfect mask. Complete the look with jewelry and sandals for a look that is festive, yet comfortable.
Mardi Gras Flapper
Jazz and New Orleans go together like peanut butter and jelly. That’s why this rainbow flapper costume is a great choice for any Mardi Gras celebration. Add a flapper wig, a boa, and a feather mask and you’ll be riding high to all your favorite tunes.
Mardi Gras Marie Antoinette
The French were one of the earliest colonial powers in the New Orleans region, which is the primary reason that many of the traditions, customs, and even language come from France. The term, “Mardi Gras” is in fact French which is why a Marie Antoinette costume is so perfect for this type of celebration. When it comes to lavish and decadent parties, Ms. Antoinette sure knew how to live it up. You can too in this sexy ensemble. We paired the Marie Antoinette costume with a wig and a feather mask to create a look that is fun and fancy.
