I took this photo last time I was in New Orleans.
This is a wall on the side of a grocery store,
with a hand painted advertisement for "Big Shot" soda.

Hmmmm, if you had been standing on a box with no axe, I would have guessed that your 1965 costume was a prophetic costume of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner!

you really had some good costumes.

In New Orleans.... traditionally the best costumes were/are made "by hand", with things you find, or "just come up with"... not going to a store and buying a costume.

Carnival/Mardi Gras in New Orleans is very different than the annual "Halloween parade" in New York City.
