Super Sunday, New Orleans

After obsessing over Super Sunday for quite sometime I was dazzled by the craftsmanship of each elaborate Indian garment dancing down Washington Avenue. 

Every year, Mardi Gras Indian tribes hand sew their suits, bead by bead, feather by feather and parade through the streets of New Orleans. It's said the tradition dates back centuries; African Americans create "Indian Mask" as a way to pay homage to the Native Americans that helped them during slavery. 

Costumes, Parades and Performers are three subjects that fill me with excitement. Overwhelmed by the colorful, intricate beading of each suit, I still managed to take a few lovely snaps.
