Lake Charles Part 2 Mardi Gras Museum 2/3/2015

 Feb. 3 continued 
We were amazed at all the costumes at the Lake Charles Mardi Gras Museum.

 Queen Rebekah wore this in 1962.  It is the oldest dress in the Museum.  At that time sequins and beads were all individually sewn.

 Now sequins and beads are applied with hot glue.  A lot less time need for each costume.
