BLVD & Qpium Evolution Mardi Gras

I had forgotten about it till Leanna reminded me Saturday. So, we planned to get all dressed up for Mardi Gras and check this thing out. I had a great time at the last fashion show I attended and had the notion of something similar in my head, going into the Mardi Gras. Ok, it said there’d be floats and all but I just couldn’t picture this. Oh my was I in for a surprise!

Before I begin, I’m just gonna focus on a few things, afterall, there were fourteen floats (yes, 14). And there were maybe forty models (yes 40) and by my count over 180 peeps on the four sims! So, if you would like more photos I uploaded about 20 Mardi Gras photos on Flickr.

The King & The Queen

The event went on for two hours but at the end, the King & Queen of the Mardi Gras was announced as he & he turned onto the parade route, and it was King Anastasia Markova & last minute surprise Queen, Frolic Mills.

Yordie (in pink & turquoise) and Leanna (white feathers).

I haven’t been to enough fashion shows to really know all the nuances, but this was an extravagance by all of Second Life’s standards! It was planned beautifully to manage the huge crowd and hey, the peeps in the streets were great! And after their floats went through, even the models joined us. It was just a blast!

Laissez les bon temps roullez!

So, I guess I’m back to being a Second Life socialite. Oh yeah, and Leanna has some pics in her post too.
