Mardi Gras Challenge 2020-Folly chasing Death---
« on: February 07, 2020, 10:10:09 PM »
Yeah, I know I'm probably the only one who cares about this, but:

Tonight is the first parade of the season: The Conde Cavaliers will hit the streets at 7:30 pm, and merriment will be had my all... or at least by most.

The challenge is to create some kind of Mardi Gras themed content, either a skin, mesh, scope, mini-mod, 2-d art (I have this idea involving Death's Jester...), or something. The rules are simple:

Deadline is February 25th (short season: I think the mayor hates Mardi Gras), but if you need a little more time...

Post a pic here so we can enjoy it and give you props.

Have fun.

To get us started:



This is a new character, one of The Lord of Misrule's Miscreants. He is on a scoped mesh that, if you notice, now has thumbs that map to different locations. I put Vigilante's Human Ton skin on it as well.

I can't take full credit, the chest emblem was some stock picture I found on Google, and the Lantern is kittbashed from that.

All of these are great and creative. I'm inclined to join but know squat about the holiday and the festivities attached to it.

Haha, yeah, you have to be from a very specific part of the states to really get it.  I grew up on the Gulf Coast just a few hours from New Orleans, and we had parades every year.  Much tamer than the bacchanalian boondoggle in NO, but a lot of fun as a kid.

Just google Mardi Gras in Images and you can get plenty of ideas. Or you can just take a character and change the colors of the costume to green, gold, and purple, and say that's it. Pretty much everybody around here does that, draping the colors over everything and claiming they have a Mardi Gras sale.

Hm. I still don't quite get it. Google says it's about pancakes? So like back when church had restrictions on certain foods it was like a day off? Mostly it always seemed like a pub day to me. Anyways thanks, you reminded me that Valentine's Candy is 75% off at the dollar store on Monday. Time to eat more heart shaped peanut cups than humanly possible. That's my superpower.  :P

It's supposed to be the last blow-out before Lent. Not pancakes, King Cakes. And Funnel Cakes. And more candy than any human needs. Mobile used to be a lot more Catholic than it is these days, but all us heathens decided we liked the holiday so...

Oh, and lots and lots of drinking. That is why I have this idea about a picture of DJ.

Neptune's Daughters Parade tonight, but I can't do an assortment of aquatic ladies in green, gold, and purple, so here is just a bunch of characters.
