The Louisiana Bayou is known for extravagant crawfish boils that boggle the mind and push the limits of human consumption. They often involve giant vats of crawfish simmering in a spicy hellbroth with potatoes, cobs of corn and other local delicacies. Of course, Louisiana and New Orleans in particular is also known for Mardi Gras, where Christians spend one last Tuesday celebrating in excess before the lean abstaining times of lent. So, it was only a matter of time before these two cultural phenomenons collided head-on in something like this Mardi Gras Crawdaddy costume.
This Mardi Gras Crawdaddy costume looks like it just stepped right off of Bourbon street. It is made from comfortable, professional-grade materials like supple polyester. It is also a somewhat tall costume on the inside and out for people who are slightly above average in height. It looks very much like a red, freshly boiled crawfish in scarlet red with cartoon eyes and antennae. It comes with red crawfish tunic, hood, and claw-gloves.
