Carnaval here in Austin was on Saturday night, and here is my costume! I planned it out a couple of weeks in advance and then finished it in about three days. Everything but the shoes I made. Unfortunately we didn't take pictures until we got there, and the top I made was already starting to come apart. Next year I know to make it sturdier. The gold body paint was also gone from the back of my legs - this morning I discovered it all on the seat of my car. Tongue  I also made my hubby a matching mask, which is as close to a costume as he gets. Smiley

How dangerous and fun! I'm a sucker for peacock-themed costumery, and especially like your man's mask. Smiley

It's your mom!

What a great costume! I love the fact that the photo of it on the dress form gives absolutely no hint of how spectacular it'll look on you. But next year you gotta work on the hubby - a nice mask, but it just can compete!

And Austin is obviously a lot more fun than I would have guessed.

Thanks guys! As far as being brave, I'm really not that much. My costume was actually very modest compared to many there.  Shocked And yes, Austin is a lot of fun!
