FACE PAINTING IS A TRADITIONAL LOUISIANA ART-FORM,
you can see it on Mardi Gras Indians and members of Mardi Gras parade krewes and marching groups. And Saints and LSU fans love getting their faces painted!
Here are a couple of pictures of Mardi Gras Indian, street performing on Jackson Square, I painted his face to match his suit.
New Orleans Society of Dance is one of New Orleans Baby Dolls groups - these are female dancing groups performing during Mardi Gras and other festivals, parties and events.
I have been working with them as a face-painter for several years, and did their make-up for Spike Lee documentarie and several photo-shoots. Call 404-717-2350 to book them for a party or an event.
SAINTS FACE PAINTING
Here are some pictures from Saints tailgate parties. I paints lots of leur-de-lis on people on the street and at private parties - and in 2010 most of my face-painting was black-and-gold!
MARDI GRAS MASKS
I have a lot of requests for Mardi Gras masks - so here are some pictures of adults and teens from different years. I hardly ever take pictures during Mardi Gras as I am crazy busy on parade route, Bourbon street and at private parties... I paint lots and lots of Mardi Gras masks during Carnival and at all festivals, as this is the most popular choice for women and I call them "princess faces" for girls. There's also Mardi Gras page on original web-site www.face-painter.com
