Elvis Has Left the Building!

The ball is over and the cat's out of the bag. The theme this year was museums, and Miss Ginger was inspired by Nutwood Beth's post about the Googie Signage museum in Las Vegas, and this was the result! The sign lit and the star flashed, and everything was controlled by switches in the microphone.  It was a fun costume and the crowd really seemed to like it.  Miss G brought it home intact, so she's going to wire it to a 12 volt transformer and use it as garden art! 




As always, King and Queen Olympus are revealed at the end of the ball.  So here is QOXLI:







That's right, dear Ginger Snaps!  Your own Miss Ginger Grant has been named Queen of the Mardi Gras for the Krewe of Olympus, Texas, Inc!  This is her reveal photo as Marie Antionette!!  More later- the Queen's presence is required at her first state event- brunch in her honor!  More later!!

OH.MY.GOD! tHIS MAY BE THE BEST YET! Who knew you would make such a great Elvis. And what a great idea for the sign in the garden as a conversation piece. It looks so like the real thing honey, and all hail the great Queen of Texas!!!!!

@Dan:
Krewe members customarily bow or courtsey when first gaining the presence of the royalty. It is not expected of the general public, but many do to show their respects.
