Alturiak ~ The Claws of Winter ~ Let the Good Times Roll ... It's Mardi Gras ~ Feb contest 2018

Welcome to the month of Alturiak, several different events are observed during the month, some cultures celebrate love and romance, some hold religious observances and some just party till they drop.

A well known celebration in many cultures and countries is Mardi Gras which has a long and rich history, the part that sometimes is forgotten, it is the forerunner to Ash Wednesday and the period known as Lent in the Christian calendar.

Yes, Lent the period of fasting and somber reflection, so what to do but throw a party before the season and eat and drink as much of all the rich food and drink you want and as they say "Let the Good Times Roll"

So your challenge is to show your characters having a grand ole time partying, it can be wild and crazy ... it can be a rich feast with food and drink never-ending ... it could be dressing up in costumes, with or without masks ... it could be dancing till the sun goes down and comes back up again.

Or all of the above ....

Standard rules apply as always, up to three entries per member, not entered in a contest anywhere else and must be original work.

This shall run until midnight, Wednesday February 28th.

Album is HERE

Well, that is certainly an unique twist, would love to see someone run with that theme ... who says the undead do not want to party and celebrate

If you think Mardi Gras requires some sort of special costume, think again. Most costumes are home-made with some crafty cleverness. Just so you can see, here is a video of a street parade with just ordinary people walking in the parade. Take a look at what they're wearing. You can just skip through or watch the whole thing, whichever you like:





See if you can't find some ideas!

It's only down at Carnival in South and Central America where you get some fancy stuff, but that's mostly the Samba Dancers. If you want to go look those up you're on your own because I don't want to be blamed for leading you astray or shocking you. Some of them are pretty racy!
