Mardi Gras Mannequin, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2012

Mardi Gras is celebrated here in the spring, yet it is promoted all year round. This passive mannequin, displaying Mardi Gras beads and costume jewelry in a shop window, is costumed in an incongruously spongy headdress, and wears this jewelry not only in on her head, but also on her nose. Yet she seems to be quite unaware of her mission. By moving in the subject, I stress the fine details that give this image its incongruous qualities.

Thanks, Sam -- yes, the Coral touch is truly incongruous.

Neat find. Kind of cool to see how they have the mannequin adorned in coral as well.
