Mardi Gras jackets

Many Mardi Gras members wear Mardi Gras-themed jackets, which have become quite a seasonal uniform.

Each is different.

For instance John Manno Jr. and Angelina Manno wear ones with the traditional purple, gold and green colors.

Gemini Captain Brad Graff and wife Sally Graff’s black jackets shimmer with silver. Krewe of Justinian Duchess XIII Trudy Daniel’s white one is a work of art. Her mother, Azalea Daniel, painted a garland of flowers that rope around the jacket. They are in Mardi Gras colors, but very soft interpretations.

"It was a labor of love," said Daniel.
