Record-holding captain

Gemini Captain XVIII Brad Graff is a record holder.

His royal- and Dior blue-and-green collar — 14-feet tall and 12-feet wide — is the largest and tallest collar ever worn by a Gemini captain, said Mike Moreau, a former Gemini king who has designed the krewe’s costumes for years.

With a three-dimensional design of a medieval castle on front and his family crest on back, it was a stunner. The look was completed with a replica of a "Lord of the Rings" helmet and he carried a sword.

But he marched down the ramp to "Jeremiah was a bullfrog ... Joy to the World!" (All the time, expertly balancing the collar!)
