A royal evening

On Saturday, hubby Paul Schuetze and I headed to Springhill for the Krewe of Artemis-Springhill Royalty Coronation VI.

King Artemis VI Charles Jacobs of Springhill, and Queen Julia Collins of Benton, greet their subjects in the photo above.

Other members of the court: Duke and Duchess of Mystery Karl Miller of Springhill and Caytie Green of Shreveport; Music Terry and Lisa Warner of Benton; and Merriment Johnnie K. Hill of Springhill, and Kathy Camp of Emerson, Ark.

And, in charge of it all for the 2008 season — Captain David Brice.

Always, we have a great time with the Artemis krewe. Their coronations and balls are done with panache, cleverness and creativity. I am always surprised and delighted with it all.

This year’s theme was "Experiencing the ‘70s."

Shreveporters Clayton and Angela Brakeville in the second photo were among those dressed in costume for the occasion.

So upon arrival, we received peace sign necklaces and later I tied one of 2007 Capt. Eric Simmons’ autographed peach tie-dye kerchief around my head — ‘70s style!

More signs of the times — ‘70s times — bright stylized flowers; Happy Face beach balls bouncing from the ceiling as the pageant got underway; a glowing peace sign, tie-dye fabric wrapped columns and a black screen with a tie-dye starbust at center stage.
