When it comes to costuming, we know that New Orleans pretty much blows the competition away, and that is no different when it comes to Halloween. While others dress up one night a year to welcome in the spirits and ghosts of those who’ve passed, we like to spread the holiday out for weeks — spookifying our homes as much as ourselves. Because why not have another excuse for a party, a festival, and for a major costume session? We collected photos during that events, and a big thank you to all who submitted your photos. Now go get your spook on, everybody, and have a great Halloween!
