Bead Giving Season is a-Coming in! Mardi Gras!

Mardi Gras is coming up quick, and the beads are rolling in at New York Costumes. When it's Carnival time, you know you've got to get your beads on.

And, as a matter of fact, we just got a whole new delivery of Mardi Gras beads. Check 'um out:


Mardi Gras Party Beads. These come in multiple single-color strands of beads, with the various strands being in different colors.

In a packaged set, there are 12 strands (necklaces), which include strands in colors: green, purple, gold, red, and blue. In other words, Mardi Gras colors and then some!

Mardi Gras Beads. Not unlike the "Mardi Gras Party Beads," but these packages sets of beaded necklaces contain ONLY Mardi Gras colors. So that is 12 strands of only green, purple, and gold.

Beads are of the 7.5 mm size and come on necklaces that are 33 inches long.


Mardi Gras Braided Beads. Three strands of the classic Mardi Gras colored beads - green, gold, purple - braided together to make a multi-colored necklace. For extra decadence and for that extra special bead-earning reveler. Classic style with some added pizzazz.


Disco Ball Mardi Gras Beads. Mardi Gras beads but with each individual bead in the shape of a mini disco ball. These beads are a little larger and the strands are a tiny bit heavier.




So many variations are available on the classic green, gold, and purple beads. Imagine digging through piles and piles of these shiny beaded strands. That's what we've been doing over here in the East Village at the costume shop. And this is only the tip of the iceberg! Onward into Carnival Season!
