Norma came as a fairy. I came as an elder, overweight Lafayette. Replete with black red-lined cape. An Ausie hat with flipped up bill, banded with perfectly scaled Carnival tricolor beads, and pined on the up-flap with a jeweler's pin in the shape of a crown and set with Carnival tricolor glass jewels. Clipping zee cape at neck waddle was a large flat African-looking red-and-black choker, and the cape's silk ties. Down an ample chest hung a French tricolor string of beads separated with tiny gold studs and ending in a flat white plaster pendant with the engraved image of a dainty little Lafayette. The piece de resistance was a black bow tie proudly tieing off my white breeches at the equator.
