One of the goal you want to achieve at a Mardi Gras party or parade is getting noticed. After all, getting noticed gets you beads and that is part of the fun. One way to make you stand out in the crowd is by wearing a really silly Mardi Gras hat or other type of Mardi Gras headwear such as a crown or headband.
As is tradition, every Mardi Gras party or parade appoints a King and Queen. For this honor, you will need a Mardi Gras crown. A gold or silver grown with lots of faux jewels is the common choice but there are also crowns velvet, jewels and faux fur trim. The most popular choice for Mardi Gras hats is the jester hat. These are perfect for getting you noticed because of their humorous appearance. Plus, they are often accented with bells on the points. Mardi Gras jester hats are always purple, green and gold which represent justice, faith and power. They come in a variety of fabrics including velvet and sequin. You can also get other types of fun hats like pimp hats and derby hats in combinations of purple, gold and green. Mardi Gras headwear consists of fancy showgirl style headdresses with feathers, beads and sequin, and an assortment of hair clips in Mardi Gras colors.
