|1.||Mardi Gras Clearance Sale|
Strolling through the streets of New Orleans following a hurricane with the sole intent of collecting plastic bead necklaces from past Mardi Gras festivals that have been knocked from the trees by the storm
"Hey, would y'all do me a favor and help repair all this damage to my roof and windows?"
"No, sorry. I was kinda planning on a Mardi Gras Clearance Sale before all the good bead necklaces get taken or thrown away"
|2.||Mardi Gras bead flash|
A custom which originated in New Orleans, but has traveled easily elsewhere, where a young woman displays her boobs (breasts) for Mardi Gras glass bead necklaces.
Tomorrow is Mardi Gras: I will give a Mardi Gras bead flash with my exquisite minatures to the Burbocam as is my custom; after all, I am proud to be a New Orleanian and keep to our historical rights. Blank Katrina!
A big friggin carnival party that lasts one day in France, but lasts for several days here...The capitol of which is in New Orleans, Louisianna. The object is to collect the most extravagant bead necklaces and have fun.
THE GOOD: Parades, celebrations, and exotic costumes. Movie stars. Exotic masks & bead necklaces can cause, wild girls (drunk or sober) to flash their tits to ya in order to get em.
THE BAD: Rare occaisions that deal with pick-pocketers, thugs, drugs, and psychos running around with syringes filled with their HIV infected blood to randomly stab folks wit.
THE UGLY: Mardi Gras can have filthy streets and back allies.
I've been to Mardi Gras too many times...and each time got worse and worse than the one before!

A Candy Kid is a Raver with such a positive vibe that he/she feel she needs to turn himself or herself inside out and wear this vibe. A Candy Kid is not a Candy Kid because of what he/she wears. A Candy Kid is a Candy Kid
because of what's inside. There is a huge amount of positive energy inside and usually the Candy Kid will not give a damn who is watching him/her and will run around the rave like he/she owns it or knows everybody there. There are ravers who are true Candy Kids, yet do not dress the part.
Not all Candy Kids do drugs. Like any other raver, drug usage varies from Kid to Kid. Some Candy Kids come to be high on the music alone.
Believe it or not, Candy Kids are not all gay, straight, or bi. The majority aren't anything at all. They just are themselves.
What most candy kids dress like...For the most part...
The Candy Kid's attire varies greatly from Kid to Kid. Some prefer the LA style faux fur pants.
Faux fur is a synthetic fur fabric made from polyester. The fur comes in various colors, lengths.
The whole pair of pants is made from the faux fur. There may be a stripe or many stripes of a
contrasting fur material going down the side of the leg. Some may choose to take already store
bought jeans and sew in inserts on the sides of the leg. The insert patterns rage from 60's-80's
cartoon characters (smurfs,he-man,snorks,care bears,rainbow brite,get a long gang, star wars,scooby-doo)
to todays modern characters (sesame street, winnie the pooh, arthur, toy story, teenage mutant
ninja turtles, power rangers). Sometimes the inserts will consist of faux fur as well. As well as clothes,
the Candy Kid will have in a huge ammount of floursecent plastic bead necklaces and braclets which are
called, "candy jewlery". The beads are bought at craft strores or toy stores. Some Candy Kids
purchase huge plastic blocks, balls, or links to use as a wallet chain. The Candy Kid also wears a kid's
-they basically love to be unique and have the center of attention and they love to be as "unique" as possible, (while at the same time they are making themselves a clique,)
*not to be confused with emo, although the scene and emo defining line is not completely clear*
-they often have many hair colors at one time.short and spiky on one side, and long bangs on the other side.
---trends with "scene people" right now: strange fascination with dinosaurs and saying "rawr", childrens hair bows and headbands, plastic bright colored jewlry, leggings matched with vintage skirts and old shirts, messager bands with pins on the strap, plaid pants, long bead necklaces, sayings like " he's a cool kid. "
scene person conversation--
person 1-- you are so rad
person 2-- well you are a cool kid
person 1--- well, rawr im a dinosaur how can't i be cool
person 2- *laughs*
