Krewe de Zoo

One of my favorite Kansas City Mardi Gras Krewe's is the Krewe de Zoo. It's an all female krewe that dress like animals, obviously! Here are some of the gals at this year's Fat Tuesday parade.

Yawning Pandas

Inspired by the Buzzfeed, I have been on a panda kick all day! 

Did you know that there are roughly 1,000 pandas left on the world? Most of the information found on them comes from studies done in zoos, since the wild panda are pretty rare and exclusive. 

I think next year for Mardi Gras, I'll dress like a sparkly Panda!

Until then, I'll just rock this panda purse

Mardi Gras!

Don't forget Tuesday the 8th is Fat Tuesday! Here at The Jungle Store we will to dress as our favorite animal for that day. This year I'm going to be a peacock! Here's a sneak peak at the beginnings of my mask.

Purple Dinosaur Mask would pair great with a feathered boa and beads!
For a challenge, throughout the day morph in to a beautiful butterfly topping it off with this mask. 

Try not to scary too many people with this white tiger mask!

National Pig Day!

"No man should be allowed to be President who does not understand hogs." - President Harry Truman

Did you know pigs are as brainy as dogs and often use their snouts as tools to nudge open latches or dig under fences? Even though pigs may have a reputation for being lazy, they’re fast runners.

Since pigs grow quickly, doubling their weight within a week of birth, a single piglet would grow too fast for the director to film all the scenes needed in the movie Babe. They had to bred 46 pigs just for the movie.
