My first Mardi Gras was experienced on a visit to New Orleans during the coldest celebration in decades. While I was shivering in the wind and getting hit in the head by a blizzard of candy being thrown from the floats I thought wouldn't it be great if I had a mask and a feather boa (because feather boas make everything better). Thus the Winter Mask was born and he needed someone to flirt with, hence Miss Winter. Although you could buy two Winter masks or two Miss Winter masks and the men and women could flirt with the men and women. The possibilities are endless.
