Though Mardi Gras has been cancelled in New Orleans, this Barbie decided to don her costume, some great sandals, a face mask and march around outside her apartment.

Her costume is from the Rockette's, but is perfect for Mardi Gras! (It's been packed up for a long time, so it needs to loosen up a little...shake it to the music~!)

Kick off my shoes, and won't you join me!"
