    For those of you who aren’t from New Orleans and don’t know about Muses, I’m going to give you the back story. Back in 2000, a few women decided to start an all-female Mardi Gras krewe that would roll on the traditional Uptown parade route at night. It was a big deal and I hopped on board the first year. I’m not sure if it happened the first year or within the first few years, but someone decided we should decorate shoes as an homage to Zulu and their decorated coconuts. Women and shoes, right? So when you are amongst 800 women doing the same thing, you have to sit down and think, how do I make this mine? I had all these scrap 5x7 photos from the darkroom—they were either too dark or too light or had spots from toners—whatever it was, they were crap prints. So I decided to cut up the prints and put them on my shoes—if you were a My Morning Jacket fan, wouldn’t you really dig a Jim James shoe? I thought so. Over the years, my Muses shoes have become my year in review—I look back at everybody I photographed since the last Mardi Gras, pick about 15-25 images and that is what I sit down to work with. And somewhere along the way, I decided that if a musician had passed away in that time frame, I would honor that person in the mix. In the last decade or so, handmade throws have become the most coveted Mardi Gras catch! Muses shoes, Nyx purses, Tucks plungers, Iris sunglasses, Alla genie lamps, Athena fedoras. Follow @kreweofmuses to see some amazing shoes. We roll two weeks from today, tHERsday, February 28th, at 6:30pm, Magazine and Jefferson. #muses #kreweofmuses #musesshoes #mardigras #handmadethrows #neworleans #RIParethafranklin #michelleobama #tromboneshorty #chawa #jwanboudreaux #spyboyj #erikagoldring
