Good to Be Queen--Of Carnival!!!

I was hosting for Radio Riel at the Caledon Carnival party in Wellsian and threw on my Rio samba queen outfit. Little did I know the evening would turn into one of colorful costumes, an irreverent court gargoyle, and a drown'd King...This was not just a costume, it was an experience...I ate too much of the lovely king cake prepared by Miss Rothschild and somehow ended up with the baby, which made me Queen of Carnival!! Here I am with King Puck and our Court Gargoyle, Mr Glineux. There was something about the throne that was making me quite narcoleptic, although given my court members, I needed to be rather alert!
Everyone had fun doing the circle dance! In the background you can see the king cake to the left, and a great spread of spirits and foodstuffs. Crawfish, red beans and rice and seafood gumbo were prepared by Lady Primbroke for the occasion...
At one point, King Puck overindulged and somehow drowned himself. I poked him in the side with my foot. Definitely dead. All hail Queen Elle! He was later revived...dash it...For as long as Sir Tele and I have been friends I can't believe this is the first time that we have ever danced together!
I had a wonderful time being your queen! Laissez les bons temps rouler!!!
