Larry Youngblood was one of New Orleans preeminent Mardi Gras costume designers from 1946 to 1998. During that 52 year period he designed for over forty clubs as well as the theatre, opera, ballet, Spring Fiesta and for private clients. His stories and memories are as colorful and outrageous as his costumes were beautiful and spectacular. Through countless interviews and years of recounting stories during visits, Larry's niece, Liz (Elizabeth) Canik was able to complete what Larry started a decade earlier, revealing what a stellar career he had. Though interrupted by the death of her father Peter, Larry's beloved oldest brother, Hurricane Katrina and the death of Larry himself, Liz was able to complete the book five years after his death. She lives in Covington, Louisiana with her family.
