Now available: our tricentennial zine!

Rewind a year here: For New Orlean’s tricentennial in 2018, Skeleton Krewe designed skull masks and costumes representing characters from New Orleans history, and each member submitted an illustration for a zine that we handed out on Mardi Gras day. Now you can order a copy on MagCloud! (And of course come see us and grab a copy of our new 2019 zine next Tuesday morning! See our parade schedule here!)
