David Weatherly knows firsthand the amount of energy that goes into making Mardi Gras so fantastic.
He has been working on his "Personal Mardi Gras Float" on and off since 2009.
How cool is this giant wearable face?
David had to design the face to be worn, which can be quite challenging.
There is a metal support that attaches the sculpture to the person wearing it.
The rest of the face is made mostly out of cardboard. Each year David alters the face; this year it got lips!
