The Krewe Captain is Carl Mack of the Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes and Culture.

When your collection of Mardi Gras costumes would keep Cher, Elton John and Beyonce in business forever, you need to figure out a way to do something with all the clothes.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood says the man with the collection is Carl Mack.

Carl opened a costume business in New Orleans 20 years ago.  He's got a costume for everybody and every body.

Now, Carl's collection is ready for everybody to see.  It's part of his just opened Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes & Culture.

Carl's got the costumes.

Carlos Gonzalez has the culture with his collection of photographs of Mardi Gras Indians.
