NEW ORLEANS– Artist Nora See’s paintings are unique and ornate, but she’s also gotten attention recently for working on the human canvas.

See says, “The first costume I made was in 2013 I don’t do it as a professional endeavor, it’s more just for fun because I enjoy it”

It seems every costume is more stunning that the last.
