“Female Eye”, costume design, Krewe of Comus, New Orleans Mardi Gras, 1869

It was Comus, who, in 1857, saved and transformed the dying flame of the old Creole Carnival with his enchanter’s cup; it was Comus who introduced torch lit processions and thematic floats to Mardi Gras; and it was Comus who ritually closed, and still closes, the most cherished festivities of New Orleans with splendor and pomp. - Wiki
