As of Mardi Gras 2022, Krewe de Seuss officially began its metamorphosis into something new, Kreweleidoscope. Much of what we have already created will remain and become the backbone aesthetic for our new krewe. The combined 10 year effort of building Seuss contraptions and costumes will serve as a launching-off point to create something NEW going forward.
Kreweleidoscope is a world envisioned and created by Atomic Blacksmiths & Cobbler Astronauts. A world of Antigravity Burlesque, Electrified Apothecary, Lamplighters with Lasers & Hydraulic Haberdashers.
Kreweleidoscope is the whimsical juxtaposition of a future that never came to be, and a past that didn’t quite go down like that…”
- You will be responsible for creating and funding your own costume. But don’t let this be a daunting thing. We have a handful of super helpful krewe members that will gladly help you create your vision very affordably. It’s amazing what can be made with duct tape, cardboard, and furry fuzzy scraps!
- Every member will be expected to participate with the krewe in some capacity, outside of Mardi Gras. This might include creating our signature throws, crafting new instruments, helping out with our floats/contraptions, etc. We will have several “workshop” sessions between now and the parade – be sure to get in the mix!
For general themes & inspiration please use the following as a guideline:
- Colorful Retro-Futurism
- French Circus/Carnival
- Colorful Jules Verne

For 2024, Kreweleidoscope will roll as a subkrewe of both Mosaique (downtown, 1/13/24), and Krewe of Alla (uptown, 2/2/24). As such, there may be more than one set of Krewe dues to pay this year, if you plan on rolling in more than one parade. All fees go toward city permits, security escorts, warehouse/storage rentals for krewe floats, and various costs to produce signature krewe throws, and float construction materials.
