Mummers in the house

02Jan11

Froggy Brigade Mummer, Philadelphia, Jan. 1, 2011
The coloration on this member of the Froggy Carr New Year’s Brigade has military overtones for me — hints of camouflage green, the face painting before going into jungle combat, the patriotism, the earnestness. At the same time, the wig gives him a Native American look, another face-painting twist. None of which truly figured in the wench club’s theme,  “Forty Froggin Years.”
