NOLA Costume Ideas: Saints Marching In

It's no secret I'm not really a sports person, in fact I've been known to cry when some clueless spouse "invited" me to a basketball game on Valentine's Day (and that was pre-hormones). So suffice it to say, this is not really an area of expertise for me. Apparently New Orleans has a football team. Apparently they won a superbowl or something. And just this week, they sat down to eat a po' boy with President Obama. I don't know much about any of that, but I DO appreciate gold lame pants, feather boas, and the costume inspiration this team can bring to my NOLA party. Here are a few pics to get your wheels turning:

Especially if you mixed it with some hats and instruments like these:
