New Orleans pride displayed in T-shirt designs

In this post, mostly photos from last weekend's Voodoo Fest. The event had been cancelled, but the promoters decided instead to use the event to rally local residents, and to celebrate the efforts of first responders (the latter were allowed in for free). There was a very high number of people wearing T-shirts tagged with familiar New Orleans institutions, or statements about New Orleans. I tried to catch as many as I could, deciding as well to capture the shields and badges of first responders.

My only regret was that I missed the T-shirt which said, "Got Mold."

The "Make Levees Not War" shirt, and a bunch of other shirts with clever slogans, are available at a shop in the 1900 block of Magazine Street (the name escapes me right now) (11/14/05 update) at MetroThree, 2032 Magazine Street, and a variant "make wetlands, not war" is available at Dirty Coast shirts. You can order MetroThree shirts online. Post-Katrina store hours are M-F, 3:30-5:30; Sat., 11-6; Sun., 12-5.

These are available from Dirty Coast Shirts (thanks for the tip humidhaney).

The "Re New Orleans" shirts are being printed by Ropeadope Records.

An enterprising pair of young kids are selling the "NOLA" shirts on the street, along with other original designs.
