So, it’s nearing the end of February and y’all know what that means, right? Fat Tuesday! The day it’s ok to be fat on Tuesday. Ok, maybe not that but it does mean that Mardis Gras aka the “Carnival season” is coming soon. Whether just celebrating the day before the Christian Ash Wednesday (1st day of Lent) or encompassing the entire period from Kings day (Epiphany) to Fat Tuesday, it is pretty well known for costumes, masks, defiance of social conventions, parades, and beads, can’t forget the beads. Not sure how far back the beads go but the actual event can be traced back to Medieval history.
Reader Seapeach1 had asked if we’d talk about it here at Addicts and I thought it was a great idea. While I doubt EA will tie in this event with the game, it’s always nice to revisit Simpsons episodes and like Bart Simpson says, “Mardi Gras, man. When the Big Easy calls, ya gotta accept the charges.”

What’s crackalackin Addicts?
Well, it’s 3D Thursday and I thought today we could have some fun in Krustyland (KL) for a change. I don’t know about you but my poor theme park has been pretty neglected for quite a while. Sure I threw my new rides from the various holiday events in there but haven’t done much else.
Well, I’m ashamed of myself. I’m a Disneyland Annual Passholder and go all the time and still have a so-so KL. You’d never guess how much I love amusement parks by looking at my designs. (Well, the pathway to the castle with the Krusty Statue in front of it might give you a guess but that’s not the point.) Thankfully, other Addicts aren’t as neglectful of KL as me. Over at TOuk, I saw this amazing 3D Design from Steven Itman and liked it a bunch. With his permission, I thought we’d do a little 3D tutorial. Sound good? If yes, click more….
