Homecoming Fru-fru

I posted last year about the Texas tradition of the Homecoming Mum and how elaborate they can be. Last night was the Homecoming over at Ballyhoo, and I got lots of lovely photographic evidence of this time-honored regalia (click on the picture for the enlarged version):

Notice that young men actually wear smaller versions on their arm, and that many of the girls' mums actually LIGHT UP (as evidenced by the photographs in the lower right corner of the collage). The Homecoming Mum is a serious affair, no doubt.
