Costumed Zebra

Not only is the Zebra fascinating, so is the entire shop, inside and out.

Lucy in Disguise.

Carmen Miranda Zebra

A flamboyantly garbed zebra statue -- which we can only assume is named "Lucy" -- stands atop the Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds costume store. The large shop is stuffed with rack upon rack of garish clothing and accessories. If you really need a king's crown and a feather boa while in Austin, this is the place.

It's in a popular tourist area (same street as the cowboy riding a jackalope).
