A friend and I dressed up and went to the Santa Monica Blvd. Carnaval in West Hollywood. 400,000 people there. Really really REALLY cool costumes.
Here you can see just a few of the fabulous costumes I saw there. Below are costumes made of bubblewrap!!!
This one is very patriotic. And next to them... something glowing.
These cops got into the spirit of things with a pony-girl. Cops and bondage; yay!
Waiting in line at a grocery store to use the bathroom. I thought it appropriate that the line went through the toilet tissue aisle.
There were 5 stages there and we got to see a lot of bands. This is a picture of a band called The Romantics.
And we danced. A lot. My feet hurt. And it was REALLY crowded. But totally fun!
Anyway, I just loved seeing all the costumes, especially the more outrageous ones. And the drag queens -- gotta love the drag queens. If I go back next year, I'll have to wear a spiffy, more elaborate costume. But no pony-girl get up. I can be extreme, but not THAT extreme. :-)
