The Weird Sisters at DIY Street Fair
Here’s how I spent my weekend…crammed in my tiny bathroom with my Weird Sisters covering ourselves in silver eye shadow and glitter; being elated and surprised when our rig was already surrounded by eager fair-goers when we showed up to perform; having lots of people ask for photos and receiving a flower from an adorable little girl; seeing so many familiar faces in the crowd as I was spinning from the top of the rig; inhaling delicious veggie street-style tacos two days in a row; having the charming & talented Baker work as our barker and hustle for tips; spending said tips on two new tees from Theatre Bizarre (whose set-up made for a fantastic backdrop); performing to some badass local bands; making the whole crowd help us count 3, 2, 1 for big drops.
Also…being told by a drunken roller skating lesbian that my ass looked reaaaaally good up there; using a stack of flyers for our upcoming performance at a circus wrestling show as an excuse to talk to cute dudes; rewarding ourselves with a massive amount of sushi and Zombie Killer mead.
Also…smiling like an idiot and feeling super lucky and loved. #daaawwwbarf
Seriously though – this weekend was so much fun & we couldn’t have asked for better weather, better sponsors, better crowds. So many friends and family showed up and I got to spend the entire weekend making people smile. There’s a reason we all look deliriously happy in these photos :)
