Cherry Blossoms & Space-Age Burlesque – Part 1

A couple of weeks ago, some friends and I went to an art exhibit and burlesque show, Countdown to Yuri’s Night at Astro Pop Events in DC.  But before that, we hung out on the National Mall to see the cherry blossoms, while they were still in bloom.  Since we took so many pictures, I’ve created separate posts for the Countdown to Yuri’s event.

 

Here’s how I did my makeup.  I wore pink and crystal bindis to celebrate the cherry blossoms:

Our friend, Denis, decided to join us for the cherry blossoms.  I used to work with him and I haven’t seen him in ages.  I enjoyed working with him, so it was nice seeing him.  A very pleasant surprise!

My fabulous BFF decided to change in the middle of the cherry blossoms.  Absolutely brilliant!  When one fly outfit is not enough:

Z spots a tall, dark and handsome man, wearing a traditional African garment.  We needed photographic documentation of this man, STAT!  So we ran down the street to catch up with him:

Gasp!  More fabulous people!  In a city known for government, lobbyists, Ann Taylor dresses, and gray suits, this is always nice to see.  I will always have a special place in my heart for adults in costume:

Z looked so amazing that everyone wanted a picture with her.  Ms. Z - always the life of the party!
