I am still wading through my photos – I expect to completely reconfigure my site with a separate section for AIDS Lifecycle by the time I’m through posting everything – but thought I would share the best tutu photos with you now. So, here they are: seven days of fabulousness!
Day 1, at ride-out:
Day Two, with the fabulous drag queen Ginger Brewlay:
This purple beauty was shot (and copyright) by Brian Hodes, the official AIDS Lifecycle photographer, as I was cresting Quadbuster, one of the steepest hills on the ride, on Day 3.
For Day Four (and the Halfway Point), I made certain to wear my most formal tutu, based on an Elizabethan gown:
…and on Day 5, I donned a corset and partied it up with a bunch of Bavarian milkmaids/flower girls:
Day Six saw me in a champagne silk top with red silk velvet collar, and a cloth-of-gold tutu:
And Day Seven found me in a FABULOUS peacock-feather outfit. The blue is peacock body and neck feathers, the green is peacock back feathers, and the bottom is peacock tail feathers over cloth-of-gold. Every one of the body feathers is hand-sewn, and I’m pretty sure there are over 1000 of them.
Despite SPF 30, I was getting pretty suntanned/sunburned by this point, as you can see in the photo.
And that’s it! Seven days of fabulousness. See you next year!
