With the Fremont Solstice Parade less than a week away, I’ve finally started cobbling together this years costume.  I’m retrofitting last years Halloween costume, which served me well in my role of Empress of Mars (think Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Barsoom series.)
The sewing machine has been unearthed.  Beads and sequins are at the ready.  Just stand back, lest you end up be-glittered collateral damage.
For those who don’t know, for a number of years I’ve been dancing in the parade with the group from Visionary Dance.  Here’s an article on what we do.
Add it to you calendar.  June 18th (this Saturday) at noon, in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle.  Get there early as parking will be sparse.
Here’s some pics from previous parades.
