Out on tha town.
For the Art Show Gala at Noreascon 4, Kimberly and I decided to wear fancy outfits. I've always admired zoot suits (loved the movie Zoot Suit with Edward James Olmos), and wanted to make one for myself. To top it off, I could wear a 4-inch brimmed Tando hat, with pheasant feather! Kimberly's favorite color is yellow, so I incorporated yellow elements into my outfit to match. Basically, Kimberly and I just wanted to have fun. One doesn't see goldenrod yellow too often, so we knew these hip outfits would produce many stares. We are happy to note that many con goers enjoyed our "lemony fresh" take on zooter style.
