For a kind of low key last minute Halloween outing I dressed as Mary Poppins. A coworker had mentioned that he thought I would pull off a good Mary, so I just rolled with it. I bought a new umbrella, the red ribbon, and a blue pencil skirt and then just improvised the rest. I knew it was success when a few parents and kids trick or treating called me Mary.
The annual Halloween Drag Queen Race was postponed from Tuesday to Thursday, which was great, because I forgot about it on Tuesday. I headed with a friend and a group of her coworkers to watch the race, which is more of a parade. The area was packed and some of the outfits were pretty great. A guy with a big fro wig and cheataish outfit won, which was very appropriate. Its funny to watch how slowly some of the contestants "run" the three blocks.
