Yet Even MORE Fantasy Fest Photos!

Warning: a couple of photos may offend those with very delicate sensibilities

... from various years past (click to enlarge)


very nice body painting


Batman and I hanging out on Duval Street -- as you can see, I'm quite cheerful about this


this is probably my favorite Fantasy Fest photo ever


and yet more body painting


I don't want to know how long it took to make these outfits


Fan-tastic!


Birds of a Feather


me and the hatter-- who is quite, quite Mad


me and a random showgirl, whose outfit I was ogling all evening


skeleton body painters


and yet more skeletons


painted couple


cute balloon men


body painter


a very tall drag queen


That's all folks -- this blog now has way too many photos.

Hopefully, my Fantasy Fest plans will not be cancelled by Hurricane Wilma.... I may or may not be blogging again this week because I will be acquiring hurricane supplies and hanging out in Key West (I hope) until the 31st.

cheers

The showgirl has a lovely face -- and so do you, of course! I wish I had your figure! Stay safe.

How in the world is that bodypainting done?? Is it an airbrush?

Wow! What amazing outfits. And body paintings. And feathers n stuff. You look lovely (of course) but I'd really like one of them Batman outfits - the ones with the hunky nicely-muscled fellas in them. Please send two as I'm greedy, fickle and easily bored. Thank you kindly

Those are cool! I'm so happy that I now have dsl & don't have to wait three years to see all the photos & comment. Hooray.

I especially like the first one - a celestial body!

You look thrilled to be with Batman, lucky girl!

While you look so darn cute I am glad this is the last day of photos for a while.
It is extremely hard for me not to make rude comments about the other lesser people in those photos..

Awww, those pics made me miss Key West. I lived there for over 3 years. Good times. I hope KW stays safe from Wilma and FF doesn't get rained out!

Wow. What amazing things to see. My question is, how do the body painters get anywhere with out it rubbing off? I mean, they can't sit down, so do they get it done there?

Forgive me, I'm a naieve Easterner.

Man, I wish I could go. Stay safe down there! And if you don't mind, I think I might borrow your polka dotted shoes that are still in my closet. :o) They're getting bored in there!

Lippy: yeah, he looks like a fun toy, doesn't he?

mr. Anigans: I'm sorry if I've offended your quite delicate constitution with these posts

moos: unfortunately for me, he was gay

Happy&Blue: I wanted to post some from THIS year... but now it looks like that won't happen

Brenda: it is, although I usually don't as I'm far too busy people-watching...

Sarah: I'm still waiting to hear how bad the damage is...

NPR Junkie: it does peel off a bit after a while if someone sweats a lot. People tend to get it done in the late afternoon, then walk around very carefully. They'll get it done all over again the next day...

April: I may be in town this week, if it does get cancelled (which looks likely). I'll give you a call if that happens & maybe we could do something

WOW! You surprise me. You DO think and act like an artist! These pics rock! I'm green with jealousy for the other yrs when the Fantasty Fest occurred. (I'm so sorry Wilma affected this celeb and more reasons than that.)

If it's open to married couples who are not swingers, but love costumes and art, this is an event I'd like to plan on attending in the future. WOW! WIll be showing my hubby these shots.
(I should read up on what else is entailed in Fantasy Fest before continuing but it's near 3 a.m.) YOu look FAB, BTW!!!!!

wow, they don't have a fantasy fest in my part of the woods although there have been bodies painted and feathers attached, if you consider tar a form of paint.

Green-Eyed Lady: it's definitely open to everyone, although there do seem to be an awful lot of swingers there lately. It was actually started by the gay community there though. And it's always a blast

Mark: hmmm.... that sounds exciting as well, but not in a good way
