Hey,so, I just got back from the Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant WV. It was amazing. The crowds were so fun. People in costumes and crazy t-shirts. Conspiracy was in the air and there was much talk about aliens and men in black. I was lucky to be vending with four of my good friends and we all had a blast.
My favorite part was the pageant. There were over 40 contestants competing for five titles. I was blown away. Then the queens came to my booth and ohhed and awwed over my tiaras. Well, theirs were over a foot high, and I was lusting over theirs. Plus they all had the neatest mothman crystal pin on their sashes. We all want to compete next year just to get the pin and one of those huge tiaras. I heard that I had to be married to run for Mrs. Mothman and all the Ms. Mothmans can not have had a child. I say they obviously need a new category: Divorcee Mothman. We got rid of him and raised our kids up right, so there. I tell you, if I do run, my platform will be portapotties everywhere and fireworks. I do love me some fireworks. What a better way to light the night for all the aliens in town for the weekend? I also plan to bring my megaphone next year. This is the crowd to use it on. Oh what fun I'll have shouting random things out.... Anyway, I added some new photos to the slide show so you can see what fun we had. Check them out.
I have been making all kinds of new tiaras, but just can't get them photographed and on the site. I think I met someone who can help and I can contact her via facebook. Easy peasy. Look for my antique lucite flowers and the light-ups. Oh are they ever fun.
I'm going to do the Yellow Springs show Oct. 13, then stand on the bridge in WV while other jump off on the 20th. If you are in the area, stop by and check out my tiaras.
