LA CARMINA ON TUMBLR & PINTEREST! PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT, NYC BROADWAY DRAG MUSICAL, BEACON’S CLOSET.
Arr, we be sailing to new social media territories!
La Carmina is now on Tumblr and Pinterest. Will you be so kind as to add me? I’ll follow back, pinky swear.
These sites contain brand new content: NOT recycled posts from my blog. Think of it as a visual extension of my coffin-cute world: Gothic ballgowns, Jrock hotties, dark lipsticks, nail art inspiration. Thanks to my pirate-pal Alcy for the collaboration.
I’m currently sorting through a mountain of New York Fashion Week photos. Unexpectedly, one of my favorite days was February 16th, when Yukiro and I did nothing NYFW-related.
We met up with Shien Lee, the lovely creator of Dances of Vice (who has thrilling creative projects on the horizon). We went to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to kill all the hipsters.
Or, if you can’t beat them, join them. We spent a good hour in Beacon’s Closet, the motherload of vintage shopping. Shien found a leopard one-piece, breezy black dress, and red London Fog coat. Yukiro got red and black checkered velvet trousers — score.
The three of us had spicy Thai food, followed by thick Honduran hot chocolate at City Bakery.
But the sweetest moment was winning the lottery. Yukiro and I scored front-row tickets to the drag-tacular Broadway musical — Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!
The musical, about three drag queens journeying across the Australian desert, was perfection from start to finish. We gasped at the outrageous costumes (feathered headdresses!) and bopped along to gay anthems (Madonna, Pet Shop Boys, Gloria Gaynor).
Also, feel free to leave a comment with your Tumblr blog link, so that more people can add you.
