When Costume College 2014 announced that the theme for the Friday Night Social was “Club Ice” & made allusions to bling, sparkle, diamonds, rhinestones, & the like, well, I took this as a personal challenge to wear something eye-blindingly sparkly. I went through a lot of options of what to make or buy & finally settled on this fairly cheap sequined column dress from a Chinese vendor on eBay. The strapless bra I had to buy to wear with it cost more! Then I wore my traditional drag queen wig & a every last rhinestone I own, plus more that I bought (& got two new necklaces that I cut & wired / glued together to make a bigger bib necklace). Also, drag makeup, though I still can’t get it as good as the queens I admire.
Still, it was a fun outfit, and I may have had my photo taken more wearing this than at any point since my wedding. Historical costumes, pshaw, I was apparently meant to wear cheap flash!
