Cheery Cherry Blossoms

It appears Wilmington, North Cackalacky wasn't the only place this weekend where people went a tad bit crazy on their fashion sense. I'm tellin' ya, I saw some pictures of folks right here in my hometown that looked like they fell down the rabbit hole and ended up where Alice did in Wonderland. WHOO WEE, believe me when I tell ya, the mad hatter ain't got nuthin' on them.

But apparently up north in Washington, DC for the cherry blossom festival people break out some funny attire too. The difference between there and here: the DC folks actually realize they are wearing a costume. Check out some of these gems my friend Mindy saw up close and personal:
The Asian cross dressing Dorothy and Toto.
Wearing the white house on your head.
The cat in the hat with dreads.
Damn straight!!!

  2. I'm assuming these people are complete strangers to Mindy. It is hilarious that she got them to pose for her. Festivals always seem to bring the crazy out of folks.

  3. The cat in the hat has nothing on him, then again only the last guy knows what awesome looks like.

  6. While it isn't unusual to see people dressed as if they are in costume but aren't actually..here in Kansas City, it would be unusual for them to let a stranger take there pictures. Your friend, Mindy must have a very approachable personality.
