BOWIEMAS 2011

For seven years now, there's been a group of people who have been putting together this outrageous event called Bowiemas. Basically every year, on David Bowie's birthday, Seattle gathers together for a night of glitter, debauchery and drag to celebrate and honor the man himself. I remember going to the second annual Bowiemas (where then it was hosted at this fairly small artist loft) there were so many people crowded into the second level space, that from downstairs it looked like the floor was about to cave in. Over the years the party has gained more and more popularity and has become somewhat of a tradition to Seattle. Living in San Francisco the past three years I've had to miss out on all the past Bowiemas'. But now that I'm back I made sure I didn't miss this year's celebration.




I decided to portray David Bowie from the 'Diamond Dogs' album

How did I not know there was a Bowie party?! This actually looks like the best party ever... and I have been to some pretty decent parties.

I think next year I need to road trip to Bowiemas... and there will be a giant lightning bolt on my face.
