There’s a lovely fellow Greenpoint lady named Ruth who makes these amazing paper dolls. She recently turned a few designs into life size fairytale costumes and showcased them in a fashion show called Frisky Faeries. It took place on Friday and I had the fortune of dressing up in nothing but lingerie, face paint, and wings, acting as a cherub to dress and undress our said frisky faerie. It was pretty embarrassing and slightly traumatic to get down low and dirty considering my rolly polly belly was not prepared for such exposure. But there was fun to be had with copious amounts of wine. Metromix has a great collection of photos.
