Stranger Danger!

Today is Day Eight of
Thirty Days of Photography II.

Today's photo topic: STRANGER

Let's see how well you know me now.

Which one of these two people is the stranger?

Yes. You are right. The chick on the right.

The chick on the left is Mike who isn't a chick. He and his wife have the booth across from our booth, Pent-Up Photos, at the Zapp Hall Antique Show.  He and his wife use vintage pieces of common day items from long ago and use them to create beautiful works of art. Most of their  artwork carries the label of industrial. Their art work is beautiful.

So are Mike's legs.

I only see Mike dressed like this twice a year for the famous the Junk Gypsy Junk-O-Rama Prom. Who says that Texas is conservative? I do. Texas is ultra conservative. However, no one who attends the Junk-O-Rama Prom is concerned with being conservative. Well, maybe they are, but they leave early before the prom really gets going.

The Zapp Hall Antique Show and the Junk Gypsy Junk-O-Rama Prom is part of Texas Antique Week which is one of the two biggest antique shows in the country. It is a big deal.

Like Mike's boobs.

Who is the chick on the right? I haven't the foggiest. I know that she has a great prom dress and her head dress is the bomb! You know that junkers have this weird fascination with vintage doll parts, right? Well, now you know. 

You might be wondering if Mike's costume ever changes? Yes and no. I know that every year he wears the same dress and heels, but the dress seems to get shorter and shorter every year while his boobs seems to get larger and larger. 

This year his boobs lit up.

Lots of folks were lit.

Now that I am back from prom,
I'm gonna catch up on all the other participants' photos.
Want to do the same?
Just go here:

WHAT is that woman supposed to be? That doll-hat is outrageously amazing. As are Mike's legs and lit boobs.

Ziva said...

Ohh my god, I wish I had legs like Mike! Not the mention the boobs.. Very impressive, indeed. And that head thingy, I can't decide if it's fantastic, or just scary as hell. ;)

Unfinished Person said...

In answer to Ziva's question, scary as hell.

As for the photo itself, you win today's round for the most disturbing photo. Congratulations. ;)

Mike has the best legs I've ever seen after my own. I love the hat with the dead baby on top. Great photo!

Strangely enough, Mike looks very comfortable. This is a wild shot and I keep looking at it and noticing more and more details. Fun Photo!!

I'm very jealous of Mike's legs! And how does he get those stockings to stay up without garters? The doll thing though, I find a bit disturbing; but then again most dismembered things do :-/

I love the color in this photo: high intensity red and blue, offset by the black and white :-)

Finally, Texas appears to be stranger than I thought :-)

That woman might be strange but believe me Mike is stranger! Great pic.

Katherine said...

How did you get a picture of my parents!??!?!

mo.stoneskin said...

Every so slightly disturbing. Plus very strange. I couldn't imagine anything stranger...

Um, Mike doesn't look anything like the Facebook picture that appears when I click on his link. I also didn't know that "Janet" was used as a boy's name either, as a middle name or otherwise. Oh, I get it now - Janet is Mike's wife and Mike isn't really a cross-dresser.

Ha! Phun photo!

I can't decide who's hawter, Mike or Mike's wife. I may have to court them both.

Nice photo, Malisa. Funny. And you have some strange friends. Very strange.

Kristen said...

Love the photo. I want to come to texas! I want to go to the prom! I want Mike's legs!
