This year I went to Carnaval in West Hollywood (for the first time – what!) as Titania from A Midsummer Night’s Dream accompanied by my friend Demetrius who went as Puck. I loved my costume, but if I’m going to be honest, I probably wasn’t the best fairy queen. In hindsight, I should have had a wand or wings, or something. My main focus was the mask. I saw the mask, I loved the mask and then so tried to come up with a character to fit the mask. I don’t know if that’s the right approach, but that’s what happened. I also like tutus, so I decided to incorporate one of those. So there. That’s the story of my costume for 2012. Next year, I might incorporate some more substantial outerwear… West Hollywood gets cold at midnight or so. The End.
