Cape Rehearsal (The Hooded Cape Show at Bows + Arrows)

The Bows In the Hood: Come to the Bows Collective First Ever Fashion Show in the New Location.
Have I mentioned that I'm going to be IN a fashion show? Yeah, my 30 seconds of fame are going to be used up strutting my stuff tomorrow night at the Hooded Cape Show at Bows + Arrows. A handful of local designers/artists were asked to create custom hooded capes for this premier fashion show at the new Bows location, and our local fave, Lindsay Rickman was one of them. She did me the great honor (and opportunity to make a fool of myself in public!) of asking me to model one of her capes for the show. So that's what I'll be doing. 
The photos you see here are ones I snapped during our rehearsal. And look around, would ya? I was stunned by the all the gorgeousness going on, beautiful women, beautiful capes and one handsome man. He's Lindsay's other model, and no stranger to snazzy dressing. The whole group seemed unnaturally attractive, and all were super friendly + creative sorts. It was thoroughly enjoyable prancing about with them, rehearsing my fierce pony-walk for my big fashion moment. 

 I'm a bit nervous. My walk isn't exactly model material. I'm crossing my fingers that my shoes don't slip and I can make it down the catwalk in one piece. Whatever happens, it should be fun. Or funny. And really, all eyes are going to be on the amazing capes.
