Have I had any goons made?!!?? Bitch I've got 6 in the works! Have you ever seen that queeny series of paper doll books, like "fashions of the 1930's" etc. Well, I brought the "Carmen Miranda Paper Dolls" book to use as reference and I'm having this gorgeous red gown copied. It'll have a train so I won't be able to use it too often.
Getting clothes made is really cheap but it's a bit of a job on my part. I have to go back and forth a lot to the place and I have to do fittings in the middle of this unairconditioned flea market type place. They have a small booth full of showgirl clothes. They make them in a different location. They tie up a piece of fabric for me to change behind. I've got to get into the Danskins, the corset, yada yada, then I have to come out in the aisles looking like some nutty crossdresser (no offense intended Hattie) and get measured while people walk by. They are used to "Katoey" but I don't think that they can see me and understand that I'd look different in makeup. It's very funny!
I'm leaving for the beach soon. Bangkok is very polluted and the heat mixed with the exhaust can really get to you. In stark contrast, the beaches down south are pristine. When I come back Benjalady and his boyfriend Thang (yes that's her name) are going to go with me to Pattaya, the town with the huge drag shows. We're going to try to see both in one day.
