This is what democracy looks like.

Of Another Fashion is a fashion blog that describes itself thusly: "An alternative archive of the not-quite-hidden but too often ignored fashion histories of U.S. women of color."
Using wonderful historical photos, often out of personal photo albums, along with any relevant information or stories, the site is building a record of fashion and style that has been neglected by the mainstream and made invisible: minority women in the United States.
It's a great read and could be a great resource for costumers, as well.
So, I need to talk about Dane 101's FireBall, especially since it happened at the end of January. It took a while to get all the photos together, and frankly, I'm still sifting. But I do have enough to share.
It was an amazing spectacle. So many beautiful costumes. So many dark and wonderful costumes. The performances on the stage were entrancing.
Since I am much better with images than with words, I will follow with three slideshows of my photos from that night. Enjoy!
