Had a blast at Pocatello Pride 2014! My friend Scotty came and helped me out, as you can see we are both kinda hams. :D I had the most fun setting up I think I have ever had at an event - everybody was in a great mood, friendly, helpful, and with a great sense of humor.There were regular dance parties occurring in and around my booth. (I always approve of spontaneous dance parties.)
WE got to enjoy fabulous drag performances, hear eloquent and impassioned speakers, and most of all, enjoy an event where love was in the air. <3 I was thrilled to get to hear Nicole LeFavour speak about the "Add THe Words" campaign in Idaho.
I want to give a shout out to All Under One Roof, who helped make sure this event happened. They are a LGBT advocate group, dedicated to helping and supporting LGBT youth. Their website is here:

Our eldest child is in their fourth year as a zoo volunteer. Every year they have a birthday celebration for the bears. Last year we volunteered our time to go and face paint, and had such a fun time we returned this year!
I continued to do our traditional set up, but we also got an airbrush set up, and Glenn made a whole lotta stencils. (We used Ben Nye liquid makeup in the airbrush) It was fun, quick, and easy - we will definitely be utilizing this in the future.
Animal tracks, and animals, and "scratches," oh my!
Ridiculous Earrings! I always like to wear ridiculous earrings when I'm facepainting. :) These are made out of fun foam, so they are nice and light!
