Fremont Solstice Parade


Gabe and I participated in the 24th Annual Solstice Parade in Seattle.  It took place in Fremont, and we got recruited through a girlfriend who dressed up last year.  The Solstice Parade traditionally is known for (or at least what I thought it was) naked locals decked out in body paint riding bicycles all hanging out .... 


There is a first for everything, and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that we put ourselves out there this year to walk in the parade and let our fun side shine.  Now, don't be scared by our frightening looks, it's out there.  That is black paint friends and a whole lot of it as we painted ourselves from head to toe!!


 The theme of our group was Dothraki from Games of Thrones.  I don't watch this show, but Google helped me learn we are like savages :)












It was an absolute blast and I will for sure be ready 
to rock another fun and wayyyy out there costume in 2013!!!

Did any Seattle bloggers attend the parade this year?

I love the Solstice parade! I used to live close by, so it was only a short walk away. I didn't make it this year, but hope to go next year!

This is so awesome! I love your costumes..er..paint.. haha! Fantastic! What a fun event! It's way too out there for conservative Tulsa no doubt.

So, a good friend of mine is traveling to Seattle soon. Any ideas on must-sees for her? No rush! Just thought you'd have some good ideas!! I wish it was ME coming to Seattle to come play!

You look great! I do appreciate you choose to class it up a bit and wear clothing. My brother went to the parade and said he saw a naked man just standing there talking to young children (who were not his own), not okay in my book! Eek!
