JVS Hearts Seattle

I may not have been born here, but even since my family moved here when I was 8, I've called myself a Seattle Native.
In the last month, I've been asked to participate in so many Seattle events, circulating around the 50th anniversary of the Worlds Fair.  I am honored to oblige.

First off, to promote the KCTS documentary "When Seattle Invented the Future"  (http://kcts9.org/when-seattle-invented-future-1962-worlds-fair), The Atomic Bombshells were asked to attend it's opening, in our costumes from our show Lost In Space.:

Then later that week, Ruby Mimosa and I, as well as a charming young Elvis, popped around downtown Seattle, enjoying the first summer sun with our Pedi-Cab drivers (http://seattlepedicab.com/)

(Here we are at Dahlia Lounge about to enjoy a fried PB, bacon, banana sandwich.  Trust me, it was AMAZING!)

A few weeks later, I could not believe my luck, when randomly stopping in to The Pretty Parlor (www.prettyparlor.com) I met a gal named Erin, who was in need of a fancy dress for an upcoming party.  After meeting with her and her husband, I find out they are attending the Space Needle's 50th Anniversary Party.  I made her a wonderful navy chiffon dress inspired by the 60's style, and her husband a killer Space Needle Orange 60's style coat.  Check it out!

For those of you who don't know, the Space Needle was originally painted Orange during it's premiere in 1962.

But this does not conclude the end of all things Seattle related...no, no.

One of Seattle's notable Drag Queens Mama Tits (https://www.facebook.com/TheMamaTits?ref=ts)
Asked me to design her a Space Needle Dress.  She will be premiering the garment at this summer's Pride Parade (http://www.seattlepridefest.org/schedule/).
Although I can not show you the completed garment, until it has it's debut, I CAN show you this amazing picture of Mama...just for fun:

Yes, that's right.  Come on by Broadway Grill every Sunday for booze, and brunch, and Mama.

Seattle, I heart you, especially when you're having a Sunny day.
