The Best Laid Plans...

I was planning to go to the 4 H Fair tonight to do some more people-watching, but my car is in the shop.

I DID didn't update Saturday because I had  several posts this week. I didn't think you wouldmind.

Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade 7-17-14 (Continued)

Here are some more pictures from my last night at the festival. I am not sure if I will get down to the festival Saturday. I put in an 11-hour day Friday, and I'm pretty tired. I may go down for one last time during the afternoon. We'll see. Anyway, on with the show!

When I saw this, I was immediately reminded of the consistency of my shit after treating myself to Food Alley.

She's probably not drunk, but she does look drunk, doesn't she?

After days of single shoes, here's a pair. Never mind that they look like they've been pooped out of one of the animals at the petting zoo--or pooped out by a ride operator.

Chicago Bucket Boy and AirGuitar Balloon Man should be in a band together.

This would make a fun gif. One shot he's good...

the next shot he's off.

Ankle-length shorts? Come ON! Props to his buddy for having shorter shorts, but geez. Why not just wear pants for God's sake? Like that leg on the right side of the photo?

Ombre hair, then ombre shoes, tonight, ombre pants. Gives kind of a new meaning to the phrase, "dipped in shit."

Another crutch person, but no cast, or high-tech foam boot. What gives? Ifs your foot REALLY broken, or are you faking it to get sympathy?

If you've ever wanted to see a kid wearing sunglasses lying on the sidewalk at Three Rivers Festival, this was your year.

After seeing dozens of porta potties at the festival, and trying to touch as little as possible in them, this fully-functional sink was like a beacon of cleanliness in a shit-filled world.

Steamed buns may not sound appetizing, but relax. That shirt is advertising Coney Island in downtown Fort Wayne. There are few other places in the Fort where you can spend $5 and be full.

I don't think he was officially sanctioned as part of TRF, but that's what makes the festival great. Thousands of people, and you never know who you'll meet or who is going to show up. Maybe next year I'll sit on a corner and complain for tips.

Segways are too hard to keep your balance on, so they added a wheel. In 50 years, most of the population will be morbidly obese, because everyone will be riding their LaziMobiles.

Wacky-waving inflatable arm flailing tube men! Wacky-waving inflatable arm flailing tube men! Wacky-waving inflatable arm flailing tube men! Yeah, I know it's not original, but neither is Family Guy.

Sick of the festival yet? This girl is.

Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade 7-17-14

Tonight was my last night at the festival, because I have to work at one of my four part-time jobs tomorrow night. I regret not asking for the last two nights of TRF off, but I thought that might be pushing it to have two weekends off in a row. I had the opening Friday/Saturday off because of the concerts I wanted to attend.

Anyway, I got several pictures tonight, and will post the rest of them soon, probably late Friday night/Saturday morning, or perhaps late Saturday night. If I spoke to you and told you you'd be appearing on the blog, your picture will be uploaded on the site very soon!

I had a really good time people-watching and getting pictures. I regret that some shots didn't turn out as sharp as I wanted, and I didn't get a chance to get a better picture of "Blow for a Buck" lady again.

Anyway, if you like this feature, let me know. I'm hoping to eventually attend more events, so I can expand Fashion Parade to other festivals/stuff going on.

This woman had the prettiest hair--long, black and silky--but you wouldn't know it from this angle.

The key is to lean back.....

too late.

In real life, you can't grab the bull's ass and expect to hang on.

And it doesn't work on the fake bull, either.

I can't wait until some guy tattoos a nose and lips on the back of his head, then wears his sunglasses like this. Until that happens, I'll have to be satisfied with this.




Is it me, or are hipsters getting younger all the time?

Her shirt said, "Jesus Satisfies" and there's a Biblical reference, but I can't imagine the Bible would actually say, "Jesus Satisfies." It sounds too much like a Snickers ad.

It's odd to see women of this age wearing shirts that say "Legit." Is she truly, "too legit to quit," or is she merely telling the world her parents were married when she was born?

Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade 7-16-14

Wednesday night at Three Rivers Festival! More fashiony goodness! 

This lady's shirt said, "Blow For a Buck." With this economy, EVERYONE'S offering bargains.

Another foot in a boot. Lots of broken feet at TRF this year.

Annnnnnd down he goes!

See guys, fashion isn't hard. All you need are Timberlands, an interesting tank top, shades and an attitude. Easily one of the best guy outfits of the night.

First crutches I've seen, but I'm not sure what his issue was. No casts to be seen whatsoever.

Yeah, if I were naked and spread eagled in public with my Care Bear, I'd have that deer-in-the-headlights look too.

He was selling Snickers and water for a dollar each to pay for college. He'll only need to sell $10,000 worth to go to a public school, $30,000 for a private school. For one year.

Hey, is that a dolphin between your legs or are you glad to see me?

I doubt that tattoo was a good idea.

Why can't all bouncers be this cute and this dignified?

Look! It's a member of the Future Plumbers of America!

Because if they were blue, it would be too obvious of a joke.

There, that's better.

He's working for tips, and tips only. Not even $2.13 an hour plus tips, like your server is. And he has to wear inflated rubber on his head.

Who printed this sign? Engrish.com?

First it was ombre hair, now it's ombre shoes.

Little Orphan Sandal.

I didn't know man bags came in pink, but maybe it was the Susan G. Komen Special Edition Man bag.

His shoes are brighter than his future.

Are these socks or guylons?

'Cause every woman's crazy 'bout a sharp-dressed teenage boy.

And now you know why it's called the "Summit City."

Ladies, if you're looking for tail, this guy's got plenty!

The world ended July 16, 2014. This tasteful bag was made by Vera Bradley.

The ride operator was making remarks about this girl twerking. Oddly, the ride operators were all male, and it seemed the majority of the riders were female.

Yes, certain porta potties at the festival were U.S. made.

Second night in a row I saw an adult in a kid-sized wagon. I don't blame him. There are some days I just want to be hauled around in a Radio Flyer wagon, eating ice cream and having people say how cute I am.

It would be nice if the courts could move as quickly as this bed race team.

I never expected to see a crop circle at TRF. Actually this is where the pony ride was before they slaughtered the ponies to be sold at the Deep Fried Nag stand in Food Alley. I'm JUST KIDDING!
