A Little Glamour

Gentle Friends, one of the fun things that go on in our lives here by the Bay are the events for Rico's Softball team.  Each team in the SF Gay Softball League is sponsored by a Bar which in turn becomes the team's "Home Bar.'  The "F" Liners (named for the trolly cars that turn around on upper Market in the Castro) home bar is The Edge... at many of the fundraisers Rico and the other Cheerleaders dress up in Drag and do an over the top show which packs the Bar to overflowing and they raise quite a bit of money that go to support the "F" Liners....  so.... what today's post is all about is Rico getting made up for the first event a week ago...

... we headed over to Patrick's house, he is the Teams Coach and in real life, he's a professional makeup artist - and done lots of famous folks when they perform here in the City, the last famous person he worked on that I can think of was Cindy Wilson of the B52's....  

...the above snap is Rico getting ready for his transformation.

... Patrick applying the undercoat....

... working on the eyes...

... more application...

... with the upper lashes on...

... the lower lashes make a difference...keeping the white highlights that will pop in the spotlight...

.. with the wig, jewels, dress, and tulle the look comes together!!  As you can see he's wearing his Summer diamonds.......some are diamonds and some are not!! (stolen from Mae West)    
Mama Rico was a huge hit and made a ton a money, in fact making the most of all the "gals" performing!!

Summer diamonds - I need to remember that. Amazing transformation and such a great cause. I'd be afraid of a breeze with the hair though - living in the south "big hair" is still a thing, but Rico's is BIG hair!
