The Infamous Coney Island Mermaid Parade!

posted on: Friday, June 28, 2013



At long last, I've finally finished sorting through the bazillion photos I took on Saturday at Coney Island. And of course, once I sorted through them I had to sort through a couple of times to narrow down my favorites, and THEN I had to actually edit them. So, at long last, here are my photos from the Mermaid Parade.





Full disclosure, we actually missed the Mermaid Parade itself. Next year, I have every intention of dressing up and being in it but at least this year I actually made it down to Coneyto see the aftermath. First time ever! The parade almost didn't happen this year (thanks, Sandy...) but luckily the organizers managed to pull it off (thanks, Kickstarter...). And the freaks came out! And the boobs! And the glitter! Oh man, the glitter... I really loved all of the costumes and crazy people. So much fun!




Beware! Beyond this point is all the boardwalk fun (and all the NSFW pasties action...)
















This guy was such a good sport and kept finding me when I got distracted and lost our crew. 




This is the moment he spotted my friend, picked her up and swung her around and THEN tried to make out with her while her man was watching. It was very amusing.

Someone forgot his sunglasses. I tried to loan him mine but he wasn't into it.

    1. Thanks!! It was really fun, I actually took almost 400 photos! That pregnant girl was so adorable. I literally stopped in my tracks and was like "OMG you are so super cute!" She's the only person I actually asked to pose for me the entire day.
