I've been planning to write for some time now, but my life has recently gotten away from me... and I don't mean that as a bad thing. I don't know what I did, but the stars must have aligned some who and whichever one is representing me began shining magnificently bright. 

On Saturday, I got dressed... well kinda, and made my way down to the 30th annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. I also decided to bring homer because I happened to have a sailor costume that I purchased for him last Halloween. To say we made a splash is quite the understatement.  

Homer and I wound up in the New York Daily News, They new York Post, Humans of New York's Facebook page, as well as many other blogs and publications all over New York. It was truly an honor for so many people to want to feature an image of us and I could not be more tickled pink. 

This entry in going to be on the shorter side, but I wanted to end this with the article about us in the New York Post:

Just ‘maid’ for a Coney parade

A Brooklyn beauty struts in Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade yesterday — covered by little more than pasties, panties and a pooch.
Andrea “Poison” Ivy (Ivory... oops :) and her tiny sailor, Homer, were among 4,000 colorful marchers at the 30th annual procession on Surf Avenue. Clear skies and warm temps drew tens of thousands of spectators.
Reigning over the wild festivities were the parade’s honorary Queen Mermaid and King Neptune — Brooklyn-born actress Annabella Sciorra, 52, and comedian Jackie Martling, 64.

Pretty freaking amazing. <3

BTW... as most of you know, I have been working hard on building my burlesque career. And I just so happen to be having a show this Tuesday night. If you are in the New York area and want to attend, Take a look at the flyer and also feel free to add me on Facebook. Love you all and thanks so much for reading. :)
