The MANnequin X Jipsy “The Fair” Part I

Fairs are the perfect excuse to let your inner fat kid run freakin’ loose. Funnel cakes, burgers, cotton candy, corn dogs, fried Oreos, fried Twinkies, fried cheesecake… well basically anything can be fried so you get the point (just make sure you order a 62 oz. Diet Coke to help you guzzle it all down). I personally dislike the rides since I always fear for my life whenever I’m on one, so what else is there to do besides people watch and eat your feelings? Have a photoshoot, of course!

Miami’s Fair has been around since I can remember – any person that can’t sing the “Be There! The Fair!” jingle is definitely not from South Florida. I hadn’t been in more than a decade, but I remember how much I loved playing the carnie games, and gazing at the bright lights and neons. My memory inspired me and I decided to call my great friend and local photog extraordinaire, Jipsy Nefarious. Make sure you check out her work!

Jipsy and I met through work (well, way before if you count our wild party days circa Pawn Shop) and really connected on an artistic level. She’s shot photos of me in all sorts of attire – from business to full-on Club Kid. She’s a true talent and makes me feel so comfortable that I even forget the camera is there. When we are together, our creative energy is electric!

Cut to our first collab: The MANnequin X Jipsy “The Fair.” This photoshoot is heavily inspired by vibrant prints. I am enjoying the resurgence of the good ol’ paisley print this spring/summer. The truth is the iconic curly teardrop never really disappears from fashion, but now it’s hot, hot, hot. In my first look, I took it up a few notches by wearing a matching top and bottom. It’s a bold outfit, but in fashion one should be fearless.
