  • Queen Tina - New Jersey Says:

    I’m so excited for this (it’s my debut) I could just pop. I’ve got feather boas in pink AND black, and planning a wardrobe around those two items. Oh wait, I’ve got the pink hi-top converse sneakers too, so three items. I have a fabulous dress for the Ball, but very afraid I won’t be able to squeeeeeze myself into it in time! It would go great with those sneakers too!! I don’t mean to sound like an ignorant yankee, but what is the weather like in Mississippi in late March? Can I get some queenly help with that question?


    Hunny, the WEATHER in MS is a crapshoot, any time of the year, any day of the year–and any time of that day! It could be 30 in the morning and 80 by the afternoon–literally. It might be cold and rainy–it might be 85 and sunny–there is just NO TELLING. If it’s misting rain, we’ll parade anyway, just bring a throwaway poncho for that. If it’s pouring, we will just stay at the Hilton and laugh at the weather. If it’s cold, it’s not too much of a problem–you can kinda layer with your outfit and you’re marching so you’re warm. If it’s hot–YOU’LL SWEAT A LOT–like the rest of us!
