Queer Quoir debuted a new mashup for Making Out with Wes Perry and Friends, a low-key evening of comedy, music and variety acts. Usually the show is every third Wednesday of the month at Upstairs Gallery in Andersonville, but The Hideout hosted a very special bonus installment of Making Out over the weekend.
In the promos for the show, each act got a GIF, and ours is awesome. I’m the redhead hovering above the group:
The show also featured performances and beats by:
Queer Choir kicked off the night by accompanying Wes Perry for the show tune “Another Hundred People” from the musical “Company.” We also sang two 90s classics for the show: “No Diggity” by Blackstreet and “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette. My voice got quite the work out that night, jumping from a full-bodied chest voice soprano solo to tenor/bass harmonies and back again.
I love unexpected pairings, be it Blackstreet with Alanis or edgy with high femme, and my outfit for Making Out was no exception:
- Old Navy black blazer jacket, size 4x, $5 via the Gap Clearance Store in Hebron, Ky.
- ASOS Curve skater dress in oxblood sequins and lace, size US 20, $56.80 USD
- Hips and Curves black lace garter belt, size 3x, $14.99
- Torrid black lace stockings, size 4x, $4.98
- EyeBuyDirect.com Rock! Peggy cat eye glasses in black, $55
- Sears gold lame pointy toe flats, size 11, $5
The studded epaulets and black boyfriend blazer deliver a 1-2 punch to my lacey sequin dress and thigh-his, spiking my gutter glamour with some serious attitude. And the hem of my dress only brushes the top of my stockings, daring to bare my thighs while staying covered up (even if it is sheerly) nearly everywhere else.
Some of my favorite shots from the night are below, and the full set is on the Plump Pinup Life & Style Facebook page.
