March’s Making Out with Wes Perry and Friends — a low-key evening of comedy, music and variety acts — was quite possibly the best Making Out I’ve ever been to. Wes told true stories and singing songs inspired by the “Dirty Girls,” a Youtube documentary following young riot grrls in California in the ’90s. But it was the ’90s — who wasn’t dirty?

I’m one of those people that hates everything, but there wasn’t one ho-hum act in the bunch. Everyone told compelling hilarious stories or sang an amazing song or breathed new life into performance art or did something that entertained me. I was sad it had to end.

Making Out march featured performances and beats by:

Of course, I wore a vibrant outfit to match these vibrant performers. (Click on the photos to enlarge them.)

Outfit details

As usual, the most expensive item in my outfit is the glasses. ZenniOptical.com has scores of cheap glasses — my frames are only $12.95, but I have to pay an extra $21.90 for progressive lenses. Still a deal, but still considerably more expensive than the single vision lenses included in the original price. To spice up my specs, I added rhinestones to the top of the frame with some Amazing Goop epoxy. And to protect the lenses, I covered them with painter’s tape before beginning gluing. I also did the same thing to my prescription sunglasses:
