Carousing In Body Paint at Fantasy Fest in Key West, Florida
Be careful not to scratch your freshly airbrushed acrylic nails as you claw through your costume box -- where is that dayglo pink feathered headdress? In fact, be careful not to smear your airbrushed body art either, which is all that many of this annual festival's attendees will be wearing in the balmy, October weather of the southernmost city in America, well known for its boho eccentricity. There are balls and many other events throughout the week, but everyone is waiting for the huge and wild parade featuring glittering floats, marching bands and dancing groups. Anything can happen at Fantasy Fest, so leave the kids at home.
