Where was/what doing when scouted?

Gearing up for the Farmer's Ball.

Favorite clothing store?

BCBG, cause I'm into dresses, but really here in town I like Wild Man Vintage and the Antique Mall. Because it's kind of fun searching for good deals and there is a weird pride associated with finding something for $2 and being able to brag about it.

Other stores you frequent?

Well, I'm excited for the new downtown grocery store-that is where I want to be shopping. And I go to the Raven bookstore to find local authors.

How would you describe your style?

A tired and groggy six-year-old. I usually find myself throwing stuff together that at least kind of makes sense. And lately I have been getting made fun of for wearing skirts as dresses.

Favorite trend for this season?

I am starting to dig that guys in this town have learned how to dress lately. I actually saw multiple guys wearing awesome outfits last night.

Least favorite trend right now?

People who know you, but don't say 'hi' to you unless they are drunk. I call it "selective drunk memory".

Where do you get your haircut?

Teri at the Green Room cuts my hair and she cuts everyone's hair at UO too - 'cause she's kick ass.

Favorite coffee shop in Lawrence?

The Pig has a new coffee called Sulawesi that is delicious. And Milton's because I've just been going there for so long and it has a special place in my heart because I used to work there.

Favorite bar in Lawrence?

The Jackpot because-well, I guess this sort of makes me a drunk, but I know all the bartenders and they are all so really nice. And I guess I've been going to Cielito Lindo so much lately that they know me by name.

Is there anything you'd like to see more of in Lawrence?

Art Galleries? Actually, I really like the underground art shows that have been springing up lately-at places like Love Garden and Milton's.

Less of in Lawrence?

Aww, I wouldn't want to take anything away from Lawrence, it's cool as it is.

Style = ?

Confidence. Seriously. Girls come into UO all the time and say, "Oh, that's soo cute, but I could never wear it." Come on... anybody can wear anything as long as they think they look hot in it.

Who's got style?

Dudes with style... and Jonny Depp. I think I would lick him if I saw him in person. In Lawrence, I really think it is hard to be a guy with style because there are so few guy's clothing options, but those that have style know it and the numbers are growing.

Are you a happy American?

I am a hopeful American. There will be a change soon and I am hopeful it will be positive.

Tell us a secret...

I was the 2nd best costume performer of 2002 (I lost only to Japan). And there is more to costume performances than waving...
