Men In Tights?

What do Bloggers do when one of their own cries out for help invites them to attend a Womanless Beauty Pageant? They laugh their heads off rally, of course! Such was the scene in beautiful Mathews County last Saturday night. Chesapeake Bay Woman, Soupy Meg, Noe Noe Girl and Re were among the attendees.


The pageant was organized to raise money for the local Relay for Life team. It was a wonderful way to involve the community, and to raise awareness of the ongoing need to fund cancer research. The cancer survivors in the audience were recognized, which really personalized the event........there were people in the same room with us who had fought, or were currently battling this horrible disease. I was thrilled to be a very small part of it!



Due to a previous commitment, I was the last to arrive at CBW's house. As soon as I stepped in the back door I KNEW that these ladies had already gotten down to business. They were drinking wine hovered over Bayman, and once in a while someone would shout out words like "DARK LIPLINER", or "GLUE WON'T STICK"! Bayman looked puzzled. I don't believe he understood "Woman Talk." Although, after Saturday night, it's possible that he is now fluent.







Re made these pretty wine glasses to commemorate the event. Aren't they adorable??!! Do you recognize the view out of CBW's back/front door?




We made posters to show our support for our favorite beauty. I'd like to personally apologize to the nice folks who were sitting behind us in the auditorium. I really am sorry that you had to move because we were so loud and obnoxious our signs were in your way. Please forgive us. We don't get out much.



The people behind us weren't the only ones who ran away. So did the children. True story.





We were all happy to see The Waterman, who made a surprise appearance while the transformation was underway. After looking back at this picture, I believe I have figured out why he was in a hurry to get the heck out of Dodge leave. He was afraid that he might be next!!!!




Bayman might have been fixed up all purty, but he still couldn't hold a candle to that Chesapeake Bay Woman!! She always sparkles;)



One final pose for the ever demure Mademoiselle Boudoir.



The men who participated in this event are to be commended. They sacrificed their time, as well as their dignity, to entertain an auditorium full of people. I never heard the final total, but, thanks to their efforts, a tremendous amount of money was raised to combat killer cancer. Let's keep up the fight!

You need to send that shot of Bayman to Oprah, she thinks blue eye shadow should be outlawed ... it looks perfect on him and who knew he was a redhead at heart?

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

THANK YOU!! for saving the day with the makeup, signs, moral support and laughter. To answer Mental Mama's questions, YES - I believe Bayman should do a repeat performance, preferably the night we have the margarita machine and karaoke contest.

Love those photos of Bayman just hangin' out, bein' a normal guy, wearing blue eyeshadow and lipstick. Some day someone will come upon these and go, WHAT? Why is he wearing . . . and no one will remember quite why. ; )
