35th Occasional Doo Dah Parade
Perhaps you've looked down at the pictures before you've read this
part. Maybe you're thinking "What the...????"
OR, you're reading this first, and then will look at the pictures.
I lead a batch of STAR TREK fans in the Los Angeles area, and we
dress up as Klingons, THE bad guys of the show. (The show when it
was good...and had bad Klingons. Which was good.) We
recently dressed up and marched in the Doo Dah Parade in East
Pasadena on April 28th, with my pal Marty's scooter decked
out as a Klingon scoutship.
Check out KAJ, XO of the IKV KARNAGE based in Phoenix (Zebariah
Young, of Arizona City, AZ). A most excellent Klingon -- good
sense of humor, pleasant with damned reporters, and as he's from
Arizona, can handle the 90 degree heat.
Another plus factor for Original Series garb.
So we're thinking of doing the parade again next year, and want to
make a second miniaturized scooter/float thing, looking like a
Klingon BattleCruiser. See picture below

And, there's this picture, with K'BOB behind KEG on the
Budgie-of-Prey. I need to ask KODAK if he lucked out
with this photo, or if he waited and composed it.
