This head-to-toe ensemble at Art Basel. The man with an approximately foot-tall headdress is walking away from me, in case it’s not clear. Believed to be sculptor Chakaia Booker David Owens.

I would also like to take a moment to shoutout to the women in yellow wig and yellow jumpsuit with a fake cat on her shoulder at Art Miami – she looked amazing and I regret not taking her photo!

So, send in your photos, and come back for more during the week!
