Every summer, Girl Camping Girl and The Little Little Trailer throw a weekend party for about a dozen girlfriends (give or take a few) who love to camp together. This year's theme was Queens of the Trailer Park--and The Little Little Trailer volunteered to haul in some crowns for the event.
The girlfriends hauled in their trailers plus all the accoutrements that go with them. Some came hundreds of miles.
In her gift bag, each guest found a blank satin queen's sash to letter and decorate.
The sash was accompanied by a tiny bejeweled crown--just in case anyone forgot to pack her tiara.
Everyone wore it well!
The outfits that emerged from each trailer were creative and fun. Check out Miss Sylvia as the Idaho Tater Queen!
Miss Bonnie rocks her cigarette holder as the Queen of Trailer Trash.
Here's Miss Marie, Girl Camping Girl's mom, as (what else?) the Queen Mother.
Miss Karen, far right, was the Queen of South of the Border. She furnished a surprise with that, but...what happens at Girl Camp, stays at Girl Camp!
The Queens of the Trailer Park posed for pictures. Then they paraded themselves to downtown Elk River, Idaho, where they reigned at the local taverns, crashed a wedding party, danced with startled strangers, and left behind, shall we say, an indelible impression.
Miss Carolyn, the Queen Egg Lady, also left hard-boiled eggs with some of her new subjects!
The next day, all 15 queens turned back into their regular selves, and also reviewed their crazy-fun night on video.
All that frivolity may have worn them out. But as we all know, a queen never loses her composure. So the only obvious casualty of the evening was the dead rubber chicken!
