Goldie Lishiss

Baton Rouge, 1998-2003

These pictures represent the glamorous, peroxided roots of my costuming career. During college at LSU in Baton Rouge I became friends with two guys who were members of the Krewe of Apollo in Baton Rouge, one of the local Mardi Gras Krewes that hosts an annual ball and special events throughout the year. When they found out I could both sew and move in time to music it began a brief performance career both as Miss Goldie Lishiss. I spent my spare time in my early twenties during and immediately after college designing drag costumes for my alter ego Miss Goldie Lishiss and her fabulous partners-in-crime, Miss Sopheelya Groin and Miss Selma Pussy, who together comprised the performance trio "30% Mo Hoochie."
