Dear Secret Agents,
The Mermaid Parade in Coney Island is not really a battle Secret Agents of the Tru’ Revolution try to win. It’s ours to start with. We attend just for kicks! Agents from everywhere show up camouflaged in colourful mermaids, beautifully blinding colours everywhere! It is a delightful reunion. Tru’ Lavina, of course, opened the parade with a ‘We’re on the Roll’ salute!
Secret Agents in Colourful Hairstyles strolled the Parade full of pride! First to come through was the Femme Fatale Redhead. She was loud and proud!
Other secret agents in colourful wigs followed. Having a wig is more important than having pants on. Blue, pink, purple, yellow, and a young mesmerising Brigitte Bardot in neon green.
While wigs were mandatory, pants were not. Some wore only underwear, some had none. Little it mattered, as long as there were sparkles!
After the wigs came the artists in elaborate mermaid camouflages.
As for food, there was plenty. But who wants to eat when the hot Sailors in Stripes are passing you by?
Fashion Police showed up wearing their usual black. You could see them fiddling with frequency radios trying to intercept Secret Agent conversations. The Fashion Police Anna Wintour was there, walking around straight-faced.
I was surprised to see two leaders of the Fashion Police at the Parade. Check out their glamour! They usually operate from their base, but I guess they could not help to come spy on our Tru’ Revolution!
Some members of the Fashion Police try to camouflage in colours. If they are wearing colourful masks, they are not Secret Agents. It’s a Fashion Police infiltrating tactic. But it never gets them very far!
The happiest Secret Agents are the Pinup ones, with parrots and parasols. I must admit there was a delightful Pinup Fashion Police member. She looked so cute in those heart glasses. Almost a Secret Agent?
Last but not least, we saw the future generations of Secret Agents. Young, but determined. Viva La Colour Revolution! Mermaids to the People!
