Getting dressed up, Desi-style

Thankfully it's not me in the sari. Not 'til Halloween, anyway...

My former roommate Pujya (right) helps fix a sari on her friend Tennille before they head for a wedding reception. Pujya may be teaching me how to wrap a sari since I am going to be dressing like a woman this Halloween (2010 is an even year, no?), and India does conveniently have a traditional sect of cross-dressers, the hijras.

Also, sis, I may need to borrow some gold to pull this one off proper-like.
