Russell Birdman Festival  [New Zealand, 2010]
Contestants in the "drag race" - the Friday night warm-up event ahead of the Birdman jump on Saturday - wait on Russell wharf for the start signal. About 20 contestants of dubious gender had to run around a course, put on lipstick and a garter, drink a daiquiri through a straw and climb through a hoop, all while wearing high heels and tight frocks.
