|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.
