Fashion at Fur Rondy

One thing I love about Fur Rondy is all the clothing and accessories not seen anywhere else in the world.  Colorful kuspuks and exquisitely designed fur coats are everywhere.  Attire is visually spectacular, yet practical for the climate.  Here are a few highlights from this past Fur Rondy weekend in Anchorage.

 Mother and daughter team, AJ and Angelina, take pause in their fabulous fur coats.

I adore that Angelina is holding the mushers roster.  Devoted fans!

I don't know who these men are, but I know one thing for sure.  They were warm.

I can't quite handle how fabulous these two are.  Thanks for letting me take your picture.  This lady is so foxy, and this dude is so legit.  Sip on that coffee, y'all, because you two are ROCKIN' IT.

I can't even, y'all.  If you saw how pink the inside of that lynx mouth was, you would faint.  Assuredly. 

I felt so little next to this man.  The fact that he was wearing an actual bear is beside the point.

These boots?  I would own them if I didn't live in a rainforest.

What's going on in this picture?  Oh, a bunch o' ivory pearls, lynx claws, a whopper of an agate, and yes - an OOSIK.

This dude was strolling around LIKE A BOSS.  Because with a green eyed cat on your head and black-out sunnies, HE CAN.

The boss of all Alaska fashion bosses, DeeDee Jonrowe.  She rocks this pink fur-lined parka LIKE NO OTHER.

For some reason, this fella is surprised his photo is being taken.  He was a good sport.

 I want this hat so bad.  But I also want to pay off my car.

Delightful polar bear themed rick-rack and trim for a cozy kuspuk.  SWOON.

This guy tho.

Yes, my bid is $2.  I want it all for $2.

Trailer of death or trailer of money?  Your judgment.  Yes, some of those skins are inside out.

Bristol Bay representin'...

This is Grandpa Phil.  His gloves are epic, and no - you can't have them.

Model to Musher, Zoya DeNure, sports a lovely fur-lined kuspuk.
