Project Runway 

Wednesday, Oct 9 2013

It's a surrealist art statement, a runway fashion show, a damn good cause, and a bucket of laughs all rolled into one at the Behind Closed Doors Fashionably Corpse Runway Show. The show is produced as a benefit for the YES Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates for education and services for homeless at-risk teenage girls. It's hosted by stand-up comic and San Francisco native Justin Lucas, who has performed at the Punchline and Cobbs Comedy Club, and was a finalist in the Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition. As for the surrealist art, that comes during the runway show. The models adopt an alter ego that represents the hurt and pain of life – and the struggle for happiness – then flaunt the show's alternative fashion designs in character. Participating designers include Elle Hair Studio, Layla Crain, and Denita Foster, with additional production help from Christal Saul of Reflections Fashion magazine and photographer Waitman Gobble.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
