The whimsical Barnaby’s World of Wonderment turned up the color with
handmade props and costumes at San Francisco’s annual Castro Street
Fair in October. A trip through Wonderland with these playful circus and street
performers left us as giddy as the Mad Hatter.
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! (Clockwise from top left)
The Queen of Hearts (Lucy Borden) plays croquet
with the help of her soldier Cards. The Caterpillar
(Frieda Laye) relaxes with the March Hare (Juanita
Fajita) and the diminutive King of Hearts (Dam Dyke)
in the mushroom garden. Tent host Max Barnaby
entices fair-goers to peek inside the tent. The Queen
of Hearts menaces blossoms Dizzy Blank and Emily
Ulrich in the Garden of Talking Flowers. Fabric
flowers, handmade by Anna Conda and the World of
Wonderment crew for the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
