Professional spectacles. Epicenters of whirlpools in the flow of traffic. Drama kings and queens that have found their niche in public displays of connection. Societal rogues living life outside the box by making their living out of their hats. They go where they want, when they want, perform for who they want, how they want. It’s an unconventional path lit by the light in the eyes, living on art by keeping wits sharp. Sometimes it takes a big head to carry a hat that heavy. After a lifetime of making a living in a novel way, the stories that street performers can tell are amazing. Some say they’re a rotten bunch, but I can tell you now, you’ll never find better company. They raise the roof and then their glasses, the next round of applause is on them. . . . 1. Sword swallower / sideshow freak @samorasquid 2. Badass funk bassist @maximonmusic of @Stranger2Faces 3.

Grace McDaniels was a sideshow star known as the “Mule-Faced Woman.” She was famous for having Elephantiasis of the lip. • Honestly the way they set up this wax figure is insensitive, with the funny music (Dontcha Wish by the Pussycat Dolls) and record scratch when she’s revealed (or is it a disappointed trumpet sound effect? 🤷🏻‍♀️) but, hmph 👀 • • CHECK OUT MY REDBUBBLE! ✨ It’s full of Disney, Universal, and other Orlando/Florida photography that can made into 30+ awesome items!

Chamouni, a circus sideshow exhibitionist of the 19th century, as part of his act would enter an oven with a raw leg of mutton and not come out until the meat was well cooked! Billed as "The Incombustible Man," Chamouni frequently withstood temperatures between 250 F (121 C) degrees and 350 F (177 C) degrees Fahrenheit during his human roast act🔥 • • CHECK OUT MY REDBUBBLE! ✨ It’s full of Disney, Universal, and other Orlando/Florida photography that can made into 30+ awesome items!

This young woman of 18 was dubbed "Princess Tiny." She stood at 21 Inches tall and weighed a paltry 15lbs. Princess Tiny's birth name was May Trudgen. She performed with the PT Barnum Circus. The photographer, Frank Wendt, was well known for chronicling the lives of circus performers including those at the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and the PT Barnum Circus. #sideshow #sideshowfreak #princesstiny #princess #ptbarnum #circus #cirque #gothic #art #cabinetofcuriosities #sirreggienold #morbidcuriosities #morbid

The world is full of color and so are each of us. Seems like most folks have a favorite color, so I guess I can understand if it's the one you grew up with, but what happens when you grow up a weirdo, friends with all the colors at one time or another? ...one thing is for sure: the last thing that I feel here is welcome. I'm sure it's my own damn fault. #sideshowfreak #opinionatedprick #nonperuvian #extranjeromeansweirdo #byefelicia #homeless #monochromedaydream
