Yes, there was a dog dressed as Mary Todd Lincoln at Bumbershoot this year. If you’re wondering why, you clearly missed the Vis-à-Vis Society’s “Why Vampires? Why Abraham Lincoln? Why Now?” panel at the Festival.
The discussion was part of the “Why This? Why That? Why Now?” series, which focused on different pop culture obsessions each day. In addition to bloodsuckers and Abe, they also tackled topics including cupcakes, bacon, cuteness, and failure.
Thanks to The Stranger for the photo.
