WHO: Rayne Baron, owner of La Reyna Guadalupe in Kensington, dancer, performer, donut ho and female-to-female impersonator WHERE: Kensington Market, of course! WHEN: Thursday afternoon
CLOTHING: "Because of my business I'm always buying and selling vintage, so I'm always stealing things off the rack - like this polka dot top that used to be $10 till it made its way into my closet along with the sparkle tube top and hot pants. The belt was $18 from Iky (19 Kensington, 416-731-7827). The shoes cost about $350 at the Bcbg (25 the West Mall, 416-695-0606), and I added the silver heart, which was a gift from my hero - my daddy. I've been collecting these antique bracelet bangles forever. I always wear these silver hoops, which I import from Mexico and resell for $15. My double knuckle ring cost around $250 in New York - it says my name on it. I get my nails done at Cali (162 Spadina, 416-867-8866). The only thing I don't have with me right now is my favourite accessory, an entourage of cute fags." MY STYLE: "From old-fashioned fancy lady to chicana drag queen and everything that's in-between" HAIR: "My twist-on and style are also worn by ladies in Mexico. Paul at Shampoo (32 St. Andrew, 416-542-1576) cuts my hair."
INTO: "Pretending I'm a chicana. Dancing and selling pretty things at La Reyna Guadalupe, my booth in Kensington Market right outside Ego (9 Kensington 416-596-8282), and making plush felt doughnuts with collaborator Paige Gratland, available at Propaganda (686 Yonge, 416-961-0555) and Art Metropole (788 King West, 416-703-4400). I'll also be at the Outdoor Art Exhibition (www.torontooutdoorart.org) July 8 to 10 at booth #oo6."
