Attention NROers Going to D.C. for Obama-palooza

That smell you smell is from the Obama supporters at the “green” inauguration ball:

SANTA FE, N.M. — In the world of trashy fashion, designer Nancy Judd has hit the big time.

Ms. Judd spends her days in a studio here crafting clothing from castoff plastic bags, electrical wire and old cassette tapes. Now, her Dumpster couture has caught the eye of environmental activists, who plan to showcase her work in Washington at Saturday’s Green Inaugural Ball honoring President-elect Barack Obama.

The star piece: A man’s coat made from Mr. Obama’s campaign fliers. She says it took her 200 hours to cut and paste and sew it.

Showing her stuff in the nation’s capital is a big step for a woman who used to put on a furry blue costume and sweat her way through parades as Carlos Coyote, Santa Fe’s recycling mascot. Working for the city trash department, Ms. Judd did the coyote gig for years. She also ran workshops and recorded radio ads urging New Mexicans to recycle. But she worried that nobody was paying attention.

Ms. Judd began to wonder whether she could spark new interest in solid waste by making garbage glamorous.
