“I have been getting the back of my head shaved and colored for the last year. This is the first time I’ve ever done more than two colors. I have a lot of fun with it because you can hide it, show it or do whatever with it depending on the mood you’re in. It’s an easy way to be fun and funky. Fashion at True/False showcases different people from across the world, and for people here in Missouri it's an opportunity for them to express themselves. That’s the fun thing about the weekend; getting to showcase yourself and your style.” -- Pass Holder outside Missouri United Methodist Church

Fashion of True/False

True/False, a celebration filled with colorful, eclectic people to say the least. It’s a showcase of Columbia’s self-expression. Part film festival, part concert, part public art exhibition and, of course, part fashion show.

This year ‘Queue Queens of True/False,’ were out in full force making their mark on the event with their colorful outfits, which equally matched their colorful and creative personalities.

Along each block there was some kind of funky, person dancing, making art or just helping people out around the festival. Even patrons themselves were brought out of their shells and dressed not only for comfort, but to showcase their effortless style and creative outlook on the streets of downtown Columbia this past weekend.  

“I’m feeling my inner Phyllis Diller/Golden Girl this weekend. I’ve been in theater my entire life, and so I have a room filled with costumes where I get in and start grabbing things that go together that are tacky, fun,and ridiculous. For me, it’s all about the texture and flavor of a look.”             

--Queen seen outside of The Missouri Theater“I’m going for a nature spirit-type look, so I went more tribal with the makeup and more Nordic with the hair. I want to look like I’m going back to nature. It’s not really a solid concept, but the theme was green, and so I went with the spirit look.”
--Queen seen outside of Missouri United Methodist Church“I wanted to be festive. True/False is just so fun, my scarf is a gift, so I don’t know where it’s from, but I love it.” --Patron seen outside of Jesse Hall“I am an outer space mermaid. Because of the weather, I was honestly up in the air about my costume, but I just went with it. I’ve got fish tanks, Flash Jordans, a tutu and, of course, the wig.” --Queen seen outside The Missouri Theater
“What inspired your look?”
