Veronika MeowMeowz was officially crowned the 2015 Doo Dah Queen by 2014 Queen Narayana Sunday night after the legendary tryouts at the American Legion Hall in Pasadena.
The annual right-of-passage for many young (and old) Doo Dah hopefuls is, without doubt, one of the craziest parties of the year where just about anything goes … and did so on Sunday.
This year’s winner of the coveted title is “ a cross between Lady Gaga, Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks,” as one astute Doo Dah watcher noted. But Veronika insisted and proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she was the obvious choice.
Accompanied by a talented guitarist, Veronika MeowMeowz belted out something or other and was obviously very much in the moment.
Other contenders, such as the Russian Beauty, were deemed too classy for Doo Dah judge Tom Coston and despite the obvious male appreciation, she lost out to Veronika. Perestroika!
The perennial candidate, Count Smokula, made a valiant attempt to be the “Kink” of Doo Dah but was clearly outwitted by the considerable charms of the German Beer Keller girl.
However, in the final analysis the overwhelming votes went to Veronika for her pizazz, creativity, and all around liveliness.
The Doo Dah Parade will be held Nov. 22, 2015 at 11 a.m. in East Pasadena.
