Mystery stylist strikes again to put cow sculptures in costume.
The leaves are just starting to turn colors and fall from the trees along Harry S. Truman Parkway. Yet, there's another sign along the road to indicate that autumn is in full swing. The cows at the Maryland Department of Agriculture are wearing masquerade costumes.
Sometime over the weekend, the mystery stylist decided that it was time for the cow sculptures to ditch their back-to-school gear for something more appropriate for October.
The cows appear very regal in their costumes with staffs, crowns and face masks. The "male" wears a red and white cape. The "female" is decked out in a pink sparkly fabric and a crown accented with fuchsia, which is the same color as the satiny gloves placed at the base of the sculpture.
Perhaps most noteworthy (and most disturbing, depending on how you look at it) is that the "female" cow has blonde hair flowing from the crown.
