Dressing Right for the Red Light District

During a bike tour yesterday, we spotted this fellow dressed peculiarly on a street behind the Central Cemetery, around the corner from the Zona de Tolerancia, Bogotá's red light district.

Don't have much of a backstory to recount, except that the smartly-dressed fellow had come by pushing his cart piled high with scavenged materials. A man in one of the shops, dressed in the white shirt, called out to the scavenger, who stopped and produced the costume. Perhaps a theatre costume, or from a safe sex skit.

The jaguar on the wall doesn't appear too pleased to see him.
