Three young femmes in ornate dresses sit on top of a vehicle decorated with plastic leaves. On the rightmost side, a person with full make up, red lips, and big circle ear rings looks at the camera, with their lips open as if speaking. Their costume is inspired by water, with a blue neckpiece with stones in it looking like waves. Their bra also looks like waves and has pearls hanging off it. Behind them is an umbrella with lime green horizontal stripes. The person in the middle wears a traditional looking costume with many brown and orange beads, holding up a fake bow and arrow. They are looking to the side, also seeming to chant. Their headdress consits of a colorful headband over their forehead and brown beads framing their face. Behind them is a rainbow-colored umbrella. The person to the right is wearing a pink dress, largely hidden by their left forearm and the middle person's bow and arms. They are shouting to the crowd, while holding a bright pink decorative ornament with light pink roses around it. Behind them, a rainbow flag waves.
