I had sewn my outfit myself. For the skirt I used a simple pattern from the 50s. The top I made like a long shawl I just put around my neck, over my boobs, and tied in the back, leaving my belly naked. The flamingo wanted to be my date for the evening, but he got so drunk during the pre-party he had to stay at home...More pictures from this sangria feast can be seen on Tifa's blog!
Madame Magduschka - or for the night Madame Magda Castro - was the evening's conferenciere.
The burlesque artists performing were all amazing!
Ivoncita and the Matadores de Amor!
There were other performers too, and some performed twice. Here is Fräulein Frauke and Ivoncita again!
The evenings stage kitten - Gabriella - selling chocolate cigarettes and Cuban cigars!
As usual the guests looked smashing!
Me and Fanny! That's true love there...
Karin, who were one of the two winners for best outfit with her self made voodoo hat!
Tifa and Lola van Dyke!
Me and a broken cigar!
Fräulein Frauke and her husband John Paul Bichard! The two people we can thank for creating these lovely events!
Elegy Ellem, Albin and Fräulein Frauke!
I had more fun at the party than I have had in along time! After watching the amazing show the dancing began! Me and Ellem probably performed one of the most pornographic dances on the dance floor, Fanny managed to shower me in a whole glass of white wine (it's at times like that I'm glad she only drinks white wine...), I made burlesque plans with an Italian, realized the ceiling at Nalen is really pretty by lying down on the floor with Michael, and finally made smoke puffs with Ellem on the way home. Not that I really smoke. But sometimes it happens. Fell into bed, tired and happy, around 4 am, just to get up the next day to witness a fencing competition!
