vintage

The Edwardian Ball was held in a old LA theater that's mostly closed-down these days, but is used sometimes for movie filming (Mulholland Drive was filmed there). All was in a state of decrepitude and disrepair--loose railings, peeling paint, soiled carpeting (where the carpet was extant), bathroom doors askew, etc. A perfect venue for a cabaret-punk style event.

I enjoyed watching the parade of costumes, marveling at the creativity and ingenuity of each attendee. Of course the music and the goth/vaudeville-style show were great, too.

Most of all, it was fun to share it with John & friends.

I think I only look different because of the odd camera angle and it's a flash photo (the lobby was totally dark) and it completely erased my chin. Perhaps one that's more like me is here:
