wind-tousled by the lamp post

It's probably quite obvious that Burlesque is something D and myself enjoy quite a bit. This time we got tickets to La Bordello Boheme at the Proud Brighton Ballroom. Of all the different Burlesque-ish events we've been to over in Brighton, this one ranks as the best. Nevertheless, dressing up for it forms part of the pleasure itself, calling once again for feather eyelashes. A loose red pleated dress reminiscent of my mother's but worn with its straps down, a long silver necklace to mimic a toga look, hair pinned up loosely (only to be destroyed by the wind, as in the photographs above), and my dragon tights complete the look. Eyebrows that have been further darkened (extra-black waterproof eyeliner helps!) further channel the energy. . .
