So for New Year's Eve this year, for the first time in many years, I didn't have a DJ gig, I wasn't helping to organise an event.. I could just go along to something as a punter!
I went to Amanda Palmer & Neil Gaiman's Trash Masquerade at Revolt Theatre.
It was a quiet, sedate, serene, austere gathering:
Not wild at all! Ahem.
It was a magnificent evening!
So, what did I wear?
I managed not to take a photo of the bottom half of my outfit somehow (bad blogger, no cookie!) but I wore my black/red bustle skirt from fanplusfriend, an old favorite!
For my makeup, I knew I'd be sweaty and uncomfortable in a mask so I decided to paint one on. In the spirit of the "Trash" theme I tried to make it look a bit grungy and apocalyptic, so built up textural layers with different shades of red, and blacked my eyes out with sooty looking eyeshadow.. I added bronze glitter as well.
It was a marvellous night!
How did you spend your NYE?
