Daria, Marina and I went to the Drink and Draw party.

The theme was “Secret Society”, emphasizing “Eyes Wide Shut” and occult iconography. At Drink and Draw Berlin by Suzanne Forbes May 20 2017

Kelsey and friend at Drink and Draw Berlin by Suzanne Forbes May 21 2017The organizers had decided not to hire any professional models or performers, so all the models were volunteers.

The only ones I was really intrigued and moved by were those who’d put some work into their costumes. Like illustrator Kelsey Bass, above and in the top image, who made her amazing goat mask completely out of recycled materials (Amazon boxes!).

And corsetiere Emma Caponi, who designed and made her astonishing deco gown out of exquisite eyelash lace she got on a trip to China. Emma at Drink and Draw Berlin by Suzanne Forbes May 20 2017Her pretty boy killed the suspenders-no-shirt look, too.suspenders by Suzanne Forbes May 20 2017

These lovers posing later in the night were especially pretty, even without any effort at costuming.

    Thanks for the love! I was hoping we had some professional models too, because I found that I was losing my focus after so many similar poses. Maybe next time they’ll consider hiring pros. I certainly thought that the atmosphere was leaning more towards party-time as well.

    It looks like you still had successful pieces regardless :D.
