Daria, Marina and I went to the Drink and Draw party.
The theme was “Secret Society”, emphasizing “Eyes Wide Shut” and occult iconography.
The 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. Her pretty boy killed the suspenders-no-shirt look, too.
These lovers posing later in the night were especially pretty, even without any effort at costuming.
