Some people have a local pub they like to frequent. Clearly I like to frequent transformed ballrooms surrounded by circus freaks, half naked performers and potent cocktails as this would be the third entry I have written on this blog about The Dark Circus Party.
On a serious point, I am a hula hoop extraordinaire. I even have my own hula hoop...and it's pink and sparkly purple!
Because this was a last minute thing - I genuinely struggled to find friends to go with, for some reason going to a party and dressing like a weirdo didn't appeal...I need new friends - I had to work with what I had. This £7 H&M dress I bought 2 years ago always seems to be pulled out in these situations and somehow a dead ballerina of some variation sort of came about.
Getting face / body paint on in a consistent manner is harder than I got all lazy and I decided my legs can still look 'alive'
As I have been so many times, I always know which ones to go for; the Cirque Royale (gin and mint), Rebourne (with gin and elderflower), and the Ring masters poison (rum and cherry).
And also because I've been so many times, I know the pole dancer is usually there so here is my growing collection of photos with her...
Chiqui Love getting progressively more naked every time I see her...
So I love The Dark Circus Party because it has loads of the things I love in life; cocktails, anything to do with the circus, fire eaters, burlesque, pole dancer fancy dress, dancing and a big massive party. It's a great night out plus it's something a little different. It's amazing how liberal people get when it comes to fancy dress and the circus.
...and seriously I'm going to work on some circus skills so I can knock on these guys door and demand a job at the next party.
