SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2014 - reVelation
NIGHT 3 ~ Theme: reVelation
An amazing journey through art, live music, poetry, fashion, performance, dance and much more to stimulate our body and soul in the theme of change. We saw some very edgy designs, some with frayed edges, in models of every type of body, hair colour and expression. Stellar dance performance, and MC! I was most impressed with K-O.ME design, as she had the best models, and with such variety and craftsmanship. Her silk ponchos were to die for. The crowd gave her a standing ovation. Another designer who was called DisctractedMoths also intrigued me, I would love to wear his design for Halloween or to a cosplay party. The most freaky part was the Bizarnival where 2 girls had a skit performance ended with one stapling lace to the other's body, leaving bloody marks. I don't know how this is considered performing art, stapling lace into someone's flesh and head....
Music kept it whimsical and fun, while there were many fashionable people there with fantastic outfits, hair, and make up.
