Winter Horrorland Fashion Show Pimps Pasties, Leather Bras for Xmas
When we picked up a flier for the "Midnight in a Winter Horrorland" fashion show at First Friday, we figured we'd go and possibly get a little last-minute holiday shopping in for those hard to buy for friends.
We ended up treated to a short but sweet bit of eye candy that included glow-in-the-dark skirts, leather pasties and Zombie Santa. The fashion show was originally supposed to be one of Black Light Mass's weekly affairs at Rasputin's Ranch in Chandler, but it was moved to Evermore Nevermore in Mesa.
Perhaps the group lost their usual site because of the goings-on at previous BLM events: If you haven't been introduced to their delightful debauchery, check out their MySpace page. We're talking DJs with their "needles" hanging in the wind, serious B&D (if you have to ask, don't bother) and live buffets of doughnuts and cake served atop half-nude girls. But we digress.
There was no nudity at Sunday night's fashion show, though some of the models did come awfully close...
The girls get some bodypainting action backstage.
Do these legwarmers make my feet look fat?
The highlight of the evening was El Vaquero Muerto, the leather designer who we've spotted at local tattoo conventions and roller derby games. If you're still searching for a holiday gift for your geek sweetie, El Vaquero Muerto's got a few interesting options. For example, a Batgirl wrist cuff. Or a leather bra with skulls and roses on it.
This leather bra by designer El Vaquero Muerto (right) costs a pretty penny. But at least you can bet your sweetie won't have one already.
bra will set you back at least $175, possibly more depending on complexity of the design and size (obviously, there's more material involved in making a size 38GG than a standard 36C). If that's too rich for your blood this Xmas, no worries. There's always the cheaper -- and much more revealing -- pasties.
