certainly this is not meant as a disparagement toward those who curated/produced the show and did an amazing job (the displays were very cool!! and i did like the music, just not for a live standing-room-only performance), but, for me…..dressing up was 90+% of the fun. i got coiffed with a great group of ladies and we were very excited and had loads of fun getting all stuffed into our corsets and putting on our gorey accoutremonts. but once we got there……i didn’t realize it was going to be such a “see and be seen” scene. lots of standing around. not much activity. i guess that’s what happens when costuming and drinking are the major focus. or maybe i just wasn’t in the mood. everyone else seemed to be having a pleasant time.
in any case:
