The Monster Ball

"I can't pay my rent, but I'm fucking gorgeous!"

Nothin' wrong with being just a little bit vain
We need a little pretty cuz this country's insane
So go ahead and label me whatever you like

As many of you may know, The Monster Ball came to town and you can bet your sweet ass this monster was there. I went to the second show in Houston with three other friends, including Avan 'Memoirs of a Gaysian'. She was amazing -- a great performer, inspirational, comical, and has more endurance than a normal person should have. I don't want to spoil much because I filmed some great footage that I hope to be putting together in sometime soon. The tour isn't ending soon. So get your hands on some tickets to upcoming shows if you haven't already!

P.S. if you're going to I definitely recommend dressing up and NOT waiting until last minute, *ahem* the day before, to look for an outfit.. I ended up just packing essentials from my closet and putting something together once I got to Houston.

Since it was Gaga, I decided to wear a tamed smokey eye and added some edge to it with bottom lashes. I just grabbed some of my friend Moni's old lashes and stuck them on the bottom. Whatdoyathink?

Here are some less serious pictures of us in the car on the way to the venue and in the parking lot. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I lost my point and shoot camera months ago, and you can't bring in SLRs into the venue -- hence the lack of photographs.
