Crank and Flaire ring in the new decade

So, we were invited by the lovely Sweet Soul Burlesque girls to join them down at the Dollhouse and help them ring in the New Year.  It was to be a fabulous party.  They had chosen a Tim Burton-inspired theme – “A Nightmare Before NYE”… so you can think Beetlejuice, Alice in Wonderland, Corpse Bride, and Nightmare Before Christmas inspired costumes galore.

Also, they had the one and only, occasional member of the Glitch Mob, spectacular sound designer and amazing DJ – Kraddy come on up from LA and show us how it’s done.   He blew the roof off the place.  Here’s a little of what he’s known for if you’re unfamiliar.

I had the further cool opportunity to spend the early part of the evening shooting many of the party goers in a little photobooth that we set up near the stage and DJ booth.  We even went one step further and invested in a small portable photoprinter to allow us to easily sell prints of the shots I took.

But as the party heated up, and a little burlesque show began before midnight, we stowed the photobooth to make room for all the crazy dancing and fun that would carry us on into the night.

So welcome to 2010 everyone.  As you can see… the new year, the new decade, the new energy.  It has inspired me to start blogging and to get together my websites for real.  I can’t deny that I feel excited and energized.
