Wild Party

The creative week came to a close with a photo shoot/party with some of my dearest friends, including the photography duo, Pat and Ellen Prather. I was not involved in the shoot, but I had a blast playing the part of the voyeur.

As luck would have it, it was the same weekend of my annual holiday reunion with high school girlfriends, and the talented Mary Trahey, a "makeup-artist-transformation-goddess-extraordinaire" was in town from LA.

Mary did her magic and turned Casa del Rob y Maria into a film noir circus of flappers, drunkards, vampires, and clowns.

It was fun to watch several members of the Chicago Misfit Photographic Society and Punk Rock Club in front of the camera, instead of their usual behind the lens (although several were seen snapping candids of the before, after, and during).

There was food and drink to share:

This will happen again…next time perhaps with zombies…and chocolate.

P.S. Curious, anyone ever read Joseph Moncure March’s The Wild Party, illustrated by Art Spiegelman?
