And so The Steampunk Yule Ball was THE PERFECT end to 2014!! [Dec. 24th, 2014|06:59 pm]
Miss Von Trapp

I don't know where to begin...

The Steampunk Yule Ball was an unbridled success with 500 or so beautifully dressed Steampunkers going between two main rooms at the Exeter Phoenix and the bar and the market and everywhere...

It was packed. It was heaving. It was glorious. And I'm not just referring to my bosom in its corsetry...

Downstairs we had such fantastic performers as Birthrite, BB BlackDog,  Lord Montague Jacques Fromage,  The Mysterious Freakshow and Professor Elemental, expertly compered by the lovely Monty JF himself...

Upstairs we had the mahvellous GurdyBird,  ME, The Wattingers and Fantastic Ms Fanny with a special guest appearance as Jack The Ripper by Betty Boom Boom.  It was epic and I had an amazing time sharing the compering with Ms Fanny. Uproarious it was indeed...

There was no room to move in the audience. At all. A HUGE room totally packed out with people even sitting squeezed on the floor at the front and hanging through the doorway!! My half hour (ish - oops) went down fantastically and I had a awesome audience. Loved every minute!!

You can see my ENTIRE Christmas Carol Carnage set on my YouTube along with the now traditional duet with Professor Elemental: Baby It's Cold Outside...

... which was SPLENDID!!

The evening ended with Jack the Ripper burlesque performed by Fantastic Ms Fanny and Betty Boom Boom... This is me (above) demonstrating to the burly virgins how to woop and holler...

And much shenanigans and craziness was had by all... As you can see above, Fey Pink from The Mysterious Freakshow,  The Gaslight Troubadours, The Professor and myself had a bit of a selfie moment... probably around 1.30 in the morning!!

Or possibly later if you look at the running order below...

And I had a spectacularly splendid time. My half hour set was brilliant, all the performers and the audience and the venue and EVERYTHING was brilliant too. Thankyou Exeter for being so amazing!! And many thanks to all the performers for being so lovely and Fey for inviting me and Fleur for driving me home...

And I got home just after 2am, I had just about 2 hours sleep and had to be up at 5am and go into werk to manage my team. Broken wasn't the word but I still lasted out until 8.30 in the evening on pure adrenalin as I took my daughter on the Santa Train...

And now it's CHRISTMAS! ! And I am barely recovered but excitedly looking forward to new events in 2015 with my wonderful Steampunk fiends.

I LOVE YOU ALL!!
