Sorry it took me forever to write more about Viva, but between being ill, enjoying Viva, and other such silliness, I have had no time recently! But I do want to let you in to the innards of Saturday at Viva, and my there is a lot to get through!
Saturday is probably the biggest day of Viva because there are a lot of important events going on, such as the car show. I actually wanted to go to the burlesque competition, but had to let that go so I would be able to see JD McPherson, which was only 30 minutes afterwards! So you can see where a girl might get flustered at having to make some difficult choices!
The weather in Vegas was fabulous as usual for the car show, with it being around 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. I wanted to get a parasol in order to prevent getting a sunburn or a tan, but alas, money issues arose after getting some items Friday and a pre-order for a suit from Vintage Suits by Mary, so I ended up with a mild burn, unfortunately 😦 But I still had enormous amounts of fun at the car show, and here’s pictures for all of you!
There was also a little makeshift wedding chapel there, where in typical Vegas style, you can get married by Elvis! I know at least one of my friends on Facebook did this LOL!
One of my favourite parts of the car show was that I got to meet Erin Cummings, Masuimi Max, and Doris Mayday at the Pin Up Girl Clothing Model Lounge! All of the ladies were so sweet. Doris gave me this huge hug when I said hi to her, which was a bit unexpected for this New Yorker LOL! But definitely not unpleasant 🙂 Masuimi also basically grabbed my boob when she saw my pen necklace and grabbed it to get a better look. Erin then commented, “That’s the Joan necklace, from Mad Men!” to which I agreed. They were all going on about how much they loved it. Then I managed to get Doris to autograph the latest issue of “The Pin Up” in which she is the cover girl. All in all, some amazing and totally fun ladies!
Then, of course, since I could not go to the burlesque competition, I did the next best thing – burlesque bingo!
This is Audrey DeLuxe, from LA. She was the hostess with the mostess and was such a cutie pie. I wanted to take a bite of her!
These are all of the lovely ladies that were hosting that day. The one lady next to last on the right, Truvy Trollop, was absolutely hysterical! She had all of us laughing 98% of the time. Loved her!
This is a part of Tara MiSioux’s performance. As you can see, she would take her clothes off, and drop them on a board, where Miss DeLuxe would announce the numbers covered by the clothing, which you would mark off on your bingo board until you got a bingo.
After the performances and there were at most four bingo winners, they would go up on stage and roll the fuzzy dice they had, seeing who rolled the highest number, and therefore won. They had great prizes like professional photography packages and things that were absolutely fab!
This is my friend Kitty Kin-Evil, rolling the dice and going on to win! I was happy for her, and had to take a pic 🙂
After the fun of burlesque bingo, we ran to go to the ballroom to wait for JD McPherson. I will have my next post all about it! Stay tuned, dolls!
