Once I arrived Kash ( TKL ) had already nailed down her collection and was gone. Mel ( MHS ) was still there setting up with the help of our good friend Jorge.
It didn’t take long for her to leave as well.
The girl’s plan was : go home, change and return to the show. Which I honestly didn’t understand the point, due to the fact that the show started in less than an hour and they would never make it back on time. Especially since the show was in the city and they lived in Queens and Brooklyn.
They decided to take the chance anyway, promising they would be back in time. Ugh, what was that for? I spent the whole night not only advertising my work, but theirs as well. It’s not that I minded, because I know I’m pretty good at it, but simply because I wasn’t prepared for it.
On another note, I was so grateful for all of those who came to support and show a little love. @PositiveP and @ethinaaa above, two cuties. Phil showed up which I loved. And these gorgeous ladies, Sara, Jess and her cousin stopped by as well.
Of course my Misha was there, and Q was awesome the whole night. Especially because he was treating my finger.
During my lunch break I was working on the final touches to a lifesize cardboard Minxette cutout and while cutting around the bodies I ended up slicing my finger with a box cutter.
At least all the blood was for a reason, everyone loved the cutout.
Mel finally arrived 15 minutes before the show ended, giving her enough time to say her hello’s around the room and back around to say her goodbye’s.
Once our time was over and all our canvases were packed we headed outside to bump into Kash, angry as ever.
Kash was busy arguing with the bouncer because she was misinformed about the time the show was supposed to end and basically mushed the guy and bombarded inside the venue. The bouncer ended up calling the cops and was ready to press charges. Everyone was arguing back and forth.
I ended up having to be the one to calm down the bouncer, speak to the manager and not have him press any charges.
Especially false charges like trespassing. It wasn’t that serious, even though Kash was acting a little out there.
After Kash walked around the block and calmed down a bit, we moved the show to the streets of the lower east.
Using my cardboard cutout we stopped strangers to take pictures, laughing and handing out my business cards.
