On Saturday last weekend, I attended my second Ball for the year. This one was The Bloodlust Ball (a vampire / goth theme ball). Back in the day, my cousin attended these balls when she was into the Brisbane goth scene, and she has been reminiscing over the Bloodlust balls since they were re-incarnated a few years ago. Unfortunately for her, they have always been on the same weekend that we were attending the ACG Ball in Adelaide. But not this year. We got our tickets early, and unfortunately afterwards, the date for the annual regency ball was released to be the same evening (so we missed out on that this year).
There were fewer attendees than the Gangsters Ball (which I have attended in years past) however there was much more seating available. It was a lovely evening out, there were two performances of belly dance – the first with four ladies performing a routine, the second with a single lady dressed in a Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) inspired ensemble. They were amazing, and I stood there awed by their talent, and desperate to try my hand at belly dance again. I tried to get a few photos, but the lighting was not so brilliant.
