HBO HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA LAUNCH PARTY. PRIVATE TV SHOW SCREENING AT LOFTSEVEN IN LOS ANGELES.
Look out Los Angeles — Yukiro Dravarious and La Carmina have landed! We kicked off the nightcrawling with HBO’s private launch party for a new TV show from the producers of Entourage: How to Make it in America.
StudioBooth took digital photos of the guests with a wireless remote, and then projected them on a large screen for everyone to see. (Don’t we look like bats?)
It was a pleasure to see old friend Rony of Rony’s Photobooth, who took the photos above and below.
Yukiro’s hair is newly died purple; I love the transitions between the dark and neon. He’s wearing homemade top and bottom eyelashes, and painted in his eyebrows thick for a Sunset Boulevard effect. How on Mars did Yukiro create the lift in his hair? It’s a secret… and we’re not telling!
Cheers to free champagne! I’m wearing a People’s Market dress (a London brand with boudoir and flapper influences), a NYC fabric market fringe around my neck, Daiso red rose hair clips, and my new Lip Service jacket. Black faux fur, spikes, vinyl… so over the top. I bought it because it reminds me of Gackt’s coat in the Vanilla PV.
The party was at LoftSeven, an airy white penthouse with a 360 degree view of downtown LA. We watched a preview of the HBO show, How to Make it in America, which “follows two enterprising Brooklyn twenty somethings as they hustle their way through New York City, determined to achieve the American Dream.” The artsy cast of characters strive to make it in fashion and energy drink entrepreneurship, with plenty of ups and downs and round-and-rounds.
No matter when or where, we’re dramatic. Rony came by and called us silly.
What did we think of the fashion at the party? In Yukiro’s words, “It was not top quality.” (Oh, I die!) The handful of grandmothers rocked, but everyone else wore generic upscale hipster… (You can see more pics on StudioBooth and Rony’s Photobooth).
And then we rushed back to meet the rest of the Undead Metal-Head Adventure Team. More LA coverage coming right up — and we’re off to Vegas tomorrow to promote the new clothing line at Magic Clothing Tradeshow! Will anyone be there? Come say hi to us at booth 21306!
