what happens in long beach, stays in long beach.

or maybe not. but before I get to that, here’s what has been happening. obviously, school. just been busy taking humanities tests every class period, doing more and more research for chile, rocking the business law class with witty posts, and hanging out with awesome people. I can’t complain. so far this session has been really busy but great at the same time. and today was one of those days where everything goes extremely right. very lucky, I am.

anyway, let’s move on. saturday, was a productive and fun day. I did a shoot with an old friend, went thrifting with christine, fell in love with a cute boy at goodwill, and also experienced one of the most bizarre nights of my life. my super adorable friend marina invited us to an art exhibit called kinetics, in which she was showing a few of her rad music photos. so why not? I was already in the area, never been to long beach, and marina is just too cool to say no to. it all seemed fairly normal, until I heard some of the following words to describe potential activities for the evening: burlesque, fashion, art, nudity, dirt, eggs, paint, firedancing. intruiged? well, here’s a somewhat lengthy rundown of the weirdest night I’ve ever had. PLEASE NOTE: some of the images posted below are NSFW and contain nudity. I warned you, so now you may continue. enjoy!

















…and then it happened.











and of course, after a night like this, I didn’t get home until after sunrise.


other fun facts to note: the main doorman went by the name “T7” …which is super badass. he let me take pictures wherever I wanted. that snake? at one point during the right it somehow crawled across my back. pretty strange to suddenly find a snake wrapped around you. I also almost got set on fire by the firedancers, because one of them dropped their flaming stick right in front of me. ohhh, the things I do for photography. also to note…those two painted girls? yeah. they’re sisters.
