Right, I’m flicking through last night’s photos from Bareface’s event – and this is what I’m seeing….
There’s a kaleidoscope of everything trendy. My best friend’s model legs are draped over lip-stick red bean bags, worldly tattoos being barely hidden by tiny vests… Everyone’s chilled – which is unusual for Dubai – as they discuss art and cigarette brands.
As I continue searching, I’m suddenly overwhelmed with delight as I reach several photos of two rather giddy guests in the new ‘Studio’ space. They’d hit a rather unpredictable and extensive dress-up box. One of the two guests was a man, elegant in stance, yet almost toppling over due to the weight of a bizarre, massive giraffe hat.
Where on Earth do people obtain giraffe hats?
He’s there, cheekily being lent on by a giggly girl with a fan, his moustache quivering with glee. The girl of course, is arseing around with a fan - trying to tickle the giraffe’s neck… coquettishly.
Absolutely perfect. I’ve found them; my first muses for my first blog drawing.
I remember getting my camera. Click. I would get to them later…
I carry on …… and eventually come across an arty, bald, cool-looking bloke with a tattooed arm. I try to subtly capture with the moment with my camera, but ending up being rather obvious as I click him indiscreetly at least five times!
He probably thinks I’m some pscho future stalker with a crush on him! Great. That image will work well with one of Dan, who’s from Bareface, also flashing his inked arm in a photo, which he told me was created in Sharjah – the tattoo that is…
Anyway, this is kinda fun! As I reflect on this first entry at The Studio’s opening in the Courtyard, I realize I am going to have to get my butt out there. Admittedly, this will be a bit of a shock to my couch potato system, but kinda exciting too!
See you next time guys!
