…..and moulin rouge

Moulin Rouge, 2012 Thanks to Nina Van Duynhoven

Of course there was quite a lot of corsetry at the tango moulin rouge event last night. Looks ranged from total underwear to Spanishy/Moor type costumes and there was also quite a lot of androgyny.

Hats featured for both sexes and there could almost have been more hats than corsets. The men looked elegant in tails and top hats. I don’t believe I saw a man wearing corsets, but then I didn’t inspect everyone.

The food looked amazing – absinthe fairy cakes! Goodness me.

We are lucky to have Nina in Wellington to organise such splendid events and also to have so many people willing to help out. And dress up. I’m only sorry the hip/feet gave up the ghost before the end of the night. But three and a half hours. Not bad for me.
