On Thursday, there was Sinivalkoisin höyhenin - book releasing. It's a book about Finnish drag, written by Tiia Aarnipuu. Nea bought the book, and I already borrowed it from her. Haven't started reading it yet, but I'm sure it's an interesting book!
The book releasing ceremony included drag artist NikoLa's performance, which was amazing! (He's the one on the left of this picture, on the right is the writer Tiia Aarnipuu). He sang a song which had so funny lyrics! We took a video of it, but unfortunately it looks like I've lost it, I can't find it anywhere...
After the book releasing there was Night of the Finest Drag gala show. The tickets were quite expensive so we didn't go there.. Even though it would have been amazing to see all those drag artists. Instead of that show, we went to the church.. There was rainbow prayers. I was curious what would it be like, but actually it was quite boring event really.
On Friday, I woke up too late and didn't go to Tampere at all, unfortunately. Nea went with her another friend, and they managed to see a play 'Sex & Propaganda' for free. It sounded interesting..
On Saturday there was supposed to be an open-air event, but unfortunately it was moved to inside Yo-talo, probably because it was supposed to rain on that day. Would have been nice to spend time outside though, have a picnic and so on..
This is the make up I wore on Saturday. At first I created a rainbow eye make up, but then I thought it's a bit too much and took some colours off. The blue & pink eyeshadows I used, are from Nea's neon colours eyeshadow palette, which is an awesome palette. I also love the make up Nea wore on that day, it's simple but colourful.. I hope she's going to post pictures of it on her blog! ;)
But well, we went to Yo-talo. There was performing a young drag artist, Linnea Von Kattendam. The stage was only small, but the performance was great! He's different that most of the drag artists, he was playing old crazy ugly lady. And he played her so well.
After the drag show, Nea & I went to my house. We were drinking and playing board games. We had so much fun! We were also planning what make up to wear on Sunday.
Yeah, we thought about wearing manga make up. I love the pink manga make up Nea did! It's so cute. And her eyebrows... so funny!
On Sunday, we didn't really wear the manga make up looks though, it would have taken too much time and we didn't want to wake up so early.I wore black cut crease make up. Even the drag artist liked my make up!
There was Night of the Finest Talent! happening. There was some girl singing, some girl band playing, and magician performing. And what's the best, the same drag artist who was performing yesterday too, Linnea Von Kattendam! Today (s)he played only 3 songs but it was awesome show. The stage was bigger than on Saturday, and it just was sooo good. We took videos of the all songs yesterday so I didn't want to take videos today. I took only two pictures, because he was moving so much and I didn't want to chance the settings of my camera so I could get better pictures, I just wanted to enjoy the show and not focus on my camera.
After the show he came to talk to us, he remembered us from yesterday. Later on I added him on facebook, and we talked there. He's a very nice guy! I definitely want to go to see his shows more often. :)
