The Vampire Ball

So on Saturday night, I was invited to go to a “Vampire Ball” with Andrea and Lars.  I didn’t know how I would feel but I did go in the end.  I brought my brother Iain with me too.

Andrea is someone I’m just getting to know.  She’s been a friend of my brother-in-law Shawn for ages, and she is a professional bellydancer.  I had sold her one of my leather corsets at our garage sale last May.

I wore my vinyl catsuit, vinyl corset, and my rubber thigh-high boots.  It’s been a long time since I laced those babies up.  Rowan was pretty much in awe, as soon as I got the boots on, she kept saying, “Wow!  Cool!  Are you a vampire?”  Sadly, the corset was a lot tighter than I remember it, but I got it on.  (Later on in the women’s restroom a friendly stranger laced me up tighter than I was able to on my own).

Andrea looked great as a vampire.  She had on a cool off the shoulder black dress, trimmed with feathers, and the buckled leather corset on top.  And I got to meet her dance teacher, Mona.   Mona was wearing what looked like a peacock blue vinyl dress  that laced down past her underwear, with a bright blue wig and a peacock feather collar.  It was a pretty neat outfit.

It’s interesting the people you meet.  Both my dance teacher, Sadira, and Mona each have about 30 years experience under their belt.  But I have always wondered about the two of them, because I have had the sense they are very different.  There is no way I could picture Sadira out in some fetish outfit, but it seemed to suit Mona just fine!

In any case, I did not stay out too late.  Those boots I have may be gorgeous, but they are NOT meant for walking.  As I tottered to my car in 4.5 inch heels, I thought, If someone tries to accost me, I wouldn’t even be able to run for it in this ridiculous boots!  Luckily my car was only a couple of blocks away.

Rowan had wanted to go with me, but I told her that I was going to a bar, and she was too young yet.  But to appease her, I said, “Don’t worry honey, I’m sure we’ll go to bars together when you’re older!”  So now she keeps going around saying, “And when I’m a big girl, I’m going to go to bars!”  The other parents at daycare are probably going to think I’m the biggest lush. ;p

  1. Hehe. I am sure you looked gorgeous, and Leif enjoyed the view 🙂

    As far as not being able to run away in 4.5 inch heels, hopefully those babies are sharp enough to painfully puncture potential accosters.
