Before heading to the party me and a few friends met for some drinks at Le Bar Rouge in Gamla Stan (The Old Town).
This place is very decadent in itself, so it fitted us perfectly! Above you can see my drink of choice!
Me and Tifa. (Photo stolen from Tifa...)
Since the theme of Fräulein Frauke Presents this time was "Under The Sea", most of us had dressed up as something that had anything to do with water. Fanny was a deep-sea fish - you know those fish that live so deep in the oceans they actually produce their own light - and had made a hat that, well, produced it's own light! I have to say this was perfect during the evening. Every time any one of us left the company to get a drink or something, it was very easy to find our way back to our little group among all the people - we just followed the light on Fanny's head!
I went as a sea nymph, and had made a diadem of seashells and sparkly things.
I had also created a seaweed-skirt. It was very revealing, but with matching panties, garters and corset from What Katie Did it worked well! Why hide such pretty lingerie?!
My partner in burlesque crime - Fabulous Fabio - had just come back to Stockholm from his second home - Venice - and was fittingly dressed as a gondolière, fully equipped with a blinking gondola on his shoulder!
Amazing photographer - and coproducer of Fräulein Frauke - John Paul Bichard, was as usual there to document the event with his camera, so here follows a few of his photos!

DJ Damón Zurawski from The Catastrophe Orchestra played lots of danceable tunes until the horrible lights went on, and we had to leave...for the after party!!! After an extraordinary evening i dived into bed around 5 am. The day after I noticed that wearing a tight corset that prevents you from drinking is really good, since it also keeps you from being hungover the day after!
If you want to see all Mr. Bichard's photos from the evening you can find them here!
Fräulein Frauke Presents also - of course - has a Facebook page! So if you want updates on coming events I suggest you follow it here! Next time she opens the doors at Nalen will be November 24, and the theme will be "Victorian Circus". What am I going to wear?!!!
