Day of the Dead Party
Here are some photos from Urban Junkies’ recent Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) party at The Bathhouse – a wonderfully decadent and subterranean club located in Bishopsgate churchyard, London. Billa/Ian Baldwin’s photos (some of which are seen here) capture the feel of the night beautifully – although the Cazadores Tequila cocktails also probably had something to do with how we were all feeling. As you can see from the pics, my new Swirly Skull design made an appearance - in the form of a couple of masks - which was a last minute attempt at fancy dress. Fortunately the very talented Sarah Jordan was on hand to administer suitable Day of the Dead inspired face-paint. So after we eventually got our faces painted (which nicely hid the cuts and bruises from when I fell off my bike) the Swirly Skull masks were discarded, but judging from the amount of photos that they appear in they seem to have been passed around like battens a peculiarly macabre relay race.
