Lorraine a' Malena ROCKED Mini CON
Talk about a rocken party! Fabulous Lorraine knows how to keep a party going all night long. I learned so much this trip.. For Example, to be a successful rock star you must perform, not just sing. Lorraine is truly an entertainer. I am too, but she's got FIRE on tap that girl! When she took me to the airport, the tears fell in gallons. Recording this CD feels like home. The Sci-fi/Horror/Fantasy fans are my people! Oh yeah! I am incredibly proud of my star trek geek background. No khakies or loafers here my dear. See, I can't even spell khakies correctly. Hee hee.
These conventions foster self expression and individuality like no other group I've seen. There is no judgment. If you want to go full on goth or just be casual and wear a pickle hat, you are accepted. We nerds ROCK man! I've always loved conventions. I grew up wanting to be Princess Leah and Wonder Woman. I didn't know it was possible to miss people you just met until now.
Not only is Fabulous Lorraine my best friend, but my mentor as well. We had QUITE a few photoshoots this week. What started out as a frightening experience for Lorraine turned out to be a blast. I teach Lorraine how to model and she teaches me how to ROCK! You see, I'm in charge of the Frou frou fashion and she's in charge of the stage. We taught each other how to relax.
The corsets were a huge success. Our friends Jody and cool Mary learned how to shed their inhibitions and become leather clad ladies of the night. Of course, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to dress up my friends. I'm in the height of my glory when I can share the "Malena Collection" of jewels, corsets and gowns with my friends. At Mini Con I showed the girls how to make a shirt out of a pair of fishnets. Hey, you do what you gotta do!
I will miss all of you terribly. I feel like I am part of the Minneapolis family of ROCK. Thank you for accepting me so kindly. AND.......
Just for the record, you don't ever have to be nervous when approaching me. I admit I may look like a Goth Dominatrix, but inside I'm Goth Snow White. Anytime you want an autograph or just want to say hello, Please! Walk up and introduce yourself. I promise not to make you lick my boots. Hee hee
On that note I am going to try and sleep here on the plane back to Hollyweird.
