FLG at New Bohemia NYE party

Earlier in the night, before the crowds descended… Merope is lit to match the mystique and glamour of the night.

There was plenty of hype ahead of the decadent New Years Eve party at the Armory this past week: New Bohemia NYE delivered a long night of glamorous entertainment to celebrate 2014, and we were excited to contribute our star Merope to the party.

The event featured circus acts and incredible costumes, aerialists and DJs, burlesque dancers and live painters, steel play structures, acrobats and absinthe purveyors; the whole night was a resounding success of a party. The building itself, the Armory, is the towering castle-like structure known to many as the home of Kink.com, an adult entertainment video production house — a far cry from its former life as a National Guard facility! It’s a truly impressive facility: palatial rooms with distant ceilings, sweeping curtains, regal decor. (You can take a tour!)

Happy 2014 from the Flaming Lotus Girls!

TIMF is an awesome party!

On Saturday morning, Merope passed her first fire inspection with the new tricked out fire effects, and with the blessings of the SF Fire Marshal, we ran her through the night at the Treasure Island Music Festival.

Merope ready for the show, before the gates opened. Sitting on a circle of dry wood chips, situated beneath a cable of electrical lights and flags made of synthetic fabric. Perfectly safe.

Chilly concert-goers huddle around the hot star for warmth.

… and we got a little nod on SFGate: Meike, sharing the gift of poofing with a TIMF-goer.
