JetPilot goes to the Smoke - Tactical Ninja
Mar. 26th, 2007
10:22 pm - JetPilot goes to the Smoke
As you probably know by now, Wellington Dance Collective bombed Bliss at Space in Auckland on Friday night. Unfortunately, JetPilot couldn't make it. *mutter*dumbstoopidphd*mutter* However, not to be daunted, we just used our leet scientific skillz0rs and made a clone, and took him along for the ride.
As you can see, he was quite excited at the prospect:
First, he had to get his hair done by the stylishly dreadlocked Talldingo:
One must look one's best for such an event. *nods* Then of course there's a nice relaxing massage - only the best for our boy:
A bit of socialising with Tim the Hippie..
And a boogie with Gadgit..
And then it was time to start some serious hobnobbing.
First with Rich d'Rich..
Then with DJDee (who found the whole thing highly amusing)
And finally, to cap off the evening, we bring you JetPilot b2b Helix! W00t!
The next series of photos demonstrates just how popular our boy was with the laydeez...
I'm not sure what happened after this. JetPilot disappeared. I'm pretty sure someone took him home. *cue whistling and heckles from the cheap seats*
So, since our boy had sorted himself some company for the rest of the weekend (he was never seen again but I'm expecting he'll show up sooner or later.. maybe), the rest of us were left to entertain ourselves.
Our host entertained himself by running through the dancers with a ladder, making everything perfect - and yes, everything was brilliant. Feedback from participants has been universally positive as to how well this party went off, and here's why:
Because of this guy and his ladder. *nods* This party had massage, bubbles, lollies, good decor, good lighting, good djs, four zones, a beautifully private chillspace, a vip lounge complete with poufs (sp?), fresh fruit, chai and ambient music. There were uv and fire dancers too. I've probably forgotten something, but the collective opinion is "OMFGWTFAWESOME!" Thanks to this guy. He did get to enjoy himself later, but organising a party like this is no mean feat. We should bung one on for him, so he can just turn up and have fun.
allyn and Charlotte had a Pink Pants Parade:
There is a third pair of these Pink Pants floating around, that only fit a very few of us. There will be the Pink Pants trio one day soon, oh yes..
I found a friend:
And, for those who were curious, Flick got a good (if tiny) shot of the dress:
rivet was, as always, fetchingly lovely:
Doesn't that smile just make you want to smile too?
And, the WDC stopped dancing for a few seconds (well some of them did), for a group photo. This was our furthest excursion so far. We are now known in Auckland. And yes, we brought the shiny - in the form of 400 glowsticks, some squishy flashy toys and a pot of UV body paint for folks to decorate themselves with. Photos of that here.
And now follows a lesson learned by me - take your lollipop out before snapping! These are the shots that didn't make it to other places. *sheepish*
IN WHICH I LOOK LIKE A DORK..
But Shameless Heather and Rich look good!
This is Dee still finding everything highly amusing, and Sam blending beautifully, and me looking like a dork..
And here's me making a new friend, who remembered to remove his lollipop.
Eventually I found a friend and remembered about the lollipop:
At this point it was around 2pm the next day, I still hadn't slept or changed, and we were returning props to the Most Amazing Treasure Trove of Stuff In The World. They even had .. well.. WTF?
Remember, I'd been up for 32 hours by this time. The concept of giant papier mache fish and assorted plastic seagulls was not altogether unrealistic.
By 7pm we were done and it was sleeping time. 13 hours later I awoke feeling normal. Go figure.
I'm sorry I didn't get to catch up with you Kyla. Just not our weekend, next time, ok? Also - I'm quite happy to come sip coffee and watch you get a haircut.
I got a lot of cuddles this weekend. I like cuddles. A lot. This is a good thing.
Also - yay for well set-up chill spaces and fuzzy cushions, and friendly people and good company. But mostly, just yay! I had an awesome time, JetPilot's doppelganger had an awesome time *wolf whistles*, and we'll definitely be back for the next one. I have a hankering to put on a party of my own..
And as a final comment - important things you should know:
So, Mr Pilot? Are you happy with how we looked after you? You realise that when you come up for Bliss 2 you will have to wear the yellow t-shirt and your goggles - and everyone's going to go "Oh! So you're that guy!" And we might find out who took you home..
I think I should go sleep now.
