first things first, if any of you have been experiencing difficulties with Hippie Frou Frou it’s due to some changes that are in progress. i.e. I BOUGHT A DOMAIN! giving the ol’blog a facelift as well as changing up the name. thought about this for some time and feel that the current name just doesn’t represent me as well as it used to. new name: LadyFLASHBACK.com
like the way it sounds as well as represents my love for photos and also my inability to post anything in a timely manner and am constantly “flashing back” to previous memories.
i have been told it will automatically direct my readers over as well as transfer my stuff, we’ll see, should be happening tonight! bought it late on Monday evening and google said at most 3 days, cross your fingers for me!
speaking of flashbacks, i realized that i never posted photos from the first Electroport to the ORIENT at MJQ. it was a fashion show [styled by Recollection Vintage], dance party [4 djs!], AND COSTUME party! free cover with an asian, steam punk, or futuristic outfit. best believe i pulled out the trusty space girl suit!! let the roomie borrow my mini vintage kimono and we partied till the break of dawn-literally.
i would so wear this outfit on a daily basis. comfortable and it MAKES crazy times happen//just couldn’t do that round here, would get to many hoots and hollers from the bums and nutties!!
i broke my lazzer wand at some point in the night, or day. i know it was towards the end. it lived a good life…been on the hunt to replace ever since and just cannot find the exact match. such a bummer, it always made people so happy.
this night was actually kind of destructive, not only did the lazzer wand bit the dust but after taking nearly 300 photos that night-no joke!-my memory card got corrupted and died. no explanation either, didn’t drop didn’t do ANYTHING other than the normal overload of photo taking…which it should be used to by now…bottom line, i lost all photos, but luckily OhSnapKid took loads that night and i just so happened to be around the lens!
“hello my party SPACE people!”
one of my friends, Oni, modeled in the show and afterwards we partook in some yummy cupcakes, nom noms!
all the outfits were so funky, really like this ensemble: the puff sleeves and scrunched skirt are killer AND re-worked vintage-loove!
can’t get over the colors of this top, they are so crisp && vibrant, then with the butterfly addition-doesn’t get much better. i had to share the back, kinda blew me away!
incase you’re wondering what “steam punk” looks like, this is a pretty good example. according to wikipedia it’s:
a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used — usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era Britain — but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wellsand Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date.
pretty neat stuff!!

LASTLY, this interesting asian-fusion chick//the hair creations were so interesting, and i know 1st hand it can be painful, but these girls rocked it out! such a fun fun night, really hit up Atlanta like rock stars and STILL have bruises to prove it! ugh, was dancing on the runway//stage after the fashion show was over and fell off, bahah, injuring my knee cap and bruising my shin so badly i still have two lumps with blue spots, it’s kinda sick. but i played it off and no one noticed, so that was good, but yea-that night was N/U/T/S!
this weekend is Electroport to the Ancient Empire of the Aztecs-yay for feathers, face paint and more costumes!
again, hope everything goes well with this transition and i SUPER HOPE i don’t loose any of You All! please stay tuned for more updates, it’s only going to get better from here!
