KiKi Allure was the last model of 2012 and she was absolutely amazing. I’d never heard “Let’s Have A KiKi” by the Scissor Sisters before, but it might be one of my favorite songs now. Well, this month anyway. I wanted to use it in the video below, but figured it wasn’t worth getting us sued out of existence.
Special thanks to KiKi Allure for being our artistic muse of the evening, thanks to our sponsors Atomic Books & Dupenny, Zack & Russell of the Windup Space, Maeve for holding down the door and helping set up and take down, Alexis for hosting; and to all you folks who showed up to draw.
The only way this session could have gotten any better was if Russell had gotten hip-checked through the front window.
Actually, you can say that for every session.
Or even going out for dinner and a movie.
The Junkyard Dolls roller derby team didn’t just bring “It”, they brought all the “Its”. They brought every pronoun that had even been seen in public with “It”, was in “It’s” little black book, or “It” had ever listed as a reference on a resume.
Watch the video, you’ll see. Really, watch it. If you don’t, I don’t even understand why you’re reading this.
Wow. I don’t even want to contemplate what various aches and pains haunted them for the next 3 days. I get back pains when I put too much mac & cheese on my plate, much less from HOLDING SOMEONE UP IN THE AIR FOR WHAT WAS PROBABLY FOREVER.
Atomic Books and the Junkyard Dolls provided amazing prizes for folks to compete for–you can actually see one of the contests starting to derail in the stinger clip at the end of the credits. If you don’t know Atomic Books, it’s a cool indy comic shop in Hampden on Falls Rd right off the Avenue. You should check them out. If you don’t know who the Junkyard Dolls are, well, I’m really confused at this point. They’ll have matches starting up soon. You should go watch one.
Thanks to Christian Tribastone, Craig Hankin, John Schloman, Kathleen Parker, Kimberly Keyes Stark, Omandi Consolloy, and Stewart White for sending in the drawings you see below. (If someone has a website I’m missing linking to, just let me know.)
And LOTS of thanks to the Junkyard Dolls, specifically. . .

If I missed someone, for God’s sake let me know. 🙂
Thanks as well to our sponsors Atomic Books; thanks to Jeff Schock and Alexis for taking the photos you see below; thanks to Russell of the Windup Space for slinging booze and tunes; thanks to Maeve for not only holding down the door, helping set up everything up and take it down, BUT also dealing with someone acting shifty at the door that evening; and of course thank you to Alexis for emceeing.
