Berlin Fashion Week Event & Party Guide
I’m actually not really the type who would reminisce about the past. But when I look back at the year 2013 I have to admit that this year was in many ways special for me. Special because of the things I did and that happened around me, but also because of some personal realizations about myself and my life that ultimately make me a very happy guy. As you guys are somehow part of this life I would like to share these special moments along with some highlights of the blog in 2013…
On Satuday the kids of SXX SELLS celebrated their big White Ball at P.O.P. and offered quite a lot for their Christmas party: Vibrator icicles hanging from the ceiling, Christmas buffet with candy canes, cupcakes and ginger bread, condom photo wall courtesy of Eis.de and none other than Peaches at the decks. It was an absolute blast! Enjoy the photos and – by popular demand after a long break – animated party GIFs after the jump on 3 pages.

The Cyberfest is one of the biggest festivals for technology-based art in Europe and while it has been taking place in St. Petersburg in the past years it will now have its premiere here in Berlin at The WYE starting next Wednesday with an opening reception and party hosted by I HEART BERLIN.
This year’s edition titled Time & Place will feature the work of over 100 artists in the fields of sound, video and performance art with screenings, concerts and exhibition spread out in a program running from Wednesday til Sunday (Nov 13-17, 2013) in the different floors of The WYE, the cultural, artistic and intellectual hub in the heart of Kreuzberg at the old post office building at Skalitzer Str. 86. Additional events will also take place at Platoon Kunsthalle at Schönhauser Alle in Mitte. You can take a closer look at the program here and join the Facebook event here. The whole event is free of entrance. Make sure to come by the vernissage on Wednesday from 20-23:30h and the after party at the Privatclub next door of The WYE starting at midnight with DJ sets by Hubie Davison and Jaan Ugrinsky. Some more impressions and details after the jump.
The famous Blitz party belongs to the very few that we have covered quite extensively and from the very beginning. When it started 3 years ago it filled a gap in the Berlin nightlife and I am grateful for it. It became the party to dress up for and look your most spectacular – especially my camera loves that! This Friday one of my favorite parties in Berlin is celebrating its 3rd anniversary and – sadly – also its final dance. This is going to be the very last Blitz party and it will take place at Cookies. It was an amazing run with great parties and I am happy I was somehow part of it. A big thank you to the makers behind it for some wonderful nights on the dancefloor. After the jump I collected my favorite photos from all the Blitz party that I attended to. And we are giving away 2×2 guestlist spots. Read on for more info and photos.
After I missed the last 3 edition I finally made to the SXX SELLS party that is run by my fellow bloggers Laura, Dustin, Mauri, Basti & Marc, Jan and their friends Candida and Matthias. It was the Mean Girls Halloween Edition and it was quite the party! To be honest I haven’t seen a party with such a beautiful crowd and as fun as this in quite a few years (except for our own events of course…) and I was happy to be there and take photos. If you enjoy the latest pop music and are not too cool to publicly dance to it, than this is your place! Enjoy my impression on 3 pages after the jump and next time let’s all be Mary Jane Holland on the dance floor.
Last Days is turning 4 years already and you know what, Lindsay Lohan is still alive! So let’s have a big fat and wild Last Days 4th Birthday Party coming Saturday at Backyard just like Lindsay would love it. More on the party, the DJs and how to win 2×2 guestlist places after the jump:
With the final photo set of our House of Haunted Hearts Halloween event we want to show you the impressions of the costume workshop with the sweet guys from Dodo Magazine. They came up with really clever and cute monster costumes and it was really a pleasure for me to see our and their readers come together to get crafty. That’s a new one even for us! Here are some before&after GIFs from the participants. Thanks a lot to the make-up team of Jenna Smith, as well as to Glacéau vitaminwater and Michelberger’s Fountain of Youth for the refreshments! If you haven’t seen them, don’t miss the photo sets of the haunted house, the party and the haunted porn booth. The workshop photos after the jump!
After the photos of the Haunted House at our House of Haunted Hearts Halloween event I would like to finally show you the photos of the party including the outfit contest that was hosted by our amazing Tati The Fruit Salad who was just great on stage! We hope all three winners were happy about their prices. Thanks to our jury: Kaey Tering, Nicole Roscher (Von Bardonitz) and Chris Phillips (Pornceptual), and of course thank you to Bershka for presenting the award for the most fashionable outfit! Enjoy the party photos on three pages after the jump.
Night life Berlin is the title of a great book of photos that tells the visual history of drinking, celebrating and dancing in Berlin from 1974 until today. Check out a preview after the jump.
