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 idea of the beard goes back to its origin. In fact beards are one of the very few external distinguishing marks that show the basic features of us humans. I myself wear my beard convincingly because it simply is a part of me since I travelled to Peru five years ago growing my beard longer and longer. That’s when I became the „alemán con barba“ , the bearded German, who collected sun energy in the old Inca sites.
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.
On Saturday Yeni Raki invited to the Spirit of Istanbul festival to celebrate modern Turkish culture in our city. They invited a lot of Turkish-run local businesses to host a booth in their mordern bazaar, including celebrated fashion labels Issever Bahri and Ina Seifart, as well as Mvschi Kreuzberg. On the food side they had delicious vegitarian food by Knofi, sweets by Chocolateria Sünde, several street food stands and a big live cooking booth. On the stage they presented a diverse program of oriental and contemporary dance, live music, DJs and performances. Enjoy my impressions 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.
For this year’s special I HEART BERLIN live event Claudio and I chose something that we feel particularily excited about: Halloween. Bringing together creative minds from the worlds of theatre, perfomance art, fashion, publishing and music we created the House of Haunted Hearts that opened its doors on Thursday with a DIY costume workshop, a haunted house with artistic performances, an outfit contest, a haunted porn booth and of course a big Halloween party.
It was a huge success for us as so many people came with amazing costumes and great enthusiasm for Halloween. In fact I took so many photos that I have to split the set into several posts starting today with a look behind the scenes and into our Haunted House that was created by set-designers Buchholz&Kraatz in the huge basement of our venue the Naherholung Sternchen. Inside was not only a creepy labyrinth but also performances of Israeli artists Gal Naor, Moran Sanderovich with sound scapes by Inon Peres, as well as choreographer Patrick Faurot. See for yourself 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.
Only 3 days left until our big Halloween event and you probably aks yourself the big question: What the fuck am I gonna dress up as?! To give you a bit of an inspiration we assembled our favorite Halloween looks from recent years for you into a big party photo set on 2 pages.
