Glamour and Glow: Explosive, Seductive Celebration

by Charles Lee Schagne III
  More and more one realizes that when attending a WestCoastClubLife event organized by Dave Soko, one is going to get a little more than what is expected. In the case of Glamour and Glow it was a lot more. How to describe the visual excess and revelry of dozens of beautiful young women prancing around mostly in glowing body paint, posing for photos, seductively dancing on the runway in between fashion shows, or just hanging out on the dance floor. The World Beat Center was hot, but for more than just the lack of air conditioning. The atmosphere rocked with great music, bodies dancing non-stop, glow in the dark people and art, and just a joyous, exhilarating ambiance of sheer delight and fun.

Soko, who in a past life must have been a circus ring-master, loves to delight and shock, titillate and inspire. To call Glamour and Glow artistic, high- class erotica would not be pushing the envelope. Tailor made for Las Vegas, where it plans to go next; it’s a welcome respite for adults from the typical club experience. Hoop Charmer and Charmed Life delighted with their glow in the dark hula hoops and acrobatics. Seven designers/boutiques graced the runway: Money Grown on Trees, House of Flash, Brandi Bee, X-Kittens, Passione Boutique, Evil Lamb and Parris Harris. The models sported a lot of body paint, bikinis, and glow in the dark clothes appropriate with the theme of the party. Guests were encouraged to wear white and were provided fiber-optic accessories. Many of the artists present had glow in the dark art and decorated their wares with fluorescent paint.

Its also for a worthy cause, since part of the proceeds from Glamour and Glow goes towards the non-profit Lions, Tigers, and Bears a rescue facility that provides a sanctuary to unwanted and abused exotic cats. So if you did not make it out this year, make sure to make Glamour and Glow next year. Its an experience you will not soon forget.
