I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
Fabulous Fun With Fashion
Madame Tussauds at Darling Harbour was reimagined as an after hours pop up playground for adults. We arrived as strangely dressed strangers but were united in our enjoyment of shared experiences.
25 included entry to Madame Tussauds, a Stoli cocktail, cider or beer, and a variety of fun activities. You could choose to take your turn to bust a move at the silent disco, craft a sequined mask, learn some Madonna moves or embrace your inner dress designer.
During the evening tickets were given out to well dressed patrons to strut their stuff on the catwalk for prizes. Not everyone dressed to impress or got involved in the offered activities, but I am sure they still enjoyed hanging out with the 'rich & famous' for a discounted rate.
Food and drinks were available at reasonable prices and a band of friendly, happy Hijinks staff were on hand to assist with the fun. Professional dancers, makeup artists, stylists, DJs and burlesque performers were also on hand to lend their expertise and style to the evening.
Strike a Pose @ Madame Tussauds was a fantastic night and I would encourage my friends to join me in attending similar events. Everyone seemed to be having a good time evidenced by the laughter and smiling faces around us.
