The Fame Ball.

Lady Gaga: The Fame Ball: January 10, 2010: Chicago, Illinois.
My Dad and I in front of the merch tour bus
So im finally back in action on my blog. I thought a great subject to come back with is the Lady Gaga concert that i attended on January 10th. It was a Christmas gift from my Dad. It was an amazing gift and im so glad that my Dad and i got to see this concert together. After he flew into Chicago from Phoenix and i flew in from Tulsa the 3 day Gaga weekend started in Chicago. Saturday of course included Gino's East, H&M, and various exploring since i had never been to Chicago. From there i worked on my puff ball dress all night and morning. I had to make a quick anxious trip to Michaels due to the fact that i ran out of puff balls.
Nerves were prominent on Sunday due to the fact that i was not only meeting the Gaga herself but also giving her a puff ball corset that i had made....but we'll get to that later in the post.
We were literally front row center. The line that divided the stage in the middle lined up perfectly between my Dad and I's seat. Ive been to literally hundreds of concerts but i have never experienced a concert like this. By far the best concert ive ever been to.

The above photo is my favorite. No zoom. And the expressions are priceless.

The Manifesto of Little Monsters was mesmerizing. I want to put a tv in my studio and have this video on loop all day long. Incredibly inspiring.

My favorite part of the fame ball. It was an amazing piece of performance art.

Meet and Greet.
I have to first tell you that Oprah was filming the entire m&g. Oprah wasnt there but there were cameras everywhere. We got special treatment that no other m&g's have received which was surprising. Usually she comes to a table an a common area but instead we got to go backstage into the dressing room area.
My Dad meeting Gaga. He asked for a kiss so he could be the cool Dad and she giggled and said "well your already the cool Dad for asking."
I gave Gaga a puff ball corset that i made. She loved it. The entire room of her staff roared with excitement when i gave it to her. I spent quite a while with her. Longer then i expected. I checked the times that my fathers photos was taken and the time that my photo was taken and there was a 7 minute difference. We talked for a little bit, she recommended a designer to me, and she signed quite a few things for me, including my lucky New York metro card. I want to keep most of the other parts personal cause it was a very big moment for me.

I hope you guys enjoyed a little bit of an inside look into the show. It was amazing and again i thank you Dad for this incredible experience. My 2 inspirations/ icons are Edie Sedgwick and Lady Gaga and my Dad helped me meet one of them.

Videos: All mine except for the Manifesto of Little Monsters. DO NOT USE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.
