Approached once again by the fine folks at Gawker Media to adorn their party guests in our inimitable painterly fashion we quickly agreed to zombify the patrons at their Walking Dead sponsored pre-Halloween event held at the notorious Box NYC.

Dirty Disco Launderette

Posted in 2nd Skin Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2011 by 2nd Skin

Wash, Spin, Tumble, Dry, and Get Down with your Bad Self! That was the disco call for the evening in Williamsburg, a neighborhood that barely blinks twice when a local 24 hour laundromat gets transformed into a thumping laser-light filled discotheque. Party planning whiz-kid, Adam Aleksander, once again pushed the boundaries and buttons of the local nightlife scene as well as the relatively tranquil facade of Metropolitan Avenue by hosting a pop-up nightclub in an quite unlikely yet strangely accommodating local business. Curious onlookers gazed amusedly at the swelling crowd as the thumping bass rattled out to the streets. While earlier in the evening Matthew and Laura Lee proprietors of painted personages plied their practice on the model/bartenders.

Within the Land of Ash: Halloween Danger Party 2010

Posted in 2nd Skin Events with tags , , , , , , on April 28, 2011 by 2nd Skin

The tale of last year’s Halloween Danger Party at 3rd Ward is an infamous one in the artisanal body painting lore of 2nd Skin. It is a story of trial and tribulation, of a race against the clock, success against the odds, and an ultimate defeat at the hands of a blown circuit breaker.
