•••••••• What is Vogueing? ••••••••

You all know Madonna's "Vogue" track that brought the style of dance to the world's attention? Under neath the surface of that pop video is a whole world, perhaps best & most famously encapsulated in the cult film documentary, Paris is Burning, which explored the late 80's/early 90's world of vogueing in the ball culture of NYC.

Under the veil of Halloween, we figured we could make this vogue contest a multi-gendered spectacle, so we're throwing the only costume contest in Omaha that will make you WALK for that money!

▷▷ First, whatever costume you do, it's all about fooling the public, making them believe you embody that character, gender or social class.

▷▷ Second, you gotta give us some of that vogue flavor. We'll have some pros give some quick instruction before the rounds.

▷▷ Categories will include safe bets like best overall costume, but then dive into traditional vogue categories like best Butch and best Butch Queen

((((((( BTW: House of Loom isn't a straight bar and it's not a gay bar. It's a peoples bar. So we expect all genders to jump on this. )))))))
