Went to a fancy dress / Victorian era / Burlesque show. I'm not quite sure what I was supposed to be other than Victorian era gent, possibly some kind of engineer or that chap from The Time Traveller.
The drawn on moustache was Nina's idea. She went as Oliver Twist's Nancy, calls herself a seamstress, indeed.
I made me a top hat out of cardboard and then frantically spray painted it black. I admit I was sceptical about whether it would be any good, but iot kind of worked in a Jolly Top Hat sort of way.
They wanted to use it for the meat raffle, but someone had knocked the top out of it by halfway through the night.

There were burlesque acts doing their thing. They were dancing and teasing the audience.

This one grabbed a hat from a gentleman in the audience and slathered it between her buxom cheeks to the cheers of the male half of the audience, the women however are still recoil horror from the memory.

Top Biscuit indeed

Aye, so the burlesque folk were all part of a troupe/class where the teacher / final act of the night was Goodtime Mama Jojo
