It was a very happy reunion between the Sketchy Girls and Art Monkeys of Christchurch. We'd been on hold for a few months – plotting, planning and venue hunting in our quakey ol' town. We went ahead with the much anticipated Dr. Sketchy's debut of Harlow Lestrange in 'Date Night Jitters'. Our new hosts for the evening were the fabulous and hospitable folk at the Canterbury Bowling Club.
The mesmerising Harlow Lestrange starred in our voyeuristic take on date night primping and preening.
Her sultry good looks set our hearts a-throbbing.
Our audience settled right into our new (if unorthodox) haunt. The Canterbury Bowling Club president didn't quite know what to expect, but soon joined the ranks of Dr. Sketchy fans!
We invited everyone to come dressed to impress with their most striking date night attire. And what a turn out! Seductive boudoir minxes, several well suited suitors, a BDSM mistress and one irresistibly adorable attendee in a dinosaur onesie. Our Art Monkeys all vied for the best dressed award.
Harlow's first performance for the evening – what's a girl to wear?!
Luscious locks at the ready and pout perfected. Harlow sat back and waited for her dream date to make an entrance.
Under dressed? Never.
Harlow shook off some nerves with an energetic and enthralling hoop performance!
Hooplah ooh la laa!
A well earned beer completes this picture – drinking, drawing and dames!
Our best dressed suitor was the lucky recipient of a voucher from Absolution Tattoo and Body piercing... as well as some special treatment from Harlow!
Some 'post-it'-modern art that we feel illustrates Sketchy antics rather well!
It was a fabulous night of debauchery much-missed by the Christchurch Sketchy Girls, we are incredibly happy to be back in operation. For more photos of this session, perv on our facebook album
