Pictures from parties spanning from around February to May – guess I’m not that much of a party girl!
Baile Tropicante @ Maus Hábitos
Thug Unicorn @ Musicbox Lisboa
Thug Unicorn @ Gare Porto
The last time I was in Lisbon back in November I went to two parties that got kinda crazy; Rabbit Hole, where my baby boy António Onio was doing a performance and Thug Unicorn – I think by now you all must be at least kinda familiar with it, right?
Here are some pictures of both those nights, enjoy :3
Before Milhões de Festa there was the return of Thug Unicorn to Lisbon, following a concert by the almighty Ghettoven and his gang of hotties.
Spent the whole day rollin’ with my girl bb Ani who I hope one day will come and just live in Porto already ~_~ ♥
We saw this blinged out car so…
And Thuggie we did!
Ani was such a tropper! All her friends ditched her, but she still partied her ass off with us ^_^ And then there was the stage invasion. First it was just these two guys;
Oh look, cool. These two guys are having fun onstage with us. That’s nice.
Oh, so now some other friends joined them. That’s also cool.
Oh, hey, damn so many people getting up on stage all of a sudden. Easy with the butt-shaking fellas, you’re tipping our drinks over expensive material over here! Heeey
This is getting a little out of hand. Security?
Ghettoven and his sexy babe Vania Canhango
Vania and Za Hu werrrrrkin it!
Thug Unicorn: All about that luvvv ♥
What do you get after an excessive four-day festival where you also happen to perform with the best people – other than massive exhaustion? A warm, fuzzy feeling of love, friendship and accomplishment.
Also, crappy pictures of your lovely friends ♥

Can’t wait for next year’s Milhões de Festa :(
So, it seems like this weekend I’ll be leaving my cave.
Here are some of Mauro Ventura’s portraits, he was also painting a portrait straight onto the wall during the opening, it was pretty cool. This picture was taken by Cristina Miguel, who was wearing wonderful neon eyeshadow and has enormous eyelashes ♥
This exhibition is a part of something very special that Onio is organizing, Portugal’s first Portuguese Festival of Queer Performance — Looseholesfest. The exhibition is perfect; it’s cheeky, provocative, appealing and so much fun. Rita Roque should change her name to Rita Rockstar because she clearly kicked some ass curating this event, along with Mr. Daniel Pinheiro. Here’s our video:
Today I really want to go see Penny Arcade at Maus Hábitos. She used to be one of Andy Warhol’s actresses back in the 60’s, she’s amazing and hilarious and her show seems really fun. I wish people here in Porto were open-minded enough to enjoy the awesomeness of these shows without any prejudice. Here she is, in the company of equally amazing Patti Smith and Jackie Curtis.
Also, there’s a Coronado Party, with which we might or might not be doing something pretty cool soon. I hope it won’t be super rainy outside (ugh), but I’m pretty sure everyone will have a swell time regardless.
Finally, tomorrow my girls from Thug Unicorn and I will be performing at the closing party for Looseholesfest. Here’s the video we did in collaboration with V!TOR. I am ever so dorky, but it was a lot of fun. And our parties are really friggin’ great and you should never, ever miss them!
Some of you probably don’t know but I have been in a couple of music videos in my lifetime.
I think this happened mostly because, as a photographer who needs people to photograph at times, I believe it’s good karma to help director/photographer friends in need, when I can.
Last weekend I was in Vale de Cambra shooting a video for Lululemon, which you should definitely check out regardless of your music preferences. Vale de Cambra is very, very cold and it was also very, very rainy that day in particular. Warms my heart to see my aquiline nose so nicely presented in the middle of tight, mysterious shots. Its pet name is Anne Frank, for obvious reasons!
Here’s the teaser for the video, and some other videos I’ve been in! Can you spot me in these?
Being all cutesy and whimsy for Aquaparque
Wearing the shortest shorts ever for X-Wife
Me and my nose, aka lil Anne Frank being supa mysterious for Lululemon. News coming soon!
Last Sunday I spent my afternoon shooting with the girls from Thug Unicorn – the footage for this video will be a part of V!TOR‘s promo video, but most of the footage will be for this amazing party’s promo video. It will be madness. Sheer madness! ♥
Spending a week in the countryside is amazing, but it’s also enough.
We didn’t have electricity on our last night over there. Trust me, sleeping in a huge house from the 16th century immersed in complete darkness without a flashlight – or even my cellphone – to shed some light on what I’m doing is pretty f*cking scary.
Pictures will be developed and posted soon!
Meanwhile, check out the Thug Unicorn Page on Facebook, I’m pretty excited about this party and its potential. Not just as a party, but the whole concept has a lot to be explored, image and music-wise.
If you’re in Porto, the first edition will be next Saturday and the main goal is to have an amazing time and make everyone’s booty shake. So, if you’re into that sorta thing you should drop by Plano B and be a sparkly badass with the rest of us!
P.S.: Seems like I will be scarring, sweating and biting people next week for a video. Fun!
