Would it be terrible like Whitney Houston and Boy George when they returned to Australia? Would it be full of oldies trying to reclaim their youth? Can we verify the rumours that the two girl singers really were men? We waited and endured the horrible pre-show line up, we danced to the awesome 90's music and early 2000's like we were at our high school discos and early clubbing days and we were so FRIKKEN HAPPY when they graced the stage to sing all their hits (well they mimed a few but it was still cool seeing them do their thing right in front of us). There was no fancy lighting and back drops, just a reason for friends to scramble together, take a roadtrip and dance our asses off to our old favourite songs. I loved The Vengaboys.

What I wore:
My jacket was second hand. I could fill a whole plastic bag for $2 and this was one of the things that I shoved into it. I love the colour, and the shoulders and the buttons....
my skirt was actually I dress that I picked up for $1 I think. I loved the pattern and it was a long flowy dress but it was so narrow and made for a tiny waist. But I brought it anyways because I knew I could do something with it. So I chopped it off at the waist and sewed it with an elastic waist. Bag is thrifted. My earrings were also shoved in the $2 bag but I don't know if you can see them clearly...they are really cool like an old chain from the 80's.
We stopped in Sydney and got ready in my cousin's garage because no one was home.
Hair was chucked up quickly and sprayed in place with my friends hairspray. It was a last minute "please bring hairspray if you haven't already left" text, and as always they came through.
That's why I love them so.
