Las Vegas Baby!

Last month, a couple of the team at Gandey World Class Productions spent a week in Vegas and what a week it was!

We stayed at the New York New York Resort hotel on the strip, the week was non-stop. Starting off with a trip to the canyon and walk on the sky-bridge, this was an amazing breathtaking experience, the canyon leaving them speechless due to the enormity of this natural phenomenon.



When in Vegas you must try and get to see a show, we chose La Reve at The Wynn and Absinthe at Caesars Palace.
La Reve is one of the most beautiful, amazing productions I have experience, directed and produced by Franco Dragone, the sheer athleticism of the artistes leave you in awe and the props and production of this show is magical, this is just a “dream” of a show.

Absinthe – this is the spiegeltent show in front of Caesars Palace, a very stripped back kind of a show for Vegas, no trickery, just down to the quality of the artistes and the MC, I’m pleased this show is doing well and have just been granted another year at Caesars, it’s great to see a “European” style show doing so well in Vegas.

This was my favourite act in the show, performed by two very
sexy and talented aerialists
The mouth watering buffet at the Bellagio  - I thought I’d died and gone to heaven! Two beautiful hours spent tasting the most amazing and varied selection of food I have seen under one roof”, The prime rib of beef just melted in your mouth – this buffet is highly recommended but try and beat the queses and get there for the beginning of a session.
Lastly Vegas wouldn’t be Vegas without casinos, most of the hotels have them and they are HUGE, most of the hotel run classes in the mornings for the various table games, we chose the Craps class, as interesting as it was, I did leave feeling more confused than when I started and a month on, would struggle to remember most of it...but it wouldn’t stop me placing the odd chip here or there ;)
We left Vegas a bit weary and tired, but definitely returning soon, for now back to the UK to finish off the last two venues for the Ladyboys of Bangkok.

Last Minute Halloween Costumes

You were adamant you were staying in for Halloween weren't you? But suddenly fancy dress fever has hit and you're raring to get dressed up in your best, most creative outfit! Alas, the stores have sold out of all the fiendishly fancy witches outfits and there's not a single cauldron in sight.... You've taken some inspiration from our Halloween beauty bloggers challenge, but it's not quite ticking the boxes. 
So here's our:

 Last minute Halloween Costume ideas!




An obvious option for your Halloween Fancy Dress this year is becoming a Lady Boy! Literally! One of the acts in this years Lady Boys of Bangkok show features the fabulous half male half female costume. This would be super easy to achieve, all you'd need is some male and female clothing you don't mind cutting in half. Perhaps get a friend to join in to, so the other half of the clothing isn't wasted!


Along the same theme, the human chameleon also known as Lady Gaga has stepped out this week with a rather sophisticated looking moustache. We're not quite sure what the theme behind this outfit is, but we love it! Slick your hair back and pop on your best facial hair ladies!


You could also go for a subtle Poison Ivy inspired make up look similar to the one Phee created as part of our Halloween Make Up Challenge. We love this look as it's so glamorous and pretty yet still keeps within the Halloween theme without being scary at all!


And for any men who fancy being hilariously ironic by doing the 'anti costume, costume' here are our two favourite last minute 'costumes' for you! The 'nudist on strike' T Shirt really tickled us, and if you're a fan of the American version of 'The Office' then you would have seen Jim Halpert rocking the classic 'Face Book' costume as seen below.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween 2013?

Celebrity Men... As Women.

Introducing the all new show... The Lady Boys of Hollywood!! 

....Joking, of course. 

When we stumbled across these amazing photoshopped images of celebrity men transformed in to women we just HAD to share them. The likes of Daniel Craig, Robert Pattinson and even Hugh Heffner have been completely transformed in to an interesting and hilarious set of images channelling their inner Goddess. We can't help but think some of their new found femininity wouldn't look out of place on the Ladyboys of Bangkok tour! Of course they would have to get their hands on a few more sequins and a touch more glitter to fit in properly with the line up, but there's definite potential there.

This Is Halloween

Halloween is almost here!

There's nothing the Lady Boys of Bangkok love to do more than play dress up and what better occasion to do it than at Halloween. This year they have the day off from the tour to celebrate in style (glamorous, spooky style that is) and are currently finding things to do on their way to the last leg of this years Glamorous Amorous tour in Belfast. As they were browsing for some costume inspiration they came across the awe inspiring new collection from Charlotte Olympia in the form of these ultra unique and gorgeous Halloween inspired shoes! Featuring bats and cats and pumpkins (oh my!) the glamorous take on the 31st of October tradition are fangtasticly stylish, but they certainly don't come cheap! With prices starting at just shy of £400 they're certainly an 'investment piece' for your seasonal wardrobe.

What will you be dressing as this Halloween?

Happy Halloween from the Lady Boys of Bangkok

Happy Halloween Lady Boys fans! 
Have a ghoulish time!!

FASHION: Barbie Has A Make Over

Every girl's style icon Barbie has had a high fashion make over! Fashion designer Herve Leger has created a unique collectors piece in the form of this limited edition Herve Leger by Max Azria Barbie. Barbie comes complete with a stunning red bandage dress and black and white jacquard dress, manufactured at the same factory as the full collection. Not only are these dresses available in miniature Barbie size, but you can also buy the full size dresses from the designer too! Looking endlessly chic and sophisticated, Barbie has come a long way from the baby pink pop look she is more familiarly associated with. Ditching the bleach blonde locks and opting for a richer darker shade of hair colour, Barbie looks as classy as well, any miniature doll in a designer outfit possibly could! If you'd like limited edition Herve Leger by Max Azria Barbie in your life it will set you back the grand total of £110 in the UK and is sold exclusively at the Hervé Léger by Max Azria flagship store.

The black leather harness belt also wouldn't look out of place in the new Lady Boys of Bangkok show either, particularly in their tribute to 50 Shades of Grey (which has quickly become one of the highlights for many from this years set list). If you've seen the new show Glamorous Amorous you'll know exactly what we mean!
