Alternative & Burlesque Fair, Manchester

This weekend saw the return of the Alternative and Buresque Fair to Manchester.  As regular readers will know, it's an event that I attend as often as I can - as much as I love browsing the stalls and enjoying the atmosphere there are always lots of friends present that I can catch up with, too.

Unfortunately, last week was spent suffering from a bad cold, which was sadly still evident when I woke on Saturday morning, but I had promised to meet the team from Kiku to have a fitting for my most recent order. So, feeling a little poorly I wrapped up aganst the cold harsh winds of Storm Desmond and headed off to The Ritz, where the Fair was being held.

I managed to be near the front of the queue, so as soon as the doors opened I was straight in and headed to the refreshments section for a hot tea.  The throng of customers hadn't yet flooded into the main hall, so I took the opportunity for a quick photo of all the enticing stalls that lay in wait.

 The refreshment stall had some other goodies waiting, but I was a good girl and stuck to my plan of a steaming hot tea.

I found the Kiku stall and took delivery of my first item - a corset that was custom-made for me with shimmering sheer panels.

 Despite being a fairly extrovert girl I wasn't going to strip off completely to try it on for size, especially being a bit unwell, but I did try it again when I got home.  A truly stunning item - well done Kiku!  My second outfit, a dress, still needs a couple of alterations, but I hope I can wear it soon and show it off.

I had a bit of a look around the other stalls and had a brief chat with the friends I saw.  As usual there was still plenty to look at, from stylish, dark, sexual latex to cute rockabilly hats and bags, and pretty much anyting and everything in-between.

 However, my cold was starting to make itself felt, and tiredness was creeping in.  I usually like to stay at the Fair up until the end of the day, but by 2.00pm I was heading back home in a bid to shake off the cold so I can enjoy the last few weeks before Christmas.
