A Brush With Death - A Fashionable Scream/ Bougie Magazine Article and Upcoming Events

I've been slow with blog posts these days because of family visits :), which left me LOTS to talk about and updates to my lovely readers :) Here goes..

(1) A BRUSH WITH DEATH
Elle, one of our beloved Calgary Fashion contributors invited Binzento Vincente to a local magic show called "A Brush With Death" at the Lolita Lounge, Inglewood last week.  Since my family visited me from Hong Kong, I thought it would be nice to bring them along for a little entertainment. 
A seasonal magic show hosted by the local magician Yeats Wong, "A Brush With Death" is magic extravaganza with a hint of morbid comedy. I previously did a little preview interview with Yeats Wong for Alberta Report on Fairchild Television :) He recorded it on TV and posted on YouTube (Note: The show was in Chinese (Cantonese) language but the interview with Yeats was in English :p).

This was actually my second attendance to this magic show. In conjunction with the Halloween, this season's "A Brush With Death" was darker, bloodier and "SCARIER" :) The performers of the night include TriXtan, Ryan Pilling, our host Yeats Wong, and of course, every magic show has a "magic assistant", "A Brush With Death" has Gwyn Auger

Arm chopping, fingers cutting, and head slicing in a wooden box, though are all just magic tricks, the realness of the performance made me cringed a few times. The guys AND gal did an excellent job keeping the crowd excited throughout the night. There were certainly a few entertaining and funny moments too!

The next season's "A Brush With Death" show will be in early 2012. Anyone who is looking for something to do on a weekend night, or maybe a "first date" suggestion (if you are ready to man-it-up for the ladies), def check out the "A Brush With Death".

(2) BINZENTO VINCENTE FIRST ARTICLE FOR BOUGIE MAGAZINE!

I recently wrote an article for a Chicago/ Los Angeles/ Houston based magazine called: Bougie! Editor and Chief of Bougie Magazine: Angela Reed was kind enough to invite me to write an article on the topic of Evolution in Fashion for their recently published issue. Also proud to say that I am their first "international" contributor! :)
Being a huge supporter of local/Canadian fashion, I decided to mention one of the fashion events I went to at the time: Fabricated in the article. N.R.T Fashions, Chi Chi Courture…YYC based designers were mentioned in this US digital magazine :)
Bougie also made a FULL PAGE spread of Binzento Vincente in this current issue!! THANK YOU Bougie!
