America's Beauty Show was in Chicago a couple weeks ago where American Crew launched their new Elvis inspired men's hair product campaign. Elvis is known for his rock and roll classic American look which is perfect for such an iconic brand! American Crew brought to life one magical night at the multifaceted Venue One event space located in Chicago's Fulton Market neighborhood. American Crew really set the scene with Elvis EVERYTHING! There was a 1950's band playing, a runway show, 1957 Chevy in the middle of the show room. Guys were getting their hair cut, people were posing on the blue carpet, not to be confused with a red carpet. Everyone was having such a great time! We brought some great 50s inspired props like an Elvis Mic and acoustic guitar. Did we mention that everyone had great hair?!

Seeing as we are avid Stanley Kubrick fans we were delighted when hired by Kapow Events to bring our vintage themed Chicago photo booth to an "Eyes Wide Shut" meets secret society themed masquerade party. The event was hosted at Venue One in the West Loop but it was a far cry from your typical corporate holiday work party. Obviously it was a bit more tame than Kubrick's psycho-sexual crazed film but it was not any less entertaining! The walls at Venue One were colored Oxblood red (apparently that color is hot right now!) and they had low rumbling bass music playing throughout the venue which was creepy awesome. Did we mention guests were greeted by non-speaking masked individuals with nose horns? The many flat-screen monitors on the wall played a slideshow of cryptic phrases such as "Drinketh From the Horn of the Horse," "Mask your Identity," and "Leave in Silence." As the party went on there was a great live band called "The Deliverables" who played fully masked. Everyone loved taking crazy photo booth pictures with the wild masks and a few unicorns even paid a visit!
