Fetish Formal: Featured Entertainers

Rip Williams & Shawna Cory + Alyxzandrea Asher

Need yet another reason to get excited about Weekly Alibi's inaugural Fetish Formal? Joining us in both the Dungeon of Visual Delights and on the main stage are award-winning artists Rip Williams and Shawna Cory. If you haven't done so, secure your spot in our voyeuristic hedonist's heaven now at bit.ly/fetishformal.

Rip Williams is the longtime host of Guerrilla Photo Group (GPG), a frequent winner of the Best of Burque Best Arts Event and a group designed to hone the skills of photographers, models, art directors and more in a collaborative, nurturing environment.

A photographer in his own right, Williams has won Best of Burque's Best Photographer category more times than this writer wanted to go back and research. In addition to his work developing the visual chroniclers of the next generation, he also hosts two get-togethers per month at his Downtown studio for people who are interested in the art of rope bondage.

Shawna serves as the art director for GPG, curating (along with her team) their quarterly art shows. Shawna is also an accomplished photographer, and I had the pleasure of meeting her when we were both working with the Bella Donna Burlesque Review.

Rip, Shawna and their team will offer Fetish Formal guests several thrills. They'll be utilizing their rope skills twice—yes, you'll see Shawna fly—and featuring some other favorite types of intense play in the Dungeon of Visual Delights. It is a rare treat to catch a glimpse of these two weaving their magic, and we are delighted to give them space to do so.

Looking forward to dinner before the big event? Duel Brewery taproom (located in downtown Albuquerque) is offering anyone with an invitation a lovely place to have dinner while dressed to the nines, and a discount on your meal. Duel has fantastic fare to share and prep your palate for the hedonistic delights to come.

Don't want to wait until November to give the Taproom a try? This Saturday, Oct. 29, Enchanted PopUp Presents: Strangers with Candy. Your MC and several cast members will be out in force to entertain and answer questions about the Fetish Formal. (The Taproom hosts a variety of events, ranging from open mics to yoga classes, check out their Facebook page for a complete list.)

Don't forget, Free Radicals would be thrilled to help you find the perfect thing to wear, and they're offering a discount too: 13 percent off your purchase with proof of your invitation. Don't worry if you don't have your invitation on hand yet; the email receipt works just as well.

Are you or one of your dates coming in from out of town, or are you just looking to make your night of decadence last until dawn? We have also partnered with Hotel Andaluz, which is offering discount codes with your invitation. In addition to its beauty and historical significance, Hotel Andaluz is the only full-service boutique hotel Downtown, and their staff would love to see you before and after the Fetish Formal.

We cannot overstate how pleased we are to have fetish sensation Alyxzandrea Asher with us. Ms. Asher will be performing one of her delightfully fetishistic burlesque performances on our main stage, and she is looking forward to enjoying the evening's sights and sounds. She'll have some photo prints available for purchase and will sign them for you then and there; that's a rare treat, even for locals.

Asher has been performing for appreciative crowds for 12 years, and she has also been featured in numerous fetish calendars and magazines. A fetishist and exhibitionist herself, she was at the top of our list to headline the Inaugural Fetish Formal. Luckily for all of us, Asher will be there in fine form.

Fetish Formal: Shop Highlight

The January Shop

At the Weekly Alibi's Inaugural Fetish Formal, not only will you be able to enjoy the sights we've created to incite and delight you while you meander through the fabulous crowd, but we will also have some featured vendors for you to find something special to take home.

The January Shop was opened in 2013 to fill two gaps in the BDSM toy market: vegan toys, and toys that are affordable and well made. The founders are openly poly, pagan, kinky and leather: Robert Jones and Orli January, together with Orli's husband, head the January House Leather Family. The January Shop also employs other members of the kink community, and, unlike some of the very plentiful overseas companies that make BDSM toys, are committed to paying their employees a reasonable wage. That's right—you can bring social conscientiousness to your playroom at no extra charge!

When you walk up to the January Shop's table at the Formal, the first thing to catch your eye will probably be the brightly colored paracord floggers. There's a flogger to create any sensation, from thuddy to stingy, heavy to light. Orli's favorite part of vending at events is helping people find exactly the right sensation for them. Your Passport includes the opportunity to utilize Orli's expertise!

The January Shop also sells hand-dyed and -conditioned bondage rope in cotton, jute and coconut, cut to your specific needs. (We've invited Orli and Robert to demonstrate proper use in our Dungeon of Visual Delights!) In addition to rope, they'll have wearable works such as custom collars, leashes, body harnesses and jewelry. Your Alibi and Cabaret staff will be donning some of their custom jewelry during the Formal. (Look for the scarlet letter "a"s if you need one of us.)

The January Shop retails online and at local events, and wholesales both in the US and internationally. They also take appointments for Albuquerque locals to shop in person!

Leather/Lingerie/Masquerade Ball

Hedonism isn’t just about what happens in the bedroom--it is taking delight in all that life has to offer. For example, this Wednesday we have a Leather/Lingerie/Masquerade Ball at 4th Street Nightclub that will be one heck of a time. The Backroom brings it every Wednesday for the 21+ crowd, and they’re excited to throw this special event. I’ll be hosting, so make sure you say hello if I don’t do it first!
