It was a wild night at The Parish for the second issue launch party of Velvet Dust Magazine. Party-goers were encouraged to attend in their very best carnival attire to match the theme of the second issue: Illusions.

Zach from Dance 'Til You're Dead, DD Dagger, Vayu Aeriels and The Exchange Artists lent their artistic talents to the night of fun surprises.
