Machine Dazzle, in heels, is seven feet of walking wearable art. The costumer to the downtown court, his creations have been seen at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and on beautiful bodies––the likes of Justin Bond, MIA, and La JohnJoseph. There’s no telling how high his headpiece will go, but he’ll certainly be the most beauteous and challenging model at Madame du Sketchy’s, Molly Crabapple’s first queer session of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. The life-drawing club night regularly welcomes burlesque babes, but tonight, “rippling man-hunks and glamorous drag queens” (including Machine, Deja Davenport, and Ian) are the canvas candy who will either be dressing up or stripping down, all for the sake of art.
