Marina and the Diamonds @ the Fillmore 7/11/2012

(source)
Wednesday night I had the pleasure of seeing Marina and the Diamonds preform at the Fillmore in San Francisco with my beautiful sister-in-law KIKI. This was actually our (me, Kiki, Boz, and Tom's) third time seeing her preform in the city, so we knew what we were in for and we were really excited about it. I made Boz set the alarm on his phone for me when I found out she was touring again so I could be one of the first people to get tickets. 
I love her truly madly deeply. 

here's what I wore:

kitty nails
skirt: topshop
socks: DIY
shoes: ebay

I was also wearing one of my big white felt bows in the back of my hair, but failed to get a picture of it :(

Boz was posing like Bowie


snuggle buns


obsessed with this skirt.
I was shinning like a magical (land loving) mermaid.
we stopped for energy drinks on the way there, I'm so used to waiting in the car with the kids while Boz runs into whatever store to get whatever thing that I did just that, even tho I was alone. Waiting in the car is LONELY without the baby nuggs.
we got there early hoping that we would be able to get a spot up front, but the line was already wrapped around the block.


...Mmmm KFC
once inside I met up with my darling internet friends 
ohitsjustcecily tangerinecoloredskies, & xanadujulie!
Julie bought us all matching Marina hair ribbons! SO CUTE! 
KIKI!!!!!
I call this my Adele pose, because "I set fire to the rain, watched it pour as I TOUCHED YOUR FACE"
 I don't even have words for how wonderful she was. Like, I knew she was going to be amazing because I had seen her before, but the show was sold out and the energy was amazing. Marina fans are the best fans and they really add to the experience. We made friends with anyone who would talk to us, I sang and danced with strangers, everyone was so friendly and fun.

I had a few people come up to me after the show who recognized me from tumblr!
on the right in that AMAZING pink dress is Jemma (http://neonlolita.tumblr.com/) and her beautiful friend Kim! How awesome are those flower crowns?
me and Julie hiding behind my impromptu paper fan. My face was melting off from all the dancing and jumping around. Bangs were a bad choice.
 We waited around after the show fingers crossed that we would get to meet her this time, and were told that if we waited in a line outside that she would be taking pictures and signing posters for her fans. YES! 


the girls and I waiting with our posters


we waited for what felt like forever, freezing our buns off, but nothing was going to stop us from meeting our lady love!
all of the fans around us were so lovely! I had so much fun talking to everyone and making new friends.
AND THEN IT WAS OUR TURN!

flawless goddess Marina was RIGHT THERE! The cutest person I have ever seen, and she was WEARING MY PANTS!
 After I took this picture for Kiki and Julie is was my turn! I was so excited, but as I walked towards her, feeling like I was going to puke, her handler/security dude jumped in the way PUSHED ME and told her it was time to go. Our new friends standing right behind us managed to snap a quick picture with her before the handlers/security men tossed her in the getaway car and drove off. I was STUNNED! I couldn't believe that had just happened. It was all so quick, and she was right there! I may have had a few too many cocktails, and SHE WAS RIGHT THERE!


I totally cried in front of everyone. 


I was so embarrassed


Malorie, one of the girls who we had met in line, came up and comforted me.  She even gave me the Marina poster that she had signed. I can not tell you how much that meant to me. Like I said before, Marina fans are the best fans. I've never seen so many caring and friendly people in one place.

It was a WONDERFUL time. Even though I personally didn't get to meet her, the show was FLAWLESS, the drinks were strong, and the friendships I made are priceless. 


It was perfect.

    1. thank you so much! I had way to much fun getting ready before the show. I love having a reason to get all fluffed up :3

      You could tell the she wanted to meet all of her fans that were waiting for her, I'm guessing that she probably had a flight to catch, or had to get on the road ASAP to make it to the next show.

      I am SO excited that you get to see her! You are going to LOVE IT! Take lots of pictures for me :D
