Similar to its sister party Trauma, Drauma is a massive party enticing the visual and aural senses in every way possible. Unlike Trauma, Drauma is more about fashion and less about fetish. (They’re both a titillating experience sure to arouse your revelry mojo.) Celebrating fashion, dance, music, hair and all that glitters, Drauma features a host of performances and catwalk struts to check out from the more than 300 performers and exhibitors.
On the fashion side, make sure not to miss out on the wares of local badass fashionista Kelli Martin and her street style couture of Anti.Label, Lindsay Heart’s (a Columbus native with a boutique in Hollywood) rock ’n’ roll looks and the members of Ooh-La-Las Burlesque modeling Truly Scrumptious’ sexy paper creations.
The entertainment is just as plentiful with Nina West hosting for the second year, and L.A.-based indie electro/pop duo Happy Pills headlining the bill. Other acts include the EDM soundscape of Mister Shifter and goth-infused bangers by DJ Shawndy Spider Throat, creator of The Suicide Ball.
