The wine flowed and so did blood, tears and goulash.
We shot fast fast, I'm amazed that Lelo and Kim were able to catch what they did.

The dinner marks the turning point from mere post-apocalyptic dysfunction to downright Greek tragedy.
The amazing roast-pig is the creation of the talented Hiroe Gotto who spent most of the previous night giving it the finishing touches.
The bridal makeup and hair on Stephanie DeLatour were done by Amanda Ryan and it was Mia Bauman who had the pleasure of messing up James Allerdyce yet again.
On the right is Catriona Rubenis-Stevens who gave a stellar performance as Lil'.

Lee endured the weight and awkwardness of his additional accessories gracefully. They included 4 amazing dead animal props completed just in time by Hiroe Gotto and Cristina Atkins.
