Felix da Houseparty - Union City
It was exactly this time last year when the idea of "I Throw Party. I Take Photo. You Party. You Post-Up. Everybody Happy." originally developed. Making friends finally come to us, we at Union City brought people from New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Toronto for 2008's "Felix da Houseparty." The title stemmed from, if you didn't already know, Chicago House DJ Felix da Housecat (who we met a week later and drunkenly told he was our party's namesake). For the original "fauxtobooth," I MacGyver'd a portable coat rack, a fleece blanket, and a clip-on head with a photo-flood light bulb for lighting. Oh, how much I've grown.
So here's to you, Felix. Some fauxtos are a little blurry. Most subjects are a little drunk. And, Cielito has a lot more hair.
