We continue our exploration of photographers who helped to make The Goblin Ball such an amazing night! This post Darko asks a few questions from Moe of Fotogenique.
The Goblin Ball was so much fun for us who created the evening! What was your favorite part of the evening?
For me, the best part of the evening was getting to meet all the actors behind the scenes, getting to know them a little more personally and sharing a few laughs with most of them. They are truly great people and extremely talented - it's no surprise they were chosen to participate in such a magical night! Also the opportunity of meeting the other talented photographers of the night was an absolute pleasure!
What was your favorite costume of the evening besides the best dressed winners?
My favourite costume would definitely have to be the beautiful young lady with the snakes on her head Medusa. I was amazed at the talent and effort she had put into making the costume!
What was your favorite photograph you captured on the evening?
I call this "Elegance at the Bar" - my absolute favourite photo.
What is your favorite part of photography?
A difficult question to reply to, as there are so many aspects of photography that I would consider as "my favourites". However if I was to choose one, I would have to say the reaction of my subjects when they see the images created for them is the most rewarding part of photography. Knowing that my hard work and determination to produce the best that I can has paid off!
Would you consider returning for The Goblin Ball 2015 - the power of Voodoo?
Would I consider it? It would be an absolute honour to be there!
There were so many amazing photographers at this years Goblin Ball we thought we would ask them a few questions and feature some of their favorite photographs from the night.
Kavita from Kalpana Photography said she had such an amazing time and we The Ringmaster Darko asked her what she thought of her first Goblin Ball.
Kavita! The Goblin Ball was such a hectic night with so much going on, what did you think as a photographer?
This was the first time i have photographed such an event, other than the wintervalk. I was amazed at the costumes, just phenomenal.
Out of the costumes you thought were phenomenal, what grabbed your attention?
I have to say it was the 2 ladies who used face paint and stencils to create intricate patterns on themselves. It was very creative and had and elegant look about them. Very fitting for the Goblin Ball.
The Goblin Ball had so many areas for you to explore. Where did you get your favorite photograph and who was it of?
Well my favourite has to be from the red room, i captured i couple just having a moment together. The gentleman was was just playing with he's partners hands, while she was just looking at him. It was adorable to see, so happy i captured that moment.
That is one amazing photo! What is your favorite part of photography? You know how to capture some amazing moments.
I love getting out there and meeting new people, going to new events and discovering new places. I love all aspects of photography, from planning a shoot, to creating the finish product. But most of all, i like seeing how my technique is evolving, I'm continuously pushing myself, putting myself in different situations and trying different techniques to create my unique style.
Do you think you will make it to the next Goblin Ball, The Power of Voodoo?
Id love to come to the next Goblin Ball. i can only see it getting bigger and better. Ive already started looking ideas for my costume, and a few people i know want to come along too!

These Portraits were done by Bonbon. A very humble and amazing artist who uses pen, paint and paper.
Bonbon doesn't have any artist page for us to refer onward and is a solitary artist so we are more than humbled and amazed for her to send these through to us.
The Images are (c) Bonbon Click for Higher Res!
These amazing portraits are created by Dezmin Luafeyson. They are so amazing and would make phenomenal Tarot Cards - we think!
Dezmin has created an amazing series drawing back to Art Deco inspired poster art - the movement and the flourishes are phenomenal.
You can find more of his work at Deviantart and look through the amazing photos online!
