the hiphop kiki ball
by gigi and silva angels
Time: 18 to 23
Location: Vega Scene
Welcome to The Hip-Hop Kiki Ball presented by The Swedish Mother Silva Angels and Gigi Sunshine Angles.
Ballroom and Hip-Hop culture have inspired generations of people to no longer accept inequalities and injustices centered on race, religion, sexual orientation and gender. They allow individuals to explore their creativity and unite as a whole collective.
We would like to invite you to celebrate both of these cultures in one place at the same time. Maybe by meeting one another we can continue to inspire and learn the differences and similarities within these rich cultures together.
If you’re not a person of color and/or person om queer experience, we would like to reinstate that you are a guest within the ballroom community and should follow rules as everyone else. Please be mindful of the space you take as a guest, and you will be welcomed with open arms

FF Realness & MF Realness
The 80’s were a time of innovation, as Hip-Hop artists developed not only their sound but the culture as well. The street style was huge with chunky gold jewelry, athletic wear and footwear, and an array of colorful jackets and sweaters. You can also almost immediately identify this era by hairdos.
Come inspired by the 80’s Hip-Hop fashion.
Kris Kross was an American Hip-Hop duo that consisted of Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly and Chris "Daddy Mac" Smith. Kris Kross was the youngest Hip-Hop duo to gain success, with platinum albums and achieved worldwide status with their smash hit debut single, “Jump”.
Kris Kross was known for wearing their pants backwards.
Now it’s your turn to serve your walk, with your effect turned backwards!
Face with a twist (For pierced and tattooed face)
Animal fur is one of the most expensive apparel fabrics in the world, and for centuries it’s been viewed as a symbol of elegance. With a taste for all luxury things, celebrities have been using fur as a status symbol for decades. From fox to chinchilla to mink, these references in songs boomed in the 2000s and that’s when Hip-Hop really started to embrace fur.
Serve the runway with your elegant fur inspired look. (Preferably NO real animal fur!)
The roots of Hip-Hop can be traced back to the night of August 11, 1973, when DJ Kool Herc and his sister Cindy Campbell hosted a block party in the Bronx, New York, the first of many jams that birthed the first sounds and the earliest pioneers of Hip-Hop culture. The culture started out as B-girls and B-boys, meaning that they listened to the breakbeats of DJs like Kool Herc who would play certain parts of the breakbeats.
Tonight, bring it back and serve the floor like a break dancer.
Missy Elliot is the definition of icon when it comes to her music and fashion. Tonight, show us your five elements in a denim look, as Missy has shown us from time to time.
The first major hip hop deejay was DJ Kool Herc. Mixing percussive beats with popular dance songs, Kool Herc was instrumental in developing the sounds that became synonymous with Hip-Hop, such as drum beats and record scratches.
Show us your controlled arms to a 90’s Hip-Hop beat.
Female Figure Performance
As Hip-Hop made its mark in mainstream culture in the 1980s, women had to battle for recognition in a male-dominated industry. Rap music became even more mainstream in the 2000s, but female artists struggled to get recognition as record executives signed less women. It’s time to bring the ladies out.
Tonight, bring it inspired as any female rapper! Picture mandatory.
All American Runway
In the early 2000’s Hip-Hop became colorful with rappers like Camron making statements in pink clothing. Something rappers from previous decades wouldn’t be caught in. Clothing was extremely street based at the time with baggy jeans and t-shirts, basketball jerseys, fitted caps/bucket hats and fresh kicks being sported.
Serve your street wear look with a touch of pink.
Lauryn Hill introduced the aspect of the multi-functioning female artist within Hip-Hop. Writing, producing, rhyming, singing. According to Da Brat, Hill’s
sound shifted the whole game. Back then, Lauryn Hill won five Grammys, a new record for a female singer in a single award ceremony on February 24th in 1999.
Tonight, bring it to the runway in a black and gold fashionable effect and be the grand prize!
Hip-hop fashion, with its brazen attitude, made it possible for you to wear and do what you want. Although Hip-Hop undoubtedly finds its roots in street life and in some ways, despite its contrast to disco, certain aspects of disco influenced it.
Show us your grace and perfect lines in a colorful outfit.

One of the elements of Hip-Hop culture is Graffiti. Tonight, is your time to be the graffiti artist and tell us your story. For your 10’s, include an empty spray can.
