Finally! We have posted up new images, videos, and journals from the infamous BowieNet Ball, held in New York City back in late May, 1999.
The Ball was the brainchild of several hardcore BowieNet chatters who wanted to meet "in the flesh." The hostess of the Ball, Leezacan be seen here explaining how the ball came to be.
More videos will be posted in the coming weeks.
Where did the videos come from? If you remember back last month, ZDTV did a special 3 part series on Bowie. Part of the ZDTV piece was made up of member interviews taken at the Ball.
