To say the action on stage at the recent Crystal Ball 3.0, a ballroom event by Singapore’s Vogue In Progress collective, was dramatic would be an understatement. Dips, voguing, twirls, over-the-top costume reveals, uninhibited campiness, and even ludicrously named but fun themes (‘Ease Coast Plan’ for a swimsuit category, anyone?) — the event was a whirlwind of extravagance. Just ask dancer, model, and content creator Dineaish Rajendran, who participated in two categories that night. In this video diary, Dineaish, who nabbed the European Runway trophy, grants us exclusive backstage access to the electrifying night.
