Everything gets more fun in the dark. The partiers with Bedlam know this too well, so they revisited their black light party WackedOut BlackOut on Saturday to see things in a different light.

Wearing very little or at least clothes with little care in order to take advantage of the glow-in-the-dark body paint being passed around, the no holds barred party people descended on My Sister’s Room to turn down the lights and get messy. If they didn’t show up ready for their black light close up, they contented themselves smudging it all over themselves to take the “You are the canvas” mantra to heart.

Just like the last one, all that was left for WackedOut BlackOut was the writhing, which guests had no problem doing to the beat of DJ Shane V. The evening also included a performance by queen of queens Gigi Monroe, who stopped back here at home in Atlanta during her U.S. tour to make her Bedlam debut performance.

Not familiar with the monthly Bedlam parties? Get an eyeful of their Queers, Cheers & Champs, High Fructose Corn Syrup and Seven Sinners Sinning.

Next up for Bedlam is Fairy Dreams, Scheming Queens (… & Magic Beans) on Feb. 10.
