Good day on this cloudy Thursday.
A new event is bringing high fashion — and sex appeal — to downtown Lansing.
Project Boudoir, Lansing’s first lingerie design competition, is giving 20 local fashion designers the opportunity to see their designs in a live runway show. The event is hosted by the Runway, a fashion design incubator located inside the renovated Knapp’s Centre in downtown Lansing.
Categories include traditional and plus-size lingerie, and the winning competitor will earn a free photo shoot, free access to services at the Runway and the chance to sell a product line at Old Town’s Curvaceous Lingerie. Attendees must be 18 or older. A cash bar is available, admission includes one free drink.
6 p.m. $10/$5 students. The Runway, 300 S. Washington Square, Lansing. projectboudoirlansing.com.
Ever wondered what would it be like to have a vampire roommate? Filmmakers Tara Alexander and Dan Kofoed set out to answer that question with their film, "The Third Day," which premieres at the Robin Theatre tonight.
The 20-minute film takes place over three days and centers around two roommates, one of whom was bitten by a vampire at a party. The event features a Q&A session with the producers, as well as snacks and other surprises. The film contains violence and adult language, so leave the kids at home for this one.
7:30 p.m. $5 suggested donation. The Robin Theatre, 1105 S. Washington Ave., Lansing. therobintheatre.com.
