PHOTOS: The Legendary Crystal Ball

University of the Arts’ Hamilton Hall was dripping with eleganza and all-around fabulousness Saturday night when Philadelphia Fight hosted the COLOURS Oganization‘s annual Legendary Crystal Ball in conjunction with its monthlong AIDS Education Month events. The evening brings together some of the city’s most ferocious house/ballroom houses to duke it out for the top prize in categories that range from Best Female Figure Face to Best Male Figure Realness and Best Female Figure Sex Siren. It’s the fiercest thing you’ve seen since the last time you watched Paris Is Burning.

For that extra touch of LGBT, the theme for the night was all things Wizard of Oz — from the original movie to The Wiz and Oz the Great and Powerful. Philly Fight was kind enough to send along some photos from the competition. First, bow down, (seriously, you’re not worthy) then check out the amazing action shots in the slideshow below.
