A mass pillow fight – a rocket to Russia..and finally a snow dome: the surreal excitements of Cornwall’s fastest growing home-grown festival were obviously just too much for one particular reveller.
The unknown raver (linked above) was snapped succumbing in epic style to the ravages of last weeks Masked Ball at Porthleven.
