Sky Claudette Soto and Vlad Zee Dragan, also known as fire performance artists Eros Fyre, are central figures in the dark underground of NYC late night life, and undeath. Vlad was a regular feature at New York City vampire and Goth nights as a resident Tarot reader. Sky burned stages and magazine pages as a model and a recognizable face of many Goth and vampire-themed evenings in city clubs. Together they formed a unified front for the sanguine community.

As influential as they are, there is no financial security in the world of independent performance art. At the moment, the incendiary performers’ medical expenses exceed what they pull in from their shows. Sky was hit with a bronchial infection that is burning a black hole through the savings the performance art couple. The fiery couple’s dog Prometheus requires medical attention that is costly, but necessary. Vlad and Sky took to Gofundme to bridge the gap.

The page is called “Help Our Rottweiler Prometheus.”

“Hello everyone so earlier today our Rottweiler Prometheus was diagnosed with Bladder Stones , this is a very serious matter and is very costly to get the needed Surgery done , he doesn’t have much time left and we just don’t have the necessary Funds at this time , please don’t let our Big Boy die , he’s too young everything would help only you can help to save him , Bless you all …

“Thank You and may your Holidays be Blessed.”

Sky was the cover girl and featured model in Gothic Vampire & Alternative Female Beauty, a book of photographs by Swav Jusis. Her modeling has seen her grace magazines throughout the states, Europe, Japan and Latin America. She has been featured in magazines such as Time Out NY, Cosmopolitan, New York Magazine, Chronogram Magazine, the Woodstock Time Newspaper, Sundays NY Post, the Village Voice, Italian Max, Steppin’ Out Magazine and The Star Ledger and she has appeared on such media as Channel 11 and Channel 4, Swiss TV, Bravo TV and Fuse TV, where she appeared several times, including dancing on Pants Off/Dance Off, before combusting into her latest entertainment fusion.
