Whoa! This Event Looks Intense

I was just cruising around Yahoo Events, when I came upon the uber-intense looking SMB-XII DC’s 13th Annual Summer Masquerade Ball.  Seriously, I’m kinda freaked out/intrigued by the “Angels & Demons” theme, the creepy airbrushed images and the idea of spending part of my evening in one of the themed section called “Hell” that features freak show performers and fire spinners in a secret chamber. Better lay off the absinthe filled, smoking goblets.

Unfortunately, I’ll be out of town this Friday on a long ago scheduled vacation, and unable to attend, but I’d love to hear all about it.  Have you been to the 12! other balls?  If so, what were their themes?  What kind of people attend?

  1. The balls are a lot of fun! Fascinating people-watching, crazy costumes, goth/industrial/fetish crowd (mostly but open to all, it’s a very accepting scene), bands/djs/bellydancers/fire performers, the works.

    Kind of like Mardi Gras in August.
