A Labyrinthine Masquerade

by angeliska on February 8, 2012

I’m still reeling from the magic of our Labyrinthine Masquerade Ball. My goal of recreating
the ballroom scene from Labyrinth was realized, not only for me, but also for the scads of
costumed revelers that braved stormy weather to come pack the dance floor all night. My
friend Patrick Halferty warmed my cockles when he wrote this on our event page:
“I feel I can no longer watch that movie because nothing would compare with seeing
a sea of people before a backdrop of the ballroom scene, as though the movie itself
had poured out into the Swan Dive.”
So sweet! I hope he will watch the film again,
though! I loved doing this event so much, I may have to make it an annual ball!

This photo and the next are both by Jim Jochetz. The rest are my own.

The belle of the ball, Monika – with the gorgeous Mlle. Asen…

…and with the Junk Lady!

I covet this sweet girl’s crimson ballgown…

A fiery!

How you turn my world
You precious thing.
You starve and near exhaust me.

Everything I’ve done,
I’ve done for you.
I move the stars for no one.

You’ve run so long.
You’ve run so far.
Your eyes can be so cruel,
Just as I can be so cruel,
Oh I do believe in you.
Yes I do.

Live without the sunlight.
Love without your heartbeat.

The lovely Candice.

Johna + Asen – bewitching!

Oh, Callisto..

My Lau!

Beware of beasts in the ballroom…

Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered…

I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City

…to take back the child that you have stolen..

…for my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great….


Lovely photos! Thanks for posting!
