What To Wear?

We encourage you to dress up from any time period or place, real... or imagined. Victorian, steampunk, goth, cirque noir, renfaire, and Fae are among the many options for the night. If that doesn’t work then go elegant, formal wear, or leather and lace, or ?. You are a one of the stars of the event and what you wear contributes to the mood for all. Even if you don’t have the time or interest to create or buy fanciful garb, we bet that you have something to wear that makes you look amazing.
