Edwardian Ball 2009

Edwardian Ball 2009


Last Saturday night, a friend and I attended the first ever Edwardian Ball held in Los Angeles! It was an excuse to dress up and get out on a Saturday night! A rare opportunity these days, let me tell you...

The event was full of Edwardian enthusiasts-- from people dressed in historically correct clothes, to costumes, and so on. The performances were more circus-burlesque style with really talented musicians and singers bringing in the noise. It was really neat to see people ballroom dancing on the dance floor as well.

I love the neat hand-drawn decor they had going on too!

We were very entertained by the performances from Cirque Berzerk, and my favorite band was Helios Jive. The drink from the punch bowl at the bars was also delicious. Unfortunately, as it got later, the place got way too crowded! We couldn't even manage to get near the bar! We left a little early and headed to Denny's for some late-night breakfast meals. Overall, it was a good time and I would definitely go again!

Also, if you haven't noticed, I added a little flickr badge on the side menu! Please check it out for photos of all the shenanigans I get into. I promise to post more of my gurly geeky/nerdy activities as I get on with the re-design and revamp of this blog :)

We are self-proclaimed girl-GEEKS who needed a place to write about it! We don't really do anything special with our lives, but we do enjoy the occasional comic book or fantasy film. Also, the occasional pie. With ice cream. Yeah. Ice cream.
