Masquerade Labyrinth Ball

Since I moved to Los Angeles, I've been meaning to go to the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade  Ball. Every year I forgot to buy tickets until it was too late, and it was sold out. Not this year, by golly.

I've got my tickets. For both nights! Great excuse to dress up fancy and whatnot. I know it looks stupendously fabulous, but other than strutting around looking fabulous, I wonder what people really do? That's sort of the curse of the goth club... everyone spends a ton of time looking the look, but when you actually get there, it's sort of unfriendly, cliquish and ...well....boring! Is this just a jumped-up, super-mega goth night? There are live acts, but I have no  idea of they're any good or not.

Anyway, at least I can say I finally got to the silly thing!

Well, judging from the pictures on the webpage, that surely beats any goth clu b I've ever been to.

Cliqueish appears to go with goth these days; I haven't found a way around it so far.

Still. May I confess myself Very Envious Indeed.

But where is David Bowie, hmmm?

What, no Bowie?!?

the kid who organizes it is was the kid who was Toby in the movie, you see. But now he's all grown up.

Ah, now all is made clear. Obviously, grooving with the goblins in the "Dance, Baby Dance" scene DID have an impact on him, lol.

I went a few years back, it was pretty fun.
Not sure if I'd call it "goth" tho they did represent. Lots of larpers and other costume geekery abounded, even a drum circle on the roof. :D

Don't think I'll make this year since I'm living in the Bay.

Sounds sexy!

If its cliquey, my advice is get a few drinks and just be super friendly with everyone.
