I went to the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball last night and really enjoyed it!
I went in my Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Belle yellow ballgown (Broadway style). I actually hadn’t had a chance to wear this other than the photoshoot I did with my friend Annie over a year ago, so it was really fun to wear it in such a perfect venue. It seemed like a particularly good costume year which is my favorite part. I just love walking around and looking at everyones’ gorgeous costumes. I had a nutella and banana crepe at midnight. There were wonderful performances on multiple stages. A ton of my friends went, too, so I had a lovely time on all accounts.
There were actually at least 4 or 5 gorgeous versions of Belle there that evening! I was thrilled! (Me on the far right.) The Belle on the far left had met Susan Egan (the original Broadway Belle actress and the voice of Megara) so we had a fun conversation! The girl second from the left is the lovely “Evening Arwen” in her Once Upon a Time Belle. She’s also made an awesome Once Rumplestiltskin.
My friend Michelle in her gorgeous Rococo Chibi Moon (from Sailor Moon) costume! She made the dress and wig! She modified a Baby, the Stars Shine Bright choker and added a Kumacraft Sailor Moon necklace. SO PRETTY.
Another gorgeous Sailor Moon costume! Katie Mitchell (left) as Princess Serenity.
My friends Sheyne and Glenn and their friends came in a group as “Rococo Punk” which I think is just a fabulously fun idea. I wish I’d had time to do a Rococo Punk jacket and join them! Yum!
Me and Claire Hummel in her Rococo Punk! I love Claire’s art. She did those charming Historical Disney Princesses!
I LOVE these lovely Rococo Punk ladies! The one on the left had marvelously intentionally unfinished hems and edges.

Oh my gosh! It’s a Claudia from Interview with a Vampire! She was having a blast!

More Rococo Punk!
This guy was really excited that I knew he was Quetzalcoatl.

My photo does not do this couple justice.
My friend Glenn in his Rococo Punk and his friend with a hookah! Glenn looks so dramatic in this photo, but really he’s a perfect gentleman who walked me to my car so I wouldn’t feel nervous walking alone at 2 am in giant ballgown.
My friend Chantal in her beautiful 18th century gown!
