Mambos, Mysteries and Masquerades

Get your costumes out and welcome the dancing season in style with these fantastic masqued balls this autumn:

The Film Fatale Swinging Sixties Vintage Party | October 18 | Sugar Club

This 1960s-themed Mad Men-esque party will celebrate the fashion and music of one of the greatest decades. The night starts with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, for which guests on the night must sign this disclaimer: “People with a weak disposition will be tied to their seats and have their eyes clamped open to ensure they don’t miss a single second of suspense and horror.“

The Shapeshifters’ Ball | October 25 | Irish Museum of Modern Art

This new, darktastic offering from the good people behind Body & Soul is “an intimate, slightly twisted evening of immortal proportions with gothic tails, dark veils and twisted tales.” Arrive in costume and be prepared for anything!

Film Fatale Prohibition Halloween Party | October 31 | Royal Hospital Kilmainham

Come in your finest vintage and “party like it’s 1929” at this year’s Gatsby-style dance party in the atmospheric grounds of the RHK. Brush up on your Charleston and get your tickets before they sell out.

Dublin Burlesque Festival | November 6-10 | Dublin City Centre venues

The festival returns this year with an even bigger array of events such as: Circus Macabre, Vintage Fashion Show, Afternoon Tea, Speakeasy, etc. Click here for tickets.

Get your costumes right (see pictures above) and watch these films before you attempt any dance moves:

The Great Gatsby 1974 or 2013Burlesque | Cabaret | Dracula | Chicago

Good luck and …
