Dracula’s Ball

dracula

Goths and industrial music lovers converge on Trocadero for Clan of Xymox, Ego Likeness and Curse Mackey perform at Dracula’s Ball on October 31st, 2018. Our DJs are Amelia Arsenic (formerly of Angelspit) and Danny Red. Tickets are on sale now. This event will sell out; get your tickets as soon as you’re able to.

Dracula’s Ball is all ages to enter, but you must be 21+ with proper ID to enter alcohol service areas. Note that some ticketing sites may indicate the event is “18+” but **it is an all ages party**. The Trocadero Theatre is located at 1003 Arch Street. Doors open at 8pm (1 hour early!) and the event ends at 2am.

Scheduled performance times for bands (Doors open 8pm)
8:50pm Curse Mackey
10:00pm Ego Likeness
11:20pm Clan of Xymox

Tickets are available in person through The Trocadero and Digital Underground (215-925-9259) as well as online through Ticketfly and IsoTank.com
https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1725820
https://www.isotank.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=17856&products_id=59562&zenid=3aot5187cujdb0cdl09126r233

As with last year, we will be *limiting* the number of tickets available to approximately 2/3 of the Trocadero’s normal “sold out” ticket number, so that you’ll have extra space to dance and stroll around. It will be pleasantly crowded, but not uncomfortable.

As this is our Halloween event, costumes are strongly encouraged (although not mandatory). Please use common sense with prop weapons – anything that might pose an actual danger to another patron, including non-functional but realistic-looking replica firearms, may not be permitted by venue security. We’ll have plenty of candy on hand, jack-o-lanterns, decorations, and everything you need to have a stellar Halloween.

Bring your personal photo camera if you like (no video cameras allowed, and no huge pro cameras allowed without advance permission.)

Dracula’s Ball is a Dancing Ferret Concerts event.

See you on Wednesday the 31st!

PEX (The Philadelphia Experiment) 13th Annual Halloween Ball: “A Wrinkle in Time”

pex

On this day November the Second, Two-Thousand and Eighteen:  Some 70 odd years after the end of the War, The Philadelphia Experiment Community gathers on Hallowed ground.

The Battleship New Jersey doesn’t just represent the hopes and prayers of one State, or even OneCountry.

Her survival represented the Future and Freedom of Humankind.

On the WW2 Battleship itself, heroes fell and flags were raised, cries of valor and victory only hoped to weather the storm.

A place where in the end, sailors rejoiced at the possibility of being reunited with family, friends and lovers.

As she sailed back into the safe harbor, crowds of non-combatants gathered along the battered wharf to greet the USS NJ, hoping and longing for a glimpse of a familiar face and the sense of relief that comes with the realization of a day that might never have come.

Truman announced to the crowds gathered:

“This is the day when Fascism finally dies, as we always knew it would.”

Life magazine stated it was “as if joy had been rationed and saved up for three years, eight months and seven days.”

Celebrations were simultaneously held across the world, from New York’s Time Square to Sydney inAustralia.

So come join the PEX community as we gather once again aboard the Vessel that has served us all so well.

Join us to celebrate the joy of victory realized, of reunification with family and lovers, and step through the wrinkle in time with us.

We will see you there… somewhere….around November 2nd 1945.

And so it is:

PEX H a l l o w e e n B a l l  #13 :: A Wrinkle in Time

Friday November 2, 2018
aboard the Battleship New Jersey

9pm – 3am
21+

Diabolique Ball 21: A Magical, Mythological Style Guide

Posted in Charity begins at PASSIONAL, Community, Corset Corner, Costume Carnival, Criminal Accessories, Events, Fantasic Femme Fashion, Footwear Fetish, Gift Guides, Men's Style, Rubber Lover, Transform Yourself on November 10, 2017 by Kali Morgan

Looking to make a grand entrance into the mysterious world of Myths & Mysteries at Diabolique Ball next week? Our PASSIONAL purchasers have put together some fantastical fetish-inspired style options in keeping with this year’s theme. Regardless of which tribe, pack or species of magical of creature you wish to invoke in your quest to be bad for a good cause, here are some style inspirations:

loock_11

Deities and Demons. As you enter the mysterious mists next Saturday, remember that you are not going to church- at least not in a typical sense. You will enter a world where supernatural archetypes are invoked for the purpose of celebrating and enhancing the enchantments of carnal pleasures! Many pantheons of supernatural superheroes and supervillains have parts to play in this passion play. Both feminine and masculine versions of these archetypes have not only roles in battles of good vs. evil, but are flanked by armies of colorful creatures who aid them in their endeavors.

Masculine: Fetish Harnesses and Warrior Kilts

 
Feminine: Goddess or She Devil

Warriors. From legendary Amazon fighters to Spartan soldiers to any human archetype that wields weapons to protect their spirit-tribes, a warrior can take the shape of an active fighter or a behind spiritual spellcaster that provides protection through indirect means.  Whether your weapons are a spellbook or a sword, check out these looks.

Masculine Kilts or Feminine Kilts and Armor

Mischievous magical humanoids. Fairy princess, Elven King or Queen, gnome or forest sprite, there are myriad magical folk that posess mostly human features from demigods to djinns from wish-fulfilling genies to jokesters who would turn a human head into an ass. For the chaotic neutral invocation, try these styles:

Hybrid human and animal species. Many are familiar with Greco-Roman renditions of creatures that share human bodies with the heads or legs of horses and goats and fish, such as Cantaurs, Minotaurs , Fauns and mer people- but these options merely scratch the surface of the possibilities from multiple cultures. Winged creatures and bird with human heads, reptilian features and even insect characteristics are yours to incorporate into your dream character:

Bestial Guardians. From mythical horses with wings or a horn to all manner of muti-headed guard dog breeds the supernatural world inspires a surfeit of spectacular nonhuman creatures whose features and gifts are not human in nature. Gargoyles, seraphim, hell hounds, Pegasus, unicorn sand other creatures from cruel to cuddlesome create a charismatic realm of playful possiblities.

Debauchery in the Details
All purpose dramatic Cosplay Accessories will add the extra elemental enigma to any look from glowing eyes to glowing hair and masks.

 

Looking to Howl this Week?

Posted in Costume Carnival, Fantasic Femme Fashion, Footwear Fetish, Men's Style, Transform Yourself on October 27, 2017 by Kali Morgan

Tis the season to GET DRESSED UP. 

Yet here are so many parties, and so little time! Alas, sadly, some of the best local parties in Philadelphia  sold out in advance, like Friday’s Draculas Ball  and Saturday’s PEX Halloween Ball (Facebook pages for both events found folks selling tickets up intil the gates opened though) .

 

Nonetheless there were several fabulous parties that you can still attend last minute including Friday’s Mischief at the Mutter museum party where costumed crusaders got their dance on in the midst of Philly’s famous collection of medical oddities as well Friday ‘s Drag Me To Landmark charity event hosted by local queens and performers who  followed up on Saturday with the annual HallowQweens bash.

Back 2 Badics a queer party with righteous music and costume contests galore, hosted their Mischief and Mayhem revival at Cibo Italiano on Saturday.

 

But for Philly’s hardcore Halloweeners, the one traditional party for grownups always happens on October 31, when local icon and jeweler Henri David hosts his annual celebrity studded celebration of exhibitionist camp on its annual October 31 date, with PASSIONAL Proprietrix Kali Morgan sitting in as a celebrity judge Tuesday night at the Henri David Ball

So whether staying home and scaring chidren, strutting your goods out in public or staying inside for your own erotic theater is what makes your autumnal timebomb tick, make sure to get all your skulls, spikes and more at PASSIONAL.

If you are one of the folks who will not actively dress up this week due to work or other commitments, don’t fret. Diabolique Ball is coming up on November 18 and PASSIONAL will buy you a FREE ticket if you spend $500 in store!
