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.

 

Naughty or Nice at the Right Price!

The facts, and simply the facts are what we need to help you get a good fit on the perfect gift. For womenswear (including feminine gender expression styles and corsets): The key sizes needed are US dress size and US shoe size to box up awesome cocktail party couture or after hours minimalist fantasy. For menswear (including masculine gender expression styles and chest harnesses)  : The key knowledge needed to help you find a good fit is US Pant size (in inches) and US Unisex T-shirt Size (XS-6X) and Shoe Size. If you give us these numbers, we can help you choose a great outfit that should be a decent fit! What’s more, we will box it up and give you a bow to present with your package and provie a gift receipt so any imperfect sizing issues can be fixed before the end of the year.

Not sure what to get? We have great gifts to fit every budget, and we have separated these items into Nice (gifts you can give family members or workmates) and Naughty (for special eyes only).

Let’s start with Nice gifts (in case you thought you would have to go to the mall for fashionable accents)

Nice and affordable (Under $50)

Nice Investments For Her: The vast majority of our current  corsets  fall in the under $200 pice range, but so do our wigs if there is a cosplayer on your list who wants stylable hair in imaginitive color combinations. RockStar wigs also donates a wig for each of their wigs that sells so you can truly give a gift that keeps giving.

Posted in Community, Corset Corner, Costume Carnival, Criminal Accessories, Events, Fantasic Femme Fashion, Footwear Fetish, Gift Guides, Men's Style, Miscellaneous, PASSIONAL Persona: Photo Contest, Rubber Lover, Transform Yourself on November 12, 2016 by Kali Morgan

Philadelphia fast forwards to the erotic future for Diabolique Ball 20: FUTUROTICA Saturday, Nov. 19th 8pm to 1am Voyeur Nightclub. 

Native and alien species will swarm to Voyeur Nightclub in Philly’s colorful Gayborhood on November 19th to be bad for a good cause, as they have for every year for twenty years.

dia20teasersm

This year, FUTUROTICA brings to life dreams of a glossy sexy future of sensual streaming of cybernetic fantasies, electronic erotica and hybrid human and engineered mechanical life. FUTUROTICA invites beings and peoples of all pervsuasions to indulge in an erotic utopia where all are welcome to enjoy the naughty possibilities that the future holds: voyeuristic views, decadent dancing, lascivious libations, prolific play, creative kinky costuming and exotic entertainment. In all corners of the omniverse the mission is unified: raising fun and funds for a wicked good cause!

Two decades after Philadelphia’s first Diabolique Ball, this fun-filled fetish masquerade is returning to its traditional date, the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Diabolique Ball has never borne any resemblence to the charity events of former generations.  A cosmic combination of costumed anonymity, sinful soundtracks and mischievous merriment make this event famous for fetishists and voyagers alike.

The future  kicks into high gear with unforgettable performances from Sapphira Cristal, Josh Schonewolf, and Los Angeles based headliner Jewel Marceau. Mid-Atlantic fashionista’s Passional Boutique, Delicious Boutique, and BabyLoves Latex will all showcase their next generation collections on the catwalk. Ball attendees will be able to do the Robot to DJ sets from Totentanz in the Lux Lounge downstairs, and magnetic music of Mighty Mike Saga on the main floors.

2016futurotica-flyer-back

Diabolique’s infamous dungeon will satisfy even the most salacious appetites. Open improvisational interaction is encouraged on equipment provided by The Aviary.  Charity play stations operated by local players and professionals allow guests can try out anything from spankings and tickling to  electrical play and more in exchange for donations to Trans Lifeline charity.

Fashion warriors of the future will enforce the famously strict Diabolique dress code of fetish, fantasy, or formal, but that doesn’t mean that it will be tough to find the perfect outfit. Outer space leather gear, futuristic metallic vinyl or latex, androgynous adornments, LED trimmed cat suits and as much chrome and metallic as you can stand — all of it’s perfect for this scifi-inspired event.

Super cybertronic souls, generous contributors and celebrity guests who desire an additional dose of decadent debauchery can purchase upgraded VIP tickets to the ball that include exclusive access to the VIP balcony lounge seating  til 1am, complimentary hors doeuvres and two hours of open bar from 9pm to 11pm.

Although Diabolique Ball officially ends at 1am, guests are invited to keep their dance going with members of the nightclub at the Exhibitionists After-Party, that will last until Voyeur closes at 3am.

Each year, Diabolique tickets raise thousands of dollars for charities that provide vital services to Philadelphia’s diverse communities: This year’s beneficiary is the Trans Health Information Project of GALAEI.

For complete ticket prices, performer info, guest list, dress codes and rules, etiquette and inspiration, visit the official FUTUROTICA website at www.diaboliquephilly.com.
