Dances of Vice presents The Secret Garden Spring Ball 2011

Drowning in layers of lace, wigs as high as the heavens, sipping tea or a cocktail in a lush floral garden with a gorgeous victorian gown on. Any of this sound appealing to you?

Then come to the Dances of Vice presents The Secret Garden Spring Ball on May 14th 2011

Enjoy a dinner fit for royalty under the Gothic arches and stained glass windows of the stunning refectory hall of the castle to the dulcet sounds of live harpsichord and opera, or enjoy a series of Victorian lawn games in the castle courtyard, followed by a complete Dances of Vice Jazz Age ball.

I've been watching period movies such as The Duchess to become inspired. I only wish I had unlimited talent and budget to recreate such beautiful garments. Guess I should just focus on a tremendous hat or wig. Hmm..

Anyway dust off your corsets and knickers and powder up your wig for this amazing event. These costumers are very serious and strive for authenticity. Check out some pictures here. You will not want to miss.
