WHATEVER TO WEAR??  Dress up for The Edwardian Ball, but have no fear, there is simply no “right” way! There are so many ways you can dress up – nearly anything goes! Any effort is encouraged and appreciated. Some popular themes include the Edwardian Era (early 1900s – think corsets & petticoats for the girls, top hats & vests for the boys), Edward Gorey characters (eccentric & spanning many decades, as you can see in his artwork), Tim Burton-sque (dark, humorous, eccentric), Goth, Steampunk, or just simply “dressed up for an elegant night on the town!” Our photo gallery will give you an amazing assortment of ideas and this Resource Page offers many places to purchase or rent “Edwardian” clothing. And don’t forget, we have our famous Vendor Bazaar open both nights of the event, plus daytime shopping hours on Saturday the 17th (noon-5pm) where you can pick up that last-minute perfect costume or accessory. And remember, this event is all ages, so have fun dressing as a group or family!
