This October 22nd Welcome the wonder of fall and the coming of All Hallows Eve with the Dorian's Parlor Grand October Ball.

Dress to the nines in Dandy, Steampunk, Neo-Victorian, Neo-Vintage, Black Tie, 18 Century, Victorian, ball gowns, and creative attire, and dance the night away.

This is an event worth the travel, as there will be nothing like it elsewhere. Dorian's Parlor is located at the beautiful Doubletree Hotel in Philadelphia right on the corner of Broad and Locust St., 3 blocks south of City Hall. Easily accessible from the Broad Street line and Septa Bus 27 and 32, and a short walk from Suburban Station.

Our MC for the evening is the ever dapper G. D. Falksen http://www.gdfalksen.com/.

Prizes well worth over $500 awarded at midnight for the best dressed lady and gentleman.

So close to All Hallows Eve we would be foolish not to have a grand event to welcome the changing of the seasons.

This October we treat you to a very special and rare fashion show by none other then haute couture designer The Baroness Latex http://www.baroness.com. Yes, the very designer whose work you have seen worn by the likes of Lady Gaga and more. The Baroness's designs will be gracing our runway with fashion like you have never seen before.

A spectacular solo performance from the ever talented Alexx Reed of Thou Shalt Not http://www.thoushalt.net/

Dance the night away with the incredible DJ Dave Ghoul http://DaveGhoul.com/.

And that's not all. We have dozens of one of a kind vendors eager to sell you their great wares, preformers yet to be named (we must keep some surprises!), glorious food and drink, and one of the best DJs out there--DJ Dave Ghoul--spinning song after song to keep you dancing the night away. There will be a vintage style photo booth to capture your evening with our talented photographers. We will have a mountain of door prizes and give aways from such places as Wildside Press,Tor books, Retroscope Fashions, Steampunk Tales and many more, all just for you.

From Tor Books we will have debut author Lev AC Rosen entertaining you with readings from his recently released novel "All Men of Genius". Added to our prize baskets for best dressed will be a bevy of wonderful Tor books.

Subject:July 16th playbill op
Time:05:00 am
Current Mood:awakeawake
I understand that this is extremely short notice but we were just aloud to publish something with in the playbill that makes it worth seeing who would wish to be part of it as well.


July 16th in Philadelphia Dorian's Parlor One Year Anniversary
Event info and RSVP here : http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=117135848365529&ref=ts

I am certain you are all aware that this July 16th in Philadelphia the one year anniversary of Dorian's Parlor One Year Anniversary is talking place.

We have been extremely fortunate and privileged via Wildside Press to be aloud to publish exclusively the prologue and first chapter to the debut novel of G.D Falksen's The Hellfire Chronicles: Blood In The Skies. This means the playbill we are publishing and handing out for free to more than the 500+ attendees at our great event will include not only full color playbill of all the entertainment, performers and vendors of the event but also a preview of a book just out this July. Due to this special collector's item we now feel it is appropriate to open our playbill up for you to place your advertisements within its pages. But due to time constraints with the event we are only open to all ad slots for the next 24 hours from now, until 6am Tuesday EST. So please if you wish be part of this ever growing fantastic night now is your change to have your ad within the pages of our collectable playbill with exclusive printed material.

I would love for the playbill to be full of nothing but ads for the fantastic fashion and accessory stores and such I see post here all the time.

The details you need to knowCollapse )

It should also be noted that during the event we are having quite a large amount of press and media filming for documentaries and a number of other things so it is a chance to have your promotional material seen by members of the press and TV as well.

If you wish to jump on this short lived opportunity please email for ASAP info : apramagioulis@gmail.com

Thank you and I hope you come if you can. It's really becoming something special beyond the magic we do monthly at Dorian's Parlor.

Hey everyone. I have a question. I'm pretty sure Gorey had one story about a man and a women who killed kids, but ended up in jail at the end. My professor that I told doesn't believe me, but I'm pretty sure it exists. I just can't remember the name of it, or which book it was in because I read it years ago :/ Does anyone remember it? Thanks a lot.

A heads-up for those of you who may be interested - I noticed recently that Gorey's versions of Edward Lear's The Jumblies and The Dong with a Luminous Nose are coming back in print. They're published by Pomegranate and scheduled for March 2010.

More information and previews:

The Jumblies

The Dong with a Luminous Nose

Also, Bloomsbury has reprinted The Recently Deflowered Girl, no doubt occasioned by the interest the scans that made the rounds earlier this year stirred up.
