This October 22nd Welcome the wonder of fall and the coming of All Hallows Eve with the Dorian's Parlor Grand October Ball.
http://www.doriansparlor.com/

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.

THIS IS A 21+ EVENT

$25 gets you admission, a drink ticket, and Hors D'oeuvres.

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.
