Worried about what to wear?
Sometimes we hear people say they'd love to attend but don't have an impressive enough outfit to wear. Good news, there is no "right" way to outfit yourself, no "correct" era, style, or design. What is important is your enjoyment and participation in this immersive event apart from reality. That means you need only dress up in a way that is fun, comfortable, and fitting for you! The key is that you feel like you are dressing for a special night, not just an everyday experience.
For some, this may be an elaborate, fantasy or historical costume, head-to-toe with detail. For some, it just means a playful hat or that lovely pair of boots you've been saving for an occasion. Or you can pull out your favorite Mardi Gras ball formal from the closet. If you feel inspired, add wings or a headpiece.
What do YOU want to wear to the Faery Queen's ball in the Faery Realm and fills your heart with joy?
Don't let fashion keep you from enjoying and being part of The Faery Court Masquerade Ball events. Just dress up to have fun, and come inspire (and be inspired!) by those around you and help raise money for local non-profits!
Everyone is beautiful!
Just be a little EXTRA!
What dream do you want to make a reality?
Between the sea and the land,
