    I went to one in a hotel before xmas. Everyone wore black tie and a mask. You can get them from fancy dress shops/ the internet.

    Well it isn't confirmed yet so still a 'half plan'. Just want to get ahead. Am googling as well but wanted some ideas.

    A swallow-tail suit. A rose at hand. A mask (preferably a mask tha covers just the eyes and nose.)

    You might want a suit and cloak to go with it.

    I once trawled town with a pair of six shooters and a Poncho.

    I also smoke so the small cigar looked good.

    Great time Until you got to the male bogs, then they all want to prove you wrong.

    So not this one, unless you are tough.

    Check out Venetian masks, the Harlequin ones are pretty cool (well as far as masks go) or the ones with the comedy noses always get a laugh.

    Go dressed in only a black tie and a mask :)

    It's GD...so you should wear mustard too, and carry a loaf of Hovis.


    Maybe I should get to bed.

    Originally, the point was for people to relax in (partial) anonymity and behave in a manner that would be at least mildly scandalous otherwise.

    Nowadays, in our society, it's very redundant.

    One of my colleagues went to a masquerade ball and spent a couple of hours talking to 'me'. I wasn't there.
