Halloween & Steampunk Costume Ideas from the Labyrinth Masquerade Ball 2012

The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball is a great event that is held at the Park Plaza Hotel in Los

Angeles in July. The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade ball provides costumed guests with the opportunity to take part in the

story line with the Labyrinth masked characters.
The Park Plaza Hotel is a great location for the LOJ ball, as it provides several different

rooms that afford different themes.

There are two ballrooms on the bottom floor and two ballrooms on the upper floor,

which are connected by a wide staircase.  There is also an outdoor ballroom space which is great for those who enjoy an outdoor venue.  Also,  the folks at the LOJ ball turned the parking area behind the hotel into an outdoor picnic area with entertainment and food vendors.
Looking down the Central Staircase
Each year the ball has a slightly different theme that follows a particular story line.

The masked  characters roam from room to room to interact with the guests and

maintain their story line.

All the guests are required to either wear a costume or be in formal dress with a mask.

The theme for this year was a celebration of the "Royal Court of Sypher".  The story line was

unravelled throughout the venue.  Each room had it own theme

and entertainment.

Weaving a magical atmosphere for all to enjoy.

I held off posting pictures of this event in July, so that I could post them in October instead.

I love Halloween, and at this time of year, most folks are planning their costumes for the various

holiday parties and events that take place this time of year.

So here a pictures from the ball to entertain and inspire.

If wearing a mask is a bit of a bother, I found a great video on YouTube on Fablesinfashion's channel for a black lace mask makeup tutorial.
