As some of you may know the month of July is quite a busy month for us at the society. Nipping at our heels is the 13th Annual Labyrinth of Jareth. Court will be held within the glorious Los Angeles Park Plaza on July 16th and 17th. The Labyrinth of Jareth is a masquerade ball based upon venetian history, celtic faerie, and goblin lore. Amazing artists, costumers, and special effects crews near and far attend the celebration and bring the night alive each year as creatures of legend and fantasy roam the hollowed halls of the labyrinth. The wonderful artists of Sypher Studios work tirelessly each year to bring to us an evening to remember. Mad Calamity Photos and the Manticore Society shall be in attendance this year chronicling the events of the evening.
On Thursday the Darius Exposition a free opening event for attendees of the Labyrinth Masquerade will be held at the Edison downtown. Whilst the Goblin Clockworks prepare to whirl and turn, Sir Darius calls together some of the most innovative entertainers, inventors, and creative minds to host a singular night of intrigue and invention. Before the Labyrinth Masquerade opens its doors. This special engagement is 21+ only.
