The Edwardian Ball is noi in honor of King Edward VII but rather inspired by the art and writings of Edward Gorey. The event started in costume-crazed San Francisco, where it runs for three days, and is making its L.A. debut. I will be coming as one of Gorey's many pseudonyms, Madame Goreda Weyrd, Performers and show-offs include Cirque berzerk, Rosin Coven, Vau De Vire Society, Helios Jibe. Yes, there will be an absinthe bar, plus a portrait studio, ballroom dancing and much more.
