The annual Labyrinth Of Jareth Masquerade was held earlier this month at the Biltmore Hotel in L.A. and there was gorgeous cosplay everywhere. Seriously, this looks like a truly magical experience. From the description:
The Labyrinth of Jareth is a Masquerade Ball based on Venetian tradition, Celtic faerie and goblin lore, and storie of fantasy and wonder. Lost within the borders of chaos and light, nobles dance among the Fae while goblins wait with hungry eyes in the wings of their court. Some of the most amazing fantasy artists, costumers and special effects crews participate in bringing a diverse host of creatures and mythologies alive each year. This Masquerade is one of the few classical events open to ANYONE who has dreamed of a surrealistic fantasy fading into a single night of dance and revelry. Music and visuals heighten your senses as the night shields the Goblin Court and the chambers surrounding it. The artists of Sypher Arts Studio continue to proudly offer this tribute to dreamers and imagination.
Dance and dream amongst the Court of Faerie and the darker edge of goblin realms.
Of course, the main point of a Masquerade is to dress in costume to astonish friends and strangers alike. Be imaginative, revel in the ambiance and detail as the world falls down. . .
Lucky for us, photographer John Truong was there to snap some pictures and capture a little of the magic. Check out some of those pictures below.
