Dances of Vice Neptune Ball

Taking another trip under the sea! The latest extravagant soiree by Dances of Vice celebrated all things nautical.
The party was hosted at the historic India House Foundation near the South Street Seaport Saturday night. 

The crowd arrived at the Neptune Ball in all manner of mermaids and sailors. There were plenty of elegant ship captains. Many of the costumes were accented by twinkling LED lights and El wire to add some glow. My Husband and another Captain Nemo both evoked Steampunk style with their electric charged fashion accessories. Formal wear was paired with clever, deceptively simple sea creatures like this sparkly anglerfish.

The historic India House was the perfect venue for the theme. Ancient maps and iconic ship models decorated the interiors. Harps and opera singers provided romantic cruising music on the second floor while the third floor hosted scantily clad burlesque dancers, sword swallowers, and mermaids.

This is the same sexy crowd that made the Venetian Valentine Masquerade Ball such a treat to attend. I love that all of the guests know to bring creativity and elegance to their attire.

I love that this type of themed event attracts guests of all demographics. I saw guests of all ages, shapes, identities and cultures having a swimming time. Everyone feels included, united by their love of dress-up. A lavish soiree like this allows all of us to escape the ugliness of the real world. It's a small reminder that yes, creative nightlife still does exist in New York City.

Who would you be in the undersea world? Captain? Pirate? Fish or Mermaid at the Neptune Ball? Dances of Vice will host their next event in June.
