Hosted by the legendary Father Sebastiaan and the Sabretooth Clan, a leading expert on the vampire subculture, ENDLESS NIGHT VAMPIRE BALL events are a series of masquerade ball themed soirees produced by Father Sebastiaan which began in New York City in 1996 with the “Vampyre Ball of New York” and the “Main Gala Event”, the New Orleans Vampire Ball, over Halloween weekend. The name Endless Night comes from the William Blake poem “Auguries of Innocence” in which he states:
“Some are born to Sweet Delight, Others are born to Endless Night.”
In 2010 Endless Night: New Orleans Vampire Ball was rated #1 of the Big Halloween Events in the world by TripAdvisor.com.
“Endless Nights is best described as a Venetian Masquerade Ball and vampire court, mixed with a Vampire Court, the energy of a rock concert and the elegance of a burlesque cabaret.”
What makes the Endless Night most unique is the vampire and masque ball theme touched off with a Belle Epoch salon noir from the esoteric renaissance of 1890s France. Always changing and morphing according to new and diverse interests Endless Nights is purely a unique experience which is unforgettable.
The dress code of the Endless Night Vampire Ball events is the centrepiece of our collective experience. It is a ritual and ceremony we go through each year to make the theme stand out, with the patrons (Nighters) and Krewe working together to create an unforgettable event. The more effort you make the more you will enjoy the event, and the better the energy will be.
Motifs are examples of style and genre, which each individual participant comes with to the Ball. Some examples include:
Circus, Dorian Gray, Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Venetian Carnival, Steampunk, Baroque, Neo-Victorian, Explorer, Vampyre, Metal, Eyes Wide Shut, Latex / Leather (fetishistic), Corsets, Lost Boys / Girls, Tribal Belly Dancer, Mata Hari, La Belle Epoque, Religious, Black Tie, Military (no fascist styles please), Lolita, Modern Primitives, Boudoir, 18th Century, Asian, Medieval / Pagan / Rennie, Drag, Ancient Egyptian, Aztec, Sumarian, Fairy Tale, Cyberpunk, Formal Western, etc.
Basic Minimalist: If you cannot match any of these a simple mask and black suit or dress will do.
PLEASE NO T-shirts, Blue Jeans, Wife Beaters, Racist Symbols, Sportswear, Street Wear, Sneakers, etc.
The Gatekeeper WILL STRICTLY ENFORCE the dress code, and there are no refunds on tickets allowed for those out of dress code.
