I’m still reeling from the magic of our Labyrinthine Masquerade Ball. My goal of recreating
the ballroom scene from Labyrinth was realized, not only for me, but also for the scads of
costumed revelers that braved stormy weather to come pack the dance floor all night. My
friend Patrick Halferty warmed my cockles when he wrote this on our event page:
“I feel I can no longer watch that movie because nothing would compare with seeing
a sea of people before a backdrop of the ballroom scene, as though the movie itself
had poured out into the Swan Dive.” So sweet! I hope he will watch the film again,
though! I loved doing this event so much, I may have to make it an annual ball!
