Get your costumes out and welcome the dancing season in style with these fantastic masqued balls this autumn:

The Film Fatale Swinging Sixties Vintage Party | October 18 | Sugar Club

This 1960s-themed Mad Men-esque party will celebrate the fashion and music of one of the greatest decades. The night starts with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, for which guests on the night must sign this disclaimer: ?People with a weak disposition will be tied to their seats and have their eyes clamped open to ensure they don’t miss a single second of suspense and horror.?

The Shapeshifters? Ball | October 25 | Irish Museum of Modern Art

This new, darktastic offering from the good people behind Body & Soul is ?an?intimate, slightly twisted evening of immortal proportions with gothic tails, dark veils and twisted tales.? Arrive in costume and be prepared for anything!

Film Fatale Prohibition Halloween Party | October 31 | Royal Hospital Kilmainham

Come in your finest vintage and ?party like it’s 1929? at this year’s Gatsby-style dance party in the atmospheric grounds of the RHK. Brush up on your Charleston and get your tickets before they sell out.

Dublin Burlesque Festival | November 6-10 | Dublin City Centre venues

The festival returns this year with an even bigger array of events such as: Circus Macabre, Vintage Fashion Show, Afternoon Tea, Speakeasy, etc. Click here for tickets.

Get your costumes right (see pictures above) and watch these films before you attempt any dance moves:

The Great Gatsby 1974 or 2013 |?Burlesque | Cabaret | Dracula | Chicago

Good luck and ?
