Masquerade themed events help bring out the sexual sensation that most themes do not. Ladies disguise themselves under masks, laced with veils and velvet exposing anything else besides their face. Gentlemen in black tie also masking their identities. If done correctly, this theme can be extraordinary!
Masquerades need to be strict dress code in order to create the best atmosphere. An event I attended was Secret Brunch around Halloween time a few years ago down in London. Theme for this day time brunch extravaganza was to conceal your face, lace, velvet and to wear a cape. Anyone not dressed the part, was not able to come in. This exclusive party not only strict on their dress code, they also were strict on who was invited.
