Hawkins, Indiana. 1983. A little boy is missing. Help us find Will: is he in the forest? Hiding in his secret cabin? Is that him calling? What is making those lights blink?
We're transforming a Bushwick warehouse into an immersive environment directly inspired by Netflix' horror hit "Stranger Things." Enter the upside down...if you dare. Get lost in the forest (by artist Sara Jane Munford). Face off with a mind-reading government agent (Nelson Lugo). Chill in the blanket fort. Eat all the Eggos. Join a seance to find the missing kids (Tarot readings with Marcy Currier). Indulge in handcrafted absinthe (House of St Eve) and specially themed drinks. All the while, our DJs will keep the beat going to keep you dancing into the morning.
Costumes required for entry:
This is our annual love letter to all things dark and grotesque. Dark + 1980s suggestions for Stranger Things: creepy forest creatures, aliens, Jason, ET, Chucky. Usual Masquerade Macabre style welcome: dark carnival, aberrations of nature, cabinet of curiosities, dark Victoriana, evil funhouse, steampunk, Jan Svankmaier & Brothers Quay films, Freaks, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Yes, all manner of Halloween costumes are welcome as well...but please remember: if we have to ask, it's not a costume (meaning: 1980s casual trying to be a Stranger Things kid won't cut it).

*All ticket tiers offer the same access to the event. An additional $25 gets you a commemorative Masquerade Macabre hip flask engraved with the monster hybrid Victorian couple from our usual event flyer. The engraving is vintage-style blind etching, not the modern black laser. We like it classy. Flask pic: http://bit.ly/GS_flask
