Weekend Recommendations – October 30th, 2014

It’s another Halloween! But are you like many cosplayers and costumers who are ecstatic for the season, but then find themselves in a sort of costume-event paralysis about what to wear, or which of the many parties to choose? How many Halloweens have you just stayed at home and declared that Halloween is “amateur hour” for the rest of society?

Well, there’s a lot going on this weekend, but here are a few of the events at which we’ll either be there, or wish that we could be there . . .

DarkoticaTonight there are several events going on in Cincinnati, but first a look at Columbus, Ohio where the three night event Trauma commences with the theme of “Circus” before moving into “The Ward” tomorrow, and “Masquerade” on Saturday; see the Facebook event page for more details.

Back to Cincinnati, in Over-the-Rhine Japp’s is hosting a Halloween Eve Dance Party, in Northside Mayday is hosting the Horror Prom Dance Party, and down by the river The Dock’s Darkotica goth night holds its Halloween night.

Several core members of The Pandora Society and I shall be at the Dock tonight for the start of what we have dubbed the “night life triathlon extravaganza,” as we shall be also be partying Friday and Saturday as well . . . Sunday morning will herald the “Brunch of Champions” for those who survive this triathlon.

Tomorrow night Cincinnati will offer more Halloween fun such as Neon’s David Bowie: Labyrinth and Silent Disco Halloween partyor across the river the Southgate House Revival’s festive offering is the “Rock’n’Roll Will Save Your Soul” Halloween Show & Costume Contest. Many Michigan Steampunks will be found screaming at The Haunted Hallow 2014, but myself and fellow triathlon partiers shall be in Dayton, Ohio for the last hurrah of the night club Vex before its doors close for good. Our Pandora Society house DJ Nymphoma (part of the triathlon crew) will play pied piper to Vex’s Halloween Night and see that goth night goes out with a party to remember.

It’s the first Saturday of the month, so of course, it’s time for the Cincinnati Steampunk Salon!

For November the Salon will actually be on the second floor of Molly Malone’s for a change; the second floor is a lovely lounge with a distinct Victorian feel to it, and is capable of holding our typical numbers. Music will be provided by DJ Nymphoma, Karen Berlekamp & Seriously Sebastian will be vending vests, bustles, and other clothing, and we shall announce the winner of the “ScreamPunk” Costume Contest. The Salon marks the final event in our party triathlon 🙂

Earlier on Saturday, at 12:30pm, the Cincinnati Lolita group will be hosting a Craft Day & Pot Luck, so if you live around Cincinnati you can make a whole day of it.

AND . . . plan next Halloween far in advance by RSVP’ing to the latest of our new events for 2015, the Cincinnati Halloween Masquerade on October 17th, 2015 . . .


As our humble website continues to grow and reach many people beyond Cincinnati and Ohio, we’d like to include more events in our Weekend Recommendations series. If you have a Steampunk, geeky, or “alternative” event that you would like us to feature, please fill out the form below and we’ll see what we can do to help you promote it 🙂
