THE GOBLIN BALL - Ember Rules

This is a Stream 2: Events, Cons and Cosplay

After a sold out night in 2013 The Goblin Ball returns for it's 2nd year.

Dance the night away surrounded by the best costumes in Melbourne and adventure deep into the mysteries of Ember rule.

As music from a string quartet drifts through the Grand Ballroom grab the hand of a masked stranger for a waltz. If you seek some dance magic, the labyrinthine back hallway hides entry to retro beats. Goblin goods and services are traded in the Goblin marketplace (rumour is there are shady secrets on sale).

The Goblin Ball is a unique blend of fantasy and entertainment and includes three rooms of revelry. With a cast of colourful creatures, performers and magical activities there is never a dull moment. This years guests have to opportunity to parade their finery in front of the fire Gods and two lucky guests will be crowned best dressed.

Journey into the world of the Goblin Ball to experience an evening that is part fantasy and part dance. Choose to relax and enjoy the entertainment or step up and join a quest.

The adventure is entirely yours.

    I've been looking forward to this all year (would have been the perfect first event for me to attend). However, many issues of a time and monetary nature have had to take precedence. Shattered :( I'll have to wait for next years event. Hope everyone has a ball (classy pun, I know ;p) and long live Jareth, the goblin king. Also, will there be footage and pictures taken I'd be able to look at after this event?

      Hopefully we'll all try and add our pics Jake :)

    Pre-evert meeting place/time: Those who want to gather beforehand, suggesting we meet from 6pm at the Peacock Hotel, which is just up the hill on the next corner from the town hall. Not sure if I'll be there at 6 on the dot, but fellow costumers should be pretty easy to spot!! :)

    For you all to keep an eye out for (I should be easy to spot), I will be wearing a black and white dress with a shadow puppet theater in the skirt and my partner will be in a bowler hat and has a long dark beard. See you all there!

    I am intending to attend the goblin ball, wondering if perhaps it is weird that it would be the event I've chosen as my first meetup with this group...?

    June 2, 2014

    • Jenneli

      Our first meet-up with the group was another costume event and it was a great time!

    This sounds freaking awesome! This is why I moved here! Sadly, $99 is a bit out of the budget this year. Definitely putting aside some cash for next year though! Can't wait to see what goes on here...

    • Donna

      Last year there were no tickets available at the door Michelle, so you'll need to consider pre-purchasing :)
