*Note From Melbourne Sci Fi and Fantasy Organisers*
Hi all just wanted to be clear there isn't a Melbourne Sci Fi and Fantasy Meetup Group contact/host for this event. We have just posted event as a courtesy to the wider sci-fi and fantasy community and encourage anyone going to comment below about meeting each other at the event. - Flick (Janeway Tightpants)

This year’s theme is
The fortune tellers welcome you in, the skeletons rattle their bones in anticipation, the lights flicker on, the carousel whirls and a calliope wheezes to life. An evening at the Carnival will not soon be forgotten.
Hush, the corpse brides awake! Headless horsemen ride; magicians appear in a puff of smoke. All the creatures of the gloom recieve an invitation, the howlers, the living dead, the truly dead and the unearthly. We shall be in a gallows humour this night!
Dress for the dead or for the living, but especially for the carnies. Circus artists may inspire you, a thing with two heads, something small and ghastly that grew up behind the sofa, and of course Death herself takes many forms.
…the end may be inevitable, but first we dance.
We’re now taking requests for the DJ! So if there’s a song you can’t wait to boogey to, let us know in the comments section below…
