Put on your best tricorne or rococo-style ballgown and travel back in time to 18th-century France at the Dances of Vice Festival II. The three-day costume party, which features a picnic at the New York Botanical Garden (August 22) and an 18th-century fashion show with fencing demonstrations (August 23) at the Montauk Club in Park Slope, ends tonight with the Münchausen Time Travellers Ball. Dance the night away at Rebel NYC to music by Voltaire, the Deadfly Ensemble, Fern Knight, and the Stumblebum Brass Band while taking in a theatrical fashion show that covers all styles from Victorian to Steampunk.
