While the event is virtual this year, the Dress Code (while more relaxed in 2020) still applies. No street clothes (t-shirt/tank tops), no exception. Minimum attire includes: black dress shirt/blouse, cocktail wear, etc.
This event is known for being very ‘formal costume’ heavy. Think ‘snow queen from Narnia meets Harry Potter’. White/silver/blue attire encouraged, however, for those that still want to wear black, that is perfectly acceptable as well. In the past, the style of dress by attendees has ranged from formal/black-tie to elegant Gothic to woodland-creature costumes. Elaborate headpieces, ice crowns, antlers, etc. have always been very popular at this event. We encourage guests to look through the albums on the Vespertine Facebook Page for inspiration and photos from prior years.
Visual performing artists are some of those that have been financially hit the hardest by Covid-19. As a result, 100% of all ticket sales are going to the performers and DJ’s this year to help support these truly amazing and talented artists.
