Between the halls of Winter and Summer, the Lord of Misrule dances with the Maiden of Spring. Let us cross the veil between darkness and day, walking the Moon’s road, bringing the Sun.
This year we explore the theme of the elements: earth, air, fire, and water, as well as spirit, ether, metal, wood, or any other elements your cosmology recognizes. Come clothed in earth or veiled in water, alight like need fire– or wrapped in clouds and wind. Be the lush summer earth or the crystalline night sky, come masked in dark glamour, or shine like the dawn.
Choose your favorite element, or embrace mutability! Come dance with the Wild Ones in twilight and trance! Seelie, Unseelie, and Wild Fae– peris, goblins, daemons and devas– all welcome and lustily encouraged.
Garb: Bright and dark finery, symbols of the elements, particolored hose and motley wear, masques, body paint, jewelry, wings, ferns and flowers, mystic armor, enchanting furbelows and other surprises. Whether of this world, or another– you are welcome!
