With the Release of tickets as we progress into the later, and warmer part of the year.. Halloween approaches. In 2011 we see Halloween dates on the 31st Of October fall on a Monday so we, like most will, have set the Magique Halloween Circus on the saturday 29th of October. The Event Trailer has just been released
( see below ) and the schedule for the night almost finalised )
Now the next question is…. what to dress up as? We have made it compulsory to be in ‘fancy dress‘ this Halloween as that is the make aspect that makes this horrifically special day fun fun! So deciding what to wear is a bit hard at first. After Googling Images Ideas I stumbled across a bunch of random costumes, some I would NEVER have thought of, and some just disgusting haha!
I find every Fancy Dress Party we have at least 1 : Joker, Pirate, Batman, Army man, Pimp, Alice in Wonderland so if your really keen on being original I would advise from staying away from these. Then again, you can always take a unique spin on any of the above, change up the Joker with a total different outfit but the makeup freaky face. Halloween does not have to be a horror costume, it is popular but you can do anything!
Sydney, Melbourne and well most of Australia slowly are starting to get back into the spirit of Halloween and in my opinion its great for the economy, for the costume shops and for the venues as the more people who want to party and bigger it gets in Australia the more will spend and partake in celebrating this day. Luna Park is the perfect place in our opinion, clowns are simply freaky no matter how fun & child friendly they are meant to appear.
I think Stephan Kings IT brought this on, and from there the “freaky clown” persona has far surpassed the orignal intended purpose of the clown. Magique is really interested in the theatrics of entertainment alongside the music which tends to dominate the nightclub, festival and party scene. Typically the only form of visual entertainment we find in the bigger events is elaborate lighting and sometimes pyrotechnics.
Performance performance performance, its one thing that can never be replaced by tuned lights, and $$ spent on stimulating pyrotechnics – indoor fireworks. I think it comes down to the theory “if it aint broke why fix it” which most promoters, clubs and the logically minded have. Because we ( team magique ) come from a Performance background we are not trying to “fix” it but rather, revamp what it means to party and celebrate!.
