A masquerade…quick! What image comes to mind??
Depending on your age, there are many options.
For my daughter, it is “Labyrinth” with David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. A peculiar movie I thought at the time, I wouldn’t let my daughter watch it “until she was older”. She watched it anyway, and now my granddaughters (ages 6 and 7 ½ years) have watched it a dozen times. What a difference 25 years makes, I guess.
And now, those same granddaughters have attended their first “masquerade birthday party”. So much went into planning. The dresses had to be special. Glitzy jewelry was a must. Make-up? You betcha.
Personally, I think these little girls have the right idea for a masquerade ball. Lots of giggling, running around, and playing at being adults is better than my images of the black death plague taking out the sinners dancing in a castle.
