Half-tourist and half-journalist, I am a full-time hot chocolate drinker who never leaves her camera. Always on the lookout, from classical music to rap, to the arts or good spots to visit, I could also feed myself with history and culture of all kinds.

The legendary Rothschild family, whose wealth was inimitable, hosted eccentric parties with guests like Salvador Dali during the ’70s. They preferred weird themes and fancy dresses to create terrifyingly glamorous outfits and a hauntingly lavish environment. These were called ‘Surrealist Ball’, and together with Imagine Film Festival’s ‘fantastic fashion’ theme inspired Amsterdam Spook to give you a taste the same dark extravaganza during The Surrealist Ball night.

Get an extravagant costume…

A night full of style like Marie-Hélène de Rothschild’s parties, that’s what Amsterdam Spook offers. From six hours it’s all about style and music. All you have to do is get dressed in an inventive way, but you can get some inspiration from the greatest, like Jean-Paul Gaultier, René Magritte or Lady Gaga. Amsterdam Spook is an organization driven by a passion for the arts of costume, make-up, special effects and creativity without borders. In collaboration with various artists, costumers, filmmakers and creative crafters, they’ve been organizing theme parties since 2000.

… for an imaginative styling night

You’re invited to The Surrealist Ball as if you were part of the ’70s high society, taking you through a trip of your darkest and wildest imagination. The servants were waiting for the guests dressed as cats, and this time you can see them in Miss Bunty’s open catwalk. If you’re an extravagant fashion lover, then you’ll also love the performers: Studio Nepco, Miss Eva Blue or Darkminded Angels as performance artists, theater group HipSick, or Olifant Takeovers’ absurdist plays. But there are stylists, costume artists and photography studios as well. Moreover, if you want to make it through the night you’ll need music. Three DJs will make you dance, so beware not to fall on the dancefloor with your extravagant costume!
