Have you ever wanted to shop (or at least rifle through) Miss Scorpio's closet? This is your chance. She's teaming up with fellow dress-up addicts and craft-makers for some closet-cleaning and handmade clothing & accessory shopping. Think one-of-a-kind vintage, feathers and fascinators, fingerless leather gloves, fun pillows and other gifts, and lots and lots of sparkles. Of course even divas have days off, so there will be plenty of casual wear alongside costume and vintage pieces. Plus: by-donation champagne & small snacks, chill soundtrack, and lounging in our awesome loft and sprawling roof. Perfect spring Sunday.

Confirmed vendors (more TK):

  • Anne Arden McDonald - lace, sea creatures and natural elements in hand-cast silver
  • Dana Divine - antique clock part jewelry, hair pieces, ear fins and dread extensions
  • Fancy Unicorn Designs - handcrafted jewelry inspired by creative energy of the City
  • La Familia Purry - furry couture: handmade partywear, prints, accessories, and costumes
  • The Mermaids of North America - NSFW onesies, tote bags, tee shirts, and prints
  • Mustache Mermaid - accessories that go both ways
  • Sarah Sparkles - stone & crystal jewelry; delicate fascinators
  • Wendy Roca & Nicole Geneva - fabulous handbags, delightful fragrances and charming accessories

We still have a few vendor spots for the event. Would you like to sell something that's a fit for our costume-loving artsy audience? Drop us an email (gs at geminiandscorpio) with links to your work. There's no fee, just a suggested 20% donation to the space. We have: loads of outlets, wi-fi, seating. BYO: racks & tables, extensions, lights.

A classic 1920s speakeasy party in a secret Brooklyn loft, with live swingin' sounds by vintage jazz bands, blazing burlesque divas, exotic cocktails, and the best electro-swing DJs remixing and reinventing vintage grooves late into the night. "Gatsby-era fun with a twist of new-school vibe" (The Village Voice).

The night starts with an introductory dance class for swing basics by Brooklyn Swings, who teach at our loft every Monday night. Live music until 1am. Burlesque fabulousness during and between. Sweet remixed vintage beats after, until the dancing is done.

The Jazz Age never ended, it just got funky. Dress accordingly: "An event worth wearing that ridiculous zoot suit for." - TimeOut NY. "Corsets and top hats tweaked with studs and leather are totally appropriate." - The New York Times. Suggestions: classy, tailored, glamorous, vintage (1920s-1940s), evening, hats, feathers, sequins, beads. No casual attire. Past Swing House details & photos here and here; hi res press photos here and here.

Press: "We love any excuse for a fancy-dress party, and Gemini & Scorpio present a doozy with Swing House...patrons in zoot suits and full flapper regalia dance the night away to live swing, jazz, and be-bop." - Flavorpill. "Gatsby never attended a party this good" - 24/Seven. "It's like a remixed version of the Roaring '20s, with live music and burlesque dancing." - TimeOutNY
