WHAT ATTIRE IS APPROPRIATE FOR 12 INCHES OF SIN’S IMMERSIVE ART EXPERIENCE?

We like being an event where people dress up in many different ways, from black-tie to high fetish or even dazzling costumes. You’ll see the full range, from casual jeans to dance club attire to full leathers to barely anything at all. We want you to feel comfortable and sexy. Wear whatever makes you feel that way!

CAN I TAKE PHOTOS DURING THE EVENT? WILL PHOTOS BE TAKEN OF ME?

We have staff photographers who document the event. You always have the option of declining to pose for a photographer, though you may be in wide angle or crowd shots. It is always polite to ask others if taking pictures is permitted. If you have concerns about being recognized, we encourage you to attend in masquerade or costume yourself so that your identity is obscured.
