Ahhh, this sounds so interesting. I went to a really cool Halloween show called Theatre Bizarre in Detroit last October and there were all sorts of sideshow acts. 5 Levels/floors of entertainment (it was at the historic masonic temple) and everyone dresses up. Some of the costumes were so inventive. I saw fire jugglers, acrobats, people getting hooked up (exactly like it sounds), and all sorts of other things. I know I missed some of the acts since everything was going on at once but it was so sweet! I took all sorts of pictures.
One of my fascinations is with pinheads. Someone was dressed like one and I got my pic taken with him lol I was jazzed!
Has anyone seen the movie Freaks from 1932? If not, you should check it out. It is an old black and white film with actual "freaks" who made the movie.
So jealous!!! I'm from Detroit originally and I miss all the events like that!!!! There just isn't as much going on down here in Orlando. :/ and masonic temple is seriously one of my favorite venues!! Solo pretty!!!
