ABOUT

Black & Light Ball is Kostume Kult’s second annual Burning Man camp
fundraiser… Culture-jamming Truman Capote’s once infamous Black &
White Ball, we do something similar but with a mix of seizure inducing
light art, dozens of black light cannons and hundreds of participants
in luminescent, glowing costumery…

KOSTUME KULT is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization supporting
costuming, themed events and mad fun while bringing wonderful people
together. We teach people to create, collaborate and celebrate at a
number of public events while producing several annual gala
fundraisers to support it all. For more, check the FB page or
