Kostume Kult Presents
HORNED BALL 2017
~ Barbarian Horde ~
The Empire is falling as the “others” advance – crossing borders, climbing walls and thundering
across the open plains. Do you fight or flee? Feast or fornicate? This Year’s Horned Ball
channels the brutal beauty of all Barbarians of fact or fantasy. Be you Mongolian, Visigoth or Cimmerian,
the Empire has grown corrupt and stupid — and is ready to be taken…
SATURDAY, April 15th
9pm to 5am
