Black rose circus sweet 16 (Dark Circus party 2014)

Next year it's my sweet 16 and for awhile I've been wanting to do a gothic/twisted circus theme but so far I have not came up with any good ideas so I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas.

There will be about 10 girls around 15/16. And so far all I know is the venue, the date, the fact that I'm going as the ring master and that I want to do a hand invite as well as a video invite.

I live in England and have a budget. Normally I host a halloween party every year which everyone enjoys but this time I want it to be special.

The venue I'm using is my house so the areas to work with are a large living room, the kitchen which is connected to the dinning room which is one of the two main rooms used for parties and the hallway.

For music so far I only have creature feature songs. Any help will be appreciated, thank you.


Heres the pinterest board iv'e been adding to for awhile now:

I also want to put "They won't stop laughing somewhere"

The dress code for the guests is that they can chose uf they're a circus viewer (In which just simply black and white clothes) Or a member of the circus (Which can be anything from a zombie knife throwers assistant to a clown)

The only problem is the decor. To be honest I don't want it to be just clowns but a Circus with vampires e.t.c. I've looked through the freak-show/carnival/circus forums on HF. However I have no ideas. Any one have any decor ideas?

These links might help give you ideas. Alternately, you could try watching the movie "Vampire Circus" for inspiration.

If you're looking for vampires to fill your space, you might try out Law Enforcement Targets. They sell paper target practice sheets with excellent quality images. With shipping, they're around $3.50 a piece. They have a few vampires here: http://www.letargets.com/estylez_ps.aspx?searchmode=category&searchcatcontext=~010000~010140

I took the Becky and Roxy zombie targets, cut them out and turned them into stand ups. Then I simply made paper vampire teeth for them to go with my Dracula stand up. http://www.letargets.com/estylez_ps...gory&searchcatcontext=~010000~010106~010106.5

Here's a pic of what that looked like. You might add some details to fit your vampire circus theme.

I got some ideas from the film the devils Carnival.

The dining room is going to be Carnival , like this
Night Public space Lighting Crowd Event

The bathroom will be made into a clowns dressing room with makup tubes and a few clown pictures.

And the hallway will be a handmade fun house mirror room

Thank you all for you're help. I have now officially made the video invite. It took about seven hours to make and I don't own any of the GIFS or music but I own the story(?)

Oh and we're moving the party outside but it will be inside if it rains
