Need a reason to bust out that costume you've been dying to wear since October last year? The second annual Vogue/Trash: Costume Fashion Ball Benefit will give Halloween junkies yet another excuse to put on the cape, tights, wig, boots, or whatever else they've got hiding in the depths of that trunk in the attic. Start out the night with the silent auction before ramping up for the runway portion featuring local artists prowling the catwalk sporting original designs. Snagging a coveted VIP ticket will get folks primo seats and nosh to nibble on. After the runway show, Patrick's Cabaret promises an epic dance party for all the Hercules wannabes out there trying to get down in a toga. Keep an eye out for the breakers and the funk-stylists bumping to some dirty electro and dance-floor bass. Looking to get those 15 minutes of fame in your Edie and Warhol costumes? Minneapolis Television Network will be recording the event to air at a later date, so be sure you're dressed to the outlandish nines.
