A little kink, a little fetish, a lot of fun. Halloween weekend kicks off with a costumed gala at Design Center of the Americas (DCOTA).

Pride Fort Lauderdale and AHF are throwing a Halloween extravaganza. With a costume contest, open bar, and live Dj, they promise this will be a Halloween party like you’ve never experienced.

The Fetish and Fantasy-themed bash will be co-hosted by two South Florida Icons: Kitty Meow and FayWhat.

“Pride Fort Lauderdale does nothing halfway,” FayWhat told SFGN. “They are pulling all the stops for this Halloween extravaganza. They've been working on this event for months and each week there's been an added, mind-blowing surprise!”

She says this party will more than make up for COVID canceling Halloween last year.

DJs Lady Snack Daddy and Kidd Madonny will share music duties and be joined by a series of haunting performers entertaining the crowd. Tickets start at $85 dollars for general admission. The VIP Experience is $150 and the VIP Red Light District is $1500 for a table of six. While everyone can go to the open bar, a perk of the VIP sections are top-shelf liquor.

“We are really excited about presenting an upscale Halloween event that’s all-inclusive with cash prizes galore,” co-host Kitty Meow says.

The costume contest has prizes of $250, $500, and $1,000 and we get the feeling that the naughtier the costume, the better your chances.

“When it comes to uniqueness, our community always comes up with the best, most imaginative costumes,” FayWhat said. “Pop culture and scandals are always included. I expect to see Squid Game realness. Someone is definitely going to dress like the First LGBTQ+ Man on the cover of Playboy. Or Britney... FREED!”

FayWhat has plenty of ideas for her own costume but has yet to pick one.

“That is so tough. I want to be everything! I want to tap into my fetish lesbian side for sure. From Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala to the newly out Queen of the night, Elvira.”

You can see which look (or looks) FayWhat picks at the DCOTA on Friday, Oct. 29. The party is from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. Tickets are on sale now at
