This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

 / Step into an ethereal realm where sheer elegance meets playful allure at The Naked World's latest Undie Party – The Sheer Ball. Shed your inhibitions, embrace the tantalising attire of the translucent, and be captivated by what lies beneath. At the Sheer Ball, we invite you to layer your body in none to multiple translucent fabrics, remembering that genitals must be covered, but all nipples are equal.

For Sheer Ball, The Naked World has taken on the stunning expertise of Legit Events to bring our floral jungle to life. One of many spaces being erected is ASKIPAR's photography space, which will be dressed in 18msq of beautiful dense foliage. Those attending the event will be given access to a selection of the high res images captured in this space.

Arrive early to delight in the artistry of body painter Dali Susanto. Known for his murals and additions to Splore and Spirit Fest, Dali Sustano is here to paint you. Your delicate attire will evolve into excitingly suggestive and striking hues on the mezzanine.

Amid the drapes and waiting in the courtyard is Keelan McCafferty, the comical Fortune Teller who will share mystic tales and predictions from within an enchanted cave. Be warned, those who allow a glimpse into an enigmatic world may unveil secrets that intertwine with the sheer tapestry of your evening.
