What is The Villains Ball?

The Villains Ball is a one night only upscale costume ball filled with pure villainy held in Washington, DC! One of the most anticipated cosplay events of the year. This is not your ordinary ball, this is a celebration of all the villains out there who often get overshadowed by their heroic counterparts.

Tell Me More!

This event is not for the heroes, so leave your capes and spandex at home! We are calling all villains, from all fandoms, to come together for one night of mayhem. Whether you are a fan of anime, comic books, sci-fi, Disney, or any other genre, this is the perfect opportunity to let your evil side shine.
