Amethyst before the Vampire Masquerade Ball

Annual Vampire’s Masquerade Ball Portland

The Annual Vampire’s Masquerade Ball Portland is “a night of gothic elegance and decadence highly anticipated each year in the city of roses.It’s an evening where over 800 guests from the various gothic/ industrial/ alternative lifestyle communities from around the nation gather in the Melody Ballroom amongst crystal chandeliers and Edwardian cornices to socialize and dance the night away.”

Bela Lugosi Wine

I have the great pleasure of being friends with Bela G. Lugosi and Lynne Lugosi Sparkes, the son and granddaughter of the great actor Bela Lugosi. Bela Lugosi was a longtime friend of my grandfather Kalman Marki. I am currently researching material for a book about them and their friends.

Bela G. and Lynne graciously sent a bottle of their great wine from the Lugosi winery to be raffled at the Vampire’s Masquerade Ball! Amethyst created a wonderful basket with lots of Dracula themed goodies. Here are two photos with Direwolf Omega, the winner of the Bela Lugosi wine in 2014!

Beautiful people, amazing costumes
