Last month's Great Chicago Fire Festival was a bit of a fiasco, so the pressure was on for Redmoon to make its Halloween party something special. Luckily, the Pilsen-based theater company has been throwing visually stunning Hallow's Eve bashes for several years. The fifth annual Boneshaker certainly didn't fizzle, welcoming 1,000 guests to the company's headquarters, where attendees were able to sip cocktails, ride a carousel and take in acrobatic feats. We documented the creative costumes and contraptions on display at this seasonal celebration.

Dear Zach Long, 


True, “The fifth annual Boneshaker certainly didn't fizzle” like Redmoon’s grand fire spectacle on the Chicago River that sputtered and died earlier in October. 


But when you consider how Redmoon promoted its fifth annual spectacular on their website—“(IT WILL BE) AN OTHERWORLDLY PLAYGROUND WITH INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES AND AN ALL-NEW ARRAY OF MULTISENSORY DELIGHTS”—well, let’s just say it failed to fulfill expectations.


For this attendee, the most interesting visual displays weren't by Redmoon. 


They were by costumed partygoers who paid one hundred dollars to get in.

@Dave W You can add my name to the list of party goers who now think the event should've been called "boneSLACKERS."
