Last night's Edwardian Ball saw attendees in their best and strangest finery for a night of music, performances and art.

The San Francisco-imported Edwardian Ball went for its seventh run in Los Angeles last night at Hollywood's Fonda Theatre. LAist was there to capture the best and strangest costumes, the breathtaking performances and the annual re-telling of an Edward Gorey story. This year's tale was The Stupid Joke, about a little boy's prank that went horribly awry.
