Are you heading to a Crime and Pun-ishment event without a clue on what to wear? Fear not, Private Eye! You can whip up a 1920s-inspired hairpiece faster than an investigator can ask whodunnit. (Anyway, youdunnit with this simple tutorial, you clever thing.)
Weapons of Choice:
Large faux feather(s)
Barrette or sturdy bobby pin
Sequined headband or string of "pearls" fit to your head
Sparkly broach or "jewel"
Glue the base of your feather(s) vertically along your barrette and allow it to dry completely. While you're waiting, make any necessary adjustments on your headband to ensure it lays securely across your forehead, just below your hairline.
Fasten your broach onto the headband so it sits comfortably above your ear and attach the dried feather-barrette alongside the broach. The feather should raise above your head and fall slightly forward.
Congratulations, Detective. You've solved your costume caper! Now, toss on a flapper dress and Charleston-shimmy your way to the event. We know you'll have a killer time.
Here at The Murder Mystery Company, we have a pretty diverse selection of themed shows to choose from, and we change them periodically so return customers can take in and solve new mysteries with our grimprov trained actors and actresses.
What is grimprov, you ask?
Grimprov is an acting method invented and used by The Murder Mystery Company that employs a skillful combination of acting and improvisation. This allows our troupes to interact with any audience from young children to adults, and everywhere in between. It’s so important to our shows we even used it in our web address!
Using the grimprov method, the actors and actresses can actively include everyone in the show, in any size group, whether it is a small group of 8 or 10 people or a huge group of over a thousand! We want every show to make our guests feel involved, and that is why we invented grimprov. What fun is it to sit and watch a play when the actors and actresses could be coming right to your table for a little chat?
So, when you come to one of the many shows put on by The Murder Mystery Company, don’t show up expecting to sit back and watch the night go by. Be ready to solve a crime and bring a killer to justice, and don’t forget to bring your detective hat!

There is nothing more enchanting than an evening of elaborate decor, featuring costumes, masks, dancing and the finest of quisines.
Masquerade balls have been around for hundreds of years, dating back to as early as the 12th century. What has kept them around for so long? It may very well be the exciting intrigue and mystery they entail that has done the job.
Becoming more prominent in the 13th century, the Masquerade Ball is most commonly associated with the Carnival of Venice, which indicates why the Venetian mask has become a staple at many formal events. People show up dressed to the nines and then conceal their identity with the most ornate masks, allowing them to be whomever they choose for the evening, and we're left with one question:
Is there any better place to plan a murder mystery party?
With identities hidden, the evening instantaneously begins in mystery. Enchanting? Absolutely, but also potentially fatal. How will you track down a murderer when everyone is pretending to be someone else?
With Murder at the Masquerade, The Murder Mystery Company is inviting you to the Billionaires’ Club’s annual Masquerade Ball for a dreadfully delightful night of elegant food, fashion and fun. Invite your friends and family and dress in your finest for this affair with your fanciest mask to disguise your identity and this will be a night you'll never forget.
The Murder Mystery Company takes this Masquerade Ball to the next level, setting the scene for the heinous crime of murder and giving you and your guests the chance to unravel the clues to figure out which masked suspect is responsible.
