Novaween 14 “Quarantine” Halloween 2020 Costume Party
On a beautiful, Full “Blue” Moon Saturday, Halloween Night, October 31, 2020 we celebrated Novaween 14 “Quarantine.” Our was a Private, by Invitation Only Halloween Costume Party. Held at our 1920 built, downtown St. Pete venue NOVA 535.
Thanks to our charming photographer, the legendary Barry Lively, via BLivelyImages©, captured our fabulous still images. Our (upcoming) videos by Fitzaey and Underground Cirque will certainly also delight.
Our sales manager April Sherwin wore what many thought to be the best, and most topical costume, the 6′ referees. Excellent costuming April!
Entertainment tonight was provided by:
We built our entertainment around the lovely, talented ladies, and gents, of Underground Cirque. Founders Taylor Roberts (pictured above) and Gaby Rosa (pictured below) are both stars; wonderful humans and incredibly talented entertainers.
DJ Serafin, came to us via our old friend, Doug Hensel, aka DJ Fresh. Doug has celebrated here at NOVA 535 many, many times. On both sides of the DJ mixer! And who was mentioned in my book, It’s 5 am Go Home. Why? Grab a copy and find out! As to DJ Serafin, holy wow did he impress us! Bravo to the DJ!! Appreciate you DJ Serafin, and your ‘wind-the-clocks-back’ extra set! Magnificent!
Tarot Card reading out in our courtyard, by the always delightful Ani Crane, Psychic Queen of Fun. As usual, her table was busy all night with the curious and the more serious future ‘peekers’. Thank Ani!
COVID-19 inspired balloons, by the balloon master himself, Mark Byrne. Mark, he never disappoints! Having performed several times at NOVA 535, including during the Big Bang Show, Mark is balloon-tastic!
Gogo Dancer Elaine “Lanie” Hoxie shared her delightful energy and dance moves with us all night, thanks Lanie!
Thanks to TEAM NOVA leaders General Manager Ruby Thomas Dolce in charge, Bar Manager April Johnson working her magic, our Tech Manager, who is our Mr. 5-Stars and my younger brother, Chris Novilla, (pictured below in his clever “Chicken Cord on Blue” costume) our Operations Crew with Sir James Greenwalt, plus special thanks to Brian, Tasha, Luke, Khomeni, Whitney, Tameka and Security Mavericks.
Ous favorite Magic Man, Magician Cory Van Valin, continues to evolve his skills and surprises. He’s following in the footsteps of the Great Houdini, adding escape art to his always growing bag of tricks. Welcome back Magic Man!
