Beggar's Carnivale (NSFW) 

The tenth edition of the Beggar's Carnivale took place at Casa Loma Ballroom in south St. Louis on Saturday, October 22. There was a great turnout, considering the Cardinals were playing in the third game of the World Series. Special guests included the Vagabond Opera from Portland, Oregon. The theme was "Victorian Halloween." Crystal Rolfe was there and took these photos for RFT
