Scintillating 2014 Fantasy Fest Schedule of Events

The 2014 Key West Fantasy Fest Schedule of Events in Key West FL is guaranteed to thrill, titillate, tantalize and tempt you like never before!

The theme for 2014 will be "Animéted Dreams and Adventures" and it's scheduled for October 17 - 26.

The theme is a nod towards the Japanese, famous for their animated productions and a subculture that has developed call cosplay, short for costume playing.

Cosplay allows participants to wear costumes and jewelry to create or enhance the character they are portraying.

So this year, let your imaginations runs wild! Be creative, let your costumes tell the story of who you are, at this year's sexiest Fantasy Fest ever!

But hurry! You don't want to be caught without a sufficient wardrobe! Now's the time to start planning your Fantasy Festival costume. You're going to want to wear something that will make you stand out from the crowd when you attend all or even part of the 10 day sextravaganza.

This means you'll want to gather up a number of Fantasy Fest costume ideas. Buy costumes that will suit who you are, then embellish them to create a total YOU.

You're better off to have at least a few Fantasy Fest costumes sexy enough to wear. Remember, you want to be a part of the event not just a spectator.

You'll also need to make your Fantasy Fest plans as soon as possible. Popular Key West events that require tickets can sell out quickly. Also Key West accommodations can become difficult to find at the last minute.
