If you are going to a masquerade ball, stick to the theme of the ball. If it is Victorian, Shakespeare or the 1920s. Dress formerly or informally according to the host's specifications. Have masks to go with the theme as they also conceal the identity of someone and also add detail to the outfit. You can also wear a wig, hat or make-up. Do not wear a zombie or axe-wielding costume neither scary or gory costumes.
If you are invited to a masquerade ball, you should follow the theme unless there is none. If there is no theme, you should go semi-formal. Masquerade masks must be included in the dress code which could range from a small mask to one which filly covers your face.
