In the VIP area of Orlando’s Firestone Live nightclub and bar over the weekend, cosplayers and Tim Burton fans were invited to join in an evening tribute to the dark director’s early works.

Inspired by films “Batman,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” and “Beetlejuice,” Florida-based performers Vita Devoid, Lisa Ann, and Matt Havoc took to the stage to put on a brief but entertaining cosplay-infused burlesque show featuring two strip teases followed by a group singalong to “Day-O.” Several attendees showed up in their best Burton-inspired outfits, from an elaborate showman Beetlejuice to equally elaborate costumes of Lock, Shock, and Barrel, along with an impressive stilt-walking Jack Skellington (portrayed by “Face Off” and “Naked Vegas” star Nix Herrera).

The event was for ages 18 and up and, naturally, so are the photos below.

The photos embedded in this post are largely family-friendly but the full slideshow at the bottom definitely requires viewer discretion. You’ll never look at Sally and Pee-wee the same way again.
