WARNING: COUNTERFEIT MIMESIS TICKETS ARE CIRCULATING!!!

Ticketing Fraud!ATTENTION all those attending Boston Decompression 2015: Mimesis! We have just received confirmation that a group of imposters are selling counterfeit tickets to Mimesis! Please be wary when purchasing any physical ticket from any individual claiming to be an official representative of Boston Decompression: Mimesis. These fraudulent tickets may appear totally legit at first view, but in many cases they are actually counterfeit replicas of the real thing. If you suspect that you might be in possession of a counterfeit ticket, we urge you to please take a photo of yourself with the questionable ticket and SEND YOUR PHOTO TO US at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will use your photo to verify the authenticity of the ticket and also confirm the real identity of the individual who bought the ticket. NOTE: If your ticket is found to be counterfeit, or you yourself are confirmed to be an imposter we will repost your photo on our website and event pages to warn others! Don’t let this happen to you!

100% AUTHENTIC TICKETS TO MIMESIS CAN BE PURCHASED HERE:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/boston-decompression-2015-mimesis-tickets-18986075864

We first became aware of a potential counterfeit operation when Homeland Security tipped us off to some strange online activity originating out of Cuba. After having an individual send us an authentication photo we realized we were dealing with a real fraud. However, it wasn’t until we got another confirmed case, this time right in the metro-Boston area involving a counterfeit ticket in the possession of a cat, that we realized we may have a much bigger problem on our hands. We need your photos to help us determine the size and scale of this counterfeit-imposter operation, so please send us your photo!

Photo identification of these first two confirmed imposters can be seen at the following link on our website, and additional photos sent to us will be posted there. Please take a look, as these photos may help you in determining the true originals from the inauthentic as we go forward:

Please get your tickets to Mimesis NOW, and beware of imitations and impostors!

Mimesis Counterfeits and Impostors!

We need YOUR photos to help us determine the size and scale of this counterfeit-impostor operation! Please SEND YOUR PHOTO TO This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Watch out for these confirmed counterfeits and impostors: 

Impostor photo send in from Cuba!

Counterfeit ticket held by a cat!

It wasn’t until we got another confirmed case, this time right in the metro-Boston area involving a counterfeit ticket in the possession of a cat, that we realized we may have a much bigger problem on our hands.


We are now facing a substantial cyber-security threat with the infiltration of bots! They pretend to be real people in order to fool our ticketing system.

Go buy your TICKETS before the bots get them all!!!

Real human or BOT?


On Halloween night there was more fiendish activity! We thought that ghosts and ghouls were only a representation of our imagination. Is this the real thing?

A "real" ghoul?


Just when we were getting a handle on who we could trust, a betrayal from our nearest neighbor to the north! Many wonderful Canadian friends have participated in Boston Decompression, but is this one a true friend, or truly a frenemy?

Northern Exploiter


Ticket scarcity! -- Wow, that didn't take long! Mimesis presale tickets just SOLD OUT, and there are already hucksters and frauds about peddling genuine counterfeits! Don't be like this imposter, you still have a chance to get in to Mimesis. There will be a LIMITED number of tickets available at the door for $30. So get there EARLY! Doors are at 7 PM!
