MUSE COSTUME BALL at LACMA
Editor’s Caveat: Although most individual tickets are sold out, one can purchase a Halloween membership to LACMA which comes with two Costume Ball tickets. Call 323 857-6010 for information.
“Ghoul meets glamour at the fifth anniversary of the Muse Costume Ball as we walk down the blood red carpet on the arm of Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008. Join us as we enjoy mysterious potions concocted by Pernod Absinthe while getting down to live music by Grand Ole Party and a DJ set by Le Femme Digitale. Once again, the party kicks off in the L.A. Times Central Courtyard followed by the after party in the LACMA West Penthouse featuring our annual Costume Contest. Dress to impress as paparazzi lurk at every turn!”
