An Early Halloween at The Standard with Kanon

Leandra Medine | October 31, 2011

In partnership with Kanon.

Those of you voting for the abolition of Halloween as October 31st and instead dubbing it the last Saturday of October, say I. This passed weekend found me and all the other cool people who decided to brave the snow at The Standard Hotel for Andre Balasz’s annual Halloween party at the Boom Boom Room. Chelsea Handler was there, being funny as shit as usual, Scott Lipps dressed at Peewee Herman, there were eight Black Swans, one of which a very bitchy man, Terry Richardson as a Hasidic Jew, more than anything though: people were getting drunk. On Kanon. Duh. It’s organic.

This guy stole my heart, and as for me:

Jewdolph, the culturally ambiguous reindeer it was. Have a peek at my top picks of Repelling and Propelling Halloween costumes and a more extensive look at the party featuring plentiful photos by none other than Pablo Frisk, right here.

    Great post, Jewdolph! I need to steal that leopard idea, amazing make-up. I would probably end up looking more like Chester Cheetah though.

  • onelonemagpie

    Oh, I do love that Superman from your top picks list. Yes, please.

    You look VERY cute on that last picture. btw you have – by far- the best blog of the galaxy. Love from Belgium

  • Jennifer Cary Diers

    Don't you think a Hasidic Jew costume falls under the category of "dressing as race?" I'm kind of surprised Terry Richardson went that way.

  • Aryn

    I like how you mix Halloween and Christmas since that's exactly what every store in America looks like right now!

    You said… "passed" weekend as opposed to "past" – and I'm an asshole for pointing it out. But my OCD takes over and I have no control. Peace, love and grammar.
