Costumes rules

• Weapons (real or toy) including but notlimited to guns, swords, bows and arrows, staffs, clubs, and axes.
• Costume accessories larger than 15 inches, including but not limited to wings, canes, tools, umbrellas.
These items should be left at home or in the patrons' vehicles. We do have limited space behind the front desk for those who need to check in items.
• Masks

Security has the right to deny entry to any costumes that may damage artwork.

Costume contest: Think you have the best costume at the event? Our ARTafterDARK committee members will be walking around, handing out golden tickets to their favorite costumes. At 8pm, finalists will strut their stuff across the stage, and a King, Queen, and Group will be crowned! Winners will receive a frightfully good HoMA gift bag, including two (2) tickets to see a Halloween-night screening of Romero's Night of the Living Dead at the Doris Duke Theatre!

Visit the iichiko Bar in Palm Courtyard for a frightfully good cocktail and some fun photo activities.


Specialty cocktail: Ambrosia, iichiko BLU mixed with fresh-pressed apple juice, a dash lemon juice, and topped with a pinch of cinnamon.
