Where's the Costume Party?

I know this week has been video-heavy, but this is just too great to leave out. This is the kind of Halloween party I'd like to attend this year: costume sent by courier, with gouache illustration showing how to wear it and a chauffeured car waiting downstairs.



And the best part is that they don't even go to the party! I'm sure it's something Oscar Wilde said, but there's certainly as much pleasure in denying some invitations as accepting them. Nevertheless, I do wish they decided not to go to silly Mrs. Augustus Freelinghouser's costume party and kept the costumes on anyway.

Since it's impossible to go to parties in movies, maybe I would settle for the party where the lovely Chau would be my little pony:

OK I must instantly watch Riptide. Favorite lines are the ones where he asks how he'll smoke & drink in his costume. Priorities.

This is one of my favorite movies! And Norma shearer is unquestionably my favorite actress of all time!

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
