Halloween Agenda: Get a VIP Tour of the Hollywood Costume Exhibit

Richard Harbaugh/A.M.P.A.S.

What could be more appropriate on Halloween night than a whirl through the Academy Museum's exhibit of storied film costumes?

On Halloween night, you can get into costume, take in all the wild ensembles around you, be spotted as the 10th Maleficent around town — or you can check out award-winning costumes, instead. 

The Hollywood Costume Exhibit — which opened in September and is currently being displayed at the Academy Museum on Fairfax Ave. and Wilshire Blvd. — will be hosting VIP tours on Oct 31. The exhibit's curator and costume designer, Deborah Nadoolman Landis, and Chrisi Karvonides will lead the special walk-through tours at 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., with the exhibition staying opened until 9 that evening — just in case trick-or-treating ends late. 

Academy members can purchase tickets for $10 each by phone (310-247-3000, ext. 1185) or email (HollywoodCostume@Oscars.org).

And if this isn't scary enough for you, go home and watch an episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, the perfect Halloween night entertainment.
