16 Awesome Costumed Couples at LACMA's Muse Ball (And Some Who Should Have Been Couples, But Sadly, Were Not)
Are you sick of Halloween yet? Me neither! It should be Halloween everyday. (And here at the LA Weekly's Style Council, it often feels like it is.) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art's annual Muse Costume Ball is one of the best places to people-watch. This year, couples stole the show. Here are the choicest ones, with a few solo-flyers who should have been couples, but sadly were not. I match them up for you now through the magic of blogging.
1. Siegfried & Roy
Seriously, if your costume involves hauling a pair of stuffed tigers around all night, you deserve to win. And I dare say these two actually did win something at LACMA's costume contest.

2. The Tigers
A couple within a couple. Double the trouble!
3. Shrunken Head Guy & Medusa
I'm not sure what these two were trying to achieve thematically, but they looked spectacular.
4. The Aristocats
Women dressed as French aristocrats dressed as cats. That's right, crazy cat ladies are royalty, I tell you. Royalty.
5. Totem Pole & Xena Warrior Princess
They've transcended cultures to be together.
6. The Cleavers
These two whippersnappers would not let me take their photo until I guessed who they were. Oh Ward. Oh June. Why do you torment me so?
7. Bert & Ernie
There is nothing more disturbing than giant Bert and Ernie wandering around, drunk, at a museum late at night. Thanks for the creepiness, guys!
8. Vampire & Doctor
Wouldn't they make a great sitcom? Vampires and doctors?
