Pittsburgh-based Specter Studios is a quiet, dedicated and prolific costume studio on a small side street in Sharpsburg. Among other feats of wonder, they’ve created a perfect replica of The Fly’s head which you can buy and don tonight, if you’ve waited til the last minute to pick out your costume. No one will recognize you, and if they do, you know you have some personal work to do. We’re impressed with the work coming out of this collective of people — they’re gaining an international reputation in the music and film industries for their spectacular handiwork and somewhat alarming imaginations.
We have a full line-up of creeps and freaks this weekend at Ace Hotel Palm Springs to celebrate Hallow’s Eve with Creatures Calling. DJ Day and Alf Alpha host terrifying versions of their resident Ace parties, and we’ve got a handful of bands from LA coming down as well. The Flashdance and Bash, Please host Creatures Night with some special guests, and they’re also running a contest for a night at the hotel — enter here. If you want to book the old fashioned way, you can get a cheap room with code SCARY.
Win a Patio room and dinner for 10 at Ace Hotel Palm Springs this weekend at our Halloween party. Tonight, we’ve got DJs in the Amigo Room, and tomorrow night, a family-style taco dinner, dance party with The Flashdance, costume contest and midnight swim. There’s a special rate for the weekend that includes the dinner tomorrow night. Get out of town and away from the hoards of tiny bedsheets and face paint coming to your door for candy.
