Halloween artist costume party

Last year I collaborated with photographer Alpha Smoot and a number of uber talented folks to create a Tortured artist Halloween dinner party and it’s one of my all-time favorite projects to date. I got to live out my childhood fantasy and college art history days of collecting all my favorite artists in one sitting. Dreamy! Here are the costumes we re-created. Find all the costume recipes link after the jump and here’s the video that Trisha Zemp made of the party. Such a great collab!



  1. Marie Antoinette and a DIY paper wig
  2. Frida Kahlo abd DIY heart 
  3. Birth of Venus (this was the model’s idea! Swear it!)
  4. Mona Lisa
  5. Van Gogh
  6. Picasso’s Old Guitarist
  7. Girl with a Pearl Earring
  8. Vanitas
  9. Georgia O’Keefe
  10. Blue Guitarist
