CHALK SHOT’S HALLOWEEN PARTY HOP

On November 4, 2015 by Kasey Jones, Ink.

Can you believe it’s already November? I can’t! The fact I’m writing my blog for Halloween is plain spooky (get it?). This Halloween CHALK SHOT hopped around Los Angeles with three different custom backdrops taking pics at parties with varying themes and guests.

The highlight of our Halloween party hop was the Garcia family’s annual bash. Every year the Garcias throw a Halloween party for their fellow Toluca Lake neighbors and decorate their house to the nines. Toluca Lake is one of those movie set looking neighborhoods that go all out for the holidays, and Halloween is definitely not neglected.

For their party, the Garcia’s wanted a spooky yet colorful custom backdrop that mirrored their Halloween decor. We decided to pay homage to the neighborhood by featuring graves of late celebrities who once lived in Toluca Lake. Another residential legend (this one living) at the bash was 7 time Oscar winning makeup artist Rick Baker. If you aren’t familiar with his work by name, he is the man behind Michael Jackson turning into the werewolf in “Thriller“, and the genius behind “The Nutty Professor,” “Men in Black,” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (to name a few). Needless to say, he and his family, who came dressed as many variations of The Joker (his wife dressing as The Joker’s companion Harley Quinn), won the evening’s costume contest hands down.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the Garcia’s bash, along with highlights from the other spook-tacular parties we were a part of this Halloween.
