"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" What The Hell Is Going On At The Showbiz Ball? (Slightly NSFW)

by Alex Gilman · August 29, 2012

Look, we're not exactly new to the weirdness that lurks on the edges of the nightlife scene. In fact, we vastly prefer bizarre costumes, gothy facepaint, and the occasional exposed buttcheek to the screen-printed button-downs and Axe body spray crowds that haunt the Hollywood clubs on Amateur Night. Nevertheless, we are obligated to point out when a certain party's aesthetic has gone beyond the goofy and into the downright stupefying. We're not saying we don't like the costumes that our pals at The Cobrasnake photographed at Love Bailey's Showbiz Ball, the eclectic creative director's celebration in honor of Schön! Magazine's new issue. If you want things to make any sense beyond this point, I'm afraid you've come to the wrong place.
