There was fake fur and dyed feathers galore at The Warsaw for Kostume Kult's Horned Ball. The Village Voice's nifty slideshow says the ball takes its inspiration from the New Cavemen Lifestyle, but our historical flashbacks were solely to old-school children's television.This is Kostume Kult's sixth such shindig, and all the revelers seemed to want to make it count. But the fun on display was more Grover-and-Gelflings than Geico. It took us back, not to the Neolithic, but to the rec room floors and basic cable of our youth . . .
We're veering into Pan's Labyrinth territory. Our maybe Chronicles of Narnia. It all blends together after a while.
It's Jennifer Connolly from Labyrinth. No, it doesn't matter that she's not brunette. No, it doesn't matter that that's a woman with her and not David Bowie. No, it doesn't matter that we have captioned thusly only because we wanted to talk about David Bowie in Labyrinth. Remember how tight his stirrup pants were?
