Film-Inspired Costumes at the Kubrick Ball

The Stanley Kubrick–themed Muse Costume Ball took over the museum last night. The Stanley Kubrick exhibition (which opens today) was filled with twins, Eyes Wide Shut masks, Lolitas, A Clockwork Orange characters, and more throughout the night.

Colleen Atwood, Academy Award–winner and long-time costume designer for Tim Burton, led the panel of judges for the annual costume contest. Film Independent at LACMA curator Elvis Mitchell MC’d the contest and provided excellent film-related commentary for each costume entry.

Below are just a few of the costume highlights from the night.

Before the Costume Ball, LACMA staff got into the spirit with a costume inspired by LACMA’s most iconic artwork: Chris Burden’s Urban Light.
