Need more Halloween costume inspo for this week's many parties? Take a gander at the superior looks served at LACMA's annual Muse Costume Ball, which went down this past Saturday. Inspired by "old Hollywoodland," this year's event included live music by Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes, a DJ set by hip-hop phenom Theophilus London, creepy Zombie performance artists and, our favorite, a retro costume contest.

In addition to horrifying looks from classic films like The Shining (check out the twins above), Rosemary's Baby and Hellraiser, there were tons of nostalgia-inducing pop culture references, including cereal star Franken Berry, fashion fave Zombie Boy and Breaking Bad's Heisenberg. Our award for Best Local Landmark went to a partygoer dressed up as North Hollywood's Circus Liquor sign, which was pretty genius. See it after the jump.
