Party On! Our Favorite Costumes From Hornito's Halloween Blowout

We're still finding face paint residue behind our ears and tufts of acrylic hair still caught in our coats from our night at the Hornitos- and The Smile-sponsored Halloween party at the future NoMad Hotel (coming 2010!), designed by Jacques Garcia and Taavo Somer. From Flying Spaghetti Monsters to a a group of East Village squatters, we'd like to applaud those who rose above and beyond the urge to just don cheetah print and a novelty headband. To those who went the sexy cat route (MObama, we're looking at you), take a look at our favorite costumes from Saturday night to glean some inspiration for next year. What are you waiting for? Only 364 days to go!
