The World's Best Costume Parties

by Sarah Gold

No question about it: Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. Sure it's fun for the kiddies, but we prefer the slightly scandalous adult version (hmmm, to dress up as George Bush or Curious George? Queen Elizabeth or Freddie Mercury?). As it turns out, we're hardly alone. Cultures all over the world have a similar enthusiasm for stepping out of their everyday realities and donning a getup. Sometimes the revelries are religious, other times cultural—often enough, they're just an excuse to get wild. But rest assured, somebody, somewhere, is celebrating something with a costume party. Why not put on something funky and join 'em?
