Necktoberfest Photos

It’s that time of year again! Yup, Halloween—Neckface’s favorite holiday and once again he threw an epic party. With the back lot of Black Hollywood painted up and a table full of original artwork for sale—plus a costume contest with enough prizes for everyone to be a winner—this party was definitely one to mark on the calendar. Maybe with an upside-down cross or something… —Joe Hammeke
