How is it the end of October already?? I haven't dressed up for Halloween since probably college but I do still like to do "Halloween-y" activities during this month. I actually really enjoy the month of October just because of the transition into fall..like the colors, the weather, the sweaters and boots and dark colored nail polish!
So what better way to get into the Halloween spirit than to check out Guillermo del Toro's exhibit at LACMA?! For those who aren't familiar with him, he is a film director who is known for creating horror, monster and mythical movies. The exhibit displays storyboards from his movies, concept art and the actual props! If you have seen Crimson Peak, Hellboy, or Pacific Rim, you'll get to see some of the props in person here! It was a very neat exhibit because most of the props you'll see here, you probably have seen in movies that you didn't even know was directed by Guillermo del Toro! Walking through the exhibit was pretty spooky just because the props were so real life and detailed that you felt like you were in a horror movie. This exhibit came at the most perfect time.
If you plan on visiting, they are running the exhibit until November 27th. Tickets are $25 and parking is another $15. I definitely recommend getting tickets online because the line does get pretty long at LACMA, especially on the weekends.
You can't really come to LACMA and not play with the "pasta". I honestly do not even know what this is called, but it looks like pasta, therefore I will call it pasta. But wash your hands after because I bet it is filled with germs because little kids and everyone just touches it.
