Courtesy Warner Bros. Why so serious about your costume? Just go as The Joker (Heath Ledger) in 'The Dark Knight'.

Tonight, Oct. 23, the Hair & Makeup Artist Network will host its first annual Monster Ball Halloween Celebration at Tangier Restaurant in Los Feliz, California. Sponsored by E.I. School of Professional Makeup, this creative showcase will give guests the opportunity to mingle with celebrity hair and make-up artists from film, television and print as well as top directors, producers, photographers and agents.

Show the industry what you can do: Winners of a costume contest receive prizes from Cinema Secrets and Mothership Salon. Door prizes include products from Vivid MD Skin Care and Elaine Cosmetics. The doors open at 8 p.m., and a cover charge of $25 before 10 p.m. guarantees a drink ticket and food.

The Hair & Makeup Artist Network was created by make-up artist Michelle Lee as a way to help fellow make-up artists learn the best way to network in the entertainment industry. The Network has hosted workshops taught by the Cloutier Agency, Smashbox, Paul Mitchell, Make Up For Ever, Fred Blau, celebrity hairstylist Neeko and many others.
