If you're one of those last-minute types, Spybar's Halloween festivities are just for you. From 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., the River North nightclub will host an on-site costume "Fantasy Boutique" from Mario Ink, an infamous Chicago-based bodypainter. Choose from fully painted costumes, extreme eye makeup, character designs and prosthetic applications. (For appointments, call 866-624-2113.)
Once you've put the finishing touches on your club-ready look, you'll be ready to join the party, which will take place from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. Spybar's crime scene-inspired Halloween soiree will include yellow police tape, chalk outlines, ultraviolet lights and forensic-style props. Models posing as sexy secret agents will dust certain partygoers drinks for fingerprints, while actors in S.W.A.T. gear will rapel down the walls of the club.
Sponsored by Veuve Clicquot, the party will also feature "Yelloween Spies," judges who will scan the crowd for the most creative costumes. Winners will get bottles of Veuve's Yellow Label champagne.
