Heidi Klum is hosting her annual Halloween Costume party again in New York City. Heidi considers herself the “Queen of Halloween” and spends hours prepping for her costume. Last year, Heidi was an old woman who walked with a cane. The supermodel was so convincing that her movements even mimicked her character. This year celebrity guests are invited to a Haunted Circus theme. The Décor will include creepy clowns, “fun mirrors”, freak shows, scary puppets as well as zombie ring masters, fortune tellers and sword swallowers. Partygoers will be dancing to the music of special guest DJ Questlove. SVEDKA Vodka will be serving specialty cocktails including The Ringmaster’s Revenge, The Chic Freak and The Sideshow Spectacular. Motorola will be on hand at the party to promote the ultimate Halloween accessory, the colorful new Moto X.
