Halloween is over, and that means waking up hungover and poring over Instagram to find the parties you missed and costumes you wish you'd thought of. We've got you covered on the second count, having culled a collection of revelers bedecked in some of the world's most iconic artworks. Alongside the well-executed (if obvious) van Goghs and Lichtensteins are the unexpected couples costume, Pollock and Rothko, and a killer version of Divine as painted by Andy Warhol. Scroll the feed below before you have to put on your Velvet Underground-inspired banana suit and get ready for work.
