If you’re gay in Atlanta, and you are, you know that one of the sure bets for awesome Halloween costumes and sky-high prizes is Blake’s on the Park. This year didn’t disappoint.

With a promise to throw open its doors to all comers and sling the drinks like tomorrow’s Day of the Dead, the bar stayed true to its annual traditions: Boys, booze and beats. Some $2,000 in cash and prizes were awards for the scary, funny, crazy costume queens who matched the bar’s excitement level in their looks.
