High up on the Twenty-Second floor of an apartment complex in Mumbai, Karan & Leon of Karleo hosted an intimate Halloween party for their close friends and family.

The duo had taken great pains to decorate their apartment with spooky cobwebs, jack-o-lanterns, candles and even miniature coffins.

In fact, right at the entrance to Karan’s home was a staged crime scene with candles (lit in memory of the victim) and a huge cobweb to add that eerie touch.

And if that was not enough to scare the bejesus out of you, Karan & Leon ensured the food on the table was also as ghoulish as one can imagine.

Cookies in the shape of a witch’s fingers, an “intestine” cake and scary eyeballs placed in a plate of kebabs were the highlights on the table. Even the punch which was served from a tall glass tumbler had eyeballs floating in it, too.

Of course, all the guests took great efforts to keep up with the theme and were game enough to come in costume.

I had decided to go as Uncle Fester from the Addams Family while stylist Srishti Kumar dressed up perfectly as Wednesday Addams and actress Guunjan Manaktala channeled Morticia Addams.

TV superstar Vikkas Manaktala managed to get the Wolverine look on point (with a cigar) while host Leon Vaz opted to dress up as Jon Snow from the hugely popular Game Of Thrones series.

Of course, there were the odd assortment of vampires and ghouls and from among the girls, we loved Mariette Valsan’s Frida Kahlo costume.

Take a look at some of the pix from the party:
