New York’s web3 faithful flocked to Brooklyn this week with creative costumes out in full force to celebrate Halloween with the AllShips community.

The scene at Roberta’s Pizza was a whirlwind of shared pizza boxes, decorated cookies, and friendly chatter. AllShips founder and artist Dave Krugman delivered a rousing speech dressed in full pirate regalia followed by a well-received performance by singer/songwriter Ollie Chanin and an upbeat DJ set by Bones.

The crowd was eclectic and creative, featuring notable artists like Fewocious, Oveck, and Ben Skaar alongside top collectors like Vincent Van Dough. Given the number of photographers in the AllShips community, it was no surprise to see ubiquitous cameras documenting the night’s revelries and costume highlights.

Photographer Bosh Jerns was on hand to capture all of the festivities for nft now. Check out the highlights below.

Photographer Gabriela Gabrielaa stole the show with her elaborate Mad Hatter costume, offering nft now co-founder and CEO Matt Medved one of her colorful teacups to accompany his Vinnie Hager ensemble. Meanwhile, Vincent Van Dough made the rounds in a striking Spongebob Squarepants costume flanked by Benny “Redbeard” Gross and his wife.
