Who dresses up better than West Hollywood? Join the wigged-out throngs on Santa Monica Boulevard for the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival . Who will be popular this year? Sarah Palins, drag and not, should be roaming free range along the boulevard. I am going as a mariachi paparazzi — basically an excuse to wear a really big hat and carry a toy squirt camera filled with tequila. If a WeHo elf hands you a bracelet, that means you’re dressed outlandish/creatively enough for the costume contest finals!
