To celebrate the upcoming digital, Blu-ray, and DVD release of Poor Things, io9 attended a party inspired by the Emma Stone-starring film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. The cinematic soiree was delightfully twisted, just like the parties Stone’s Fraken-creation Bella Baxter enjoys—complete with immersive actors portraying her role.

The mini-gala, held in Los Angeles, CA, showcased the Oscar-nominated film’s costumes, both on the wandering Bellas as well as displayed on mannequins, allowing attendees to get a close-up look at Holly Waddington’s fanciful designs. To cap the night, Dancing with the Stars’ Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson performed their take on the film’s memorable duet between Stone and Mark Ruffalo’s characters.

Check out this gallery for a peek at the night’s fun, filled with vibes evoking the unique world of Lanthimos’ film.
