Our last museum party of 2019, End-Of-Summer Camp is THIS FRIDAY! We’re so excited to take you all to camp and see those amazing outfits you have planned. Wait. You don’t have an outfit picked out yet? You’re cutting it a little close here, but that’s okay. We’ve put together some of our favorite David Levinthal inspired outfits to help you get the creative juices flowing.

Before you even get to your outfit planning – the real question is: Have you bought your End-Of-Summer Camp tickets yet? They’re moving fast and we don’t want you to miss out – so click here to grab your open bar tickets now! Rumor around camp is that prices will go up on Friday, so now is your last chance to get them at their lowest price!

2019 is the yee-haw year, which fits in perfectly with the cowboys of American Myth & Memory. Sure you can throw a cowboy hat on, and call your friends “pardners,” but the secret to any good cowboy look is the fringe. Our favorite masked cowboy, Orville Peck, shows you that there is no such thing as too much fringe when planning your perfect party cowboy look.

Camp BYT may be strictly BYOL (bring-your-own-lake,) but that shouldn’t stop you from showing off your favorite swimwear looks! Modeling for David Levinthal himself, Barbie and her friends rock some incredibly fashionable one-pieces.

Baseball uniforms aren’t the most fashionable outfits, but with a little creativity you can definitely make anything work! Follow Rita Ora’s lead with this crop top and fishnet look to say, “Yeah, I know what sports are, but I also like to party!”


Are you too cool for camp? Cowboys not really your thing? Let Wet Hot American Summer-era Paul Rudd be your inspiration for the bad boy of Camp BYT. From the bandana sticking out of your pocket, to the sunglasses that don’t seem to come off, this getup will have everyone at the party staring and saying, “Woah, they’re like, cool.”


If swimsuit fashion isn’t your forte, Barbie has plenty of other looks for you to be inspired by. Sometimes a classic pink outfit is the way to go, and our favorite larger-than-life sized Barbie doll, Citrine, shows you can never have too much pink! Pro tip: find the biggest bow you can to assert your dominance over the other girls.
