Twilight pair Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart spotted hand in hand as they go incognito in transparent masks at Halloween party

It's rare to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart putting on a public display of affection – even before the cheating scandal which recently engulfed them.
But under the cover of bizarre transparent mask, the Twilight pair let down their guard and were spotted holding hands at a Halloween party on Wednesday night.
In an apparent sign they are growing closer following Kristen's 'indiscretion' with married director Rupert Sanders this summer, the couple were caught in a tactile moment while attending a bash at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
I want to hold your hand: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson got tactile as they held hands at a Halloween party in Hollywood on Wednesday night
It was a fleeting glimpse of
affection, however, as the pair spent most of the night avoiding being
photographed together, with the couple stepping apart whenever a camera
was in sight.
As for their Halloween costumes, R-Patz and Stewart didn't exactly pull out all the stops.
True to form, they made understated appearances in casual clothing – with only their masks serving as an attempt to dress up.
Not all that spooky: The pair donned see-through plastic masks at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in LA
Freaky: The pair went incognito in the masks but didn't make the effort with a festive costume
Thriller: Revellers are seen enjoying the festivities put on at the cemetery where there was a fun fair and themed attractions
Stewart, 22, wore wearing leggings and a green jacket, while
R-Patz, 26, opted for his customary jeans and cap.
The couple – who appear to have
reconciled in the wake of Stewart's cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders
earlier this year – were joined at the event by other VIPs, including Minka Kelly and Chris Evans and Katy Perry.
Sanders and wife Liberty Ross,
meanwhile, made more of an effort with their costumes when they ventured
out for a spot of trick or treating with their two children around
their local neighbourhood in Los Angeles.

While Sanders was sporting a bullet wound to the head, Liberty was clad in a tight black catsuit.
On Thursday night Kristen and Robert will appear in a joint interview that will be broadcast
on music television channel MTV in the U.S. and on the internet. It will
include an exclusive clip from their latest film, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
In recent weeks the couple have made a series of outings together, and appear to have got their relationship back on track.
However, some critics have suggested
their reunion is more of a 'showmance' as they prepare to hit the red
carpet together later this month for the Los Angeles world premiere of their movie.
It is understood they will appear together at the Hollywood premiere of the film on November 12, before embarking on red carpet
appearances around the world.
Getting their freak on: The packed out grounds included a host of celebs in disguise, including Chris Evans ad Minka Kelly, seen with her back turned wearing a blonde wig and animal print
Revellers: R-Patz was carrying a werewolf mask under his arm, but was not seen wearing it
Keeping their distance: Despite their disguise, the couple stepped apart when they spotted the cameras
An industry source in LA told the Daily Mail: 'This has come as a big surprise. New
Line [the film studio behind Twilight] feel that a joint TV appearance
will ease the impact on fans of their red carpet debut but not diminish
'In recent days Rob and Kristen have really shown their friendship is
back on track. They are comfortable around one another and that
inspired this brave move.
'Where they go as a couple after this still has to be seen.'
Hand in hand: Minka was clad in a garish ensemble, while Chris decided against fancy dress

year, made more of an effort with his outfit while out trick or treating
with his children and wife Liberty Ross, who was wearing a catsuit
