These couture costume editorials are theatrical and whimsical in their aesthetic. Celebrating the dressed-up spirit of the Halloween holiday, the fashion examples are nothing short of striking.

This fashion image list highlights costumed attire, masked accessories and other theatrical elements that transform models into unforgettable characters.

Couture costume editorials oppose tradition and aim to create a fantasy for fashion readers. The whimsical element of high fashion elevates it to a more conceptual level than wearable attire one may see on the street or on the pages of a traditional retail catalog.

These costumed fashion examples are influenced by the spirit of Halloween and embrace the idea of dressing-up. The images transform their subjects into unrecognizable versions of themselves much like a disguise would on Halloween night.
