100 Eerie Macabre Editorials

Editorial Inspiration for Fashionable Halloween Costume Ideas

— September 20, 2012 — Special
These fashionable Halloween costume ideas are suitable for fashionistas who want to draw inspiration from avant-garde editorials.

The eerie motifs of these fashion stories are creepy enough to be inspiration for your hallow's eve outings. Use chic items in your closet to create looks for your costume, such as leather studs and makeup. Perhaps the epitomized example of turning fall fashion into a costume is in 'Perdition Woodland Photography.' W Magazine commissioned photographer Steven Meisel and stylist Edward Enniful to take pieces from the Fall/Winter 2012 runways and create a chillingly eerie visual.

Take note from this and other editorials to create a costume that will make you stand out as both in style with fall trends and tailored perfectly to your Halloween soiree needs.
