American Horror Story: Freak Show is easily one of the most highly anticipated TV shows of the Fall 2014 TV season; now, the FX network -- which runs the show -- is launching a costume design show for fans to celebrate the 4th season of the show. If you're a fan of horror fashion or creative fan art in general, this contest represents a great opportunity to put your design chops to the test and get some recognition for it.
Fans are invited to come up with highly unique, original and of course freaky costumes inspired by American Horror Story, and encouraged to submit their sketches and descriptions of their design inspiration on the American Horror Story Design Contest website. The contest implores with fans to "show us the darkest corners of your creativity and submit your AHS-inspired costume design to our panel of judges."
The costume designs will be judged by the show's head costume designer Lou Eyrich, designer Christian Siriano of Project Runway fame and FX's marketing president Stephanie Gibbons.
The winning designer will receive a $5,000 cash prize and will see their costume featured in a special American Horror Story-inspired photo-shoot.
