An informal survey tells me that Halloween is either a fashion lover’s favorite holiday or his worst nightmare. For those I know who already costume themselves for the theater of everyday life, Halloween is just another day. The more timid fashion lovers among us relish the opportunity to go full on, hardcore. A medium for both: runway inspired costumes. Here are some of our favorite looks from five cosplay friendly designers.
