It’s almost Halloween, and while you’re busy dressing up like your horror movie heroes, they’ll be busy dressing up like you. That’s sort of the conceit behind the highly entertaining series from London-based illustrator David Murray. The set of painstakingly rendered drawings features horror icons like Freddie, Leatherface rocking Fall 2014 items from some of our favorite some our favorite designers: Michael Myers looks cozy-fresh in his Dries Van Noten jacket, while Jason is making a bold statement in his Hood By Air sweater.

Murray, who hails from Ireland, told us he was looking to create a series of drawings that appealed to a wider audience. “The big green oversized double breasted coat from Juun.J’s Fall ’14 collection Inspired the Frankenstein idea and I just took it from there,” he says. “My style of drawing is quite tedious and time consuming so it’s important that I give myself a subject that I find exciting and stimulating, a subject that keeps me interested. I’ve always been a fan of horror movies so drawing the likes of Freddy, Jason, and Mike Myers made the process a bit more entertaining.”
