Dark Delights – Spooky Style

October 28, 2009

The time is fast approaching. It’s our annual night of party-hopping and candy-groping, and wouldn’t you know it? A virtual feast of dark treats and magical fashion suddenly appears right before our eyes! If you haven’t gotten your haunting ensemble pulled together yet, here are some images that might scare up some inspiration.

Lucky for us, the recent runways were full of dark fashion. Couture or costume? From zombies, vampires and ghostly spirits to a Gothic Alice in Wonderland, the looks were all represented:

Speaking of, while we’re anticipating the March 2010 release of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, we can also look forward to his retrospective at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Love these spooky images from Harper’s Bazaar:
