How To Wear: 31 Days Of Spooky Attire

Sadly I did not engage in my annual tradition of watching one horror movie a day, every day during the month of October. I didn’t have the time! I’m so sorry! If you missed them in previous years, you can find my 31 Days of Horror in our archives for 2018 and 2017. I’m definitely going to go for it again next year, so stay tuned.

(Although! In the first days of the month, I did watch one beautiful giallo-style horror movie with a cast almost entirely populated by queer characters, and that I highly recommend–Knife + Heart, on Shudder right now.)

So…maybe fill the void with something else, then? I gave it some thought and realized that over the past decade of assembling little fashion collages (see our How To Wear category for more!) so many of them, at least half, probably more, are horror-inspired! How fun would it be to gather up some of my favorites, dust off the cobwebs, and present them here at Haute Macabre? For …31 Days Of Spooky Attire!

A small disclaimer: many of these sets were made using a site that no longer exists. Whereas I used to have a list for every item I included for each ensemble, sadly that is no longer the case and I cannot link to any of the items used. I know–it’s a travesty! Some of them I might remember though, so feel free to leave any questions you might have in the comments and I am happy to try and guess!

  1. These are SO amazing. I miss Polyvore so much. Do you remember who the gown & robe are made by in the second one, Salem’s Lot? I would love to know if you recall them by any chance!!

    1. Oooh, I love that that one caught your eye! For that set I had a specific look in mind that I couldn’t find with contemporary lingerie, so I scoured the internet for vintage/retro/antique peignoirs, and I am pretty sure that’s where I grabbed the robe from, some sort of antique auction site, or maybe even a museum archive. It’s probably something that hasn’t been produced in many, many decades. I am pretty sure that the gown came from Journelle, though I can’t recall the brand, and I probably made that Salem’s Lot set in 2008 or thereabouts, so it’s likely not on the site anymore. https://www.journelle.com/
