Project Runway Makes Halloween Costumes Work

They've had a postal uniform challenge. A pageant dress challenge. So why not a Halloween challenge?

The task? Design a fashionable Halloween costume that anyone could whip up this weekend.

The designers? Contestants from the first three seasons of Project Runway.

Below, their sketches and suggestions for get-ups that even Michael Kors would like.

So if you really want to look "in" while you're out celebrating Halloween, pick one of the Runway patterns. And then make it work!

If you decide to make any of these costumes, upload your photos to Flickr and tag them: NPRHalloween. We will pick the best ones next week to feature on!
