With Halloween a few weeks away, it's time to start planning your costume. Instead of being a black cat for the fifth year in a row, or buying that revealing dolphin costume at your local store, why not go for something different? Go as your favorite designer, blogger or fashion editor.
Most fashion personalities have cultivated a look and wear a uniform while they are in the public eye -- and now it's our time to capitalize! Throw on your boyfriend's suit, add a little bronzer and go as Valentino. Or put on a turban, some overalls and a chastity belt and go as Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller. How about grabbing some fur and a floppy hat and impressing your friends with your Rachel Zoe getup?
Click through the slideshow to see 13 original costume ideas (modeled by HuffPost staffers) that will leave you the center of attention this October 31st.
