Forget ill-fitting, odd-smelling rental costumes from the Halloween store. This year, we have a few ideas that are spooky, stylish, and guaranteed conversation starters.
First up: Take everyone’s favorite serial killer, and add everyone’s favorite party favor. (The potent serum in Dexter’s patented syringes is clear—but we thought blood-red felt more appropriate for the occasion.) Instead of a rather expected plastic knife as a prop, pack this utilitarian Igloo cooler—it’ll match your look while keeping your shots cold. Just make sure you bring enough for everyone. Find recipes here, and everything else you’ll need below.

“To most designers a henley is a henley, but not to Todd Snyder. He’s found ways to do these really masculine pieces but make them his own and make them original.
“The placket and collar are trimmed with chambray fabric, which creates some visual interest at the front, and turns the piece into something that looks as good under a jacket as it does by itself. Snyder’s touches take something born in underwear culture and turn it into a fashion staple.”
—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
