Emmy-winning season 3 TV costumes from What We Do in the Shadows on display...

To celebrate the start of the spooky season, here's a closer look at the Emmy-winning Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes from the third season of FX's What We Do in the Shadows vampire mockumentary series. Based on Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi's 2014 film of the same name, the series follows the lives of four vampires (and their human familiar) who've been together for hundreds of years in Staten Island. Among their number are Kayvan Novak's 'Nandor the Relentless', the group's self-appointed leader and warrior from the Ottoman Empire, Matt Berry's mischievous British vampire 'Laszlo Cravensworth' and his seductress partner-in-crime 'Nadja' (Natasia Demetriou).

Joe vs. Carole TV costumes on display...

During the COVID-19 pandemic viewers were fascinated by Netflix's Tiger King docu-series, which explored the feud between Carole Baskin, a big-cat rescuer, and Joe Exotic, a Greater Wynnewood Zoo owner and cub-breeder. The Peacock original scripted series further explored these eccentric personalities and their decade-long fight which turned them into lifelong enemies and resulted in an attempted murder. The show is based on the sophomore season of Wondery's "Over My Dead Body" podcast and stars John Cameron Mitchell and Kate McKinnon in the titular roles.

Amelia Gebler was Costume Designer on the Peacock show with Christina Valadakis was Costume Supervisor.

If you're looking for a couple costume this Halloween I still think this oddball duo would make for a great combination (just add a stuffed tiger toy for authenticity).

Russian Doll season 2 TV costumes on display...

Natasha Lyonne returned for a sophomore season of Netflix's mind-bending Groundhog Day comedy, Russian Doll, but this time around the series had a new time travel twist. The hard partying and smoking 'Nadia Vulvokov' found that instead of dying over and over in a time loop, like Charlie Barnett's 'Alan Zaveri' in the first season, in the second season by taking the subway she ended up traveling up and down the timeline in the bodies of her pregnant mother and grandmother tracing her Hungarian heritage. Trying to track down her grandmother's inheritance of 150 gold coins (one that Nadia wears on a necklace), she enlists the help of her friend 'Maxine' (Greta Lee) on an eventful trip to Budapest.
