New York Fashion Week is known for serving up consistently cool hair, makeup, mani, and (obviously) style inspiration. And, believe it or not, it's also a prime source for Halloween costume inspiration.

Sure, many of the season's most out-there, artistic, and just-plain-bonkers beauty looks might not translate to everyday life. But when it comes to October 31st, they could be your ticket to a seriously cool and on-trend beauty look. This past week, the ideas ran the gamut from social media and pop culture to politics and play dolls — offering something for just about everyone. (And did we mention these were hand-drawn by some of the best artists in the business?)

Click through our roundup of the coolest show looks, then let us know which one you'll be gathering inspiration from this All Hallow's Eve.

Virgin Galactic Flight Attendant

Pair cotton-candy-blue lipstick with orange-tinged skin and a retro suit and you'll match Thom Browne’s psychedelic show. His inspiration was '60s sunbathers, but we like to think of it as a space-age flight attendant — who clearly got too close to the sun.

80’s Club Girl

If we had to choose our favorite #tbt moment, it’d be the electric-bright eye shadows and bowl-cut ‘dos at Jeremy Scott. Just looking at this confirms it's going to be a fun night.
