Becka Diamond, Ilirjana Alushaj, Coco Young and Maia Wojcik give ASOS a look at their horrifically-hot Halloween costumes past and
pending. By New York editor Indigo Clarke.
Downtown NYC It-Girl Becka Diamond is known as much for her signature post-punk noir style as for her DJing skills - when she takes over the turntables, you're in for a rockin' (and fashion-forward) good time.

"As far as personal style, I love certain things...
My favorite designers are Pamela Love, Rick Owens, Katie Gallagher, Givenchy and Reece Hudson. My style icons are Nina Hagen, Cosey Fanni Tutti and David Bowie."
"Halloween is the most epic night in New York. Witches, pumpkins and candy corn! Everyone embraces their dark side. I love to see everyone in their individual creative costumes and my songs to party to are 'Monster Mash' by Boris Pickett and 'Time Warp' from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
"I dressed as Edie Sedgwick for years. It was easy: just tease the hair, wear black tights and a striped t-shirt, wear false eyelashes. Last year, though, I was Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, complete with horns and ravens and green skin! This year, I am going as Anna Nicole Smith. I love an iconic blonde. A great costume is made by embodying the spirit of your character!"
Self-described global fashion and design talent scout Maia Wojcik’s boy-meets-girl style is totally at one with the downtown NYC vibe – perfect for when she hits the decks at all the coolest parties.

"When I’m not dressing crazy for Halloween, I wear a lot of
I'm really into Scandinavian brands like Henrik Vibskov, Won Hundred, Wood Wood and ACNE. My style icons are the Olsen Twins. They're brilliant entrepreneurs, and they look incredible all the time."
"I love Halloween because there is a sinister feeling of mischief in the air. There are seemingly no consequences for your actions... since you are not yourself!
"When I was nearly three, I dressed as Ernie for Halloween, and my mom made the costumes. We went to a Halloween costume contest for kids, but we didn't win - no one believed those stunners were homemade.
"This year I will very likely be dressed as a man. Over the last three years I have been Plaxico Burress, a viking warrior and then Richard Simmons."
Ilirjana has her fingers in endless pies - she edits online magazine The Pop Manifesto and helms NYC bands Apache Beat and Typical Girls, while DJing up a storm at the SoHo and TriBeCa Grand among other super-cool haunts around town.

“My personal style changes, but I love wearing oversized things with really fitted clothes, so an XL men's anorak with a mini floral dress and
Oh and I love a lot of designers... Chloé, Hannah Marshall, Y'OH, Nike, SUNO and Rachel Antonoff. I don't have just one style icon, I have many. Women like Cosey Fanni Tutti, Vivienne Westwood, Linder Sterling and obviously Winona Ryder."
"Halloween is cool because you can pretend you're a kid: eat loads of candy, dress ridiculously without negative comment and run around scaring people. How can you not love that?
"There was a period of three years where I dressed as various characters Winona Ryder has played. I love her! My Beetlejuice outfit was the best, but Edward Scissorhands and Heathers were good too. Would've obviously worked better though if I had Johnny Depp or Christian Slater to accessorise! A great costume is either original or a replication – and if you can do both you are a genius. As for my Halloween costumes, I always say I will plan early but never do. This year I could continue my "Ryder Series".... always a good back up plan."
By day the gorgeous Coco Young is a jet-setting fashion model and artist's muse to the likes of Ryan McGinley, by night she moves to NYC's beat moonlighting as a DJ.

"If I had all the money in the world, I don't think I would shop any more or dress any differently.
or my one dirty old T-shirt with holes that I stole from a boyfriend years ago. My style icon is my mom in the '90s."
"In New York, Halloween really is a night for people to let loose and party. It's definitely an 'adult'-oriented event. I grew up in France and although Halloween is starting to become popular there, it is perceived as a day just for kids to go trick or treating.
"Last year, I arrived in New York from Europe on the day of Halloween. I had been modelling and felt like I had been made to seem so 'pretty' and 'clean' that I decided to dress up as a dirty homeless man. It was a very easy costume to put together at the last minute – all I had to do was borrow a few things from my boyfriend, wear a wig and put plastic bags over my Isabel Marant shoes. I think the best Halloween costumes are thought of and created at the last minute."
