Halloween is the time to wear unusual eye-catching costumes. How about getting your creative-wear ideas from these outstanding Asian dramas with fabulous costumes?

1.  Ruler: Master of the Mask - This impressive production isn't the only drama out there starring characters wearing masks, but it has a unique story about a young crown prince who is brought up to always wear a mask to hide his face from being recognized by vicious enemies. His double also wears a mask. What happens when no one can tell the difference between the real prince and the fake?

2.  Lost Love in Times - The most recent fantasy romance out of China stars a huge ensemble cast wearing plenty of fabulous costumes (and hairdos) for ideas. The Grand Sorceress Qing Chen (Cecilia Liu), who falls in love with a prince in a forbidden love, certainly has a gorgeous wardrobe. I'd also like to point out that all the other ladies from the sorceress clan also fly around in leaps and bounds in amazing costumes.

3.  Wu Xin - The Monster Killer - The clothing design from this supernatural period drama is based on a unique era in China in the early 20th century, when a new republic was established after the fall of the last dynasty. The clothing depicted in the drama were post-monarchy and transitioning to modern age. The drama, starring a relatively unknown cast lead by a brand new leading man, Elvis Han, was a big surprise hit. Some fans even turned the main characters into anime drawings!

5. Goblin: The Lonely and Great God - In the chilling, mystical world inhabited by not just an enigmatic Goblin, but also a handsome Grim Reaper, you'll find plenty of ideas from supernatural beings. One memorable scene that jumps into mind is when the Goblin, as played by international star Gong Yoo, is revealed to show the burden he carries. (Warning: It's based on special effects. Don't try it with a real sword.) 

We also have a handsome Grim Reaper:
