"For this Halloween inspired series, I wanted to put a high fashion spin on these popular horror movie characters," Hayden told BuzzFeed.

For the series, he also took some of the villains’ genders and "flipped them to womenswear for a fun and fresh take."

The aim is for the illustrations to be "scary, but fashion", and it's clear to see that the effect has worked.

Hayden, who's been drawing since he was three years old and is self-taught, says that a quick sketch usually takes him 10-20 minutes, but a complete illustration with colour takes around an hour.
