Halloween has always been a thirsty time for humans, but this year, human-on-ghost love went viral. In addition to headline-making ghost polygamy, the season’s trendiest costume may have been that of American Horror Story: Apocalypse’s Michael Langdon, a half-human, half-ghost played by Cody Fern. As Halloween inspiration and an emergent cult icon, Langdon’s appeal seems to stem largely from his distinct look, as the Twitter user @fructosepapi pointed out:  

Langdon's look hinges on flaxen locks, a mysteriously ageless face, nu-goth style, and, perhaps most importantly, burgundy eyeshadow. Luckily, this new take on the classic thirst trap aligns well with current trends across fashion and beauty. From male makeup to the goth wave brought on by the Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer shows, it seems that the spell Fern's Langdon has cast on the culture isn't going anywhere soon.
