The cast of "Downton Abbey" Level of difficulty: Difficult
PBS's World War I-era drama is a runaway ratings hit, but its elaborate period costumes might be difficult to replicate so soon before Halloween. If you're a true-blue "Downton" fan, though, why not hit the local vintage store or costume shop, and see if you can become an honorary Crawley for a day? Guys will need fancy single-breasted suits with wide lapels (Lord Grantham) or military dress uniforms (Matthew); gals will need lacy Edwardian dresses (Lady Mary) or, if you're going all out, a heavy coat and a huge feather hat (the Dowager Countess). And the more bling, the better; you are the upper crust, after all.
