Halloween Costume Shopping During COVID-19

Online Shopping

October 25, 2020 · 6 min read

Halloween is a chance for children and adults alike to dress up and spend a night pretending to be someone else. However, figuring out what Halloween costumes to shop for during COVID can be a challenge.

According to U.S. CDC guidelines, you should wear a mask along with your costume to make sure you are protected. Furthermore, it should be a cloth mask, not a costume mask – a costume mask cannot provide you with protection against the virus.

This means that Halloween lovers will need to be extra creative during Halloween 2020 to make sure they celebrate creatively and safely.

If you’re wondering what you can dress up as for your Halloween 2020 event, don’t worry – we have some ideas for you!

Dress Up as a Character:

You can still choose a favorite character to dress up as during the Halloween season. One option you have is to choose a character that already incorporates a mask or other face-covering in their costume. Some ideas you can try include:

Rey from Star Wars

Rey’s scavenger costume from The Force Awakens includes a cloth covering that is supposed to go over the bottom half of her face. Just pull the cloth over your mouth and nose, and you should be good to go!

You can buy and ship this costume from websites like Amazon.

The Invisible Man

This classic movie monster is a great choice for both adults and children to dress up as during Halloween. The bandage face coverings allow you to easily incorporate a mask into the outfit while still keeping it spooky and in the spirit of the season.

Joker from Batman

Looking to keep things a little creepy this Halloween? Consider dressing up as Joker. While a traditional Joker costume does not incorporate a face covering, you can easily find a face mask with his smile instead of having to paint it on. Keep things safe and creative, all in one go!

Woody from Toy Story

If you’re looking for a child-friendly costume, consider a Woody costume. This Toy Story character does not traditionally incorporate a face mask in his costume. However, you can repurpose the bandana to serve as a mask instead of letting it hand around your child’s neck.

Just Add a Face Mask:

One of the best parts of Halloween is that you can dress up as whatever you want to be. However, not all costumes come with an inbuilt face mask, which can make bringing your imagination to light challenging.

Instead of feeling defeated by this, consider adding a face mask to your preferred costume. Even if it’s not strictly part of your planned costume, it allows you to stay safe and bring your imagination to life at the same time.

If you’re ready to add a face mask to any costume, you can also diversify the options at your disposal. With everything that has happened in 2020, consider adding a touch of pop culture to your costume choices. If you’re wondering which costume you can choose that’s quintessentially 2020, we’ve got some options for you!

Hand Sanitizer

It’s one of the most in-demand items in 2020 and keeps flying off the grocery and drug store shelves as soon as it’s back in stock. It’s also a funny costume idea that’s sure to bring a smile to people’s faces when they see you dressed up as a bottle of hand sanitizer. You can even dispense sanitizer as part of the outfit!
