Spooky season but make it safe.
Halloween is a little different this year – but it doesn't mean we still can't celebrate. Trick or treating is practically cancelled, Halloween parties are out of the question and heading to your local theatre for a horror movie might not be possible thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, that doesn't mean we can't get our spooky fix whilst keeping safe. So, whether you're jut dressing up for a Halloween movie binge with your immediate social bubble, or planning a killer Zoom shindig, here's a bunch of Halloween costume ideas with masks.
1) Nightmare Before Christmas Mask
Nightmare Before Christmas stans, it's your time! This Jack Skellington–inspired mask even glows in the dark. Be honest, you'll probably end up wearing this beyond Halloween.
2) Mortal Kombat Mask
Megan Thee Stallion and Jordyn Woods were truly ahead of their time. Before we even knew about Miss Rona™, they dressed as two masked Mortal Combat characters for Halloween in 2019. All you need is a simple black mask, sword and co-ordinating outfit. Oh, and don't forget to shout: "FINISH HIM!!" at every available opportunity.
3) Harley Quinn Face Mask
Harley Quinn Halloween costumes had a bit of a moment following the release of Suicide Squad in 2016. But, why not give it a cool 2020 update? This Harley Quinn mask requires minimal effort, all you need is her signature pigtails.
4) Halloween Clown Face Mask
IT proved that there's nothing scarier than a clown, so why not take a little inspo from Penniwise himself for Halloween?
