COVID-Friendly Halloween Costume Ideas

By Haniya Ghazi //

Halloween is just around the corner, but with that comes the sad reality that it’s Halloween plus COVID-19. Even though it won’t necessarily be the same, here are some fun costume ideas that are pandemic-friendly. 


Doctor costume

A doctor is the most obvious costume for a mask-friendly costume. It helps you keep your mask on the entire time because it is part of the costume, but it is also a fun costume in itself! Spice it up and turn it into a “creepy” doctor by adding splashes of fake blood, or for girls, you can even be a nurse! This is a great easy costume to stay within COVID-19 guidelines. 


Ninja costume

This is not only a cute and fun costume, but a great costume to pair a black mask with. The face covering is an essential part of this costume anyway, and a great way to stay safe and respectful on Halloween. Wear an all-black hoodie and black pants, tie a red scarf to your waist, and throw on your black mask, and you’re ready to go!
