These 10 Classic Halloween Costumes Are PERFECT For Your Pandemic Costume Party

It's finally fall, and you know what that means: it's Halloween Season. Time to dress up and eat more candy than you meant to. But in 2020 things are different, as COVID-19 does not take holidays off.

Lucky for you, here are ten costumes that are both cute and careful.

Or simply add a mask to any costume you're feeling, and own it because being COVID-safe is always more important than a costume. Now, remember — drink through a straw under your mask, try to social distance, and look super cute this Halloween!

1. Space Cowgirl


This is a classic, super cute costume that only requires a dollar store cowboy hat and your most intergalactic clothing (anything neon or silver is always perfect). The COVID-friendly secret? The classic cowgirl bandana!

IMPORTANT: Bandanas themselves don't protect from the virus, so make sure you use a bandana-patterned mask, or where one under

2. Superhero


Of course, you can't forget the easiest mask-wearing costume: a superhero. With a mask already being a staple of the costume, simply pick a hero who wears a mask, like Spider-Man, or add simply one to hero without one.

It's cute, classic, and COVID-friendly. What's not to love!

3. Mummies

Distributor Kaoskaki

Cute, cheap, and easily conceals a mask - what's not to love? For this classic, go to the dollar store for toilet paper and paper towels, and simply wrap yourself up until you look how you want.

For masks, simply wrap the costume up around your mouth to conceal your mask, or invest in a white mask to match the look.

4. Nurse


Whether going sexy or scrubs, a nurse's costume is simple to just add a mask to while staying in character. This is a perfect way to be cute and COVID safe.

5. Purge

The Light Up Mask

For this hit look, grab some cute black clothes and layer it with an oversized white button-up painted with fake blood. Add plastic weapons and order a purge mask here.

To top off the look. Since the mask is light and plastic, it will lift slightly off your face, so simply layer a COVID-mask underneath without worrying about overheating or contamination.

6. Football Player


You can go all out with a football uniform, wear a jersey as an oversized top, or crop one and wear it with shorts for a shorter look.

Simply add socks, tennis shoes and a helmet to conceal your mask. Bonus points if you have a whistle.

7. Twister

Hair Out of Place

This costume is clever, customizable to your comfort level, and easy for any year. Simply wear all-white and stick cut-out red, blue, yellow and green circles to you.

Don't forget to stick one on your mask, or write "Twister" in red across it if you won't use it again!

8. Storm Cloud


This one is cheap, easy, and barely needs any tweaking to be COVID-ready. Simply cover some old cheap clothes in cotton, and do the same to a cheap or DIY mask.

If you're feeling extra crafty, get some cheap, battery-powered string lights and thread them through the "cloud" for a lightning look.

9. Spy


Simply dress in all-black for this sleek look. Combat boots, thick belts, and any sort of spy gear looking items you can think of will elevate this, and adding a black mask simply makes sense.

What spy would want their face revealed?

10. Plague Doctor


Of course, if you really want to embrace the 2020 spirit, the only choice is plague doctor.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
