As Halloween approaches, it’s important to celebrate safely. With that said, here are some costume ideas that pair well with masks.
Since nurses and doctors commonly have to wear face masks, styling a paper face mask or medical-grade face mask with a doctor or nurse costume makes sense. Costume pieces from Spirit Halloween While most superheroes do not wear face masks, some like the Black Panther have full-face coverings, so a mask can be worn underneath or not at all, depending on how the face covering is made. Another option would be to wear a face mask that matches your superhero costume like the Wonder Woman costume and mask above.

Black hat from Amazon, cowboy costume from Party City, red mask from Fashion Nova, pink mask from Amazon, pink hat from Amazon, and cowgirl costume from Party City. A fun way to be both cute and cozy is with these Disney-themed onsies. Masks from PopSugar, Mickey Mouse onesie from Amazon/Party City, Stitch onesie from Amazon, Marie onesie from JCPenny, and Winnie the Pooh onesie from Amazon. A group costume like the Mystery Gang can be completed with masks related to the series or even some that match the characters’ outfits. Scooby-Doo mask from Etsy, Scooby-Doo costume from Party City, Velma costume from Target, Velma mask from Amazon, Shaggy costume from Walmart, Fred costume from JCPenney, Daphne costume from Target, and multi-colored masks from Amazon. One of the most popular costume ideas this year comes from the movie The Purge: Election Year, which pairs perfectly with a mask matching the ones worn in the film.

Whichever costume you choose this Halloween, be sure to add a matching face mask to keep friends and family safe from COVID-19, as well as yourself.
