16 Halloween Costume Ideas with Face Masks for 2020

5 min read


Halloween is already next month, and yeah, (for the thousandth time) it’s definitely not going to look normal this year. No one should really be going door to door for candy or hosting huge parties in light of the ongoing global pandemic (just don’t do it!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun and dress up with your mask for a small get together or to go on a spooky walk around your neighborhood to take in all the decorations.

Just a heads up though, per the CDC: “Do not use a costume mask (such as for Halloween) as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers your mouth and nose and doesn’t leave gaps around your face.” So rather than putting an uncomfortable rubber or plastic mask over your face, just stick with your typical fabric ones for the holiday. These Halloween-themed designs are perfect for the occasion and can really add a lot to your costume, while still keeping you and everyone else safe. Here, 16 Halloween costume ideas with face masks that you can try out in October.

winifred sanderson from ‘hocus pocus’

Hocus Pocus Mask



Fans of the classic Halloween flick will appreciate this Winifred mask. Get a red wig, give yourself two messy buns, throw on a green dress, and you’ll transform into the witch. 


sally from ‘the nightmare before christmas’

Nightmare Before Christmas Face Mask



You can wear this mask on its own, or go all out with Sally-inspired makeup by painting your face blue, drawing on stitches with eyeliner, and getting a long red wig. 


a spooky pumpkin

Pumpkin Face Mask



Turn yourself into a scary pumpkin with this face mask. If you want to go all out, you can give yourself an orange smokey eyeshadow look with a dramatic cat eye.  


a reptile

Emerald Green Croc embossed Mask



Be a cold-blooded reptilian creature with this green croc-embossed mask. You can also add tinted yellow contacts and give yourself matching face paint with drawn on scales if you’re super artistic. 


a tourist

Green Envy Combo

Meji Meji


We all had to cancel our vacations due to COVID (a very necessary precaution!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be a tourist. Don this bucket hat and mask combo, a colorful floral shirt, flip-flops, and cutoffs to make it seem like you’re traveling somewhere this Halloween. 


a hippie

Handmade Floral Face Mask Patterns

A pretty floral mask might seem pretty simple, but you can amp up the boho vibes with braided hair, daisy-like eye makeup, a suede fringed vest, and flares. (Psst, watch this tutorial for some ideas!) 


Beyonce in ‘black is king’

Black AbstractFace Mask



There were So. Many. AMAZING looks in Bey’s “Black Is King” visual album, and a couple of them were black and white like this two-piece blazer and short set or this off-the-shoulder dress. This contrasting abstract mask would go with either if you’re down to recreate any of her jaw dropping ‘fits. 


a leopard

Mindful Masks

Ahh, yes, a classic costume. Except this year be a leopard instead of a regular house cat with a matching mask. Give yourself a standout cat eye and add some ears and you’re done! 


a rainbow

Ice Me Out Mask

Muur Swagg


Who says your Halloween costumes needs to be a specific character or person? Go the abstract route and just be a freakin’ rainbow with a bold face mask and you can do as little or as much as possible. You can add multicolored eyeshadow, tint your hair, or wear something rainbow-inspired to match your face covering. 


outer space

Washable Face Mask



Fun fact: This mask glows in the dark!!! You can add glow-in-the-dark stick ons to the rest of your body to keep with the theme or give yourself a starry makeup look—up to you!


Minnie Mouse

Face Mask, Red with White Polka Dots



Minnie Mouse is basically synonymous with red-and-white dots, and they happen to look pretty dang cute on a mask. Your Disney mouse ears will come in handy for this one too. 


a spiderweb

Fabric Mask Spiderweb Face Mask



There are some different directions you can take with this mask: You can turn your head into a spider by making a headband with eight legs (felt straws are your friend) or you can also use face paint or eyeliner to make the rest of your face look like a web. 


a vampire

Vampire Teeth Face Mask



A dark eyeshadow and fake blood will help you complete this blood-sucking costume. 


a skeleton

Skeleton Face Mask



A skeletal bodysuit is the perfect addition to this bony face mask  to wear for Halloween.  


a pop art painting

Face Mask – Fabric Pop Art Adult Face Mask



Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art is always a go-to costume, and this face mask does a lot of the work for you! Continue the dots with red eyeliner over the rest of your face if you wanna make it cohesive. 


someone from ‘Alien’

Alien Face Hugger Mask



Okay, so this mask is pricey, but it was so amazing I HAD to include. The facehuggers from Alien are frightening lil things, but since they also cover your mouth and nose they’re actually kinda useful?
