Halloween During a Pandemic

Halloween During a Pandemic
Covid has certainly changed the way in which we navigate our daily lives. Holidays are no exception. Halloween looks different during a worldwide pandemic, but that doesn't mean you can't still celebrate and get into the spirit. I actually argue that, now more than ever, we could all use a little fun to break up the monotony of quarantine. 
Virtual parties will be the main event this year. As is the nature of video conferencing, your face and head will be the main feature. This is a great opportunity to practice all those rad makeup tutorials that are saved on your Instagram. 
I'm thinking something along the lines of Ezra Miller at the Met Gala. Something really mind-bending. The costume itself doesn't need to be anything in particular but Miller did such a beautiful job at pairing masculine and feminine details into something so mesmerizing, you couldn't look away. 
If you would like to be in the spirit, but aren't prepared to fully commit to spending hours painting eyes on your face, simple accessories may be the way to go. The Le Felin headband is a classic and easily recognizable so no costume explaining will be necessary. And, bonus, it doesn't completely ruin your hair for when you need to rush to hop on a Zoom meeting with your boss. 
Not interested in living the old conundrum of all dressed up but nowhere to go? I get it. Quarantine was difficult during the bright, warm days of summertime, but fall is made for staying in and getting cozy. I'm a big lover of a good book, hot cup of tea, and some soft background music. A thunderstorm is ideal, but that can't be controlled, unfortunately. As someone who has (amazingly) never seen The Shining, I'm spending the month of October reading Stephen King's classic. Honestly, I'm just tired of never understanding all the references. 
If you're more of a social creature, you could plan a scary movie marathon viewing party with friends. You can set up a Zoom or Facetime session so you can enjoy watching each other jump in fright. You'll need cute and comfy pjs if you're going to spend hours and hours on the couch. My go-to is Eberjey's Gisele Tuxedo PJ. It's so soft and stretchy. I can eat candy all night long and not feel uncomfortably restrained. 
Wishing you the spookiest Halloween! Be safe and have fun.
