In years past a costume with a mask may have seemed excessive or only for those who were confident and brave enough to be tasked with yet another thing to keep track of. However that does not seem to be the case this year. Unless you are having a Halloween party over Zoom, or in a small, intimate, socially-distanced gathering, you may need to make alterations for your costume to include a face mask to prevent COVID-19.

Tiger King seems like a hazy dream with all that has happened this year. But for just a moment in time it was what brought many together. Virtually, of course. While Joe may be exotic… Joe can also be kinda basic. Pair a neutral colored plaid button down with jeans, boots, and a ball cap. Finalize the look with a tiger mask and a few feline fun facts.

Alexander Hamilton rose to popularity this year when the broadway play was released on Disney Plus after we had binge watched virtually every other show known to man… To recreate the popular movie character, pair a white button down with a blue jacket, cream slacks, and if possible a vest. Top the look off with a neutral color mask.
