Trick-or-treating might be cancelled, but that doesn't mean Halloween is!

While everyone is stuck at home due to the ongoing pandemic, many people have found Zoom and other types of video calls to be a great way to stay connected to family and socialize with friends. Now, as quarantine drags on into the fall season, some of us are going to have to get a little more creative with how we celebrate the holidays over these calls.

One way to do that is by making Halloween Zoom costumes. You can take an advantage of the platform to frame the perfect costumes for Zoom meetings. There's an idea on this list for everyone: lazy costumes for Zoom parties, funny costumes for Zoom meetings, and plenty of other creative ideas. There are talking heads, TV characters, and more - but one thing all of these social distancing Halloween costumes have in common is that they'll be sure to get you and your friends into the spooky season spirit!

    A Weather Person

    This one is clever and useful if you decide to use a weather forecast screen grab from your own area as a background. Go for a temperature map or the five day forecast for maximum effect, and don't forget to wear a fashionable dress or suit.

      Now that we're all living in a simulation, working, socializing, and surviving over video chat, those lines of falling code in the background will look nothing out of the ordinary. Go ahead and don a sleek, black, high-collared trench coat and some sunglasses. Maybe if you become the chosen one you can get us out of this mess.

        Whether you're a Dwight, Jim, or Pam, your coworkers and other Office fans will certainly appreciate this perfect Zoom background. Now you can work from home and be in the office at the same time. Feel free to dress up as any character from the show or just be yourself if you've got some grievances of your own to air.

          This talking head icon is a blast from the past. Advertised as "the first computer-generated TV personality" when his show premiered back in the '80s, there's perhaps no better way to put a nostalgic spin on our necessitated computer-only communications of the now. 

          For this look, you'll need a suit jacket, tie, and a pair of sunglasses. You may also want to slick back your hair or grab a neon-blonde wig, and, to go the extra mile, try adopting his trademark glitchy stutter. Finally, just set your zoom background to those neon patterns and you're good to go.
