    26 Face Masks That'll Double As Halloween Costumes This October

    Thank you, Halloween – you are the mask-friendly holiday we didn't know we needed.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Spooky season is here! And what could be spookier than ghosts and goblins? Not following the CDC's guidelines recommending people wear nonmedical face coverings in public! Gotta wear them, even on Halloween, folks.

    CDC

    These guidelines are in place primarily to protect people around you from droplets you might expel through breathing, talking, or coughing; even people without symptoms may still be at risk of spreading the virus. The masks don't have to be anything fancy — the primary functions are that they are breathable, cover your nose and mouth, and are tight enough that they don't leave loose space for droplets to escape. Ideally, face coverings will also be multi-layered — and even *better*, could include a pocket for a filter. You can check out BuzzFeed's guide to the CDC's face covering recommendations, which include answers to all your burning mask questions as well as tutorials for how to make your own!
