Halloween is an aesthetic based around the theme of Halloween or creepy things. Some ideas may include, but are not limited to: skeletons, bats, jack-o-lanterns, witches, vampires, and spiders.


Visual

Halloween visuals invoke imagery of vampires, skeletons, bats, witches, zombies, spiders, Jack-O-Lanterns, ghosts/haunted buildings, abandoned buildings with a creepy vibe to them; Halloween can either play on the dark/macabre or the campy/goofy sides of Halloween.

Fashion

Halloween fashion can either make nods to Halloween aesthetics or can be made up of Halloween costumes of some sort, which gives it an element of Cosplay to Halloween fashion. It can also include baggy t-shirts, nightgowns, long/maxi skirts, sweaters (particularly large crew necks), baggy/ mom jeans, dirty shoes/Converse/boots/etc., socks (any kind, usually frilly ones though), necklaces (usually antique pendants, lockets, etc.), clothing items that display skeletons, ghosts, ghouls, and other "spooky" figures, and makeup can consist of dull colors like black, grey, blue, or bright colors like red eyeshadow or blush on the nose to give face a "sickly" effect
