Tips For a Fun Virtual Halloween

Although there seems good potential for the creative use of masks in costumes, for the most part people stayed at home, and certainly won‘t be knocking on strangers‘ doors or congregating for large parties. Like so many other things in 2020 that have become virtual, it looks like this year‘s Halloween was a largely digital affair.

Halloween Games From Your Bedroom
There‘s no shortage of Halloween themed games that can be played over Zoom, Skype, or other video call software of your choice. How about a virtual pumpkin carving contest, where each participant gets a pumpkin in advance and then proceeds to modify it as best they can while on camera. You could set a time limit, and then everyone votes on the best at the end! You could also try some virtual haunted house tours, or just resort to good old video games. If you have a VR headset, VR horror games are some of the best ways to raise the heartrate on Halloween night, and many of them support co-op play so you and some friends can scare yourselves silly together.

Get Dressed Up for the Webcam
Coming up with an outfit and getting dressed up is half the fun of Halloween, and just because it’s a virtual party doesn‘t mean you still can‘t have that fun. In fact, dressing up for a webcam actually has a few advantages over dressing up for an in-person gathering. You can put filters over the webcam footage to create a bit of atmosphere, or better still, create a whole set to match your outfit (or at least use a few props). The possibilities are endless. And who‘s to say you have to attend the virtual party from your bedroom, or even from indoors. Using a solution like the PowerStudio 300, you can hook up everything you need outdoors and host a spooky session from your garden, complete with shadowy tree branches blowing in the breeze. With the creative use of lighting (also powered by the PowerStudio), you could create a far more atmospheric scene than recording from your living room or bedroom.

Halloween Deals
However you organize your virtual Halloween, your devices and equipment will have to be powered on and fully charged. This Halloween AUKEY has deals on some of our most popular charging products. The sleek and slim Basix Slim 10000mAh with USB-C fast charging can be picked up for just $13.99, while the ultra-high-spec Basic Pro Wireless Power Bank is down to just $45.99. And if you‘re looking to power a MacBook Pro during your virtual Halloween fun, the Omnia Mix3 90W is the perfect choice, allowing to power the laptop and fast-charge an iPhone 12 at the same time.
