Halloween tasks

It’s that time of year again where Halloween parties are organised and finding costumes is on everyone’s to-do list. But if you aren’t organised yet or need a helping hand, we see plenty of people post all kinds of Halloween tasks. Here’s some spooky inspiration!

Halloween make-up

Whether it’s ghoulish zombie make-up or some creative Day Of The Dead face-painting, here are some of our top picks…

Being stuck in the kitchen and serving food during your own party is no way to have a good time. Get an Airtasker to take care of it, so that you can catch up with your friends and hit the dancefloor without a worry!

Halloween Engagement party

Hi.. We require 1 person to assist in preparing and serving finger food for our Halloween Engagement Party.
Services required on SATURDAY 29 OCTOBER from 6pm.
Jobs required in the kitchen are to heat and prepare platters of finger food (supplied), walk among our guests to serve food, clear or re-plate platters, keep kitchen clean and tidy, wash dishes as required.
We have already allocated 1 other person to work in the kitchen and someone to run the bar. Therefore you would accompany another Airtasker.
During the night, 1 of the kitchen staff could float between the kitchen and the bar when the bar seems busy (whilst waiting for food to reheat).
Please note that this will be a fancy dress party.

Halloween is all about looking the part, whether you’re trick or treating with the kids or going to a party – let’s think out of the costume box this year and see how Airtasker can help you!

Make me a Unicorn costume for halloween

Drawing inspiration from this DIY article (it won’t let me post the link, please see “Turn a hoodie into a unicorn costume” article on [Content Moderated] from Oct 18th)

I’m looking for someone to buy the materials and follow the instructions there.

I am a medium size man, so a white hoodie or something might work best. If it matters, I’m going to a party with startups and am playing on the industry term of “unicorn” as a successful startup company

I would like to have the costume dropped off at my office by 5:00, and I’d like to have you send me some pictures of your progress to make sure it is coming out well.

I am hoping for a costume similar to this: http://[Content Moderated] /files[Content Moderated] JPG

$100 will include reimbursement for buying materials and delivery fees. I can do a pickup if you are based in Melbourne.

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Top Halloween Costume Ideas

Gone are the days where it was easy to to go to Big W, buy a white table cloth and cut out two eye holes and become a ghost for Halloween. From matching couple costumes to the latest movie characters, people dressing up for Halloween are looking outside the box this year.

Here are the top creative Halloween costumes ideas:

Harley Quinn

After behind-the-scene shots of one of the most anticipated movies, The Suicid Squad, we’re thinking there will be many Harley Quinn look-a-likes roaming the streets this year. As an added bonus it’s not a terribly hard costume to put together with some hair chalk, shorts, a baseball top and make up for special effects.

Star Wars

It’s been a decade but the next Star Wars movie is about to be in every cinema in December. From Luke Skywalker and Darth Varder, to Princess Leia and Chewbacca – the options are endless.

Want to push the boundaries with an R2-D2 or Yoda costume? An Airtasker can help you put it all together for you.

No one can look past a good Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman or Catwoman superhero character for a party – but we are going to say that it’s definitely the least scariest and easy option.

They are seriously too cute and make the ideal children’s costumes as they guarantee not to scare a soul. It can be a little difficult to make but with a bit of DIY and creative input, your little minion will be a star.

Halloween Decoration Ideas

Throwing a Halloween party this weekend? We’ve found some last minute DIY decorations to help get your house looking fantastically ghoulish. Here are 10 halloween decorations set to make your home look as good as your costume.

1. BOO!

Source: Buzzfeed

Perhaps the easiest decoration just get a sheet of black cardboard and you’ve got an instant ghostly fridge.

2. First impressions

Source: Listotic

Make an entrance with this cardboard last minute project. You’ll have a monster of a time.

3. Hipster pumpkins


Pumpkin carving can get mighty messy so why not showoff your painting skills instead. Perhaps you could even get guests to BYO their own creations and have a prize for the best looking pumpkin.

4. Mummy mason jars

Source: Home to Indy

Mummify recycled jars with bandaging and craft store purchased googly eyes. Just don’t forget to add the tea light candles and light when it gets darker.

If you need a helping hand there are thousands of Airtaskers ready to help you out.

5. Glowing ghosts

Source: Buzzfeed

You can stick these glowing balloons all throughout the house, even in some cupboards for an extra scare. Just crack a glow stick and place into a blown up balloon.

6. Pumpkin cooler

Source: Princess Pinky Girl

At the end of the day it’s still a party and drinks need to remain cold at all times. Staying with the theme, crave out the inside of a pumpkin and place in a glass bowl with ice.

7. Classy garland

Source: Home to Indy

It doesn’t have to be all fake blood and pumpkins – use colours orange, black and white in new original ways. To make this garland just buy different bits of ribbon (even ask for offcuts to save money) and away you go.

8. Bloody candle

Source: Princess Pinky Girl

Who are we kidding, it’s the one time of the year where it’s blood-themed decorations are acceptable. This is simple to recreate by melting red candle wax onto a white candle.

9. Scary bottles


Another chance to get out the paint brush and convert wine bottles into works of halloween art.

10. Milky ghosts

Line the backyard or balcony with these recycled milk bottles that have been made to look like ghosts thanks to the help of a Sharpie.

Easy DIY Costume Ideas

Everybody loves a good dress up party and wanting to be the best, so with halloween just around the corner "Easy DIY Costume Ideas"

Everybody loves a good dress up party and wanting to be the best, so with halloween just around the corner I thought I’d find you some of the best DIY dress-up costumes I could find.

Here are some of our favourite alternative DIY costumes.

1. Sweet tooth

Source: Mommy Testers

Yummy enough to eat? Well maybe not but it sure does look fantastic and it’s easy to make because all you need is brown paper, toilet paper and colourful streamers.

2. Pac-man


If you have a group why not get together and go as the characters from pac-man. You’ll be chasing each other all night!

3. Or… Tetris


This is definitely more original and you could even challenge yourself to see how many different combinations you can make.

4. Barbie Doll

barbie and ken feature image

I had barbie doll costume made for a dress up party by an Airtasker and I’ll never make a costume again because it was so great not to have to worry about it. Not to mention I won best dressed!

5. Dunkin Donuts


Costumes playing of brand names or couple costumes are always entertaining. Think bacon and eggs or cookie monster.

6. Lego


This is possibly the best one yet because everyone as a kid played with lego, plus there are so many outfit combinations.

7. Snacks anyone?


Wearing this would make you the party favourite and could even see you early a couple of dollars (only joking), but it doesn’t get much more creative than this.

8. Xenomorph

wine copy

Whether it’s halloween or you just really like aliens, this is an Airtasker-made costume and perhaps the best one we’ve seen yet.

Don’t have time to make a costume? There are plenty of Airtasker happy to take up the challenge, I know that I’ll never look back!
