If you want to wear a mask for Halloween choose from one of these characters that wear a mask or would work well with a mask.

If you or your kids are starting to think about Halloween and how masks will work with the costume, I’ve put a giant list together of all the ways you can wear a mask with a Halloween costume.

My kids start picking their costumes at the end of the summer because we are that crazy family! We just love Halloween and dressing up!

Some of these characters actually wear a mask and some of these characters don’t wear masks, but masks would only enhance the look of the costume. Some of these are general costume ideas that would work well with masks.

Why Make DIY Costumes?

I love to make DIY costumes for my kids for lots of different reasons. I love that I can make something unique that they want and that they’ll love. We live in a cold area so I always have to plan costumes to be warm so that they don’t have to wear a jacket or coat over it.

I almost always save money by reusing fabric and clothing from my stash and around our home, and I have found that reusing clothing saves me time.

Homemade DIY costumes use stronger and more durable fabric that will last through months and years of dress up and play time. I love that the costumes will last longer than one night of trick-or-treating.

The great thing about this list is that there are so many different kinds of characters that wear masks! Some are characters for children and some are characters for adults. Some are scary but most are not.

There are ideas for children, adults, women, men, girls, and boys. There are cartoons from books or shows, and real characters from comic books and movies.

Be careful of the school rules for your children if they can wear masks at school. My kids can wear costumes to school, but they can’t wear masks with their costumes. Get ideas for masked characters with this fantastic and diverse list!
