Take inspiration from a famous movie or TV show!

Follow a theme.
Dressing up for Halloween as well? Well, why not make your vehicle as part of your ensemble? You can dress up as a pirate hunting for treasure, or an astronaut ready to explore space, and also use your car to your advantage. Turn your car into a pirate ship or a rocket and up the wow factor of your Halloween costume!
Turn your car into a character!
Another easy way to design your car for Halloween is to think first of a well-known cartoon character. You can look up their trademark features or colors, and decorate your car accordingly.
Finding it a bit difficult to think of a character and dressing up your car? You can always go the traditional Halloween way! Simply decorate your car with cobwebs, dark orange Christmas lights, cut-out silhouettes of bats, ghosts, skeletons, etc. It will still grab attention as you drive by or even when it’s parked outside of your house.
Use your car’s features to your advantage.

Make your own Halloween float at the back or even install a mini-game that can be enjoyed by everyone going trick or treating! It’ll be even more fun when you can drive your car around.
