Dancing skeletons and prancing pumpkin-headed riders! The meandering shapes and scary sounds in the shadows make one’s hair stand up pretty high and make one’s heart beat as fast as a vole that has stopped taking blood pressure medication and has had a near-death experience! This is Halloween for you boys and girls!
Also known as Hallowe’en (stylishly contracted from All Hallows’ Evening) or All Saints’ Eve, this holiday represents the time of year when people from the Western hemisphere pay their respects to their dead. Everyone is here in remembrance as long as they lead a just and Christian life in their day on Earth!
Oddly enough, this otherwise pretty serious holiday is linked to dressing up in scary costumes and asking strangers for candy if you’re small enough to get away with it. (Or short enough, who knows. Sneaky adults might also try to lure it into the fun if they don’t have a tall stance, so to speak.)
Halloween is the best time to enrich your Instagram feed with creative and smart content! Plus points, of course, for making it as spooky and spooky as possible.
In this article, we’ll give you some Halloween-themed hashtag suggestions that you can then match with your unique captions. Therefore, the resulting post should be as compelling to your followers as the treats floating around this time of year.
So, we have some examples and some categories here too, so feed your sad butts! Spooky things ahead, we tell you!
Scary Bag o’ Treats!
Here’s an idea: If you’re a female Instagram user, upload a makeup-free selfie and see what happens!
Hey, it’s hard, we know and you may lose a follower or two, but those who stick around after such an experience this is really important! Kidding aside, Halloween is a holiday that really allows for a lot of creative posting without risking offending anyone or otherwise ruining your reputation. (Unless, of course, you’ve decided to wear a Harley Quinn or Joker costume, then – you’ve made your own internet break. It has nothing to do with hashtags. These two costumes are overused.)
Addressing the Holiday
If all the stinking hashtags you’re about to see are the whole bag of tricks and treats, these examples are the worst kind of abuse you can find in them! That’s right – we’re talking fruit here! On a more serious note, these are the most basic of Halloween ‘hashtagging’, so these are only suitable for making basic posts where you accept the holiday. Of course, you can also spice them up with a clever caption or photo, so even these ‘stinky’ sweets can be a powerful tool in the hands of a truly dedicated Instagrammer!

Trick or Trick Dealing
Ah, the best part of Halloween! (If you’re a kid, that is.) Still, there’s plenty of material for Instagram posts in this section. To make a witty and spooky post about this ancient tradition, snap an interesting photo of some dressed-up kids, be sure to capture them at their scariest (and cutest) moment, then add one of the hashtags below to complete the post. :
- #trick or joke
- #halloween decorations
When it comes to makeup for Halloween night, there is so much potential material to work on that it’s hard to describe it all in one paragraph.
Whether it’s simple white sheets with two holes for the eyes, witch costumes with black boots and pointed hats, or elaborate zombie masks full of blood and gore that look almost real, you can simply snap a photo of it and add a simple hashtag line for a bullseye on Instagram! Let’s repeat – it’s the headline or the photo that matters most. Hashtags are just there to add a flavor to it! Here are some ideas you can use:
- #halloween fun
- #halloween mask
- #halloween contest
- #Halloween night
- #halloween spirit
The bottom line – scare your followers, get them to watch disfigured bodies and bloody sights on your Instagram feed (we’re talking mostly about costumes, not real people, of course), spice things up with some standard Halloween hashtags and they’ll love you for it! Remember – the spooky, the funnier!
