Take This Old School Quiz to Find Out What to Be for Halloween

Back in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, before the days of Buzzfeed quizzes, we sat and thoroughly read these nifty things called magazines, and within their glossy pages were various quizzes to help people get to know themselves a bit better. While those quizzes are a bit obsolete today, we thought it would be fun to bring back an unconventional way of quizzing for what we’re sure will be an unconventional Halloween.

So sit back, read through this nostalgic quiz, jot down your answers on a piece of paper (crazy!), and with a little magic, you’ll find out what you’re destined to be for a socially distanced Halloween 2020.

For those asking, a couch potato is not a costume—just our everyday 2020 look.

Oh no, your pesky little brother stained your original costume! Time to make a last-minute costume change, what do you go as?

A: 80s cool-girl. Just throw my hair in a side ponytail, put a scrunchie around my wrist, and I’m good to go!

B: A ghost. Grab a sheet and let’s get that candy.

C: It’s fine, I really didn’t feel like dressing up anyway.

D: A human paint canvas—who doesn’t have spare body paint to douse themselves in?

Your mom is all about getting a ton of photos of you in your costume, how do you react?

A: I’m into it, but make sure to get my good side.

B: Sure, but I’m going to make a funny face in every single one.

C: I’m a little camera shy, but if it makes mom happy…

D: YES, but we have to get the background right so my costume really pops!

Would you take candy from a stranger?

A: Are you insane? Have you watched the news recently?

B: I’d do it for the story.

C: I don’t talk that much to people I know, you really think I’m going to talk to a stranger for candy?

D: I’d take it and somehow turn it into a prop for my costume. Innovative, right?

What is your favorite type of Halloween candy to receive when trick-or-treating?

A: Anything chocolate, please.

B: Sour gummies or bust.

C: Unpopular opinion, but I don’t like candy.

D: Whatever is easiest to hide from my parents or my kids after I get home.

See, that was easy!
