‘Tis the season, the Halloween season, that is! No matter if you are a beauty vlogger, gamer, musician, or another content creator, creating a Halloween-themed video can attract new subscribers as well as entertaining your loyal followers.
1. Beauty Gurus of the Night
Since a big part of Halloween is costumes and makeup, beauty vloggers can fit Halloween right in with their other content. This can be a simple Halloween look, a glam Halloween look or an experiment with SFX makeup if you’ve never done it before.
Besides just adding a Halloween element, you want to make sure that the content you are creating is new and attractive to both new potential subscribers and your faithful subscribers. So. as a beauty vlogger, you can step outside of your typical content for the special as well. Maybe you’ll play a Halloween themed game with a friend, or maybe you can bake Halloween treats or paint a pumpkin. The possibilities are endless!

2. Trick, Treat, or Game
For gamers, creating a Halloween special can be an interesting way to bring new games to your channel or an opportunity to collaborate with other gamers on YouTube. This can be particularly entertaining for your subscribers if you are wary of scary games and are willing to play a horror game or scary game for the special.
You are also not limited to your typical gaming content. You can also use this special as an opportunity to bring or test out completely new content on your channel. Maybe you want to script and film a short ghost story or produce a vlog special about what you are actually going to do on Halloween.

3. Spooky Vloggers
If you exclusively create vlogs or if you have a second vlogging channel, this is a great place to incorporate a Halloween Special. Again, you can stick with your typical content that highlights the holiday, such as you and your friends or family going trick or treating or planning a costume party.
Additionally, you can go completely outside of your normal content as well. Maybe you have never tried Halloween makeup before and want to for the special, or maybe playing a horror game, or watching a scary movie and creating a reaction video.

The great thing about it is that it is one holiday, so if things do not work out with the special, it’s okay.
The important thing is that it gives you an opportunity to open your channel up to newcomers, and it opens you up to new content opportunities. You could end up with an annual Halloween special tradition.
