It’s that time of year again where Halloween parties are organised and finding costumes is on everyone’s to-do list. But if you aren’t organised yet or need a helping hand, we see plenty of people post all kinds of Halloween tasks.

Here’s some list of spooky inspiration:

1. Halloween make-up

Whether it’s ghoulish zombie make-up or some creative Day Of The Dead face-painting, here are some of our top picks…

Shark bite makeup for Halloween birthday party

Calling all talented make up artists. I’m celebrating my birthday at a Halloween event. Id love to go as a shark attack victim. The attached image is what I’m trying to achieve.

The date of the event is Friday, 28 October. Will need to be ready by 6:00pm.

Ideally, you can travel to Broadbeach Waters otherwise happy to drive nearby.

Would be perfect for someone trying to build their portfolio.

Halloween Make Up Artist Needed

I’m looking for a makeup artist to do 5 x males make-up of El Diablo (please google to see what will be needed to be done). See the following link – [Content Moderated] It will need to be done in Stkilda East this Saturday night, 21st October – 7pm – 8pm.

Day of the Dead face painting for Halloween

We are after some with experience to come over to our place on the afternoon of the 31st and paint myself and my partners faces for a Halloween party in the style of Dia de los Muertos face painting.

2. Waiters

Being stuck in the kitchen and serving food during your own party is no way to have a good time. Get an Airtasker to take care of it, so that you can catch up with your friends and hit the dancefloor without a worry!

Halloween Engagement party

Hi.. We require 1 person to assist in preparing and serving finger food for our Halloween Engagement Party.
Services required on SATURDAY 29 OCTOBER from 6pm.
Jobs required in the kitchen are to heat and prepare platters of finger food (supplied), walk among our guests to serve food, clear or re-plate platters, keep kitchen clean and tidy, wash dishes as required.
We have already allocated 1 other person to work in the kitchen and someone to run the bar. Therefore you would accompany another Airtasker.
During the night, 1 of the kitchen staff could float between the kitchen and the bar when the bar seems busy (whilst waiting for food to reheat).
Please note that this will be a fancy dress party.

3. Halloween decorating

It can take a little bit more effort than your usual house party to make your home look spooky. Relieve yourself of some of that stress with helping hand to pick up and deliver decorations, set up fake cobwebs, put up ghost wall stickers and anything else you need to do before your guests arrive.

Halloween Party set up!

4. Post Halloween clean-up

Halloween can be a very messy party to host at your home and no one wants to wake up the day after to clean. Lucky house cleaning is one of the most popular tasks on Airtasker and there’s always plenty of people ready to help!

Post halloween party apartment clean

Hi there, we are having a bit of a halloween bash at our apartment and would like to have the place cleaned up the following morning take the pressure of the hosts

Would be basic cleaning duties including..
– mop tile floors
– tidying all bottles and other rubbish up
– wipe down benches and surfaces
– Vacuum
– washing platters/other dishes

Should be roughly 2 hours work from 10am on Sunday 1st November. All cleaning products can be provided

Any questions please let me know

5. Costumes

Halloween is all about looking the part, whether you’re trick or treating with the kids or going to a party – let’s think out of the costume box this year and see how Airtasker can help you!

Make me a Unicorn costume for halloween

Drawing inspiration from this DIY article (it won’t let me post the link, please see “Turn a hoodie into a unicorn costume” article on [Content Moderated] from Oct 18th)

I’m looking for someone to buy the materials and follow the instructions there.

I am a medium size man, so a white hoodie or something might work best. If it matters, I’m going to a party with startups and am playing on the industry term of “unicorn” as a successful startup company

I would like to have the costume dropped off at my office by 5:00, and I’d like to have you send me some pictures of your progress to make sure it is coming out well.

Need someone to sew a Monsters Inc Boo costume

I need someone who know how to stitch and make a Monsters Inc Boo costume for Halloween! It will be for my niece who is 2 years old. I would love to do it if I could, but I am terrible at handcraft.

I am hoping for a costume similar to this: http://[Content Moderated] /files[Content Moderated] JPG

I found a costume tutorial here: [Content Moderated]

$100 will include reimbursement for buying materials and delivery fees. I can do a pickup if you are based in Melbourne.

Please note that I will need the costume by the 23rd Oct! If you are confident that you can get it done, I will get you her measurements.

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Make a pvc walker for a Halloween costume

My 5 year old daughter is going as an old lady for a Halloween disco at school and I need a handyman to make up a pvc Walker something along the lines of the pics I’ve included. I don’t have the materials and would like it to be spray painted silver as in photos. I’m in Carina but am happy to pick up the completed Walker from your location.

Make a “Mater” Halloween costume

You know the movie “Cars”? I need someone to make my toddler a Mater costume out of a cardboard box.

8. Halloween promotion for businesses

If you need some extra promotion for your business this Halloween, getting people in your local area to hand out flyers is a guaranteed way to get the word out.

Hand out flyers for a Halloween party

Would like you to walk around near Sydney Town Hall steps, intercept people exiting the Sydstart conference on there tomorrow Friday 30th and hand out A4 flyers for a Halloween party happening that night one block away. Will supply promotional t-shirt.

I've loved interior design for as long as I can remember and I'm currently about to renovate my first home. So as well as being the Content Lead at Airtasker, I'm also on the lookout for the latest design trends, backyard ideas and anything to do around the home. I'm also trying to use low-tox cleaning methods and work towards being more plastic-free!
