The smell of pumpkin spiced lattes is in the air, vampire fangs are appearing in stores and we've got a craving for candy corn... it can only mean that Halloween is near! October 31st offers lots of opportunities to boost your business, have fun in class or just enjoy the spooky season.
While less of us will be out trick or treating this year, more people are planning to decorate their house than ever with 72% of celebrants buying themed decor for their home. Last year, decoration sales hit $2.7 billion. Plus, more of us are planning to visit a haunted house or spooky attraction, up from 18% in 2019 to 22%. While most of this year has been pretty scary already, it's clear we still have an appetite for thrills so don't miss out on this opportunity to engage your audiences.
To help you get involved in the action, we've created a complete Halloween video scare kit. That's right, it's packed with everything you'll need to create terrifyingly captivating Halloween videos, from brand new templates to themed drawing hands and a whole host of spooky images.

To use these hands in your video, click the 'Default Scribe Hand' button in the top right-hand corner and select the 'Seasonal' option. Or click the 'Element Properties' of an individual image or piece of text to change the drawing hand of that specific asset.
Frightfully captivating Halloween images

We have a range of Halloween themed images ready and waiting for you in the VideoScribe library, covering everything from vampires and witches to candy corn and tombstones. You can get a glimpse of them in our video above.
To use these images, simply click the 'Add New Image' button in the bottom right-hand corner of your VideoScribe screen and type 'Halloween' in the search bar. Just like that you'll see our full range of spooky images that you can add to your seasonal videos this October.
