If you’re behind on selecting your costume just days before Halloween, your tablet may be able to help you out of that pinch situation. Not only can your tablet help you rush order a last minute costume no matter where you are, your device can also spice up a costume you already have with digital, animated effects, such rolling eyes or exposed beating hearts with apps like Digital Dudz. For the DIY crowd, a tablet can be beneficial in planning and creating a home-made costume: research your costume idea on sites like Pinterest, make a list of supplies on your tablet to bring to the store, and assemble your at-home creation while watching how-to videos. With their ultra-mobile form, tablets eliminate the feeling that you are tied to your desk when planning your outfit for a holiday event. In addition, consider adding “special effects” to your costume. Whether you’re assuming the look of a beast or a celebrity, adding hair and makeup accents can really make a costume shine. Prop your tablet on your bathroom bureau and find inspiration from hair and makeup apps and tutorials such as Beautylish.

On Halloween morning, plan to have your tablet by your side to research and prepare for the day. With the power and performance of the latest Intel® Atom™ powered devices, you can seamlessly flip between apps to research anything from the best trick or treat routes to recipes to pumpkin carving templates, or perhaps all of the above at the same time. Download some of the top Halloween apps and consider resetting your screen background to a festive, animated image to get in the spirit.

Evening trick or treating is a great place to bring a tablet along. While your hands may be quite full carrying your children’s candy bags and props, a tablet will slide into your bag. Use it to take photos when trick or treating. Tablets are coming in even more size options, and, unlike a point-and-shoot camera, larger screen sizes with HD resolution enable you to see more easily in the dark when snapping action shots.

When you’re ready to start your evening party, mix the soundtrack up with spooky tunes ideal for your Halloween bash. Play songs on an Intel-powered tablet to enjoy long lasting battery life and music throughout the night. Make sure your house is looking festive for the gathering by watching décor video tutorials and downloading DIY decorating patterns and printable designs.

As with many holidays or big events, your tablet can act as an assistant throughout the day to make your Halloween celebrations as robust as possible. This month your tablet can make you look spooky and indulge in Halloween fun, but soon it will assist you in transforming your home into a winter wonderland. Stay tuned throughout the upcoming holiday season for inspiration on how your tablet can make the holidays enjoyable, memorable and headache-free.
