Disguise, a subsidiary of JAKKS Pacific, and Snap have announced the launch of an AR shopping experience for Halloween costumes on Snapchat featuring Disguise’s 2022 line. 

Snapchatters can try on, share with friends and buy costumes of their favorite characters from brands and franchises including Hocus Pocus, Disney Princesses, Disney Villains, Harry Potter, NBCUniversal’s “The Office” and “Chucky,” Netflix’s “Squid Game” and “Stranger Things” as well as Minecraft, Power Rangers, Transformers, Cobra Kai and Ghostbusters.  

“Imagining what a costume will look like on you is a big part of Halloween shopping,” says Stephen Berman, chief executive officer, JAKKS Pacific. “Snapchat’s new AR try-on capabilities take the wonder out of your costume shopping experience. Disguise is excited to partner with Snapchat this year to bring these Lenses to life. We have enlisted some of our top licensors to help us create an enjoyable try-on experience for customers and fans. All Lenses will also have a direct line to purchase if you like what you see!” 

Users can find the Halloween try-on Lenses in Disguise’s public profile on Snapchat by searching Disguise Costumes in the search bar or specific brand names, like “Power Rangers” and “Harry Potter,” in Snapchat's Lens Explorer, or unlock a specific Lens using each Snapcode.
