A new batch of eye colors and skin tones are available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons to help celebrate Halloween.

These new shades are only purchasable during October, but are useable year-round. To grab the new eye and skin colors, you’ll need to buy them from the Nook Stop. “Body-Paint Costume Tips” and “Exploring New Eye Colors” are both available for 2,400 Nook Miles.

Once you buy the packs, you can immediately head over to a mirror furnishing item to change your skin or eye color.

Other Halloween-based customization, like clothes and accessories, can be bought from The Able Sisters or from Kicks to complete your look. You can also find Halloween DIY recipes, which use Pumpkins to craft, from talking to villagers crafting items in their homes.

While you don’t need to be dressed up as anything scary for the in-game Halloween event, having more color options for customization is always nice.
