How To Use Halloween Bitmojis On Snap Map For Spooky Updates On Your Friends
Now that Halloween has finally arrived, the day for your best costume is here. While planning your Hallo-look, you might've pondered whether it's possible for your Bitmoji to get a little festive — it a mini you, after all. Well, guess what? It can, all thanks to a spooky new Snapchat update. Keep reading to find out how to use Halloween Bitmojis on Snapchat to make spooky season even more interactive. You know you want to!
According to a Snap spokesperson, the social media platform brought back a bunch of 3-D Bitmoji costumes in the app, including a haunted house, a witch, a pirate, a black cat, and a zombie. The fun looks will be available on Snapchat and the Bitmoji app through Thursday, Oct. 31. Because they're 3-D, you'll be able to see every spooky angle of the costumes. Say, for instance, you dress up your Bitmoji as a witch. You'll be able to use your 3-D Bitmoji World Lenses to show off the spooky, cartoon version of yourself. However, keep in mind that you'll have to change your Bitmoji's outfit (in Snapchat or the Bitmoji app) to see it wearing the costume in the 3-D lenses. To do so, you can tap on your Bitmoji avatar in Snapchat or the Bitmoji app and then go the the "Change Outfit" tab. From there, you can scroll down to the Halloween costumes and choose whichever spooky 'fit you like.
But that's not Snapchat's only exciting Halloween update. The company also revamped Snap Map with dark purple hues for a spookier aesthetic than usual. The Haunted Snap Map is also dotted with black cats, jack-o-lanterns, and candy corns, and it pairs perfectly with the Bitmoji costumes and really gives off those ghostly vibes all of us are looking for on Halloween.
The Haunted Snap Map will switch on automatically — you don't have to tap anything, don't worry! — and comes with some cool features.. For example, when you're driving, your Actionmoji will be riding a broomstick instead of a car, and when you're walking, you'll look like a zombie walker straight out of The Walking Dead! Your default Actionmoji might be shown holding a bag of candy. My Actionmoji on the Haunted Snap Map might be having more Halloween fun than real-life me, and I'm jealous.
Beyond a frightening-looking Snap Map and costumes for your Bitmoji, Snapchat didn't forget about its human users. A company spokesperson tells Elite Daily that the company has added a few new Snapchat Lenses to the app. As you can probably guess, they're Halloween-themed and scary cool. Using the Lenses, Snapchatters can play with "ghoulish real-time special effects" and decorate their surroundings for the holiday. (I'm adding lots of pumpkins, TBH.)
If filters and stickers are more your thing, there are some Halloween exclusives available on the app, too. Various locations and major cities will have freaky filters on Halloween only, a company spokesperson tells Elite Daily, making for a fun way to geotag your trick-or-treating adventures. Plus, the sticker and emoji libraries have been updated with Halloween-approved additions like a witches hat, which I will add to every Snap until midnight, thank you very much.
Now, let's get back to Actionmojis: There's a chance your Actionmoji will wind up trick-or-treating (or stirring a caldron, etc.) without you. Should that be the case, embrace the moment with a screenshot and upload it to your story with some of those (boo)tiful stickers and emojis while you have access to them!
Oh yeah, that's the thing: All this amazingness will disappear from Snapchat on Nov. 1. Halloween will be nothing but a memory and so will these spooky features. So, stop everything and open Snapchat. Your Bitmoji needs a costume for the Haunted Snap Map.
