Pretty pastels are the new black and orange! Take the path away from the classic Halloween color palette and explore a whimsical (yet, spooky) world of soft, subdued shades.


Overview

For this challenge we’re looking for fun Halloween themes explored through sweeter, non-traditional hues such as baby pink, dusty lavender or sky blue. From seafoam green witches, to cotton candy pumpkins, to rainbow candy corn––the pastel possibilities are endless.
