Halloween is just around the corner, and if you still haven't found the perfect costume, don't worry. Snapchat has you covered with its new augmented reality lens experiences.

With the new Snapchat filter, you can try on different costumes and see how they look on you without even leaving your home. It is also a great way to try on different outfits without having to spend any money!

Users can choose from a variety of tops, bottoms, dresses, and even shoes to see how they would look in them. Afterward, you can share your pictures with your friends and get their opinion before eventually buying them.

Buy and try clothes from Disney, Squid Game, and more

Users can try and buy costumes from some of the most popular franchises, including Disney, "Squid Game," "Stranger Things," "Power Rangers," "Transformers," "Jurassic World," "The Office," "Chucky," "Ghostbusters," "Cobra Kai," and "Harry Potter" movies.

How does it work?

Users can search for their preferred pop-culture franchise like "Stranger Things" or "The Office" in the lens explorer tab or unlock a specific lens by scanning each Snap code.

The costume testers even provide links so they can purchase the looks straight from their page!

What is an AR shopping lens?

AR shopping lens is a technology that allows users to view products in augmented reality. With this technology, you can see how products look in your space before you buy them, and get an idea of how the fit will look from the comfort of your home.
