New body paints and contacts were released for Halloween!

The Fall Update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is officially here! On October 1, you’ll be able to plant pumpkins, purchase Halloween costumes and Spooky furniture, and even customize your character’s appearance with new body paints and eye contacts.

To customize your character’s appearance, you’ll need to interact with a vanity or mirror. Here’s how this works!

Interact with a mirror or vanity and choose “Change it up!”
