Three Ways to Enjoy Halloween in Web3 This Year

It’s that time of year again, when the veil between the living and the supernatural is at its thinnest, and Rarity Sniper is here to take you on a haunted journey to see what’s going on in the NFT space.

This year, Trick-or-Treating isn’t just for kids — we’ve got some treats lined up for all you degens out there. So adorn yourself in your scariest (or most ridiculous) costumes and masks, and let’s see what’s going on in Web3 this Halloween.

Halloween Drops & Events

  • Rocky Horror Picture Show NFTs. This year, Online Blockchain is debuting multiple new non-fungible token collections about one of Halloween’s favorite cult classics: the Rocky Horror Picture Show. The drops were spread out across the month, with the mint prices rising over time. In addition, select NFTs made their debut in a museum in Monaco. Those who purchase the NFTs for 5 ETH each will receive a physical version.
  • ‘Day of the DeadMau5’ Returns. This year, Canadian DJ and producer has returned with his spooky Halloween/Day of the Dead tour. The DJ will be playing six Day of the Dead themed shows–two in Chicago, two in Mexico City, and two in Colorado. He’ll also be promoting visual’s from the new blockchain-based racing game Nitro Nation World Tour, which he collaborated on with Mythical Games.
  •, a company that specializes in digitalizing the card collecting experience, just sold out a Halloween-card drop last week called “Legend of the Haunted Vault.” The spooky Pokémon cards were gone in a matter of seconds and are currently available on secondary NFT markets.
  • September Mourning NFT Giveaway on Gala Music. September Mourning is a dark metal band known for their haunting, atmospheric music and their incorporation of animation into their aesthetic.

Giveaway winners will own the exclusive digital collectible, so they can permanently have it in their account.

Halloween in the Metaverse

The metaverse is fast-becoming the best place in the digital world to throw a party, and nothing says party quite like Halloween. Below are a few Halloween-themed metaverse events happening this year:

  • Decentraland Halloween AI Treasure Hunt. The popular metaverse Decentraland has several events for the Halloween season, including Haunted House Tours, daily quests, treasure hunts, and AI-generated quests. Guests are encouraged to dress their avatars in the “most frightening attire.” The virtual events take place between October 27th and November 2nd. 
  • NFTS ARE DEAD is the premiere metaverse event of the Halloween season. Join the Wolf of Wall Street himself, Jordan Belfort, in the official Halloween party of Decentraland presented by SANTOINFIERNO. The party will feature music from some of the best musicians that have previously performed in the Metaverse, alongside some exciting newcomers.

Artists include Ookay, Autograf, Lil Bitcoin and more. Attendees will have a choice between heaven- or hell-themed parties that will each feature richly themed decorations and immersive environments. Attendees are invited to wear their best costume for photo opps. Jordan Belfort will be attending so look out for him in the 1/1 wolf head wearable.

This event is produced by partners BEAR NFT, BLACK FLAG, and Banquet Labs, with support by The Last Slice, who spearheaded the builds. It takes place on Saturday, Oct 30th, from 11 pm to 01 am (UTC-6).

Five Spooky NFT Collections to Purchase This Halloween

Not everything that’s happening this Halloween season is a new event or drop. Some NFT collections have that Halloween vibe all year. If you’re looking for a new PFP avatar to attend a metaverse event, or just to show off on your profile to get into the Halloween spirit, the following collections stay spooky year round:

  • Deadfellaz. DeadFellaz is a 10,000 piece NFT collection on Ethereum that launched just before Halloween in 2021. The collection owns 24 plots of land in Decentraland, which it calls the “Deadzone 13.” The creepy collection boasts several stars as holders, including Steve Aoki, Lionel Richie, Reese Witherspoon, and Alexis Ohanian.
  • Wicked Craniums. This collection consists of 10,762 pictorial representations of Craniums on Ethereum. It is a project that is heavy with spooky lore. According to legend, there is an island called Osseous that hides a dark secret. Many men — Vikings, Monarch, Russians, Sikhs — have searched for the secret, but none have returned alive. 
  • Los Muertos World.  A collection of 10,000 PFP NFTs on Ethereum draw their artistic influence from Mexico’s ‘Day of the Dead’ celebrations. The Los Muertos PFP NFTs are colorfully painted skeletons, and each was algorithmically generated by combining unique hand drawn traits. Holders own all rights to the art.
  • Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC). This collection needs little introduction. The follow up collection from Yuga Labs, MAYC consists of 20,000 Mutant Apes on Ethereum that were created by exposing an existing Bored Ape to a vial of MUTANT SERUM, or by minting a MAYC NFT at its public sale in August 2021.
  • Spookies NFT. If you’re looking for a PFP NFT that’s more cute than scary, but still has the Halloween spirit, this could be the one. Spookies consists of 8888 creative ghost collectibles on Ethereum. The art was hand drawn and each NFT is unique. Some of the ghost NFTs hold knives and brains, while others hold less threatening objects like ice cream and bonsai trees. All of them are, well, pretty adorable.
