Actors’ union SAG-AFTRA offers ‘strike-friendly’ tips for Halloween costumes

Halloween costumes could be limited for Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) union members according to new guidelines in support of the strike.

On Wednesday, the actors’ union released what appeared to be a flier on how to properly recognize the October celebration without undermining the ongoing strike nearing its 100th day.

“This Halloween, we wanted to make sure our members don’t inadvertently break strike rules, and have put together some quick tips on the dos and don’ts for costumes. Check them out and have a spooktacular Halloween!” the pamphlet read.

The tips included not choosing “costumes inspired by generalized characters and figures (ghost, zombie, spider, etc)”, not posting “photos of costumes inspired by struck content to social media” and instead dressing up “as characters from non-struck content, like an animated TV show.”
