One of the most popular holidays in the United States, Halloween is the favorite of many. It’s a day of costumes, candy and scary stories. So, it’s no wonder it is loved by children and adults alike.

When I moved to the US, people would ask me if I experienced any cultural shock. I didn’t, I said – I had seen pretty much everything back in India or in movies. Until my first Halloween came around, that is. At Harvard Design School, we take Halloween very seriously. Halloween costumes are planned weeks in advance. I saw everything from a 3D printed man-sized face to fully painted faces and hands to match the costume’s print.
