SAG-AFTRA Gives Union Members Rules For Halloween Costumes During Strike

Published on

First, the union told the actors they couldn’t speak about films or shows they worked on during convention appearances (even if they were from years ago,) then the union told non-union influencers that they couldn’t talk about AMPTP projects or go to premiers if they ever wanted to join the union. Now, they are telling members what they can and can’t dress up as for Halloween this year.

SAG-AFTRA has put out Halloween costume guidelines for members.

While the strike is continuing and talks between the actors and studios have broken down, SAG-AFTRA has time to police their union members on what Halloween costumes they are allowed to wear and what they are not allowed to wear.

Members can not dress up as characters from struck studios or content (like Marvel characters, Star Wars characters, Wednesday Addams, Barbie, Ken and more.) They are even asked not to post any images on their social media of them appearing in “struck” studio costumes.

Instead, they are told to choose costumes based on generalizations like “ghost, zombie, spider, etc.” Or they can dress up from characters from non-struck shows or animated shows (which would also create confusion as some are owned by struck studios.)

I especially love the eyeballs on the poster, seemingly indicating what I’m sure they already know: the union is watching! Always watching.

Earlier in the strike, the guild issued similar policies regarding what cosplayers could and couldn’t wear if they wanted to “support the strikes” during convention season. Now, they are telling the union members what they can and can’t wear for Halloween.

Mabye they should be more worried about fixing the strike and finding a resolution instead of making last-minute demands and telling union members not to dress up as Barbie.

But that’s my opinion.
