Before players could obtain any treats they had to dress appropriately. If the costume was good enough, the trick-or-treat victims would let the player know. Players had to wear at least two pieces of the costume to qualify as a costume. The cheapest, easiest to obtain costume was the white apron from Gerrant's bait shop (free), and the black wizard hat, obtained from Betty for 3 coins.
The following items are a partial list of costumes that worked and did not work during the event.
|Worked||Did not work|
|Animal masks||Barrows equipment (All)|
|White apron||Fake beak and Eagle cape|
|Ava's attractor/accumulator||Fancy boots|
|Full Bandos armour||Fighting boots|
|Bomber jacket costume||Canifis robes|
|Brown apron||Robes from the Grand Tree|
|Builder's costume||Rogue armour|
|Bunny ears||Runecrafter Robes|
|Chef's hat||Void Knight equipment|
|Chicken Set||Vyrewatch clothing|
|Chocatrice cape||Camel mask|
|Crab helmet||Larupia hunter gear|
|Clown costume||Graahk hunter gear|
|Frog mask||Kyatt hunter gear|
|Ghostly robes||Desert camouflage gear|
|Giant's hand||Jungle camouflage gear|
|Grim reaper hood||Wood camouflage gear|
|Halloween masks||Polar camouflage gear|
|Ogre top and Ogre kilt|

After donning the costume, players could Trick-or-treat, which was done by right-clicking on an NPC and clicking "Trick-or-Treat". Killable NPCs, such as men and women could not be trick or treated. There were 27 NPCs in all that gave candy.
NPCs gave out three kinds of treats during this event. They were all non-tradeable. Each treat healed 3 Hitpoints. All of these candy disappeared and crumbled to dust at the end of the event. Popcorn balls seemed to be the most common and it seemed that players could only get wrapped candies and chocolate drops from doing tricks.
Once all the items had been collected, players returned to Maggie for their reward. Players would get a Warlock top, Warlock legs and a Warlock cloak if their character was male, and a Witch top, Witch skirt, and Witch cloak if their character was female. Equipping Warlock items on a female character would make them turn into Witch items, and vice versa. Note that if players lost their costumes from the event, they could talk to Diango to get them back. Through dying straight before the system update players could keep the candy!
