WeChat Launches the Orange Lantern and Halloweeny Sticker Sets to Celebrate Halloween

WeChat Halloween Stickers, WeChat app by Tencent, China chat app

Along with BBM and imo.im, Tencent’s WeChat has also decided to release some sticker to celebrate Halloween. The new stickers depict three original WeChat characters called the Orange Lantern and Winnie and and Benjamin (Halloweeny).

WeChat describes The Orange Lantern as follows:

“This little hero is here to save all the trick-o-treaters from dastardly spooks and candy thieves so that every kid gets their sugar goodies for the night.

His source of power comes from chocolate candies like Kit Kats, Twix and Snickers. And his weakness? Healthy vegetables. Blech.”

As for Winnie and Benjamin in Halloweeny, they’ve taken a slightly different approach:

“Winnie, a little witch, is a minnie drama queen and loves being the center of attention. This silly witch is a free spirit who enjoys dancing in the sky and cooking for her friends. But be careful not to eat too many dishes prepared from her cauldron. You’ll never know what will be inside. She has the power to bewitch you instantly.

Benjamin is a polite little vampire who is known for his smarts and kind heart. What is his favorite dish prepared by Winnie? A delicious blood bag filled to the top! For him, biting humans for blood is too violent, so he resorts to these “food packets.” This gentle creature loves his music and movies. Interesting fact: When Benjamin is in a great mood, he’ll turn into a bat!”

Both sticker sets can be downloaded via the WeChat sticker shop. Make sure you have the latest version of WeChat downloaded on your device. Have a happy Halloween!
