    This year, even the Statue of Liberty will be getting dressed up for Halloween, according to USA Today.

    The newspaper reports that Joe Boxer founder Nick Graham is planning to fly vividly colored 60-foot-wide bow ties hanging from helicopters in front of Lady Liberty beginning 8 a.m. Oct. 31 to mark the launch of an eponymous menswear brand.

    The bow ties, one black and one white, will pass about 1,000 feet in front of the statue to create the illusion that the monument is wearing the neck wear.

    "It's going to be a big collection, so what better way to launch it than the Statue of Liberty," Graham told USA Today.

    Two ties will pass in front of the statue for several hours before heading up the Hudson River.

    Graham said the stunt hasn’t been approved yet by the FAA.

    The National Park Service said it is aware of the plans, but wouldn’t have any say about the flyby since the helicopters won’t pass directly over Liberty Island.
