The Daily Halacha Moment - Getting Dressed On Purim 🎭
״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)
“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)
What is the custom of getting dressed on Purim?
Some people have the custom to wear a costume on Purim.
A man may not dress as a woman on Purim. 
One may not dress up as a priest on Purim.
If one must pray with his costume, he may, but it should not cover his face. 
The “custom” of making fun or embarrassing others, even one’s rabbis, on Purim should be abolished, and certainly not practiced.
