It’s October. It’s time to start thinking about that haunted holiday and what costumes you and your family should wear. Whether you make an original, hand made costume or find costumes to rent or buy, you should check out what the most popular costumes are for this year.
The iPhone gaming sensation is now the must have costume for Halloween. Those crazy Angry Birds have taken over! They are the most popular costumes for everyone, especially for guys. If you’re looking for a group theme for you office party, Angry Birds are a great idea.
Always a favorite with kids of all age, Harry Potter is always a popular choice for Halloween. Witches, wizards, and magic just seem to go well with Halloween. Easy to piece together at home for that hand-me-down Weasley look, or costume shops every where are bound to have costume kits on hand.
Captain America and superheroes are also a big hit for guys this year. Captain America is another great costume that can be made at home (think trash can lid for a shield). Don’t worry ladies, there are girl superheroes too. Cat Woman is getting a boost from the upcoming Dark Knight Rises movie.
Shiver me timbers! Pirates of all types are wanted by everyone of all types. You don’t have to dress as Jack Sparrow. Boys, girls, guys and gals all want to be pirates.
The movie may have been summer-time flop, but the Smurfs are still a costume hit. Who doesn’t love seeing a pint-sized pre-schooler trick-or-treating all dressed in blue? Not only are they popular with the little ones, Smurfs are still smurfing with the nostalgic adults too.
Guys of all ages wanna be like Mario. Super Mario and Luigi are great costumes for guys. These are great costumes to get creative with. From the overalls to koopa shells, it’s easy to have fun going crazy for your Mario costume.
