The latest and greatest costumes for Halloween this season – what are they and how can you pick them up with little stress?
Depending on the list you find online, what is hot this year may take you on a journey from Iron Man all the way to Lady Gaga. And while making the best choice isn’t always an easy endeavor, consider where and how long you will be wearing your costume before making the final decision. For example, a costume with a mask might not be the best choice if you’re going out to dinner or to a party where munchies are available.
Popular choices include:
Heroes: Captain America, Green Lantern, and the Three Musketeers.
Movie personalities: Harry Potter, Jack Sparrow, Mad Hatter, and Conan the Barbarian.
Fun costumes: Twister, Crayola, banana, penguin and M&M.
Out of the ordinary: Bee, Spider-Girl, Peacock Gal, Royal Wedding, Julius Caesar, and GlowMan.
Never out of style: Ghost, skeleton, zombie, Dracula and cat.
Costumes for your pet are also available and can give you a coordinated look for your next Halloween experience, no matter where you spend it.
In searching for your Halloween attire, try some online sources this season, and don’t forget the nearest thrift store and your very own bedroom closet.
In the long run, being “in” this year has more to do with your creative genius and less with the latest and greatest movie you want to advertise. Often, the remembered costumes for Halloween are the ones that are out of the ordinary disguises—will you ever forget the purple grapes made from blown up balloons and stuck all over your friend’s body?— that keep folks laughing or guessing, or even a little of both.
