2012 Costume Shopping Guide

For those of you who will continue hitting the snooze button on costume shopping until the absolute last minute, HalloweenCostumes.com has got you covered. In fact, standing out this Halloween doesn’t have to be a labor of love. It’s quicker and easier than you’d think, especially when you consider doing your Halloween shopping from the comfort of your home. To help you out, here's an overview of the star-studded, funny, scary and trendy lineup of top 2012 Halloween costumes!



Top Costumes for the Kiddos


1. Superhero Costumes - Last year, superhero blockbusters popped up more times than Robin could say, “Holy [insert topical word] Batman!” in the Adam West days. That’s right; once again Hollywood has blazed a trail for a host of winning superhero costumes.

2. Girly vs Creepy and Everything Between - An interesting new trend in popular girl’s costumes is the melding of “creepy/cute” and everything in between. All across the spectrum, from ultra-creepy looks like gothic ragdolls and zombies to the “ultra-feminine” world of colorful cupcakes, frilly monsters and animals, these costumes are sure to be seen this year.
     
3. Angry Birds - Last year’s surprise success of angry birds had retailers scrambling to replenish the shelves. This year, with Angry Birds Space and two new characters hitting the scene, flocks of these tunic-style costumes are sure to be flying off the shelves.

4. Star Wars - With the release of the Star Wars saga in 3D, this storied franchise will be popular again in 2012, especially among children. These costumes make a smart addition for homes with several growing children, because they never lose their relevance and make great hand-me-downs year after year.




Top Costumes for Adults


1. Zombies - From pub crawls to the continued popularity of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” zombie popularity continues to spread in 2012. Another twist to consider is going as a zombie politician or celebrity! Whether gory, or “sexy-scary,” there are options for every kind of look.

2. Monsters - With the growing popularity of club culture and electronic music continuing to gain momentum, club fashion continues to influence Halloween costume preferences this year. For women, 2012 is the prime year for neon monsters, wild colors, whacky tights, fur leg warmers and candy-colored wigs.

3. Superheroes - Like parent, like child. The rising “comic culture” will translate into adult costumes as well, as the avengers make appearances at Halloween parties across the nation. Women catsuits, with their flattering sillhoettes, will also be a major go-to costume this year.

4. Costume T-Shirts - These make great costumes for last-minute shoppers who want to do something for Halloween, but don’t necessarily want to strain themselves. With reasonable pricing and complete versatility, these costumes (such as a pirate) are sure to find a place in the night scene this year.
