Halloween Costume Trends

Halloween is right around the corner, and every shop has dozens of options from trendy costumes to the classics. So how do you narrow it down?

“It depends on the person, I match every single person height, size, what they plan on doing and what their families are doing,” Manager of Spirit Halloween in Naperville, Ashley Hawks said.

Superheroes seem to be the big trend for kids and adults this year.

“Superheroes are back this year, Disney princesses for girls and then they went really zombie, a lot of monster high. We have a whole zombie wall and that seems to be where they are all going,” Hawks said.

Many families are getting the whole gang involved with themed costumes.

“Ninja Turtles are big, a lot of families are getting the cousin involved so they have the set of four,” Hawks said.

Couple costumes are always a favorite. Pop culture is playing a big role in what they dress as this year.

“If he’s doing medieval she will do medieval, I think that has a lot to do with “Game of Thrones” being such a popular show,” Hawks said.

Once you’ve got the perfect costume for yourself, you can’t forget some “spooktacular” trimmings for your home.

“We’ve got a lot of home décor, so people can create their own haunted house or creep themselves out at home,” said Hawks.
