Halloween Costume Predictions

By | July 22, 2011 at 12:55 am | No comments | Costumes

There is a new interest in Halloween costumes that has not been seen in the last few years, probably because the economic situation has forced so many people to pick costumes that are less elaborate than in past years, opting for cheap halloween costumes for adults instead of the ones they really wanted. As the economic situation in the United States begins to turn around, people are beginning to feel the spirit of Halloween celebration that they were feeling in the past, and many are expressing an interest in going a little further with their costume this year. This does not necessarily mean that they want to spend more money, but moreover that they are feeling the fun spirit of celebration that they have not been feeling for the last few years because the economy put such a dark cloud over parties and celebrations. With that said, 2011 looks like it is going to be the year that people begin celebrating again….

2011 Halloween Costumes

Sexy Halloween costumes never really went away, but it is safe to say that this year we are going to see a rise in the amount of sexy costumes that are sold due to the fact that the large-scale events and parties are expecting larger attendence numbers this year. For the past two years, we have seen attendance at the big Halloween celebrations getting smaller, with a few of the high profile events even cancelling due to poor ticket sales. 2011 looks like it is going to be different, as interest in the events throughout all major cities is growing, and many people are beginning to make plans to attend. Because these are generally adlut-oriented events, we can expect there to be brisk sales of the sexy Halloween costumes that these types of parties attract. If you plan on attending a large-scale party this year and need a sexy or erotic costume, it might be a good idea to shop early.

Halloween Costumes

Little Red Riding Hood and other movie costumes will be increasingly popular this year. There are several high profile movies that are being released from now until Halloween that will surely influence the Halloween costume choices of the public because the characters are so visually striking. The “Red Riding Hood” movie will influence brisk sales of red capes and other Victorian items. Additionally, the next in the “Pirates Of The Caribbean” series of movies is due to be released in the next few months, which should create brisk sales of pirate oriented costumes and items. There are also going to be increrased “pirate-theme” parties before Halloween, so stocking up on pirate costumes is suggested to avoid sellouts of the items you need.

Halloween Costumes

Lastly, we should be seeing increased sales in children’s Halloween costumes that have to do with Vampires and other elements involved in the “Twilight” saga. Increased attention is being seen in these types of searches online and in social media like Facebook and Twitter. With the increases in discussion on these topics being seen this early in the season, you can bet that it will translate into elevated sales of the associated costumes.
