Every fall, I love to look and see what Halloween costumes are in the display windows of the local shops. What’s popular is almost always a reflection of the biggest movies, shows, and pop culture references of the past year. It’s also great to see how creative costumes get year after year. No matter your age, there are some hot costumes available for the 2011 Halloween festivities. Let’s walk through those virtual aisles together to see what’s in store for the whole family this year…
Halloween Express has all the latest and greatest costumes to outfit your little ones for the big day. With separate top ten lists for baby, toddler, kid, and teen costumes, you can find the perfect one with no hassle at all. Here’s what they had to say were the hottest picks on the shelf:
- TEENS: M&Ms, Wolverine, the Mad Hatter, Jack Sparrow, Spider-Girl, and a few others, including a penguin.
- KIDS: Transformers Bumblebee, Jack Sparrow, Crayola crayons, Captain America, Monster High, and Wolverine, among others.
- TODDLER: Lightning McQueen, Snow White, Raphael (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle), Cookie Monster, Alice in Wonderland, Spider-Man, and everything ballerina (witches, princesses, and butterflies… oh my!)
- BABY: Elmo, Winnie the Pooh, Tinker Bell, garden gnomes, and Batman, among other classics, like spiders.
Mom and dad can have their fun at Halloween as well, together or alone. Halloween Express recommends a few great couples themed costumes for your next Halloween party, if you like the team approach to playing dress-up. Pair up with Pirates of the Caribbean (Jack Sparrow and Angelica), vampires, Popeye & Olive Oyl, Alice in Wonderland (Alice and the Mad Hatter), Toy Story (Woody and Jessie), Marc Anthony & Cleopatra, Oktoberfest, Kermit the Frog & Miss Piggy, zombies, or Nightmare Before Christmas (Sally and Jack).
For an independent costume, there’s a great selection for adults at Halloween Express as well. Pick a category for your perfect shopping options:
- SEXY: female Donatello ninja turtle, pirate, Wonderland Hare, Flashdance, vampire, Top Gun pilot, and more
- FUNNY: beer fest girl (for men), Pee Wee Herman, Waldo, hula girl, Duffman, Rainbow Brite, or the Party Moses.
- PLUS SIZE: Green Lantern, Cleopatra, pirates, Tooth Fairy, Fred Flintstone, and much more.
Of course, there are tons of other great things to be for Halloween this year. For adults, try Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, or your favorite Mad Men character. Kids will have fun dressing up as Harry Potter, one of the Angry Birds, or even Iron Man. Don’t forget the classics either: witches, pirates, vampires, and zombies will reign supreme at Halloween parties this year.
