Halloween is now one week away! Our big Halloween party, Monster Bash, is only a few days away. It is probably time to start thinking about costumes! I still haven't figured out what I am going to be, but maybe you have? What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Here's a look at what some costume shops across the country are reporting is popular so far:

  • NFL replacement ref costumes had "have flown out the door" at the Mallet Pharmacy and Costume in Madison Wisconsin.
  • The Garment District in Cambridge, Ma. says at least one creative customer put together a "workout Paul Ryan" costume using items from their store.
  • At Costume World Dallas, the most popular costume of the year is the Kia Dancing Hampsters. They also report that their priest set with wig and curlers is popular to make a "holy roller" costume.
  • Gene's Costumes in Kensington, MD reports that their most popular costumes involve Decades like '70's and 80's and 20's, pirates, superheroes, Renaissance costumes, vampires and zombies.
