Believe it or not, the month of October is really just around the corner, and Halloween and costume enthusiasts are already getting their costumes ready for this year’s fall festivities. In recent years we’ve seen many Lady Gaga costumes on Halloween night, but this year, party goers will likely be trying for all new costumes this year.
There is already much speculation going around as to what the most popular Halloween costumes will be for October 2011. With the release of the new Transformer sequel coming out, transformer character costumes are predicted to be popular this year. Ready-made Optimus Prime and Bumblebee costumes will likely be seen on store shelves and available online.
Costumes based on the character’s of Avatar are also said to still be in popular demand as many have said they plan to dress up as Jake Sully or Neytiri to show their love for the film. With the release of action packed comic book based films like The Green Hornet, The Green Lantern, and Captain America, superhero costumes could very well be bigger than ever this Halloween season.
Harry Potter costumes are predicted to be popular with kids and pre-teens this year after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and parents might consider dressing their younger children as the Dementors.
Retailers are getting ready to give adults, teens, kids, and even toddlers a lot more to choose from this year. Whether you decide to go with a ready-made popular costume, get a custom made costume, or to go the DIY route this Halloween, make sure to get an early start planning and creating your look. Remembering the details such as wigs, accessories, and makeup takes time as does choosing the perfect costume. You won’t want to let Halloween 2011 sneak up on you while you miss the party!
