As you all know, October 31st is just around the corner and that means that people all over the United States will be dressing up in costumes to attend Halloween parties or to go door to door trick or treating for candy. There are many old favorite costumes and some classic costumes, but here are a few ideas of costumes that will be popular this year that might never be popular again.
The first one is a Lady Gaga costume. I would not recommend that any child go out dressed like her, but a teen might decide too or even a younger adult. (I know my children would be mortified if I were to leave the house looking like her.) Lady Gaga is a very popular pop musician right now and her outfits seem to be crazy anyway so they make a perfect fit for the holiday. If you search for Lady Gaga costumes you may be shocked at how many are offered or at what is offered as she has a very unique way of showing up to shows and awards programs in shocking attire. Odd, but interesting makes for a perfect costume.
The next one that I am going to mention is a very unique idea and I give my husband the credit for this one. He mentioned that people will be dressing up as Steven Slater- the Jet Blue Flight Attendant who was fired earlier in the year due to an altercation with a passenger and then leaving the plane in a rather unusual way. As I began to wonder if anyone else had this idea, I done a search on AOL to find out and found that it does come up, but for the most part it seems to be considered a stupid idea. However, I think if you are wanting to make a statement and add a little fun to the evening, this would be a hit. I also believe it would be a real conversation starter.
My third thought was geared more for kids and possibly teens, but an Avatar costume. I am sure that some adults could possibly be seen in these as well, but I would think that it would be better for kids and teens.The Avatars are popular fictional characters on the show “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. This show is an Asian based show and deals with martial arts. When I searched for Avatar costumes I found that there were 244,000 links. I am assuming that there will be many Avatars roaming around this Halloween.
The next idea that I think will be popular among tweens, teens, college students and younger adults are the characters from the popular reality show “Jersey Shore“. “Jersey Shore” seems to be getting a lot of attention these days and I believe that we will see a lot of these costumes out for Halloween. “Snooki” is one of the most popular girls on the show and I believe that many young ladies will be going for that look for Halloween. As I searched these ideas, I found198,000 related links just for Snooki alone.
Finally the last idea is for younger kids and that would be anything related to “Toy Story 3″. Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and Jessie have been popular costumes in the past, but with the recent release of “Toy Story 3”,. these characters will once again be roaming the streets and invading our sidewalks this year. With Andy going off to college this year, it is possible that we will not see a return of these characters. It is sad that they may be gone, but many kids will be fans of these three characters for a long time to come.
Whether you are looking for traditional costumes or something out of the ordinary, if you search Halloween costumes on line, I am sure that you will find something that interests you and is sign of your personality or a sign of what you wish you could be. Dress up and have fun! Halloween is not just for ghosts and goblins anymore.
