What are the most popular Halloween costumes for 2010? According to a press release by Party City, it looks like some of the most popular Halloween costumes of this year are going to be on different ends of the color spectrum, as some revelers opt for orange skin while others smother themselves with blue body paint or attempt to powder themselves pale. Here’s a look at these characters that require a lot of makeup and a few others that will be inspiring popular Halloween costumes in 2010:
Twilight Halloween Costumes – You can bet Halloween costumes based on the modern-day version of the vampire will be popular yet again in 2010, as girls get their guys to don an Edward Cullen wig and honey-colored contact lenses. It’s just a shame Bella’s look has to be so boring; if you attempt to dress like her, you almost look like you’re not wearing a costume at all.
80’s Halloween Costumes – Madonna is making a comeback in a big way in 2010, as her wild 80’s style becomes inspiration for some of this year’s most popular Halloween costumes. And if you don’t like her lacy and racy look with fingerless gloves, leggings, and accessories galore, you can always go with Pat Benetar’s more simplistic style or dress up like wild child Cyndi Lauper circa “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”. You’ll find a DIY Madonna Halloween costume idea in this article, as well as ideas for a few other Halloween costumes based on pop stars from different eras.
