If you are like most Halloween enthusiasts you have probabaly already started planning for your halloween party and the costume you are going to wear this year. Every year we a see lot of trends come and go. And, the current events and movies have a lot of bearing on what costumes will be popular every year. This year is no exception and we have compiled a list of costumes/themes we think will be the most popular. You may use this list as an inspiration to pick your costume or to help you avoid the most common costumes.
1. Alice in Wonderland movie costumes
Tim Burton's epic 3D fantasy adventure that release past spring was mildly successful at the box office inspite of the spectacular performances by the cast and stunning animation magic. Critics griped about the lack of substance and boring plot. Nonetheless, we believe that the costumes will be a hit. Mad Hatter's elaborate get is sure to be a winner this year. The Red Queen will be popular among the ladies.
James Cameron's blockbuster movie with a super natural touch was a hit last year. Avatar is a story of a paraplegic marine names Jake Sully, who replaces his dead brother on a secret mission on the planet of Pandora. He eventually falls in love with Neytiri, a Na'vi princess and strives to save the Na'vi people from humans who are bent on destroying them. So, its going to be a lot of blue this halloween. Jake Sully and Neytiri costumes are expected to be a hit among adults as well as kids.
Thanks for this one goes to the disgruntled and over worked Jet Blue Flight Attendant who became and instant face book fan after his bold and dramatic exit from the plane. What is even more amazing is that he didn't forget his beer on his way out. Even though it Steven Slater got his 15 mins of fame in the media, was jailed and released on bail, and probably won't be working in the airline industry anytime soon, he gave us this awesome halloween costume idea. Expect to see a lot of airline themed costumes like pilot, female flight attendants and captains.
They say she's got the look ( a million of them). Lady gaga is known for her bizzare, glittery and outlandish outfits during her performances. Some question if shes really bizzare or is she a marketing genius. No better way to attract attention than to dress different, right? Well, you can attract all the attention you deserve by following in her foot steps this halloween. I am going to support her and her costumes for her efforts against the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.
This is a long time favorite of Halloween enthusiasts. Made popular by Pirates of the Carribean movies starring Jonny Depp these costumes have been popular even before the movie came out. Kids are particulary fond of these costumes. So we'll see lot young pirates this Halloween for sure.
