2016’s Most Popular Halloween Looks
Tis the season for spooky fun and frights! The magical moment of make believe is finally upon us and to get you ready, Spirit Halloween has opened more than 1,200 seasonal Halloween stores in neighborhoods across the country.
It’s THE place to find the latest costumes for all ages, plus decor like these cool Sugar Skull figurines (just one of many decor options). They even have animatronics to turn any home into a haunted house. Spirit Halloween has you covered!
Now let’s talk costumes! Here are some of 2016’s most popular ways to fright and delight.
These new Crayola costumes are so cute! They would make an awesome group costume. You could collaborate with friends to bring a rainbow of Crayola crayons to life. It’s an easy last-minute costume idea, and also perfect for teachers celebrating Halloween and creativity in the classroom!
Fierce, fearless females still rule the realm this year! With super heroines Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Woman as well as real-life heroes: doctors, police officers and firefighters. You could even create a coordinated mom/daughter duo since these come in all sizes!
This year you can also expect to see a lot of political fun! America's top candidates for president are the most controversial to date. Spirit Halloween has realistic and hilarious candidate masks and wigs for a creative political statement.
And for all the gamers out there - level-up with the phenomenon that took the world by storm this year: Pokémon.
Other fan-favorite gamer costumes for 2016 include Fallout, Assassin's Creed and Five Nights at Freddy's.
Here’s what’s trending for the tykes…
They can choose from today's most-loved cartoon friends, including official styles you won't find anywhere else from PJ Masks, Shimmer and Shine, Paw Patrol and Blaze and the Monster Machines.
Even my own little monsters have already picked their favorites… Charlie is rocking the Baby Waldo Coverall, fitting since I’m always trying to track him down!
And his best buddy Casidee is probably the cutest little red riding hood in all the land!
Check out Jack’s Gekko Costume - this is a Spirit Halloween exclusive from Pj Masks!
And here’s a festive way to give back once you’re done shopping. At Spirit's register, shoppers can donate to Spirit of Children, which focuses on making hospitals less scary for kids and their families. 100% of the money collected is given directly to the Child Life Departments at local partner hospitals for programs like music, art, pet therapy, staffing and so much more.
Now that’s a Halloween treat worth giving.
