Some Halloween costumes are classics you see year after year, like witches. Other costumes seem to have a short shelf life and fade after a few years when their time has passed, especially with kids’ costumes. Their attention span doesn’t always hold from year to year, and that Halloween costume they desperately wanted last year may be forgotten this year. For 2019, there are several kinds of Halloween costumes trending.
Superhero Halloween Costumes
Superheroes are always popular. It’s an opportunity for kids to feel powerful and a bit invincible. Over the years, some superheroes have fallen in popularity while others have risen, but there are a few who have remained very popular year after year, including Batman and Supergirl. More recently, girls have been loving Halloween Empire’s Harley Quinn costume and both boys and girls are increasingly wanting to dress as the Flash this Halloween. You’ll see lots of Avengers out there this year as well. The popularity of movies with these superheroes is one reason for their immense popularity.
Movie and Book Based Halloween Costumes
Speaking of movies, there are lots of kids who want to dress up like their favorite movie or book character for trick-or-treating fun. By far the most popular is our wonderful selection of Harry Potter costumes based on both the literary classics and the popular movies. You can be Harry, Ron or Hermione, or choose a robe from the houses of Slytherin or Gryffindor. Halloween Empire even has the perfect Harry Potter wand to complete your look.
Another popular movie franchise that’s spawning lots of Halloween costumes for kids this year is the comedy, “Ghostbusters.” While the Ghostbusters uniform (complete with power pack) is the most popular from this movie, there are also kids who want to be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Our Stay Puft kid’s costume is the cutest you’ll find, and so much fun to wear!
Pirate Halloween Costumes
Kids have been dressing up as pirates since “Treasure Island” was published, and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise has definitely brought pirates roaring back into even greater popularity. Both boys and girls long to be buccaneers. We’re not sure if it’s because they get to talk like a pirate (Arrrgh! Ahoy, Matey! Walk the Plank, ye scurvy dog!) or because pirate Halloween Costumes are just so awesome to wear. Regardless of why your kids want to dress like pirates, we have the right sizes and styles.
Princess Halloween Costumes
There are plenty of little girls who continue to dream about being a princess. Disney movies and popular fairytales keep the interest high and Halloween Empire provides lots of gorgeous princess costumes and accessories for little girls of all ages. Whether your girl longs to be a true Tudor princess or an exotic princess straight out of “Arabian Nights,” we have costumes featuring all the shimmering fabrics, sequins and gold trim a princess’ heart desires.
Even teens and tweens want to celebrate Halloween, but they often go for the gore more than their younger siblings. We carry a line of zombie costumes designed just for them that have the desired gore factor. They can choose from several zombie Halloween costumes such as a zombie cheerleader, zombie jock or zombie schoolkids. A zombie makeup kit provides the finishing touches for your favorite ghoul, and be sure to read our “Basic Zombie Makeup Tutorial” for tips on proper application.
