According to a 2016 survey, superheroes are making a comeback when it comes to Halloween costumes. For over a decade, princess costumes have ruled the land of Halloween costume choices for kids. However, recent studies have shown that superheroes are back to save the day.
With all of the DC and Marvel movies coming out in recent years, it's no surprise that superhero costumes are becoming more popular. So while about 2.93 million children in America choose to dress as their favorite princess come October, many more are choosing to trade in their crowns for a cape.
But Halloween isn't just for kids. So let's take a look at some of the top choices of Halloween costumes among different age groups.
As previously stated, superheroes are coming back to claim their number one spot. But princess costumes, specifically Frozenattire, are still a top choice. Animals are always a popular choice, especially among toddlers and infants. After all, what's cuter than a baby dressed up as a monkey? And every year sees a few brave little kids in witch hats, ghoul costumes, and other "scary" (but actually extremely cute) outfits.
Young Adult Costumes
As teens and young adults get older, they may find Halloween less exciting. But for those young adults who continue to carry the Halloween spirit in their hearts, superheroes are, again, a popular choice. Miss Harley Quinn will always be a crowd favorite among young women. And what young man doesn't want to live out his childhood dream dressed as Batman? Teen devil costumes are also usually a go-to choice and there's no better way to express your eternal love for each other than by wearing vampire couple costumes.
After going through a temporary "I'm too cool for Halloween" phase, many adults find their love of the holiday once again. Fortunately, Halloween online stores have really stepped up their game when it comes to providing costume choices for adults. There is always a wide variety of plus size mens costumes as well as costume choices for women of all shapes and sizes. Scary costumes for women and men are a popular choice as are ghost, zombie, and witch costumes. For busy parents who spend months planning their kids' costumes but forget about their own, it's common to see them slap on some face paint and a pair of animal ears and call it a day. But whether you're looking for plus size mens costumes or a simple superhero mask, today's Halloween stores have it all.
If you think pets in costumes aren't the cutest thing ever, then you're wrong. Many families choose to include their pets when choosing Halloween costumes. Whether it's a party, a quick Instagram picture, or to help greet trick-or-treaters at the door, pets are often put in pumpkin, bug, and food costumes. After all, what could be cuter than a Weiner dog dressed as a hot dog?
