Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. October 25, 2004. Costume rentals and sales are continuing the trend toward a more traditional old-fashioned Halloween. Politics, elections, the economy, and war are out.

“We are seeing people wanting to have more fun and go back to their youth” Said Rich Williamson President of Pierre’s Costumes in Philadelphia. “Halloween is a time to act like a kid without getting in trouble for doing that” he continued. Halloween is steadily growing and is the second largest consumer holiday next to Christmas.

People are spending more money and are expecting a better quality product. “The caveman costume in a bag might have served your needs in 5th grade, but adults today want to wear something that allows them to go out in public without being embarrassed” said Williamson. More and more customers are renting their costumes since this service allows them to wear Movie quality costumes altered to their sizes without paying full price.

The most popular Halloween costume rentals for 2004 are:

Kings & Queens (along with Princesses and Princes too).

Pimps & Ho’s (The tackier the better)

Colonial Ballwear (more elaborate evening wear).

Gangsters & Flappers

Pirates & Wenches (female Pirates too)

Egyptian, Roman and Greek

Southern Belles and their Gentlemen.

Venetian Ball Costumes.

“Nick at Night” styles (I dream of Jeannie, Westerns, Brady Bunch).

Very elaborate Wizards and Witches.
