Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2008
The Dark Knight, which grossed approximately $155.3 million in ticket sales during the opening weekend alone and is still selling out theaters, has inspired more than just movie-going. The obsession with this film was evident before it even came out, according to Eastern Toys, a leading seller of toys and Halloween costumes. The online retailer saw a huge expansion in the sale of adult costumes and children's costumes inspired by the film and they continue to sell Dark Knight products in huge numbers.
Eastern Toys specializes in Halloween costumes, but with the unprecedented popularity of this blockbuster motion picture they have been selling huge numbers of costumes months before Halloween. They also carry toys and other merchandise for a movie buff's collection in addition to these children's costumes and adult costumes. Anyone who was present at the opening weekend of the film surely saw kids and adults alike dressed up as Batman or the Joker, and many of these costumes came from Eastern Toys. Comic Con, the recent four-day convention that attracts pop culture lovers to San Diego from all over the world, also inspired attendees to dress like they were straight out of Gotham.
Dark Knight Halloween costumes are expected to be a big hit this year as well, and Eastern Toys will continue carrying their Dark Knight merchandise to meet the seasonal demand. During Halloween and the comic convention season that lasts from late summer through the end of fall, the demand for children's and adult costumes inspired by the heroes and villains of this film is expected to be tremendous. Eastern Toys carries a huge selection of ¾ masks and officially licensed wigs to complete the adult costumes inspired by Heath Ledger's scary portrayal of the Joker. They also carry Batman costumes in small, medium and large sizes inspired by Christian Bale's character, complete with boot tops, cape, headpiece, belt and authentically styled muscle chest.
There is also no shortage of children's costumes for the little Batmans and Jokers. Eastern Toys carries a whole line of costumes that allow children to portray Batman or the Joker in as much detail as he or she would like. For the really tiny ones, they carry toddler sized Batman costumes that include the headpiece, jumpsuit and cape. For slightly older fan boys or girls they carry muscle tips, boot tops, headpieces and belts with additional accessories such as molded belts, gauntlets and batarangs. Little Jokers will also enjoy Halloween costumes inspired by the villain with mix and match accessory sets that even include makeup.
All of these children's costumes, adult costumes, accessories and toys are authentic, licensed Dark Knight merchandise. For more information, visit http://www.EasternToys.com.
