Consumer Trends Show Halloween More Popular with Adults than Ever

Share Article

Pin Up Girl Clothing's extensive selection of sexy role-play costumes and accessories meets consumer demand for high-quality adult costumes in this $5 billion industry.

When it comes to retail spending and the holidays, Halloween ranks only second to Christmas. A $5 billion industry and growing, 60 percent of consumers reported taking part in some type of Halloween celebration in 2007 and spending an estimated $1.82 billion in costumes alone, according to the National Retail Federation. As a leading retailer of unique, sexy adult Halloween costumes since 1999, Pin Up Girl Clothing continues to dominate the industry and meet this growing trend with its impressive selection of role-play costumes. This week's featured costume selections are from Pin Up Girl's French Court line.    

Shoppers desiring to make a striking impression this Halloween will not have to look any further than Pin Up Girl's Marie Antoinette and Ladies in Waiting costumes. The ultra-sexy Silver Brocade and Pink-and-Gold Brocade Marie Antoinette costumes are cut from gorgeous, quality fabric. Each costume includes a heavy-duty ruffled corset, mini skirt, sleeves, and hat. For a more traditional take, the Full-length Gold Brocade Marie Antoinette costume includes a floor-length skirt, heavy-duty ruffled jacket, wired petticoat, and hat. The sexy Leg Avenue Lady Versailles costume includes a pale pink and white brocade mini dress, cameo bow details, and cameo bow stockings.
Matching wigs, cameo necklace and earring sets, ruffle shorts, petticoats, stockings, shoes, and false eyelashes are all available as accessories, and online product recommendations make the shopping experience even more convenient.

Most costumes are available in a wide-range of sizes, and a comprehensive size conversion chart takes the guesswork out of sizing. Costumes are returnable and/or exchangeable until October 15, 2008. Worldwide shipping is available and domestic shipping is free on orders over $150.
