Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 2, 2010
HalloweenMart.com, a Las Vegas based retailer of Halloween costumes and costume accessories, as well as the very first online Halloween costume retailer, is announcing the top selling costume predictions for the 2010 Halloween season.
“We are seeing high volumes of costume purchases based on pop culture, movies and television.” said Carrie Sheerin from HalloweenMart. “We are seeing lots of interest in costumes from movies like Alice In Wonderland and Iron Man for adults, as well as Spiderman, Toy Story and Harry Potter for kids. Our most popular costumes this year are male and female versions of The Mad Hatter and Alice, as well as Iron Man and Spiderman character costumes.”
“We are seeing the most costume interest in pop culture characters like Lady Gaga and Jersey Shore.” said Sheerin. “We expected Lady Gaga costumes and accessories to be popular this year, but her recent appearances and publicity have really just pushed the interest to a whole new level. She will definitely be the most popular female costume this year.” When asked about other pop culture costumes that will be popular, Sheerin said “Michael Jackson costumes will be popular again this year, as well as Kiss band members and sexy Playboy style costumes.”
For children, Halloween Mart is predicting a season that will be dominated by movie characters, with a few of the traditionally popular costumes factored in as well. “We will see huge interest in the Toy Story characters, as well as Iron Man, Spiderman, Harry Potter and Super Mario Brothers. We always see a large interest in the traditional popular costumes like mermaids and vampires as well, but this year will be the year of the movie characters. Even our traditionally popular costumes will see added interest because of movies, like vampires being far more popular because of the Twilight saga and True Blood.”
