Don't Know What to Wear for That Halloween Party? Go Gangnam! This Halloween go Gangnam Style: The Hottest Costume of 2012

The hottest fashion and costume for Halloween this year is the signature Gangnam powder blue tuxedo jacket trimmed in black. But where to buy it? Only at

It was clear to me that Gangnam Style was going to be the hottest Halloween costume of the year.

Pop culture Korean singer, Psy, has hit big with his song ‘Gangnam Style’. The song is currently ranked #2 on Billboard charts. The video has had more views on YouTube – over 436 million and counting – than any other video in YouTube history.

Now media from the Huffington Post to MTV Style have declared the powder blue tuxedo jacket one of the hottest Halloween costumes of 2012.

The only problem is that it didn’t seem like anyone would be able to sell it. After all, the Gangnam phenomenon only began very recently. Larger companies that normally supply Halloween costumes had placed their orders months ago. They couldn’t move fast enough to capture the trend.

The opportunity was there to outfit hundreds of thousands of potential Gangnam Halloween partiers. But it was going to take some good old-fashioned ingenuity and hard work to make a Gangnam Style Halloween tuxedo jacket in time. It was going to take people who would take a risk and think big to make the impossible, possible.

Business partners Peter Tangen and Dana Precious are those people. They appear to be the only ones who managed to manufacture the signature powder blue tuxedo jacket in time for the Halloween party season. It’s available only online at

“Peter spotted the trend and had the idea,” said Dana. “When he talked to me about making the Gangnam Style Halloween tuxedo jacket, I told him he was crazy. I said there wasn’t enough time. But here we are less than a month later and we are up and selling.” Peter says, “I knew the idea would work. The question was if we could make it work in time. We hustled and got the manufacturers going, the website up, and figured out about a million details. Now it’s the Halloween fashion of the year.”

Dana Precious is the former executive vice president of worldwide marketing at Marvel Studios working on film blockbusters like Thor and Captain America. Peter Tangen is an entertainment photographer who has photographed film talent from Shia LaBeouf to Anthony Hopkins.
