Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Finding inspiration for Halloween costumes 2014 is as easy as monitoring the hashtag #futurefriday. Costume retailer Trendy Halloween is using the hashtag to help people look forward instead of backward with dominant hashtags #throwbackthursday and #flashbackfriday.
They can share their excitement about events that are coming soon to their lives with #futurefriday. People use the tag to discover what others are looking forward to doing while joining in and tagging their own upcoming plans and future wishes.
“It adds positivity to everyone’s social media feeds. They’ll see what their friends are tagging about the future alongside Halloween costumes 2014,” said Dora Munguia-Alfaro, Trendy Halloween eCommerce & Marketing Director.
She added, “Popular hashtags like #throwbackthursday and #flashbackfriday give the digital collective a negative view. We wanted a positive and forward-looking hashtag so we could contribute new ideas for Halloween costumes to people’s online excitement for costuming. With #futurefriday they can see the trendiest Halloween costumes 2014 entering our inventory.”
Although Trendy Halloween sells retro and vintage costumes, Munguia-Alfaro noted that they are not the largest selling categories. This mismatch between popular retro hashtags and the market launched the #futurefriday idea.
“Our costume store helps people embody literally anything and imagine themselves in new ways. With #futurefriday they can get creative with the newest looks in adult Halloween costumes or kids Halloween costumes,” she said.
The Southern California costume and decoration retailer has started tagging fresh and forward-thinking Halloween costumes coming soon for 2014 and beyond with #futurefriday.
The tagged costumes are linked to current and future popular culture events like the new TMNT movie, opening of NFL football season, season premieres for the Walking Dead and NCIS, the Day of the Dead, Orange is the New Black and many more.
People looking for the hottest new ideas for Halloween costumes or cosplay events can use #futurefriday to spot costumes entering the market at Trendy Halloween’s numerous social media channels at Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google Plus, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest.
At Facebook, costume images for Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have already been revealed at http://www.facebook.com/trendyhalloween.
Guardians of the Galaxy was the retailer’s first use of #futurefriday. The new space adventure movie offers many new inspirations for men and women, including Halloween group costume ideas and Halloween couples costumes.
The hashtag has also already let TMNT fans get their first look at the women’s Raphael costume and child’s Leonardo dress costume from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie that opened on Aug. 8.
“You can help us spot trends. When you see #futurefriday Halloween costumes 2014, leave us a comment about any costumes you’d like to see in your future and share the images with friends to get their opinions,” Munguia-Alfaro said.
Every week Trendy Halloween will continue to look to the future and reveal more Halloween costumes 2014, including:
- Sept. 4, opening of NFL Football season. Fans can add to party festivities with the Touchdown Costume;
- Sept. 23, premier of CBS crime drama NCIS. Be inspired by the Abby lab coat and choker costume and Gibbs vest and cap kit;
- Oct. 28, release of Assassin’s Creed Unity. Gamers can join the #futurefriday excitement and see the new Assassin’s Creed Connor girl costume a week before;
- Oct. 31, through Nov. 2, Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. Spreading far beyond Mexico the Day of the Dead adds more dimensions to people’s costuming choices. Because death is in everyone’s future, Day of the Dead costumes get the #futurefriday hashtag too. Watch out for the Day of the Dead La Catrina flower headband and lace veil;
- Beyond the Halloween season, #futurefriday will help people find Thanksgiving and Christmas costumes like the Pilgrim men’s costume and the Elf on the Shelf costume;
- And coming in 2015 the hashtag will show off the new Super Mario Bros U.
“By late September and early October most new costumes will be in the store’s online inventory,” said Munguia-Alfaro. “And keep following the hashtag to see when our costumes from the Walking Dead and Orange is the New Black get here.” Find more 2014 costumes at http://www.trendyhalloween.com/new-halloween-2014.aspx.
