PureCostumes.com’s sales indicate that the Kyle Busch Toddler Costume and the Danica Patrick Adult Costume are top favorites amongst its customers.
The top costume category for women this October seems to be fairytale costumes (here).

Many styles even come complete with matching accessories, which appeals to shoppers for the convenience it offers. PureCostumes.com reports that the Dark Red Riding Hood Adult Costume and Tinkerbell Adult Costume by California Costume Collections are its best sellers for this category.
Animal costumes (here) are also a big seller for Pure Costumes this month. Many animal costume styles have taken on a new spin, becoming much more fashionable and resulting in fun and feminine designs.
