The demand for Halloween costumes, props and accessories is expected to be at an all-time high for 2007. Heather Siegel, Vice President of costume store HalloweenMart has watched the costume industry grow over the past few years and agrees, "The trend for 2007 Halloween costumes is definitely leaning toward movie character costumes, sexy costumes and superhero costumes." Siegel adds, "While traditional costumes like French maids and pirates consistently rank high on the list of Halloween favorites, each year sees its own costume trends."
For kids, storybook themes often top Halloween costumes trends lists, but for 2007 there is a definite silver screen influence with ninja costumes, Spiderman and Simpsons costumes expected to lead the list. And with so many blockbuster movies this year, Siegel says, "HalloweenMart is prepared for dramatic sales of Transformer costumes, Captain Jack Sparrow costumes and Shrek costumes."
In adult costumes, sexy costumes for women have also seen a lot of growth over the last few years, as TV shows like The Girls Next Door increased demand for Playboy costumes. Halloween is when women think its fun and safe to let their alter egos emerge and have fun dressing in French maid costumes, mermaid costumes and pirate wench costumes. But Ms. Siegel says that another Halloween costume trend for women this year is sexy sports-chick costumes, thanks in large part to the ever-growing popularity of Nascar. "You can expect to see ladies in sexy Nascar costumes, referee costumes and even boxer costumes at costume parties nationwide."
And finally, in adult costumes for men, 2007 trends are all about superheroes. As always, Star Wars costumes and Spiderman costumes top the Halloween costume trends list, but this year you can also expect to see plenty of Superman costumes and 300 character costumes because of the blockbuster movie based on the comic book. And what will men who don't want to save the planet be for Halloween 2007? Ms. Siegel says "Look for a lot of Elvis impersonators this year."
