I have the perfect contest idea for us too. It’s a game I like to play with myself every summer called “Guess Which Costumes Will Be Most Popular This Halloween.”
Want to play with me? Here’s how:
Some of you super clever DIYers out there come up with original costume ideas year after year. I envy you. I’m not clever like that.
However, I have an eye for what would make good store bought Halloween costumes. It’s not all that hard really. They’re often based on popular movies and TV shows or current events. This goes for both children’s and adult costumes.
This year there are some more major superhero movies out, as well as a big dinosaur one. And Disney’s got a new one out. (Well, Disney Pixar to be exact.) I’d bet money those will be among some of the biggest costumes.
Current events always inspire interesting costume choices: like last year’s Ebola scare. Election season is almost upon us. I’m sure we’ll start seeing some Presidential Wannabe costumes this year. And I’m banking on some more prison ones, in honor of the pair of escapees from the New York jail that, as of this writing, are still on the loose.
Now it’s your turn…
