Halloween is all about fun and treats, parties, dashing through a chilly evening to collect candy, and of course, the costume. Kids’ costumes are easy to select from online outlets to big box store racks. Adult offerings are a bit trickier, and many can be quite elaborate and expensive, depending on the type of party.
According to Spectrem Group’s Millionaire Corner, adults are putting a lot of thought into Halloween this year. Some trends include:
• Younger adults are more likely to be in costume.
• Married couples are more active in Halloween activities (costumes, candy-buying, decorating, etc.) than singles.
• 5 percent of pet owners plan to dress up their pet for Halloween.
Many costumes can be put together through coordinating pieces that share color palates, textures, or themes. Halloween is one of those times when unlikely colors can come together with stripes, polka dots, lace and other accessories to create a trendy look that doesn’t appear homemade. Many costumes or costume kits are available through ETSY.cm. Also, check out Pinterest for ideas and links to patterns, directions, supplies, or sources.
