Happy Halloween! If you're looking for easy last minute DIY Halloween costumes, you're in luck. The most popular Halloween costumes are the Minions from "Despicable Me 2" and Miley Cyrus, the twerking pop star, reported Tampa Bay Times on Oct. 29, 2013.
Not surprisingly, the most popular Halloween costumes this year for adults and children are Minions Halloween costumes, "Breaking Bad's" Walter White and Jesse Pinkman costumes, "The Walking Dead" zombies, the stars of "Duck Dynasty" and foxes from YouTube, according to The Globe and Mail on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
Tom Fallenstein, chief executive officer of Halloweencostumes.com reported,
"The Minions 'Despicable Me' Halloween costumes are almost all sold out already. Our fox costume sold out in early September. Luckily, Miley Cyrus is back in stock, twerking for $68.99."
Thankfully, you can make these last minute Halloween costumes and more easily in time for tonight's Halloween trick or treating outing.
For example, the Minions' Halloween costume is nothing more than a yellow hoodie, a pair of denim overalls, and a pair of leggings that can be purchased in most stores like Walmart, Target or Kmart. Grab some round, plastic see-through jewelery boxes for the Minion's goggles and you're done! Check out more DIY Halloween costumes from Huffington Post.
And get this... The National Retail Federation says Halloween costumes will rake in approximately $2.6 billion this year, more than on Halloween candy or decorations! Not only that, but Halloween Pet costumes are also a big money item with pet lovers spending about $330 million on Spot and Fluffy's costumes.
Are you ready for Halloween tonight? How much did you spend on halloween costumes and candy this year? Hopefully it was worth it when your kids come home with pillow cases full of their favorite Halloween treat!
