It’s that time of the year when tricks, treats, trends and pumpkin spice lattes take over. This can only mean one thing: Halloween! Commonly known as “the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it,” to quote Mean Girls. This year, that may be true, especially since “Miley Cyrus costume” is making the ranks as the 2nd most popular Google search. Surprise, surprise, our previous question regarding Miley’s publicity has been answered: there is no such thing as bad publicity.
Aside from the obvious trend in wrecking balls, teddy bears and foam fingers, what else can we expect to see when trick-or-treaters take to the streets? We’ll probably see our fair share of witches, cats, pirates, etc., but as a marketing and PR firm, we’re more intrigued by the creative and innovative Halloween costumes that people come up with.
An easy (yet trendy) outfit we foresee being a hit? We’ll give you a hint: what does the fox say?
We’ve already covered this trend in a previous blog post, and are pretty sure we’ll see some foxes breaking out in song and dance this Halloween. Maybe we’ll finally be able to answer that infamous question…
Another trendy costume for 2013: the little yellow Minions from Despicable Me. Whether you get your adorable minion costume from a store or DIY – please, keep it G rated.
We’ve covered movie caricatures and viral videos – but our list would not be complete without TV-inspired costumes from popular shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and Duck Dynasty. Yes, whether you wish to channel your inner Walter White, Khaleesi or Willie Robertson, there’s a costume for that – along with 10 DIYs from YouTube to assist you with the project.
Whatever it is you decide to be for Halloween – don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Word on the street is that the most unique costumes get extra candy… but don’t quote us on that. Also, don’t neglect your furry friends! They want to be a part of the festivities too (yes, pet costumes are trending!).
So sit down with that pumpkin spice latte and let your creative juices flow! Use the web and do some research for costume ideas. We’d love to see what you come up with!
