While some people spend dozens of hours creating DIY Halloween costumes that look like they came straight off a movie set, most of us take the easy way out and buy ours. Spirit Halloween is a go-to shopping spot for the holiday, as they say they’re the “World’s #1 Costume Store.” Their marketing manager, Marisa Uzzolino, is revealing the most popular Halloween costumes they’re selling this year.
- Adult Barbie Box Costume - No one will be surprised that Barbie costumes are incredibly popular this year, but Uzzolino says this Barbie box costume is one of their best sellers. The cool thing about it is that it lets people go as a Barbie of any style or career they want.
- Western Barbie Costume - The pink cowgirl outfit Margot Robbie wears in the “Barbie” movie is another popular choice and there’s even a Western Ken for the perfect couples costume.
- Corpse Bride Costume - The “Corpse Bride” movie came out close to 20 years ago, but the costume is still one of Spirit Halloween’s most popular choices.
- Chucky Costume Deluxe - For grown-ups who want a spookier look, dressing up as the killer doll could be the way to go. Thanks to the recent release of season 3 of “Chucky” on Peacock, this horror villain costume is as popular as ever.
- Shorty Costume - Killer Klowns from Outer Space - Another popular creepy costume is Shorty the Clown from the 80s sci-fi horror comedy.
- Kissy Missy Costume - Poppy Playtime - Uzzolino says two of the best sellers this year are the Poppy Playtime costumes, Kissy Missy and Huggy Wuggy, characters from the video game.
- Gryffindor Dress Costume - Harry Potter costumes seem to never go out of style and this outfit that will have you looking like you’re ready to roam the halls of Hogwarts is one of the most popular of 2023.
- Rave N' Dance Wednesday Addams Dress - Thanks to the popularity of the Netflix series “Wednesday,” a lot of people will be dressing up as the Addams family daughter. This costume is a replica of the dress Wednesday wears to the school dance, but you’ll have to perfect her moves to go with it.
