Australia’s top costume shop, CostumeBox.com.au, has released their coveted list of top trending Halloween costumes for 2013, as the Celtic holiday’s popularity grows in Australia.
Zombies are trending again for Halloween this season due to the popularity of box office hit movies like World War Z and Warm Bodies.
(PRWEB) October 02, 2013
With October 31st closing in quickly, CostumeBox.com.au has announced their annual Top 10 Halloween Costumes for Women, Men, and Kids. The online costume retailer is Australia’s number one provider of Halloween costumes and party supplies. With over 20,000 fancy dress costume items ready to ship world-wide, picking the top 10 lists proves to be a big challenge for staff and buyers each Halloween.
“Zombies are trending again for Halloween this season due to the popularity of box office hit movies like World War Z and Warm Bodies,” said Fiona Featherstone, Senior Buyer at CostumeBox.com.au. “And with The Walking Dead and other TV series leading the airwaves, costume manufacturers are using the opportunity to ‘zombify’ previously popular character costumes like cheerleaders, sheriffs and even football players.”
More traditional costume themes include classics like vampires, witches, and skeletons, but with the Great Gatsby out this year, 1920s costumes have been huge too, according to Featherstone. As always, we can expect to see the usual vampires, skeletons, and witches walking the streets this Halloween. “My favourite costume for Halloween 2013 and the one I personally will be wearing is the ‘Salem Witch.’ She comes complete with a noose around her neck – I just love it.”
Featherstone’s tip for everyone is to add some character make-up to your cart when shopping for your costume, “this simple addition to your look will make your costume go from O.K. to amazing!” If you are totally stumped for ideas, check out the list of Halloween Costume Ideas at Costume Box.
Halloween continues to grow in popularity, with Australians embracing the opportunity to get involved with their community. Whether you are handing out treats, going door to door to trick or treat, or throwing a party, Halloween is a holiday that touches every demographic and encourages neighbours of all ages to interact in a positive way.
Many younger Australians are embracing the historically European Halloween tradition, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, which celebrates the Celtic festival of the dead. A recent study by McCrindle Research on Australian trends revealed trick or treating was the post popular activity, “with 64% of those celebrating Halloween planning to take part in this activity, rising to 79% among families with primary school aged children.”
