September begins and school kids and adults alike skip to planning for the next fun holiday – Halloween. A quick online glance at the new trends for Halloween costumes indicates that you may well see a good number of last year’s Angry Birds, back again for a repeat (and with a better costume). Also on the up and coming list, Avengers costumes, Merida (Disney’s Brave), and new additions to the Monster’s High costume selection.
2012 Halloween Costume Trends
Here are our best guesses for what to expect in 2012 Halloween Costume Trends
1. Dress up as Obama/Romney political posers. Obama Mask
This happens every four years where parents take it upon themselves to dress their kids as a political character in order to “campaign” door to door as they trick or treat. It can be cute. Or just weird. And it can definitely be annoying. Even if you don’t see many of these political costumes out and about, you’ll notice them for sure, and much like the presidential election, it could be scary.
2. The Avengers Halloween Costumes.
As mentioned above, this one is just too easy. Kids will be dressing up as the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, and so on and so forth. Even the women can get in the action with the Avengers Black Widow Costume. It’s easy. And looks pretty good.
3. Angry Birds Costume.
Last year was for the birds, with a lot of home made Angry Bird costumes, but few in the stores. This means there may be some latent, repressed birders out there willing to don the costume. Yellow and red mostly (click here for the Angry Birds Red Costume), and available for boys and girls.
4. Disney Princess | Disney Brave Merida Costume.
This one never gets old, and this year we have Disney’s Merida the Brave Costume out and about for sale. Very cute and in a number of sizes. It would be cute for the big sister, especially if you can convince a few younger siblings to dress up as the bratty bears/brothers.
5. Batman Themed Halloween Costume.
Homemade Halloween Costumes
6. Dress up as London Olympics Medal Winners.
Options abound as to what you might want to wear – speedos, gymnastics outfits, and tracksuits, are just some of the options. Throw a handmade gold medal around your neck and your an Olympian.
7. Adult Fifty Shades of Grey Costume.
Dress up as a clueless college student and/or a ruggedly handsome millionaire. Grab some handcuffs, and you’re fully costumed as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. This one is adult-only.
8. Hunger Games for Halloween.
Put on a frayed black outfit (remember, you’re poor), brown leather jacket and grab a bow and arrow for a prop and you’re all set to be Katniss Everdeen (don’t forget to braid your hair!)
9. Pregnant Snookie Costume
Jersey up your hair, spray on some fake tan, grab a pillow and dress up as a pregnant Snookie.
10. Dress up as Twilight characters Bella/Edward OR Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson
Dress up as a, angsty and remorseful Kristen Stewart (all black outfit and sad face)? Or a pregnant, glowing, Bella. Even better, you can go as Vampiric Edward or rebound Pattinson. There must be a Pattinson mask out there somewhere. Of course, either way, you are only slightly less of a Twihard than the YouTube fan who sobbed out her devastation at Kristen’s cheating ways.
Just a typical day in Beverly Hills. “That’s where I want to be!” Yes, Weezer had many reasons to want to be in Beverly Hills. Considering a Call of Duty Battle can happen at the drop of a hat, who wouldn’t want to be there?
Has everyone heard about bayifier.com yet? If you haven’t, you need to pause, open a new tab and go there. Upload a classy, wholesome photo of yourself or someone you know and then proceed to give it the Michael Bay treatment by adding bombs, guns, explosions, fighter jets, fast cars and a Shia head (I’m not sure how you pronounce Shia, but in my head it’s always to the tune of the Chia pets jingle – “Sh-sh-sh-shia!!!”).
I’ve started a petition to upgrade the bayifier to work on video clips but since it’s a fansite, I’m guessing they don’t have a huge budget or team of developers at the ready. I also don’t really know what format to put the petition on, so it’s currently on 3-hole notebook paper in a dilapidated Lisa Frank trapper keeper I can’t bear to part with. Until my dreams come true and I can waste away hours bayifying videos and movies, I’m content to re-imagine the results in writing. Imagine the joy I felt when I watched “The Breakfast Club” and began to re-imagine it in the style of the inimitable Michael Bay. If you can’t imagine it, just picture an absurd level of giddiness and several friends rolling their eyes at me.
Since my friends think I’m nuts (nothing new there) I’m giving this gift to you, users of the Internet, to cherish and enjoy. Please allow me to present the Michael Bay reboot of “The Breakfast Club.”
