This year the fad for Halloween may not be wholly focused on dark color schemes. Neon-colored tutus, tights and gloves – all things bright – are taking over the Party City apparel.
Catee Rue, a manager at a Party City in Carmel, said the biggest deal this year is Morphsuits. The company, based out of the UK, has a facebook page boasting around 1 million likes.
But social media appreciation isn’t all the company is receiving. Their recent deal with Party City helped to push revenue past £10 million in 2011. The company was started in 2009 and since then has “morphed” into the latest trend. The skin-tight material is comfortable, porous enough to breathe and drink through, and comes in many fun colors and designs.
As usual, well-known video game and movie characters will also walk the streets. Already Party City has had requests for costumes of characters from Angry Birds and Hunger Games.
What are some of the other top costumes this season? Party City helps explain what you might expect to see at your front door this Halloween:
Baby – Animals, Superheroes, Disney characters/princesses, Winnie the Pooh, and Transformers.
