Stranger Things Costumes Will Be Huge This Halloween
There's a good chance that a Dustin Henderson wig may show up at your door this Halloween, or God forbid that awful slimy monster that crushed the mall last season. Stranger Things costumes are expected to be big, and a few sequined movie characters too.
Pinterest says it has tens of millions of Halloween-related boards and said searches are up for movie and TV characters.
Pinterest revealed its most popular Halloween-related searches between July of 2018 and July of 2019 and said searches for Elton John costumes were up 442%. That sequined Dodgers pantsuit that we saw in Rocketman might suddenly be everywhere. Every day in the 70s and 80s was costume day for Elton John, and we're gettin' into it for costume parties in October. And if we don't want to go all out, we can wear all black and just bling it up with some fancy glasses.
Searches for Stranger Things-related costume ideas are up more than 650 percent, according to Pinterest. The top trending characters from the show are Steve Harrington and Demogorgon (+380%). Party City is one of the sites selling Steve's Scoops Ahoy costume, along with Robin's Scoops Ahoy outfit, and Will Byers' wig.
Pinterest also found other costumes are hot this year, including those based on The Powerpuff Girls, Toy Story, The Lion King, Aladdin, and other big movies. And based on the success of Bohemian Rhapsody, Freddie Mercury costumes will be hot, and maybe Brian May wigs and then all we have to do is carry a guitar. The movie and TV costumes will balance out all of the baby shark, ketchup and mustard, and Flo Progressive costumes for sure. Now is the time to order, before they all sell out.
Enjoy the next two weeks of peace at the office, before it gets hosed down with orange and black streamers, cobwebs and bowls of the candy-corn-peanut mix on every other desk. You know it's coming.
