Gearing up for Halloween 2010 - Popular Costume Ideas and Trends

It's finally September, which means we're finally about to embrace autumn. With autumn comes our favorite holiday of the year -- Halloween! We know this is about the time when people begin brainstorming about costume ideas, so we thought we'd help you out a bit by discussing some of the hottest trends in the market right now. Whether you're looking to fit in with style by following the trend or looking to be a rebel by staying away from it, a look at our 2010 Halloween Costumes is sure to help you in finding your perfect Halloween costume.

One of the hottest trends in play this year is the 80's. Last year, the 80's started making a comeback, but it wasn't until the passing of Michael Jackson that the 80's really flared up with a revenge. This Halloween, we guarantee you that more than a few people will be going retro with our 80's Costumes. From Michael Jackson to our 80's Party Girl to our Old School Rapper -- we've got the 80's covered.

Another trend to take note of are the new licensed Toddler Costumes this year. Toddlers can be even more fickle than adults, and the beloved characters in their imaginary world change out faster than you can say Halloween! New for 2010, our Dinosaur Train Toddler Costumes are already a huge hit. No surprise there; who wouldn't want to bring Buddy and Tiny alive? Also new for 2010 are various Nick Jr. character costumes, including our Wow Wow Wubbzy Toddler Costume and our Shaun the Sheep Toddler Costume.

The big screen always dictates trends, and 2010 is no different. Movies like Avatar, Shrek 4 and Toy Story 3 have captured audiences worldwide, so it'll be no big surprise if the related costumes become a hit as well. Bring the awesome characters of Jake Sully, Neytiri, Shrek, Fiona, Buzz Lightyear, and Woody out of the movie theater and into real life. For more big screen ideas, also take a look at all of our Movie Costumes.

With so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming. But, like with every Halloween season, don't stress and just have fun! But remember, get your costumes early -- before stock runs out!
