Halloween is right around the corner and if you're participating in the festivities hopefully you already have your costume. However, it can be a little tricky trying to find the perfect costume so here are some of the most popular Halloween costumes for this year.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the most popular costume this year is the men from the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty." People have been flocking to costume stores for the bearded, camouflage costumes.
Brad Butler at Halloween Express told EW that the Robertson family getup has already sold out at his store. Other popular choices for men also include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spider-Man, Superman, Wolverine and Batman.
"In a political year we'd typically see political figure masks as strong sellers, but this year they're just average," he told Entertainment Weekly in an email. "In talking with store managers and consumers around the country our sense is that consumers are choosing costumes that are fun and tilt toward fantasy rather than making a political statement or trying to look like a celebrity."
According to Butler, women are eager to dress up as Katniss Everdeen from "The Hunger Games." He has also seen a strong interest in fox costumes this year. This quirky idea for a Halloween costume comes from of a video by comedic group Ylvis, called "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?).
In the video (which you check out below) the guy tries to figure out what kind of sound a fox would make.
According to WALB News again "Duck Dynasty" was at the top of many people's list as well as zombies.
"Beards, they buy the beards like crazy trying to be 'Duck Dynasty,'" the owner of Doyle's Costume Shop in Georgia said. "We also got a wide selection of the Zombie stuff. We have the make-up, the tights, we got it."
According to Nj.com, besides the bearded fellows and the Ylvis Fox, sexy "Breaking Bad" costumes have also been flying off the shelves. Women are eager to don a sipped-open hazmat suit, lipstick and removed gas mask inspired by chemistry turned meth-cooker Walter White from the show.
"I understand that Uncle Si is selling out fast, which is frightening and amusing at the same time," Kate Winn, senior vice president of consumer products for A&E Networks said. "They're very aspirational characters."
