Halloween is Coming...

Halloween is creeping up on us yet again....If you're like me, you too are asking WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?

Our favorite Holiday always seems to surprise everyone at the last minute, even though it comes at the same time every year.  We love it because it's the only time when all of us--no matter what age or gender--can let our imaginations run wild and be kids again. 

So let's take a look at 2011's most popular adult costumes and start planning for a great night (or week) of Halloween madness...


For the Lovely Ladies...

  • Sassy Jack Sparrow from DisguiseSassyJackSparrow.jpg
This female version of Jack Sparrow has been a hit with women since the release of the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Movie.  Remember though; don't mess with a beard or mustache--that's a whole different circus costume.




  • Devine Miss Red from Leg AvenueDevineMissRed.jpg
A gorgeous twist on the classic Little Red Riding Hood!  This can be worn as a couples costume if your boy goes as a big bad werewolf or darken red up by adding a wolf tail and ears to the ensemble making her the big bad.




  • Boneyard Bride by In Characterboneyardbride.jpg
Dia de los Muertos or "the day of the dead" sugar skull designs have been en vogue for the past few years.  This costume compliments gorgeous face paint capturing the feel of the holiday.






  • Tea Cup Mad Hatter from Leg AvenueTeaCupHatter.jpg
Tim Burton and Disney's re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland may have been last year, but the classic tale is always inspiring new looks.  The Tea Cup Mad Hatter is whimsically playful and can be worn as is or with a spooky fashion makeup twist.  Let yourself go slightly mad.





  • Foxy Roxy Costume from Leg Avenueleg+avenue.jpg
Feeling creative? What could be cuter than a wildlife creature and Leg Avenue's Critter costumes new for 2011! Be foxy with the Foxy Roxy, stinkin' cute with Stinkin' Cute Skunk or risky with the Risky Racoon! Also new for 2011 is the Blue Beauty, a sophisticated and simple Peacock costume from Leg Avenue with real Peacock Feather attachment to turn heads. Adorable and simple, these costumes are sure to have all the dogs chasing after you ;)
 


  • Feline Femme Fatal from  Leg Avenuefelinefemmefatal.jpg
This costume is new take on the classic DC sometimes villainess/sometimes heroine Catwoman.  It looks like it's based off the classic Michelle Pfeiffer /Selina Kyle design. It may not be the current comic book version, but with the The Dark Knight Rises coming out next year featuring Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle, it is purr-fect for trendsetters and Batman fans alike.



  • Lightening Rock Star by Leg AvenueLA_83828_A1650.jpg
Inspired by Lady Gaga, it may not be a meat dress or an egg, but it's something a bit more do-able.  Show your extreme fashion sense with this costume and various style diva accessories to create your own look.



 
For the Gents
...

 
  • Cheech & Chong Kits by Incognitocheechkit.jpgchongkit.jpg
Most of us grew up on Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke, now you too can easily slip into these instant Cheech or Chong kits.  Grab a friend and find that old van, man.





  • Graveyard Groom from In Charactergraveyardgroom.jpg
The man's versions of the Dia de los Muertos or "Day of the Dead" sugar skull is almost as popular as the woman's version.  Easy to pair off in a couples costume and look dashing at the same time as you can look scary.




  • Robin Hood from 2B In Characterrobinhood.jpg
Don't fret, there are no tights here.  This design was based off the popular BBC Robin Hood series and the newest movie incarnation; including the actual hood not that silly peter pan style hat.  Could also work if you're a Green Arrow fan too and have the urge to play DC super hero/playboy Oliver Queen.



  • SWAT Commander from Leg Avenueswat.jpg
Leg Avenue isn't just for the girls anymore.  They have a great selection of men's costumes and this SWAT tactical vest will have you pretending your Jack Bauer in no time flat.





  • Mario or Luigi Kits from Rubiesluigikit.jpgmariokit.jpg
Got pair of old coveralls?  Slap on the Nintendoâ„¢ Mario or Luigi kit that includes a hat and super mustache to play everyone's favorite plumbers.  Simple and you'll show your gamer roots with this hit.



  • The Simpsons Deluxe Duffman with Muscles from Disguiseduffman.jpg
Everyone knows Duffman, "oh, yeah!"  The Simpson's favorite beer mascot can now be you!  Be the hit of the party and pack your cans of beer in your belt. Pop culture has never come in a finer package.



 
Remember the biggest trends sell out the fastest so shop early and snag them before they're gone!
And with that, I only have one question for you...
