Just like previous Halloween seasons, this is the time of the year when most people begin to get costumes and accessories at online stores. Some people look for low-priced items, and some others look for their favorite character. However many customers are looking for the top Halloween costumes of 2008.
Are you looking for this Halloween season top-rated, best-selling Halloween costumes? Then look no further. The following are the Halloween costumes that most people wants this Halloween season (and probably will be sold-out in no time). Be aware that like last Halloween season (and many of the past years), it have many of well-known characters from recent movies and TV shows, superheroes, famous events, and some others. Here are the best-selling Halloween costumes for this year:
1 - The Joker/Batman Costumes: The most-wanted Halloween costume in the list comes from one of the best movies in theaters these days. The bad guy from the movie "Batman: The Dark Knight" will definitely be the most wanted costume for this Halloween. And there won't be Gotham's top villain in this top-10 list, without his arch-enemy? Batman is another best-selling costume for this year, with several different costumes designs and quality to choose from. If interested in getting any of these Halloween costumes online, I advise you to check for them in as many online stores as possible. You will notice how much their price may change from one website to the other.
2 - Iron Man Costume: Yet another neat comic book character which recently got his own movie, the Iron Man costume comes in second place. It is among the best selling costumes this Halloween season, with many online stores already running out and taking pre-orders for their next shipment. If you want to buy an Iron Man costume for next October, you must buy it while you still can. If you plan to order this Halloween costume online, notice that there are a few different versions of it (from "cheapo-average quality" to "mega expensive high quality"). If you see an Iron Man costume at a better price in another online store, check that it is just the same one (and not a lower quality version) before you buy it.
3 - Indiana Jones: Another nice movie, another great Halloween costume. You can find this costume with all accessories, as well as buying costume accessories like bag, whip and hat and use regular clothes to finish the costume. As previously stated, before you order the lowest priced version of this costume you can get, check if all necessary accessories are included (like whip, hat, etc.). Also check for the costume quality.
4 - Harry Potter: Another big screen star-inspired Halloween costume made favorite by many, especially young boys. The famous wizard from Hogwarts School of Wizardry will be found in almost every elemental school Halloween party. If you want this Halloween costume, be aware that some accessories may not be included and may need to be bought separately (like Harry Potter's glasses, magic wand, etc.).
5 - Barrack Obama/George Bush: With national elections day less than a week after Halloween, famous political characters will be another hot Halloween costume idea chosen by many people. Several "Hillary Clintons" may be found in Halloween activities as well.
6 - Sports/Olympics Related Halloween Costumes: Every summer Olympics year a lot people select sports Halloween costumes, and this year will be no exception. It is also the costume of choice for people looking for a cheap (or free) Halloween costume. You only have to ask a friend for some sports wear and accessories and wear them as a costume.
7 - Pirate-theme costumes: Like bell-bottom pants and turtle-necks, this is a classic Halloween costume that came back to become one of the hottest costumes this year. Is all this hype caused by of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies?... probably... But pirate-theme costumes are great sellers this Halloween season, and it is maybe the best seller in "couples/groups costumes" category.
8 - Fantastic Four: Yet another superhero/movie inspired Halloween set of costumes. These costumes are pretty simple and easy to wear (although "the Thing" Halloween costume might not be so comfortable). This costume set is a great selection for couples and groups.
9 - BK King: The BK King... what a funny Halloween costume. This Halloween costume has been in the top for some years now. Maybe it is not as "desired" as it was some years ago, but it still on the top (mostly because a lot of people got it for previous Halloween seasons, and now people are either "recycling" it or letting someone else use it).
10 - Sexy Witch/Bunny/Nurse/Maid/Whatever: Are you a pretty woman? Then this is the Halloween outfit for you to use. Just use anything sexy and you'll be ok. I can guarantee everybody will like (well, at least guys will like it... hehe...).
These were the 10 best Halloween costumes for this Halloween season. If you want to buy anyone of these costumes, I recommend you get it soon because all costumes in this list will probably be gone early this year. You should also keep in mind that these Halloween costumes will be extremely popular, so there could be many people wearing them. If you plan to be "original" and want to be the only one in your Halloween party using your selected costume, you probably should look for a different Halloween costume. But if you want to use one of the hottest costumes, then you're good to go. Just do your best to look very good, that way if there are more people wearing a similar costume, hopefully you will be the one looking cooler. Cheers!
