- A new poll finds that 25% of people say they are looking for a unique one-of a kind Halloween costume this year
- 40% of people planning to dress up say they’ll choose a costume based on pop culture, with only 5% picking a political or historical costume
- 10% of people plan to put their pet in a Halloween costume, with that number going up to 15% for Millennials
When it comes to Halloween costumes, more and more people want to stand out from the crowd, so if you’re thinking of going as Wonder Woman or Batman, you may want to rethink that decision.
A new poll finds that this year’s most popular costume is one that nobody else has. That’s right, 25% of people say they are looking for a unique, one-of a kind Halloween costume, followed by a costume that’s funny (19%), scary or gory (17%), cute (15%) or sexy (14%).
Folks should also expect to see a lot of their favorite TV and movie characters, since more people who plan to dress up will likely choose costumes based on pop culture (40%), than classic costumes like witches or werewolves (29%), animals (14%), and professions (8%), with the least popular costume being a political or historical one (5%). We should also expect to see a lot of couples costumes, with 57% of people saying they plan to coordinate their costume with someone, or several people.
And it turns out costumes aren’t just for humans. It seems 10% of people plan to put their pet in a Halloween costume, with that number going up to 15% or Millennials. That's just cruel...
