With Halloween just over a month away, the season is already bringing mayhem and mischief to Party City as the store stocks its shelves with edgy new costumes in response to shifting consumer tastes.

“This year, Avante Garde hits mainstream, and as a result, 2010 costumes are expected to be completely over the top,” says Melissa Sprich, top costume merchandiser for Party City. “The fashion world right now is about fusing high-fashion looks with pieces that are completely individualized, and Party City’s collection of Halloween costumes allows customers to do just that.”

Melissa adds, “More than ever, the latest runway shows and fashion-forward individuals influence costume trends, and as always, the year’s hit blockbusters and outlandish pop figures strongly influence costume trends as people love taking on a completely different persona for Halloween.”

Specifically, Party City has witnessed a spike in demand for costumes reflecting Lady Gaga’s outrageous and provocative style, and her unique fashion statements are sure to be seen at many 2010 Halloween events.

According to Party City, the top 2010 Halloween costume trends include:

Lady Gaga Costumes
: The hugely popular recording artist and activist is also a fashion trend-setter. Lady Gaga’s VMA performance costume and her black and silver sequin dress are just two of the Lady Gaga costumes creating a buzz on social sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Modern-day Vampire Costumes: Inspired by the Twilight saga and True Blood series, today’s vampire differs from its menacing Victorian ancestor. Still wan and fanged, the modern vampire has a mysterious, sensual, and sometimes sensitive appeal. With this in mind, Party City debuts its Moonlight Bite vampire costume, which sparkles with electric lights in its ruffled black skirt.

1980s comeback costumes: Eighties style is back with a vengeance, so expect this year’s Halloween ensembles to feature plenty of the big hair, leggings, bright neon colors, lace gloves, and acid-wash denim iconic of the
Michael Jackson
and Material Girl era.

Jersey Shore cast member costumes
: Expect to see costumes that amplify the distinctive looks and outlandish personalities of MTV’s popular reality show. Party City features all the accessories needed to pull off a signature Jersey Shore look, including Snooki’s leopard mini-dress dress, bumpit wig, and orange-tinted bronzer, Pauly D’s infamous perfectly gelled wig, and a “Situation” muscle-tee for Michael.

and Greek Goddess Costumes : Long, flowing, feminine Greek robes and gladiator-inspired sandals so popular in 2010 translate into beautifully fashionable Halloween costumes. Party City carries a variety of classic Egyptian, Roman, and Greek costumes that seem to float and create an air of celestial vision.

Movie-inspired costumes
: Hollywood is always a rich source of inspiration for Halloween costumes. Iron Man 2, Toy Story 3, Avatar, and Alice and Wonderland costumes are sure to populate this year’s Halloween parties, but Star Wars Darth Vader remains the perennial favorite.

If you want to make your own costumes, you can find templates online or at your local craft store that will definitely make the process easier. Looking to purchase your costumes? Make sure wherever you choose to buy from has both costumes in stock before purchasing. Don’t forget you can always go through your own clothes, any dress up clothes the kids may have and previous years’ costumes and put two of them together as well.

Halloween Costumes For Toddlers

Of all of the holidays that you celebrate, Halloween is probably one of the most exciting times for your toddler. Because of the dressing up and getting to go out on the town to collect candy and see all of the great Halloween decorations, this can be quite the time to cherish as a parent when you see the joy in your toddler’s eyes. Choosing the right costume with your little one can be a chore unless you have a good idea of what may work best for you when you are out and about asking neighbors if they would prefer a trick or give treats!

To start with, you want to make sure that you choose a Halloween costume for your toddler that they will enjoy but will also be easy for them to walk around in. Keep in mind that you do not want to have any embellishments on the costume that they could trip over while walking. Depending on the neighborhood that you live in or the route that you choose for trick or treating, you may also have to take them in and out of your vehicle. A costume with wings may not work so well as you try to put your toddler into their car seat or try to strap him or her into their booster seat.

In order to have some fun with the costume, you can always involve your toddler in the selection process. Take a moment to ask your toddler if there is any sort of animal or Halloween themed creature that they would like to dress up as. Looking through pictures in books can give you plenty of great ideas, or if you have a costume catalog, you can pick one out with them and then order it to be sent to you in time for stepping out on Halloween.

If you happen to be a crafty parent, then you can always think of creating a fun and festive Halloween costume for your toddler out of items that you already have in your craft supplies or around the house. Be patient and work with your toddler to see if they would like to help you during the creation process as well. This can be a wonderful time to bond with your little one and make a one of a kind costume that is sure to be the envy of all of the other toddlers and parents who live on your block!
