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.

    Lady Gaga is a FREAK! What is all the fuss about. I would NEVER let my kids watch her! She is LOW RENT! Dont buy her music or even watch her and then she will dry up and blow away! She is just plain YUCK!

    Did you all notice how well written this post is? I mean, it is clear that the writer wants to inform us rather then persuade, which is a big plus. I can definitely notice that behind each line there lies some tough research. I would also suggest that with each posting, you also address one question to your readers, in order to get more opinions, and to create room for some nice discussions on here!

  19. Sarah Says:

    Woa. Thankyou for sharing. I certainly did not think about this particular issue in this way before and it opened some serious discussion for me on this topic.

  20. Darron Maslen Says:

    Once and for all a very good writing related to the topic, maintain the good work and therefore I hope to read a lot more from you in the longer term.

  21. Lilly Pulitzer Says:

    Can I make a suggestion? I think youve got something good here. But what if you added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or maybe you could give us something to look at, something that would connect what youre saying to something tangible? Just a suggestion.

    Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote Handbag is awesome.So many wallets – and also not really these little, worthless pockets, either. Almost all of the storage compartments are a wonderful dimension and seriously aid keep everything organized. The handles are a wonderful length and fit nicely more than the actual shoulder; the handle shoulder straps also remain put on my own shoulder, which is essential when you’re carrying a baby. The tote appears good, as well. Not as well fancy, but not as well casual. (I have it in black) The material is soft (can’t consider of a far better word) so it’s simple to squeeze in to tight spaces – but yet it’s sturdy. I have a Fleurville Lexi tote and I adore it, too, but that handbag is type of rigid. I feel that Skip*Hop can turn into my daily handbag. It’s a bit substantial – so if you’re not really in to large hand bags this may be superior as an over-night diaper handbag.
