Don’t ask me why a banking center is letting people know where to buy the top 10 popular Halloween costumes for this year, but they spent time on this and so I should share it, right? The predictions are stating that people will be spending more on costumes this year. My family spends a decent amount each year anyway because we love Halloween. My kids start talking about their costumes for the following year on November 1st while sorting through their candy from the night before.
GOBankingRates investigated which popular online retailers are offering the best deals on this year’s hottest costumes, from Frozen’s Elsa to Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow.
Halloween 2014 will be even more widely celebrated in the U.S. than usual, with the National Retail Federation predicting costume sales this year will hit $2.8 billion, a 55 percent increase in spending since 2006. My guess is this is due to Halloween being on a Friday night this year. That means more families out and about because there is no school the next day. Plus the young adults of our generation will be having more parties because it’s a weekend event this year.

So what will you or your kids be wearing? My oldest wants to be Steve from Minecraft which is pretty easy for me. Then Finn wants to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. I’m hoping to get our little girl into a mermaid costume but not necessarily Ariel. I might venture to Etsy for something. We shall see.
