It is never too early to start thinking about what your kids or you yourself will be wearing for Halloween. That is the one time of year where you can be anything or anyone you want, and no one will think you are too weird. Checking out the best Halloween costumes for 2011 brings some old and some new favorites together for all ages to enjoy.
The one theme that has been so popular recently is vampires. Everywhere you look, you see a movie, a TV show, or a new book about vampires out. It is no wonder that the majority of popular costumes are centered around vampires then. The best thing is how they have evolved. Not only do you have your traditional vampire but you also have the Gothic and elite styles to choose from for all ages.
Kids Halloween costumes always come in a selection from their favorite cartoon characters to firefighters to superheroes. Despite the vampires taking over, witches will also have a part in kid’s outfits this year. A Harry Potter costume will be at the top of the list for boys and girls everywhere this year, and not just the boy himself, but the other characters in the book and film as well.
Superheroes are the big thing, besides vampires, right now. Little boys will have fun choosing between their favorites such as Iron Man, Batman, and a Transformers character. But video games are also inspirations as the Mario and Luigi outfits make their way into the lineup.
Little girls will forever want to be a princess or fairy when they can, so those choices will never fall from fashion. However, this year, the superheroes are not just for the boys. Little girls will find their own selection of movie inspired superhero outfits suited just for them. They will also see that they can be just as scary as boys with a girl mummy or monster bride outfit.
Adult Halloween costumes are just as popular, because big girls and boys like to dress up too. This year men will find that the Scream ensemble is back to create a little party terror. But they will also find pirate and superhero outfits filling the racks. Captain America is making his comeback, and many men will enjoy being their favorite superhero for a night.
When it comes to women’s Halloween costumes, they range from the modest to the uber sexy today. Two popular outfits already eyed up by many are the Alice in Wonderland, modest and sexy version, and the Queen of Hearts ensemble. With the return of Wonder Woman to the limelight, many women will gravitate to a powerful, yet sexy look during the witching season. For those that like to show it off, the sexy nurse, pirate, and French maid will have a new addition added to their lineup: the sexy sailor.
Time flies and before you know it, summer is over, and it is time to think about who you want to pretend to be this autumn. Now is the time to start planning and thinking about whether you are vampire or superhero material. Whatever you decide, Halloween costumes for 2011 are going to be exciting and fun for adults and kids alike.
