Last Halloween’s Top Costumes – Womens

Halloween 2009 didn’t have a clear cut winner for the Womens costume category, but here are some of the more popular ones.

In 2008, Leg Avenue introduced the Love Bite Vampire Costume (left) – and it would have been the top seller for both 2008 & 2009…if they hadn’t run out of them early both years! In 2008, I only was able to get about 4 before they were totally gone. Last year I pre-ordered around 20 of them and sold them all weeks before Halloween and was unable to get any more.  They are in stock with Leg Avenue right now and I’ll be ordering several again this year – but if you want this costume, PLEASE order early! I hate to disappoint you when it sells out. I have the bat topped arm warmers in stock right now too!

A similar costume, Leg Avenue’s Burlesque Dancer (right) became a substitute for the Love Bite when it sold out…at least until it also sold out about 2 weeks before Halloween! Personally, I like the Burlesque Dancer better – I love the back of the skirt on it! I think it would look great over a long black skirt (even black tights or pants!) for anyone not wanting a very short costume! Add some fangs and the bat topped arm warmers and it could easily be a vampire costume!

Of our premium costumes, 2 InCharacter styles ruled last year’s Halloween: The Fortune Teller Gypsy (far left) and the Wicked Queen (left). With this year’s new 2B Character more economical costumes, they’ve introduced a Gypsy Adult Costume (right) too that I think will be popular.

One of the great things about a lot of these costumes is that they have multiple pieces so can be mixed and matched to create all new, uniquely yours costumes and to extend them past one Halloween.

I do expect vampire costumes of all types to be a popular choice what with the Twilight saga, Vampire Diaries and The Gates on TV. We’ll have to wait and see what ultimately wins the crown as top costume for Halloween 2010!
