Central Coast Living: Halloween costume trends

Posted at 8:02 AM, Oct 26, 2018

Halloween is less than a week away and if you don’t have your costume figured out yet, you don’t want to be stuck scrambling at the last minute.

Central Coast Living is about getting into the spirit, and with Halloween just around the corner, even adults are dressing up.

Costume Connection in Atascadero says superheroes like Black Panther and Wonder Woman are big hits costume-wise this year along with popular video game characters like those in Fortnight.

For the adults, think scary.

Colleen Canaan, owner of Costume Connection, says, “Scary seems to be the running theme – witches have made a big comeback. Western has done well this year. There’s just no telling. There’s been no movie except some of the scary movies have come back out, so that seems to be what’s pointing people in that direction.”

If there’s a themed event to attend, that’s the driving force behind sales for adult-sized costumes, according to Canaan.

She says baby boomers turned the child holiday into a weekend of costume parties for the older crowd.
