Halloween Costume Trends 2013

Posted: Updated:

The biggest weekend for Halloween costume sales is over, and stores like Halloween Express have cleared more than half their inventory.

And this year, the small screen made a big splash with costumes.

Zombies are running rampant this year, and zombie costume supplies are very low. Halloween Express is out of white face paint, and on Sunday, had only one tube of fake skin left.

"The Walking Dead caused that huge zombie thing, and we debated it," said Joe Szczechowski, an Erie resident. "But everybody we knew did it."

Szczechowski decided on a ventriloquist's dummy costume. "It smiles at the kids while it scares them," he said.

One costume that has been popular for the past few years is the morphsuit - the neon, spandex suit that covers its wearer from head to toe.

The morphsuit got its fame after an episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" featured the costume.

"The seeing is a little blurry, but it's something you'll get used to pretty quick," said Dalton Stadler, another Erie resident.

Minion costumes were popular with the kids, and all were already sold out on Sunday.

And fake beards were a hot ticket item this year. Add some cameo to that beard, and you've got an easy costume as a "Duck Dynasty" character.
