30 Years Of The Most Popular Halloween Costumes

October 17, 2013


To celebrate 30 years in the costume business (and score some free advertising) this is an infographic created by Spirit Halloween showing the most popular pop-culture costume they've sold each year for the past three decades. Most of them aren't that surprising. The Snooki and Miley Cyrus shit I could do without, but, as far-reaching as my influence is, I don't dictate popular culture. Shocking, I know. But this is my 13,000th Geekologie article, so I at least have that going for me. It's not much, really, but-- "It's actually nothing." I don't even know why I mentioned it. *blows out candles, crawls back into pillow fort*

Thanks to PYY, who agrees the best Halloween costume is definitely not the one that ten other people at the party are wearing.

    Congrats GW on your 13Kth post.

    Happy 13,000 GW! I heard you don't start dictating pop culture until 15,000 posts so just keep at it... We'll be here reading.

    Woo! Happy 13k anniversary! We are all incredibly jealous of your pillow fort. I'd make one, but I'm at work, and the last time we tried piling up all the chairs around our cubicles and draping blankets over them, they got kinda upset.

    13000! Bravo!!

  • How exactly was "President Obama" popular in 2006 when he wasn't elected until 2008? o_o

    Generally, you have to be popular before you are elected, to be elected.

    Illuminati magic.

  • 1990 was a good year. Proud to have been a part of that one!

    Also, '83. That must have been a great year too.

    Happy 13,000 post day GDub!! Only thing more perfect would to have done it on a Friday in October. But dems the breaks.

  • If "Twerkin' Teddy" really is this year's most popular costume, I weep for our children's future.
