Increased interest in Zombie Apocalypse Halloween costumes
Oct '12
Looking for the scariest Halloween costume for the upcoming Halloween party? According to Tanya Nahal, the owner of Hallowville Manor in Langley, BC, this year shows an increased interest in the end-of-the-world themed costumes, likely due to the ending of the Mayan calendar on December 21st 2012.

"Zombies in particular seem to be a wanted item this year," says Ms. Nahal who has recently announced the arrival of some of the most exciting range of costumes and gift items, designed specifically for Halloween season. "Plenty of end-of-the-world themed parties are being organized this year with dead people turning into zombies and coming back to life because 2012 is the year when the Mayan calendar ends."

But this doesn't come as surprise to this Langley entrepreneur - "... the surge of zombie-apocalypse chatter on the web this year, especially when combined with the much anticipated 2012 [Mayan] calendar end, practically secured the theme for this season, months ahead of October," says Nahal.
Hallowville Manor has been offering their unique collection of Halloween items since the inception of the business in the year 2001. The store presently offers a stock of a whopping 1,700 unique costumes that are available for rent and purchase.
In addition to their enviable collection of Halloween costumes, the locally-made Pumpkin Hats are always a sought-after item at Hallowville Manor. Other just arrived Halloween items in the store include different types of contact lenses, special effect make up, animated props, masks, puppets, skeletons and ghouls, zombies and much more. The arrival of the special Halloween items this year is in anticipation of a special Halloween celebration.
The credit behind the illustrious journey of Hallowville Manor can certainly be attributed to its charismatic owner and founder Tanya Nahal. She had an irresistible fascination for the Halloween season since the days of her childhood. Talking about her decision to start this business, she says, "I began to make costumes for family and friends that became more complex as my experience and confidence grew. It became normal for me to host parties with graves, coffins and a many other forms of seasonal novelties every Halloween with a large number of costumes being my own creations. It was around this time that I started to seriously dream about operating and owning my own costume business."
