Spirit Halloween celebrates 30 years of popular costumes

Oct '13
For 30 years, Spirit Halloween, the largest seasonal Halloween retailer in North America, has had its finger on the pulse of pop culture, as the year’s most unforgettable moments often translate to the most memorable Halloween costumes. In recent years, Charlie Sheen won our attention, Lady Gaga’s fashion choices had us buzzing, and the cast of The Jersey Shore fist-pumped onto the scene.

In 2013, Halloween enthusiasts everywhere will be twerkin’ what their momma gave them. Spirit Halloween has this year’s hottest pop culture costumes for women and men, including:

Twerkin’ Teddy – An embroidered, smiling teddy bear, plush leotard for the ladies.

Twerk Suit – A black and white striped suit jacket and pants for the guys.

Party Finger – The infamous foam finger with red nails to complete the look.

“Spirit Halloween provides consumers with the most relevant and timely costumes based on what’s happening in the world of pop culture,” said Steven Silverstein, President and CEO, Spirit Halloween. “With 30 years in the Halloween business, we know what consumers want and always deliver the best selection of costumes, accessories and home décor to make this year’s celebrations memorable for all.”

To celebrate its 30th Anniversary, Spirit Halloween tapped into the archives to identify the box office hits, small screen stars and celebrities that kept the nation talking. The first-ever “Pop-Costume Index,” illustrates the intersection between pop culture and popular costumes during the past three decades. This dynamic infographic includes fun facts, such as:

Perennial Favorites – Princess Leia's famous gold bikini debuted in 1983 and continues to be a popular costume 30 years later. Even today, nothing says “Bad Guy” like Darth Vader, another sought-after look.

Partners in Crime – Batman and his sensational counterparts – Robin, Catwoman and The Joker – were top costumes in 1989, 1992, 1997 and 2008.

Take a Bite out of the Costume Competition – Twilight’s overwhelming popularity in 2009 resurrected a Halloween costume classic – vampires – in the same way Pirates of the Caribbean helped pirate-themed costumes become a Halloween favorite in 2003.

Not Just for Kids – Children’s hit television programs such as the Care Bears (1986), Barney (1993) and SpongeBob SquarePants (2004) not only won the hearts of kids across the country, but also led the way in costume trends for adults.
