and sanitizer, voting ballots, and Tiger King - oh my! It’s almost that time of year when everyone’s quirky, spooky, and weird sides come out to play, and despite this year passing by at the speed of lighting, 2020 did consist of things other than Covid-19 - who would have thought? The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention have advised against traditional Halloween activities, such as trick-or-treating and costume parties to prevent the spread of Covid-19. However, this doesn't mean you can’t get your hands on a fun costume or DIY one. Whether you’re dressing up for a Zoom party with your co-workers or having a small social gathering this year, let’s take a peek at 2020’s most Instagram-worthy and popular Halloween costumes.
It goes without saying that 2020 has had its fair share of newsworthy events, and if there’s one thing we know about Halloween, it’s that people LOVE coordinating their costumes efforts with these events. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that costume sales at Halloween site, Yandy.com are up 35% from last year. So what exactly is on this year's list when it comes to the most popular Halloween costumes?
Halloween is around the corner, and so is the presidential election This year, Yandy.com features a $38 mail-in ballot costume. It features a tube dress, complete with postal service details, and reads “It must feel good to know you’re the key to the election, babe. Regardless of who wins the vote, you're always a priority in this exclusive Mail-In Ballot costume.” This is one of the site’s best-selling political costumes.
World’s Most Famous Fly
Halloween 2020 wouldn’t be buzzing without people dressing up as the fly on Mike Pence’s head. HalloweenCostume.com quickly sold out of its $90 adult fly costume after the vice presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence. A $40 “holographic fly eyes plush headband” — which boasts a design that will “bring the true beauty of flies into sharper focus” — also sold out post-debate but is now back in stock. Check out the debate fly wig available from wishes.com.
Taking a bit of a shift from the political costumes, Halloween websites have also taken a costume crack at the world’s staple for the entirety of 2020 - hand sanitizer. Coming in hot at $73, this popular Halloween costume will have everyone who sports it feeling completely germ-free.
If you’re looking for a great DIY solo or couples costume, look no further, all you cool cats and kittens. You’ll be the life of the party if you show up dressed as Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic. You could either bust out your favourite animal prints from your closet or hit up Amazon for Carole’s flowery blouse and Tiger King’s sequin button-up shirt.
Not going to elaborate on what the acronym stands for, but if you know, you know. This is the perfect duo costume for you and your bestie. With a simple pink and yellow bodysuit to mirror Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, you’ll be getting your WAP on in no time.
Mark & Jessica
Flashback to quarantine beginnings when the world was enticed with Love Is Blind. Well, the chaotic couple, Mark and Jessica are in the ranking for 2020 popular Halloween costumes. The best part about this duo? You can basically just wear your everyday clothes, but for whoever’s taking on the role of Jessica, don’t forget to get VERY wine drunk and repeatedly tell the world you're 34.
