Halloween is just around the corner and approaching quicker than you can say “boo,” Spirit Halloween has revealed the top costume trends for the upcoming spooky season.

According to the National Retail Federation in the US, people who celebrate Halloween spent a record $10 billion celebrating the event in 2021.

Popular picks from TV shows like Stranger Things and movies like Sonic the Hedgehog and Hocus Pocus are among the top choices.

Last year, one of the top costumes was Sexy Bernie Sanders. However, he will not be making a comeback for the top trends of 2022.

The fear of clowns is one that many people share. If your friends are among those who fear clowns, what better way to scare them than to dress up as a clown yourself this Halloween?

Whether a typical circus clown or something more elaborate like Pennywise from It, you have many choices if you go down this humorously creepy path.

Cartoony creations
