Popular Costume By State: Will Utah Choose A Witch Again?
Every year there are lists showing the top Halloween costume picked by each state. The last two years, kids in Utah have picked being a witch. Nevada chose Elvis last year and Colorado went with Buzz Lightyear. I’ll bet the map sees a lot of Barbie this year and maybe even Utah will go pink. Of course, we could see a witch Barbie just to stick with tradition.
I was just invited to a Halloween party, and I have to wear a costume. I have designed costumes for my kids, but it has been a long time since I had to think of one. So, I have begun to look at what costumes will be popular this year.
As I said earlier, it looks like Barbie will be big after the success of the movie. Creative parents will probably make the Barbie Dream House or her pink car into a costume. Depressed Barbie or the anti-Barbie is always an option. If I went as Ken, I would have an excuse to wear a toupee.
As for adults, the Mario Brothers movie should inspire costumes this year. Jack Black’s Bowser was pretty amazing, and I think I could do the "Peaches" song. It was pretty simple with not a lot of high notes. There are all the Mario Bros characters available. Maybe I could go as the red turtle shell.
I could always do the super creative pop culture costumes. I could go as the Taylor Swift tour. Maybe I could dress as the dirt from the asteroid that landed in Utah, or possibly one of the alien lights military pilots have reported seeing. Even more locally, I could be a full reservoir or receding drought.
I’ll probably just go as an aging rock star. Maybe one that passed away recently. I’ve always been a big fan of Tom Petty.
