Adult Costume Sales will Smash Child Costume Sales this Halloween Season.
Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) October 3, 2007 -- Based on early Halloween sales figures, CostumeHub.com announced today that adults will spend substantially more on their Halloween costumes this year than will be spent on their younger counterparts. With vendor's providing an increasing selection of high-end adult costumes this Halloween season, this trend does not appear to be slowing anytime soon.
Adult costume sales this Halloween season will account for a strong majority of all Halloween costume sales, according to CostumeHub.com.
"Adult costumes account for over 62% of our Halloween costume sales," said David Huffman, president of CostumeHub.com. "Today, more than ever before, adults are celebrating their inner child and are dressing up during Halloween, and this phenomenon has really revolutionized the Halloween costume industry."
According to CostumeHub.com costume manufacturers have responded to this trend by providing an ever growing selection of more authentic and expensive adult costumes.
"The average sale amount for adult costumes has soared over the past few years, due to a wider selection of higher end costumes targeting the adult market," said Huffman. "Adults are just willing to spend more on their costumes, and we try to cater to this by carrying a huge selection of higher-end adult costumes."
Costume categories such as pirate costumes and 1960's / 1970's costumes are extremely popular and will drive a large portion of adult costume sales this Halloween season, according to CostumeHub.com
This adult costume trend, and the increase in Halloween costume sales due to this trend, have unquestionably fueled a quickly growing Halloween industry, an industry which is expected to reach over $5 billion in sales this year.
