Best 2012 Halloween costumes for adults
If you take Halloween seriously (and who doesn’t) you’ll want to shop for the perfect costume early. Think about it. It’s your chance to live a fantasy, unleash your inner demon (or zombie), present a side of yourself nobody, and we mean nobody would have ever imagined. Want to crash that party as Caligula? Go for it. Kicking around the idea of donning an inflatable sumo wrestler suit? Have at it. Like to dress up but hate to follow the crowd? We hear you. The bottom line: be recognizable, be safety conscious, and most of all, have fun with it. Because only on All Hallow’s Eve can you get away with it.
If being on trend is also important to you this Halloween, we can help. Shop, select and save on the hottest costumes and classic stand-bys at prices so good they’re almost scary. But remember, the good stuff goes fast, so get there faster! Here’s our short list of must-have costumes for Halloween 2012.

Gotham City rules and Batman is #1 in the superheroes category. Batgirl costumes are also trending high.
