What is the best Halloween costume in 2018? 

According to refinery29.com the best costume on Amazon is Rubie’s Women’s Star Wars Stormtrooper costume which is $40.94. According to Thrillist.com, they gathered up all the data from each state in which costume the people were most interested in. About 43 states had all the same interest in the popular game Fortnite in which they could dress up as their favorite character. Fortnite is the most popular game now — not only for kids, but adults also play the game so that makes the costumes sell more. Fortnite gained 80 million players from January to June. The total spending this Halloween will reach $9 billion with the average being $86.79 on decorations, candy, costumes and more. 

“Every kid will want to be their favorite Fortnite character this Halloween because that’s how much they love the game,” Alexander Corona Senior at Morton East said. 

Kids that don’t play Fortnite will probably dress as their favorite superhero. 

“I feel like the best costume this Halloween will be super hero’s because kids love the movies and a movie barely came out which is Infinity War,” Juan Salgado senior at Morton East said. 

People’s opinions might be because of how popular or the success something has.  

“Fortnite has been the most popular game for a whole year so that will be the best costumes this year’s Halloween,” Angel Baez senior at Morton East said.

    Being that I’m a huge Marvel fan if I were able to pick out a costume for myself it would be a Superhero theme but that’s just me being biased, I’m sure if I was into Mario I would’ve dressed up as Mario.

    I don’t do Halloween, but looking at the costumes, they can be well made. The one thing I will never accept are Fortnite Costumes, they are just scream “Fellow Kids”. Other than that, I have nothing else to say.

    This article surprised me because it’s crazy how much money people spend on Halloween each year. I also didn’t know that most people wanted to dress up as their Fornite favorite characters. But I also agree because before that video game got famous children would dress up as their favorite superhero or movie just like the article mentioned.

    this is a very interesting remark, i strongly believed most people would stick to the classical horror movie themed costumes but this new wave of video game and superhero themed costumes really shocks me because of not only the youth participating in this but also some adults which really shows how quickly an idea can spread or become relevant in today’s society.

    Being a huge Star Wars fan, of course I’ll say SW themed costumes are amazing but I don’t think they’re the best. I think the best are the ones that you make homemade with family because you can remember all the laughs and mistakes while making it unlike just simply buying one of the most overrated costumes, a Stormtrooper which according to the article is around $40 and to me that seems a bit too much for something you’re going to wear for one day only.
