What Costumes are Trending for Halloween 2012?

Will this year's costume trends be politically based because of the presidential election year or ripped from the headlines because of zombie mania?

Never is art imitating life so relevant as during Halloween. So what will this year's costumes tell us?

The sale of masks of presidential candidates during Halloween are said to be as good a predictor as any polls out there in an election year. Newsbusters reports that pre debates, masks of President Barack Obama were outselling those of Mitt Romney by about 30 percent. Post debate, however, that has flipped the other way and is now at about 2 to 1 in favor of Romney masks. I guess we'll soon see.

Another big seller linked to the election - Big Bird. No surprise there. And what would Halloween be without Honey Boo Boo. But when it comes to ripped from the headlines, what could better represent the true ghoulish spirit of Halloween than zombie mania. The story of the attack in Florida certainly had the nation's attention for a while. Anyone choosing zombie mania as a theme could even dress up as a couple - the victim and the bath salt laced attacker. For that matter, a third person in the party might be able to find a way to represent bath salts.

So what costume are you going to be wearing on Oct. 31 this year and what trends do you expect to see come out of Halloween 2012?

I never was one to go with a trend. I go with what might make me look good. One of my students is going as "Queen of the Nile". That's sounds like a good costume, one I can wear eyeliner with! lol But to answer the question, zombies seem to be in this year (vampires last year). For adults, probably anything political.

I think we're going to plump for http://www.outletcoachstoday.com the bigger one. It won't be the http://www.coachoutletod.com easiest to tow behind our push-bikes, http://www.coachs-outletcar.com particularly over Berlin's cobbles, but it will make http://www.coachoutletdp.com for swifter trips to interviews, http://www.coachoutletwo.com and it will save money for the licence-payer. http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com Berlin makes getting around http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net on two wheels a pleasure.I have cycled in London http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org but gave it up after too-many rants at a http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net white van. But in Berlin, it is a joy. Firstly, the city is http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com pretty flat, and secondly, there are endless cycle http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com tracks. Thirdly, everybody has a bike - so car-drivers are http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com probably also cyclists in their other lives and so keep http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org their eyes wide open.The test of whether cycling has really taken off in a city http://www.coachoutletrf.com is who does it. In New York, it is urban warriors, young men usually, who zip http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com aggressively between lanes.In London, it's a bit of that, but also, I suspect, http://www.coachoutletuser.net eco-zealots who are asserting their credentials - though the Boris bike scheme may be taking it more mainstream.In Berlin, it is the people.
