My Halloween couture trade inside connection Rhonda Cowan, co-owner of Etoile costume and gift shop on Venture Boulevard in Tarzana CA reveals the hot trends for 2016. Rhonda and her sister Sandy outfit high-end Valley Girls and Guys and the studios. Look for their lineup at parties and trick-or-treat parades near you. From Rhonda,
“Trends…Deadpool, Harley Quinn, Joker, Harry Potter is still popular. Pirates are always popular, the 20’s never goes out of style along with Gatsby now.
Super Heroes always for kids! Especially Captain America, Thor and the villain Loki.
Because of their recent passing, Prince and David Bowie costumes are in demand for adults…Michael Jackson is a perennial. Star Wars is surging again. Ghost Busters for preteens and teens.”
There you have it ghouls and guys, and for more Halloween fun be sure to download your copy of
A Harvest and Halloween Handbook from Amazon or BN.com.
