Jonesboro, AR -  Halloween is just over two weeks away and costumes are flying off the shelves.  So many costumes, so little time.What's a parent to do? Sticking with this years best sellers is a good idea.

This year boys are sticking with pop culture.

"For the boys it's still superheros, they've been in that mode for many years now," said costume shop owner, Larry McIlvoy.

On the other hand girls are going for a renaissance look.

"Princesses are making a comeback which is surprising. Barbie costumes are also doing really well."

While it's quite normal for kids to dress up for Halloween, adults are really getting into the act also. You'll never guess what outfits are selling on the adult side.

"Spiderman and Power Rangers are doing good this year for adults."

If superheros aren't your thing you can also be a whoopie cushion, salt and pepper, Michael Myers, or a shark victim just to name a few. However; there are some other interesting costumes, pimps are in this year.

"It's a good endeavor to go to the costume party as a pimp with your girl of the evening."

Golden Grotto,va Jonesboro costume shop, has adult costumes. One customer says more adults should seize this once a year opportunity to let loose.

"It's the one time of year where you can be anybody you want to be and nobody label you as a freak."

The National Retail Association forecasts Americans will fork out $3.1 billion on Halloween this year. That averages to just over $43 dollars per household.
