Traditional Costumes Prevail for Arkansas Trick-or-Treaters

OCTOBER 31, 2006 - Posted at 7:44 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Expect to see lots of pirates and superheroes roaming the streets of your neighborhood tonight in search of candy.  Costume shop owners say those costumes are the most popular this year.

Gayla McCoy, who owns Gayla's Costume Shoppe in Little Rock, says costumes inspired by the movie Pirates of the Caribbean are popular, as are ghosts, witches, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe.

At Halloween Express in Fayetteville and Rogers, pirate and superhero get-ups are tops.

But many officials are warning kids to avoid masks that cover their entire face, because it can obstruct vision.  Arkansas Children's Hospital says that costumes should be brightly colored and that children out after dark should carry a flashlight or wear reflective tape.

As for the weather, some trick-or-treaters may encounter some showers, but most of the state should stay dry.
