Halloween Costumes That Remain Favorites - Year After YearOn yearly basis, Halloween parties are filled with many people dressed up in different outlandish and fantastic costumes. Yet there are some costumes that are favorites with many people and even though they might have been altered slightly from one Halloween party to the next, they still remain popular. This could be because of some sort of famous event or TV show, a bestselling book, or a celebrity from long ago, that people, especially women, find fascinating. Following are just a few of the Halloween costumes that make their appearance at many Halloween parties.Everywhere you search on the Internet for Halloween costumes, you will notice that Alice in Wonderland features all over. This is due to the movie of the same name which stars Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway, both are famous popular actors. Apart from Alice herself being a favorite Halloween costume, the other characters from the story as well are also very popular like the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts; the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, and last but not least, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.The movie Shrek is another source of inspiration for great costumes for many people at Halloween time every year, with people doing all they can to outdo each other dressed up as Shrek, Princess Fiona, the Donkey, Rapunzel, and Puss n' Boots.Someone always dresses up as a Viking at Halloween parties, and this year will be no exception, due to the movie How to Train Your Dragon. Most of the characters from this movie are popular with fans, who will no doubt once again, dress up as Terrible Terror, Night Fury, Astrid, and Truffaut, to name but a few.Not one Halloween party is held without there being a Robin Hood or a maid Marion present or a Friar Tuck or a regal King Richard. This is another movie that is a great inspiration for costumes, as is Toy Story 3, which inspires many people to dress up as Jessie, Buzz Light year, Ken, and many others.Although a very sad way to inspire a costume, the death of Michael Jackson in 2009, has prompted many of his fans to dress up like him at this time of the year. He will no doubt be evident at Halloween parties for many years to come.
