UK fancy dress retailer online, FancyDressShack.co.uk today announced an increase in the sales of Halloween costumes thanks to the new movie, Hotel Transylvania, soon to be released in cinemas.
Hotel Transylvania is a film about Dracula's (Adam Sandler) fabulous five steak hotel where monsters and their families can come to get away from the day to day life of scaring humans and hiding from them in their down time. On one weekend Dracula has invited many world famous monsters to stay, including Frankenstein (Kevin James) and Griffin The Invisible Man (David Spade). Unfortunately this is also the weekend a human boy Jonathon (Andy Samberg) stumbles across the hotel and falls in love with Mavis (Selena Gomez), Dracula's 114 year old daughter.
The film has been said to be one of the funniest Halloween themed movies of all time. Kelly Woods, Customer Service Manager for FancyDressShack.co.uk added, "The end of September and all of October is always busy for us because so many people want to buy Halloween costumes. This year however we've found that people are starting to buy their Halloween costumes even earlier, and when we asked them why they told us it was so they could wear them to the premiere of Hotel Transylvania as well."
Year upon year the sales of Halloween products have increased around the world, as reported by The New York Times. Most of these sales will be attributed to costumes that many people only wear once and then either throw away or give to charity shops.
This year however is showing a new trend of people buying their costumes early and wearing them more than once in order to get the most out of them. This shows that people want to get more from their Halloween costumes and will more than likely keep them for use at a later date.
