This year, like every year, is going to be filled with kids who want to be superheroes, Jedi, and any other Disney character under the sun. But which ones are going to be the ones you most likely see on your doorstep, and which ones are the ones your kids are most likely going to want to be? Here are some costumes that you'll probably see a lot of this Halloween.

The Incredibles

The Incredibles 2 was a huge success both with adults and kids. There's no doubt that families are going to want to be a superfamily this year. Kids are going to want to be Violet, Dash, Elastic Girl, and even Jack Jack. But they're not the only popular superheroes this year...

Black Panther

Black Panther meant a lot to people and was one of the most successful movies this year. Many kids have a new hero to idolize and represent them in a way that they weren't represented before. Whether it's Black Panther himself, or a warrior of Wakanda, Black Panther is definitely going to be a big one this Halloween. 


I feel like we see these types of costumes every year, but now especially with the revitalization of the Jurassic Park franchise with Jurassic World, we'll probably keep seeing them. And why not? They're fun and it's always entertaining to them watch run around.

Fortnite Characters

If you have a gamer in your house, odds are you've heard of Fortnite. It's all kids, especially boys, want to play. It's the most popular game that everyone's playing, so you can bet that you're going to see a few of the characters doing some of the iconic dances this Halloween. 

Han Solo/Star Wars

The Han Solo movie came out this year and regardless of whether it was a hit or not, it's still Star Wars. Star Wars has been a popular costume choice for kids and adults for decades now and I don't see that slowing down anytime soon. 


This might just be me but has anyone else noticed that unicorns are suddenly popular again? Since September I was at a unicorn-themed birthday party, have seen little girl clothes covered in unicorns, and have noticed unicorn Halloween costumes are popping up more and more. Maybe it's just me, but unicorns and colorful creatures seem to be super popular right now. 

And there you have it. Aside from the usual Wonder Womans, Marvel characters, and princesses, these are a few Halloween costumes that you might want to quickly get your hands on. Or avoid. Happy Trick-or-Treating!
