Will Doc McStuffin or Wolverine be ringing your doorbell today? Most likely you’ll see many of both, depending on the age and sex of the trick or treaters in your neighborhood. According to one survey, the top five kids’ Halloween costumes for 2013 will be the characters from Despicable Me 2, Monster’s University, various superheroes, Sofia the First, and Doc McStuffin.

You might also find a few creative DIY costumes among adults. According to one recent newspaper article some top trending ideas for costumes are Flo, the Progressive Insurance spokesperson; Grumpy Cat; the guys from Duck Dynasty; and homages to Sharknado.

Of course, we’ll still see lots of princesses, Disney or otherwise, along with witches. Zombies will still be seen prowling the streets, as well as the occasional vampire, and you’ll probably notice a Walter White here and there. Hopefully, you won’t open your door to find a Honey Boo Boo or twerking Miley Cyrus, but you never know.

Happy Halloween from all of us at Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers. Don’t steal too much of your kids’ candy!
