PENNSYLVANIA, USA — Spirit Halloween unveiled this year's top Halloween costume trends to help revelers prepare for the holiday.

Classics such as witches and clowns made the cut but be prepared also to see new characters from popular shows and movies.

Spirit Halloween found these costumes trending in 2022:


Whether it be a coven witch, enchantress witch, celestial witch, or another witch of your creation, those out and about on Halloween will almost certainly see a slew of witches flying around on their broomsticks.

TV and movie characters

While characters from animated classics like "Toy Story" and "Winnie the Pooh" are typically popular with children, teens and adults are getting in on the fun this year with costumes from shows like "Stranger Things" and "Yellowstone."


Expect to see every type of clown, from those with honking noses and too-big shoes to the frightful Pennywise.


Ghouls, vampires and zombies—oh my! Plenty of people are expected to embrace the Halloween spirit and dress up in scary costumes designed to strike fear into the heart.


Don't forget your favorite video game or anime character when deciding what to wear for Halloween celebrations. Characters from top franchises like "Minecraft," "Naruto," "Fortnite" and "Demon Slayer" are expected to be all the rage this year.

Group costumes

Get the gang together and coordinate a group costume for even more fun. People of all ages can enjoy this trend with costumes from "Finding Nemo" to the all-new "Monster High" adult collection.
