As soon as the clock strikes four o’clock, the youngest children in my neighborhood ring my doorbell to ask for candy. I am always amused at who they are dressed as, since it has been many years since I have had preschoolers living in my own home. As the night ears on, the costumes the older kids and tweens are wearing are either similar to their younger counterparts or are a bit more no the gory side.

No matter how kids are dressed for halloween, there are always a few very popular costumes that I see more frequently than others.

What will the most popular Halloween costumes be for 2015?

Disney Inside Out Costumes

The mega hit of summer 2015 is the Disney/Pixar collaboration entitled Inside Out. Seen from the mind of 11 year old Riley, a Minnesota transplant now living in the big metropolis of San Francisco, we vicariously live her gamut of emotions as she transitions to her new home. Life lessons are learned and the winning combination of adult humor and children’s humor made this a runway hit and the darlings of the critics.

There are some ready to wear Disney Inside Out costumes available for Joy, Disgust and Anger. You can also put together your own Sadness costume as well. The children at your doorstep are bound to be wearing multicolored faces this year!

Disney Original Movie Costumes- Teen Beach Movie 2 and Descendants

As always, the Disney Channel had a musical as it’s summer feature. Teen Beach Movie 2 was the sequel to the hit 2015 movie Teen Beach Movie. In the sequel, the teens from the 1960’s came to the present and one of them did not want to return to the more stricture times from which they all came from. But, unless they all went back, they would disappear.

Costumes from the film can be found, but if you want to make one yourself, then you can. Just get a red polka dot dress and some flats, add a long haired wig, and you are set!

The children of the bad guys are on a mission, and if they complete it, the bad guys will dominate the kingdom. But are the people they are trying to trick really as evil as their parents claim they are? Does history have to be repeated or can it be changed?
