2023’s Most Popular Halloween Costumes

2023s+Most+Popular+Halloween+Costumes

“Barbie” was a hit movie in the summer so it’s no surprise that it’s the most searched Halloween costume of 2023. According to WPTV and Live Now Fox, “Barbie” searches are four times higher compared to last year and Barbie costumes have crossed the one billion mark globally. The sites also name princesses as the second most popular and Spider-Man as the third. NPR says “The most popular costume this year for children is Spiderman, with 2.6 million planning to dress up as the superhero.” One possible cause of this is the huge success of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” and newly released video games that contain the Marvel characters. Although not in the top five, Wednesday Addams was another popular costume search as the new Netflix series was a big hit among adolescents. So this Halloween, get ready to see numerous movies and TV show costumes make an appearance in the school hallways and neighborhood streets.

Khloe Kim, Contributor
Khloe Kim was born on September 28, 2010. Interestingly, this is the same day (different year) the MS Estonia cruiseferry sank. Khloe lives in Fullerton with her parents and older sister. She also has a 3-year-old Golden Retriever named Sugar. For her school life, Khloe went to Charles G. Emery Elementary for 3 years; TK - 1st grade, for 2nd grade she went to Eastwood Elementary, she then moved to Sunset Lane Elementary for grades 3 - 6. Currently, she attends Parks Junior High as a seventh grader. In the future, she is planning to attend Sunny Hills and possibly OCSA for high school. For college, she hopes to get accepted into UCLA because it is the same school her parents attended and met. She isn't very clear on what her future job will be but she would like to be steady and enjoyable. As for her free time, she likes to try new things, ice skate with friends, talk and hang out with friends and family, watch scary action-filled movies as well as TV series, and do spontaneous things. Two quotes Khloe lives by are “Oh, the things you can find if you don’t stay behind.” - Dr. Seus and “When things go wrong, don’t go with them.” - Elvis Presley. She believes that both those quotes help her to keep going forward and keep trying no matter what life throws at her.
