Before you say something stupid about it being too early to talk about Halloween... First off, it's Halloween. Second, I saw Christmas decor on the shelves at Walmart over the weekend. Third, Spirit Halloween announced two Lawton locations this year, opening soon. Deal with it.

Every year the Halloween thing goes just about the same. By the time Halloween is here, it's usually too late to snag a solid costume. Not so shockingly, the popular picks often sell out long before the spooky season begins... but we're not letting that happen this year.

If you go back in time, you can usually guess which costumes were the standouts of years prior. 2021 was all about the red jumpsuits of Squid Game. 2020 was a wash in pandemic status and Tiger King. 2019 belonged to baby Yoda, 2018 was Marvels on the success of Avengers and Black Panther... The list continues as you go back. 2022 will be no different.

The last year has seen a few huge hits, and with the shows that will be airing up through Halloween, it's easy to see which costumes will make heads turn. Get an early start.

2022's Most Popular Halloween Costumes

It's not hard to guess which Halloween costumes will be the most likely to win you contest gold, you just have to look at the last year of entertainment out of Hollywood. With massive hits like Stranger Things, Top Gun, and whatever Jurassic Park their on now, 2022's Halloween costume offerings are a breeze.

You just need some pro-tips. While social skills are usually developed over a few years, here are a few "fake it till you make it" tips to get you started.
