6 knockoff Halloween costumes that will make you raise an eyebrow

It is not easy to find suitable clothing for Halloween, especially when retailers do not always have to pay official licensing fees. In order to enter the spirit (pun), here is the 2016 best boots and unlicensed Halloween costumes comprehensive report.

While the latest trend of clothing tends to dominate the trend of radio waves – most of this year is superhero movies and weird politics – we try to make sure that this list is for everyone. Of course, there are some commendable superheroes and some costumes that may be general political intentions, but in fact are caught in a nightmare. However, the 2016 clothing catalog also provides a return to the 90’s, poor thoughts of late celebrities, shouts to online horror films, and any “hell of the teenage anime fighter”. It is a rich tapestry, woven from the most purely WTF, and a middle finger to the local copyright attorney.

In order to include it in this list, all the clothing must be easy to identify, without any explanation what needs the official brand or franchise. They also have to pass a basic offensive test, so there is no mark as “sexy [insert cultural construction here]” within a thousand miles of this list. Fortunately, these standards still have a lot of work to do, below you will see.

Purple fashion clothing

This year there are a lot of out of the prince’s clothing. In this many purple pain pop music dress, in addition to unfavorable pun, there are hope that there is no hope that the terrible taste, has risen to the top. Tip: Do not put the word “pain” in a dress based on painkillers who die.


To the “no matter what time” and “As but!” This classic tone, once again let the young man from the movie “Notionless” stand out, the company also sold a called “predecessor wig” Prince hair Folder, summed up their commitment to the overall attitude of things

Dragon and adult brutal warrior’s mother

All these are not Daenerys-Targaryen’s costumes are hard work, but eventually there are two outstanding manifestations. One of the left, the mother of the dragon, in some way was identified as Danny’s knockout, although with any of the things that have been worn almost no similarities, but worth noting. (Sometimes she wears blue clothes, that’s it). Right-hand clothing, adult barbarian warrior, may mean being at Ves Dothrak’s Dany, but there is a feeling like a manufacturer out of adult child’s description of her what is no Googling its own show.

Rebellious and sexy death assassin

The other two, this time Marvel’s motormoutered mercenary lady Rebellious, a.k.a. Sexy death assassin. I’m actually digging “rebellious”, which sounds like a very important female rapper’s stage name. Sexy Death Assassin just sounds good. Is she sexy in her life, then she’s dead? Does she feel sexy because of death? Anyway, hate.

American sexy captain

Taking into account the US captain: the civil war is one of the 2016 superhero movie, if there is no American sexy captain, our list will not be completed. The costume was probably inspired by the American captain had to pause some of the movie in the middle of the fight, pulled his tights out of his ass and dealt with chest sweat from his clothes that could not breathe the fabric.

Misfit Hipster

Grand Final: Harley Quinn, from this year’s other large super super hero event, suicide team. Or, Misfit Hipster, who was before the murder was cool. The first person she killed was an obscure inhabitant of Gotham’s completely non-upscale community. You may have never heard of him.

As you can see, this year’s clothing shopping has plenty of room, whether you are sexy and dead, trying to bypass HBO’s licensing department, wearing something that their characters never cross, or in your name from you The cracks in the fishing of patriotism Remember that no screaming “Halloween” is like almost completely indifferent to copyright.

Owner talking about restarting the iconic Halloween costumes company Ben Cooper!

Ready for nostalgia. Ben Cooper came back, baby.

Today, the Halloween costume business has developed a popular culture permit that allows you to buy high quality masks and apparel based on almost all your favorite movies and TV shows. but it is not the truth.

At least Ben Cooper came, at least.

Ben Cooper was originally set up by Ben Cooper in 1937, and a few years later Ben Cooper quickly began to dominate Halloween. While other companies are launching clothing that portrays the general monsters (such as witches and demons), Ben Cooper has come up with popular licenses such as Spiderman, Batman and The Munsters, and even has released Ridley Scott’s clothing alien People, this is not a bold move in 1979. Alien is, after all, an R-class movie.

Financial difficulties in the eighties troubled Ben Cooper, 1988 eventually led to the company filed for bankruptcy. After several years of efforts, Ben Cooper finally in 1992 by Rubi clothing company finally did not exist after the absorption.

Twenty five years after the official closure of the store, Ben Cooper’s plastic masks and vinyl work clothes were still remembered by those who grew up. Many of the boxed costumes sold in pure dollars at the time of the initial release are now acquiring the price of collectors on eBay, proving that the simplicity of Halloweens still exists in the past. And all these nostalgia, which in the company has been largely unexpectedly returning from the grave.

Yes, Ben Cooper is back, we have the opportunity to talk with the original co-founder Nathan Cooper son Ira J. Cooper and his partner Jon Miller talk about exciting restart!

A year and a half ago, Ben Cooper remembered his memory from the deepest sag of childhood, “Miller explained to us, detailing the events that led to the company’s restart.” I will never forget my 1977 Year wearing the Halloween C3PO costume. Last year I bought an eBay, like a completely dirty time. Even to the familiar smell of vinyl masks. ”

“I’ve always wanted to know if Ben Cooper is not a real person, or a brand, so I decided to try to find out,” he continued. “Let me go to Ira J. Cooper, who wants to talk to me about the family business and how they stay on the Halloween market for a long time.I think Ben Cooper’s story is as good as the costumes and masks they make Know that other people want to hear that is the driving force that I and I bring back the brand, but neither of us can imagine the direct interest we will get from everyone. A few decades later, it was really amazing.

Excluding the details of the re-release, Ira J. Cooper elaborated the plan.

He said: “We are very careful to bring the original Ben Cooper aesthetics back to everyone’s memory,” he told us. “This is a dark and soft role that is mixed with a child-friendly Halloween prototype, and we think that if they are still today, Ben Cooper will be resolved. In 2017 you will start here and there To some limited collection, such as enamel needles, wall decorations, shirts, posters, etc. We have a website shop that will also work with some really talented artists to be done by Ben Cooper’s inspired Halloween art to do our own thing. Like artists who focus on working with people who are as keen on us as masks and garments.If they come up with some very wild things, we are very happy to work with them. Hear everyone’s memories of Ben Cooper are very Interesting, for our fans, we will be getting closer to Halloween, there will be some real surprises. Some things that are what you expect, but other things like fashion clothing, and even Coopers defense!

“We are going to play with limited companies this year and we are a huge fan of the company this year, and last year we were offering CreepyCo, and we absolutely wanted to work with it, and this year we will do more work,” Ira continued. -A-Go-Go is another company that we are pleased to be able to offer now available for the oversized official Ben Cooper aluminum mask wall decoration. There are others others that we are actively working for the 2017 Halloween project and will have More talk, because we are a little closer to the fall.I am superstitious nature, so I do not want to give up some of their ghosts – but enough to say they are a real awesome collection and meet what we think Ben Cooper is willing to love. I think fans will really like the time and attention of these unique items, and in 2018, when we look forward to the brand really take off, they will be a good leader. ”

Jon Miller’s enthusiasm for the iconic brand paved the way for its restart, and his view of Halloween prospect was very passionate.

“We like our fans and always want to hear their voices, not just the best memories they’ve ever had from Halloweens, and they want us to do it today through our iconic halloween costumes design,” he told we. “We have even suggested to us that we make their beloved Ben Cooper costume so that they can wear them again! The sky is really the limit, Halloween is now as popular as Halloween.We think Ben Cooper And the character has a great relationship, and the role of play and comic book culture rise.As a lot of things have been organically fell to the position, so we bring this brand is a very good feeling.I really thank Ira Cooper back I’m on the phone and are willing to open the Ben Cooper vault to me, just like being invited to Willy Wonka’s candy factory, just because it is Ben Cooper’s Halloween costume factory. Really nothing better! ”

In view of celebrity deaths earlier this year, it is expected that a few legendary music and movies will be seen at Halloween parties, including David Bowie, Prince and Gene Wilder.

Rubin said he saw the interest of Willy Wonka clothing soaring, and Halloween’s website is a company in Minnesota, so they will certainly sell a “purple rain” and “purple rock legend” clothing.

Spirit, selling a “chin” looking for Bowie, there is also an inseparable part of the shop devoted to the prince of this iteration.

“You can pay tribute to Purple Rain with purple options,” Lombardo said.

The trend that may be unlikely to occur in 2016 is a real Halloween appearance – gorilla dress. There is a good reason to expect the cover of the carnival to pay tribute to the gorilla Harambe from the Cincinnati Zoo, Harambe after being killed in May, a child dragged it into the wall.

Rubink says HalloweenCostumes.com does not openly promote any Harambe costumes, but for this purpose customers have been buying “sexy gorilla” clothing and other non-sexy fares.

“People are taking and running it, he puts another idea of ​​the moment – Brad and Angelina … divorce if you are ferocious enough to pull a closed one,” said Matt Shanley, content marketing manager for Halloween apparel wholesale.

“This year is all about the power of girls,” Lombardo said, whether it meant Batman, Super Girl or a miracle woman, who would soon celebrate her 75th anniversary.

One of the most popular garments since 2015 was Harley Quinn, the suicide team, and the comic film appeared even a few months ago. This character is getting your own film and is still with the clown in this year’s lucky draw.

Another popular choice is Deadpool, the comic super hero in the past winter at the box office ups and downs.

“Star Wars” is the film last year, “Star Wars: power to wake up” the performance, and this year on the “gangster” interest. Power is particularly powerful, with Rey’s clothing, the 12th film actress, is still the popular choice for Halloween in 2016.

Inspired by the “Jurassic World” inflatable dinosaur clothing is still a hot commodity, but also depicts the new “Star Wars” model BB-8 dinosaur clothing.

Nostalgia is still a draw, for the recent full female “Ghostbusters” to restart the premature criticism, almost no for women and girls to sell with a proton package beige sportswear.

TV is the main inspiration for children’s clothing, Disney Junior “PJ mask” series and Nickelodeon’s “Paw Patrol” similar.

The new 2016 is DIY looks inspired by the Netflix series of “stranger things”. As long as catch yourself a bike, blonde wig, yellow clothes and frozen waffles become eleven (a little fake on the nose will not hurt), or let yourself own a down jacket, glasses, red wig and a pile of books In the guise of ordinary Barb, a short-lived fan likes.

So RIP this Halloween, RIP Harambe, you may have a stranger over the years.

But of course, a normal person will not have an assistant, you can call the world’s largest garment manufacturer Rubie’s Costume Co. executive vice president Howard Beige, as well as sales in the United States of all Halloween costumes about half of the manufacturers. , Including all the Star Wars. Abrams’ assistant arrived at Mickey because he pulled the Rubie factory in the Queens area, where he was stirring the emergency order for selling clothes.

Geometric size drops some common characters like witches or vampires – a large number of small companies have made these – but more than 20,000 pieces of clothing and accessories sold by retailers such as Wal-Mart, Amazon and party markets, Ruby may play in your Halloween An important role to celebrate. Beginning in 1951, the Queen’s Soda Store / Novelty Store in the past 65 years has grown to earn hundreds of millions of dollars in international business.

Rubie’s also launched 15 subsidiaries in Japan, the Netherlands, the UK and other countries, selling carnival costumes in Brazil, Mexico selling death dresses, and Easter Bunny and Santa Claus packages around the world. But in the United States, its bread and butter are still Halloween. Companies and holidays enjoy a different relationship with happy marriage: the success of one person promotes the growth of another person. “Ten thousand years ago, Halloween is not the same,” Mickey said with a smile. “I like to think we have a hand.”

According to the National Retail Federation (National Retail Federation) statistics, the Americans this year will be Halloween candy, clothing and decorations hit a breakthrough $ 8.4 billion. This figure in a short span of 10 years to jump nearly 70%, so that Halloween after Christmas decoration sales of the second holiday. In the process, it becomes more and more aging. Longer: American holiday American historian Lesley Bannatyne said: “Once the children’s holiday has become the majority of adults now involved in things.” This year nearly half of American adults will Will be dressed, twice as much as 30 years ago. Candy and clothing are cheap enough, Halloween is also a large part of the economic recession; 2008 sales actually increased, because, as the beige said, “almost anyone can buy from Wal-Mart $ 9 mask ”

But it is not easy to figure out what the mask should be and what to do. More people are dressed for Halloween, but they do not like the same, according to news events, movies or internet mode, in a few weeks or months ago virus, picking clothing in early October. Rubie tries to predict the trend of Halloween a year ahead, but keeps adjusting its plans, such as the expected large (“Legend of Mount Tai”), the beloved actor dies (Gene Wilder’s Willie Wonka costumes will be popular this year), or millions People are ravaged in the Pokémon Go Glow and Beige found himself making a lot of the last moment of Pikachu costumes to fill thousands of back orders. Pokemon will enter this year’s top ten best-selling clothing, was the first time popular, and did not happen. “Thank God, we already have a license and design,” he said. “Otherwise, it will be a disaster.”

At the age of 58, beige hair grayed out, smile never faded. He kept enough queen accent, and when he complained about his waist, his “yuuuge” version sounded like Donald Trump. He and his brother Marc and sister Maxine (another brother has retired) to co-operate the family business, but when his brothers and sisters focus on the financial and customer accounts, Beige played a warm clothing lovers, sweet Hollywood studio The company designs clothing according to its own film characters, and then persuades the store to carry. “Howie is one of the most enthusiastic people in his company, and the quality of anyone he meets in this business,” said Pam Kaufman, chief marketing officer and president of Nickelodeon Consumer Products.

Danny Gurganus, a partner at Danny Trix & Kix, said: “They want the pulse of what people want.” In Texas spring, the 17,000-square-foot clothing store was said by Danny Gurganus The He estimated that Rubie’s sales were 60% of his sales.

He soon sold them to other shops. “A few years later, I found a word: wholesale,” Howard said, “At that time, we just put it as something to sell in the city.

At the time of Rubin’s death, in 1972, the soda shop had become a comprehensive clothing company, pulling $ 100,000 a year, most of which comes from high-quality rental clothing, which costs about $ 300 and rents of about $ 30. The newly widowed Tillie even distributed the company among the four children and told them that if not enough to support the four families she would sell. “That’s what we do,” Mickey said, and he’s still in high school.

Mickey’s car journey coincides with the Halloween way of celebrating a major change. In the 1970s, people stopped renting clothing for cheap production of disposable garments.
