Hot Halloween costumes for 2010
Kids: To infinity and beyond!
Princesses are very popular with girls. In fact, princess was the most popular costume for kids in the NRF survey. Tinker Bell and other fairies will also be trick-or-treating this year.
As for the boys, superheroes reign supreme: Spider-Man, Superman, Batman and Iron Man are tops.
And don't worry if you see kids dressed up as Buzz Lightyear, you haven't been magically transported back to the late '90s. "Toy Story 3" has made the character a popular costume again.
Vampire costumes are popular with teenagers because of the "Twilight" movies and all the other TV shows with vampires that are on now, says Sheerin.
Other favorites in the NRF survey include: witches, pumpkins, ninjas, bees, angels and athletes.
