It may have been a crazy pandemic year, but our top selling costumes in 2020 typically followed pop culture trends and noteworthy personalities from the present and the past. Here are some our top selling costume trends for 2020.
Mandalorian & Grogu Costumes
You can imagine the excitement for the second season of the popular Disney+ Star Wars series meant there were lots of Din Djarins and Baby Yodas for Halloween 2020. The costumes proved to be popular around the December holidays too, with lots of popular costumes completely selling out online. Costumes of these two characters were more popular than any other theme last year. Here are some of the top choice Mandalorian and Grogu costumes and accessories for 2020.
Austin Powers Costumes
A new installment in the classic funny spy series has been teased for years, including earlier this year when director Jay Roach indicated he would be interested in making Austin Powers 4. Nothing has come out of the rumors so far, but the franchise, and the title character and his chief nemesis, remain popular. Austin Powers costumes and accessories like these were hot in 2020.
More 2020 Top Selling Costumes & Accessories
This particular costume was a best-seller, but other outfits for both adults and kids taken from the live-action remake of Mulan were top in 2020. The Disney film was forced to have a home release due to the pandemic, but the story proved to be popular in inspiring Halloween costumes.
This costume was a top seller but other Black Widow catsuit outfits were also popular in 2020. The highly anticipated Marvel prequel movie was a hot title for 2020 that got pushed back due to the pandemic, but the strong female hero character remained popular for both kids and adults last year.
The optimistic, honey-loving cartoon bear would have been a great mascot for 2020. He's a little pudgy, he doesn't wear pants, and he's always trying to see the bright side of a situation. He was certainly popular as a costume choice in 2020. So were adult one-piece pajama sets, which makes sense for all of the families celebrating Halloween at home this year.
In a year when we needed our first responders more than ever, doctors, nurses, police, firefighters, EMTs, and other frontline workers were popular costume choices in 2020. And with all of that time in quarantine and "safer at home", folks took advantage of the situation by playing adult dress-up, apparently. Both categories were popular themes in 2020 costume sales.
