More 2020 Top Selling Costumes & Accessories

Mulan Costumes Inspired by Live Action Remake

Found on Amazon

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.

Black Widow Costumes for Women

Found on Amazon

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.

Unicorns and Inflatables

Found on Amazon

Both unicorns and inflatable costumes were hot in 2020. Inflatable costumes had an edge during the pandemic -- it's hard to hug someone who is essentially inside a big balloon. This walking pink unicorn inflatable costume was perfect for 2020.

Winnie the Pooh and Adult Onesies

Found on Amazon

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. 

First Responders and Sexy Costumes

Found on Amazon

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.
