Halloween is just around the corner and the Hult Store team are looking forward to dressing up for the occasion. One of the great things about Halloween is the fun factor! If you are an enthusiast it’s an opportunity to be inspired, creative and throw away the rule book.
We thought long and hard about what the popular costumes of 2016 are likely to be. Some of the best are inspired by the year’s most memorable moments, characters or events. That being said here are our picks of the top 10 most popular Halloween Costumes this year:
1. Pokémon Go Trainer
The release of Pokémon Go completely revolutionized game play. Forcing you to get up, leave your house and explore in order to advance in the game while switching between the real and virtual world. We predict that quite a few Halloween costumes will be inspired by the game

2. Harley Quinn – Suicide Squad
Female super villain Harley Quinn is a firm favorite this Halloween. The revival of her character with colorful hair and outfit make her stand out. The DC comic antihero movie Suicide Squad gave birth to Harley Quinn on the big screen and we’re sure this will be a popular choice this October

5. Game of Thrones
Notice the title is Game of Thrones instead of a specific character like fan favorite John Snow, or the heart warming Hodor, how about Mother of Dragons, Khaleesi? It doesn't matter the character because any Game of Thrones costume is a good one.

6. Snapchat filter
The popularity of Snapchat filters has changed how we enjoy social media; in fact they've transformed how we take pictures. Notice how many profile pictures or videos feature the flower crown or dog filter. It’s completely irresistible. It may take a little D.I.Y but what's better than having your own filter on Halloween
