Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble!
What is Michigan’s most popular Halloween costume for 2022? The websites scholaroo.com, frightgeist.withgoogle.com, and attsavings.com have the WITCH as Michigan’s most popular. The Witch costume is a classic and not a huge stretch that it helps that Hocus Pocus 2 just dropped on Disney Plus. In addition to Witch, Michigan likes the Pirate, Mouse and Angel costumes also.
I have always WANTED to have and make great costumes, but I always seem to concentrate on the next animatronic monster or spooky prop. But when I get inspired I can get some pretty good ideas together for costumes. My favorite costume I ever did was my Cool Dude Alien. To create this costume, I combined a Metaluna Mutant mask from This Island Earth with an actual gas mask so I could breathe comfortably while wearing it.
My wife really excels at costumes and has won contests and goes to great effort to complete her costumes. One year that we have no photographic evidence of, she dumped a gallon of theater blood over her prom dress to be Carrie. While this may have been one of her greatest costumes it also caused her to have one of the most severe allergic reactions in her life. Art is pain!
While looking for Michigan’s most popular Halloween costume, I found Google’s Frightgeist, which is a really awesome list of every state’s favorite costume based on Google Trends. Turns out Witch is Number One costume nationally also. The site even breaks it down into certain areas of different states. For instance, Alpena’s top costume is Broken Doll. Traverse City, Detroit and Kalamazoo all love the Witch. And Flint/Saginaw like the Dinosaur.
