High School Musical Costumes

The closer it gets to Halloween, the more people look to the popular tv and latest released hit movies to see what costume is going to be the “in” thing this year. 

Well I can tell you what I think will be hot this year for children – does East High Wildcats or Lava Springs Country Club sound familiar?  It should if you have children!  It’s High School Musical 2!  Wow, can you believe how popular that show is?  According to USA Today, the Nielsen ratings reported that on August 17th, 17.2 million viewers tuned in to watch the premier on the Disney Channel.  This number made it the most watched cable telecast in history.  That is amazing!  My three kids were definitely part of that crowd because they were literally glued to the television while it was on.  I think we’ll see a lot of kids dressed this Halloween as Zach, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan, Chad and Taylor.

The original High School Musical was released on January 20, 2006 and was one of the most successful Disney Channel Original Movies produced.  The film’s soundtrack was the best-selling album that year.  I’m sure they knew then that its sequel, High School Musical 2, would make it to the history books.  Apparently a second sequel, High School Musical 3, is slated for release in 2008 with that film debuting in movie theaters. Wow, it looks like this whole High School Musical phenomonon will be the “in” costumes next year too!   The DVD of High School Musical 2 is expected to arrive in mid December, just in time for the perfect Christmas present! Check out the High School Musical costumes here: High School Muscial Halloween Costumes.

Another “in” costume for the girls will be the Bratz characters.  Bratz: The Movie, was released earlier this month and the costumes for Cloe, Sasha, Jade and Yasmin are flying off the shelf.  And it’s not just the characters themselves – you can be a Bratz cheerleader, a pirate, a witch or a Bratz devil.  There are many to choose from and your daughter will love them.  You can see more Bratz Halloween Costume here: Bratz Halloween Costumes.
