Re: My Halloween Costume Predictions

The costumes people choose at Halloween are a snapshot of the zeitgeist of that time.  Fearlessly, I look into my crystal ball and predict the following for Halloween 2009:

  • Akasha, Queen of the Damned and Heath Ledger’s Joker have lost none of their appeal judging by the number of hits on this blog.
  • Zombies and pirates will make a good showing once again.
  • Michael Jackson costumes will be popular, driven both by the Gloved One’s celebrity status and by his Halloween-themed music videos like “Thriller”.
  • With the 2008 Presidential Election over, expect a sharp drop-off in political-themed costumes. Persistent names-in-the-news Sarah Palin and Bernie Madoff may show up.

    I like your predictions… I was waffling between a pirate and Michael Jackson but ended up going with a cop because I get to have handcuffs!
