Halloween, a party that grows
Halloween has become another annual event on the calendar, which is accompanied by its own commercial campaign, both stores and party halls. And is that there are many who are disguised by this date – a survey aims to disguise a 22% of the Spanish -. But the costume is not the star product of Halloween, as it can be for Carnival, for example. The king product of October 31 in the main stores of the party items is makeup. This is indicated by three of the reference shops in this sector in Barcelona, such as the historic La Bolsera and El Relámpago, and the international chain with 77 stores in Spain Party Fiesta.In these stores they have detected an increase in the celebration of Halloween through their salts. But with differences. Àlex Ramon, head of El Relámpago, admits that you’ve noticed “push in recent years”. “It’s an important campaign, but it does not surpass either Christmas or Carnival,” he says. For its part, Party Fiesta notes that since 2012 have grown 50% Halloween sales in Spain-40% of the business is in Catalonia, and that is the most important campaign of the year for the company.
On the other hand, the store of packaging and party items La Bolsera notes that the Halloween campaign is not even among the 10 most important of the year. “We sell quality and exclusivity and we do not have costumes or masks of known characters, it’s a fight we can not enter,” they say. Accessories to decorate the house and makeup are, above all, your main sales for these dates.
Costumes for Halloween tend to be more and more related to terror. From The Lightning confirm this trend also in the little ones: “they want the same thing as adults, zombies, monsters … the party has been de-energized”. Party Party points out that among teenagers triumphs related to series and movies triumph. And the latest novelty on Halloween is that they also sell clothing for pets, especially dogs.
Here are some ideas about the costumes and accessories that are most worn on this Halloween:
1) Your face + makeup: all the establishments consulted indicate that the best-selling items are makeup and special effects. And every time there is a demand for more quality, the three stores coincide. In this way, each person can ‘mold’ the terror in his face as pleases. Within makeup, the most sold are blood, of which there are various densities and colors. Containers of medium and up to one liter of artificial blood are sold.
2) Masks: many are those who celebrate Halloween with a mask, a growing trend in recent years. “10 years ago we did not sell a mask,” says the head of El Relámpago. Àlex Ramon notes that 3-4 years ago they have started selling. Some of the masks that are worn on Halloween are generic horror characters – werewolves, zombies, deformed faces … – and other iconic films of this genre – Saw, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Joker, Scream.
3) Decoration: the Halloween party is also noticed in the interiors of bars, restaurants, nightclubs … and private houses this October 31. Some of the options are spiders, cobwebs, skulls and, of course, the classic Halloween pumpkins, among others.
4) Costumes: the classic Halloween costumes are the zombie, witch, skull, mummy or vampire, both for men and women. In the United States the tradition is not related to terror and, for example, the unicorn costume is quite typical.
One of the characters in the movie ‘Suicide Squad’, Harley Quinn, is one of the most successful costumes among girls. Last year I was the star and this year I was on the same path. Among the boys, the diabolical clown and the Joker – full body – are classic proposals that continue to rage on Halloween night.
Another of the costumes that are worn on Halloween, imported from the Mexican Day of the Dead, is that of Catrina -‘the calavera garbancera’-, which represents the goddess Mictecacíhuatl, mistress of the land of the dead. Get more lifestyle updates at impelreport
