Albany - In just over 3 weeks, perfectly normal children will transform into black cape wearing, purple-haired, face-painted scaries. Halloween allows all of us to forget about reality and enjoy some tricks and treats.

Clowns and vampires are popular Halloween costumes year in and year out. But, this year the costume trend is changing. "People are buying wild and bright costumes. They don't want the dark and scary costumes anymore," said Jerry Doyle, of Doyle Wholesale Company.

Hippies, renaissance queens, and pimps are some of the most popular costumes this year. Halloween goers are also paying attention to details.

"Accessories can make a costume. We sell tons of wigs, necklaces, and face paints that can add that final touch to a costume," said Doyle.

Doyle says you don't have to spend a fortune to get your tricks and treats this year. "Parents can buy a hat and maybe some face paint and just get creative."

Halloween is still weeks away, but the candy-packed holiday is already exciting the kids at Deerfield Windsor Lower School. "I want to be a witch," said Marli Collier. "I like scary things."

"I want to be a Power Ranger because they save the world, " said 6 year-old Davis Cowart.

So whether your a kid or a kid at heart, a little creative is all you need to create the perfect Halloween costume. Doyle Costumes also sells fire-proof costumes and glow in the dark paint for children to make sure Halloween remains safe.
