Breaking Bad, Miley Cyrus & Duck Dynasty Most Searched Halloween Costumes Of 2013

In a year where television dramas have kept getting better and better, and viral videos are the fastest way of getting seen by millions, there's little wonder that Breaking Bad, Miley Cyrus, Game of Thrones' Daenerys and Duck Dynasty are some of the most searched-for outfits of 2013.

Planning On Twerking For Treats?

Halloween has grown from a modest family holiday into a massive, heavily marketed, money-making medley for many companies and being seen wearing a clever or cutting edge costume is top priority for the millions who are planning to attend a party. Though rooted in the tradition of witches, werewolves and demons, Halloween costumes don't even necessarily have to be scary any more, meaning any pop star or TV character can be impersonated to impress friends and notch up 'likes' on Facebook photo albums.

They'll Give You Sweets Just To Get You To Stop Playing That Song.

Americans will spend $2.6 billion on Halloween costumes this season, according to data released this week by the National Retail Federation, via Market Watch. Though that huge figure is down on last year's, party makers are expected to fork out $1 billion on children's costumes, $1.2 billion for adult costumes and $330 million on pet costumes.

Witches, Batman, vampires, zombies and pirates will still dominate but people are looking for novel ways to celebrate this Halloween by giving a nod to the year's most prominent pop culture. Breaking Bad's hazmat-suited meth dealers Walter and Jesse are expected to be pretty ubiquitous this year, alongside imitations of pop star Miley Cyrus' notorious MTV VMAs disposable bear bodice in which she twerked.

Expect To See Plenty Of 'Meth Dealer' Outfits Popping Up In Shops.

Riding on this month's big hitting 'What Does The Fox Say' by Norwegian comedians Ylvis, plenty of Halloween party animals are set to rock up in fox outfits, with the term shooting up the popularity list since the bizarre song garnered over 100 million YouTube views.

Films will always take precedence when planning a killer Halloween outfit; whether it's a Freddy or a Jason, or a Princess Leia or a Chewbacca, this year we see Despicable Me's chipper yellow cyclopic Minions snatch the top spot of the most sought-after costumes whilst 'Gatsby dresses' are being searched for after the success of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

Daft Punk
Perhaps Daft Punk Will Attend A Halloween Party As Themselves...

Equally, nerdy costumes will continue to be big hits with Minecraft proving a popular choice for many.

"Costumes related to TV shows are more popular than ever," says Mark Bietz, the vice president of marketing for HalloweenCostumes.com as reality TV show Duck Dynasty about a family that makes products for duck hunters slots into the top 10.
