Top Halloween Costumes for 2011

Now that October has arrived and Halloween is just a few weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what costume to wear this year. The International Business Times put together a list of what it believes the top 10 Halloween costumes will be this year, guided by input from leading industry sources:

  1. Zombie — IBT cited an industry leader saying zombies are the new vampires, in part because of the hit AMC cable TV show The Walking Dead.
  2. Captain America — Star of a summer blockbuster movie this year.
  3. Don Draper — From AMC’s hit show Mad Men
  4. Charlie Sheen — No explanation needed after Sheen’s crazy meltdown of a year.
  5. Frankie Stein — From Mattel’s Monster High franchise.
  6. Thor — The star of another summer blockbuster movie this year.
  7. Arnold Schwarzenegger— The former California governor left office and fell into a scandal involving him fathering a now 13-year-old boy with the family’s maid.
  8. Anthony Weiner— Weiner’s very bad year involved him stepping down from office after tweeting sexual photos and messages to women who weren’t his wife — and having a sex scandal while carrying that unfortunate last name.
  9. Ron Paul— The perennial GOP presidential candidate has helped make his libertarian ideas that once were viewed as loopy gain popularity.
  10. Amy Winehouse — Winehouse is gone, but homage can be paid on Halloween, including with a wig based on her fabulous beehive hairdo.
