It’s that time of year again where celebrity Halloween costumes become popular with everyone looking for the hottest celebrity to dress up like. Regular and online costume stores usually roll out their Halloween line-up a couple months before the holiday. With the continuous rise in reality television stars and sudden interest in music artists, celebrity Halloween costumes will certainly be common this year. So what celebrities are people wearing for Halloween 2011? Because of Jersey Shore, MTV’s most watched show, we will definitely see a lot of “Snooki” and “Pauly D”. Other New Jersey based reality shows like The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Jerseyliscious will probably be common in costumes this year. Constantly rotated and international superstar artists such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry will also be among top celebrity Halloween costumes this year. Even superstar newcomer Nicki Minaj will have plenty of lookalikes this year with the release of her platinum debut album. Besides television and music artists, political figures are also standard for costumes. President Barack Obama and Sarah Palin have been among Halloween costume favorites for the past several years and it certainly won’t change this year. The day Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement, Halloween costume companies were already adding them to the manufacturing order. Couples will certainly be dressed as the royal couple this year as it’s the first Halloween since they’ve been married. Unfortunately, every year there are celebrities who do pass away and their likeness is usually duplicated in high numbers during the following Halloween. Singer-songwriter, Amy Winehouse, will surely be a famous celebrity costume this year since people were already dressing as her shortly after she died. Professional wrestler Randy Savage and legendary actress, Elizabeth Taylor will be among those costumes of celebrities who have recently died. Halloween 2011 will absolutely be a fun year of celebrity costumes and we can only wait to see if they outdo last year.
