And the hottest Halloween trend is…

What will you be dressing up as tonight? Last year, everyone was riffing off of the Psy phenomenon and wore suits. This year, it was looking like Miley Cyrus twerking costumes were going to take the lead, but wait! We were saved by Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis, whose video for “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)“, has driven a huge trend in fox costumes for Halloween. According to a report on NPR, costume suppliers could simply not keep up with the demand for furry fox outfits. So if you want to be a fox tonight, hopefully you have an old “Fantastic Mr. Fox” costume in your closet. Otherwise, you might be out of luck. Happy Halloween!

Be sure to check out the GiftRap blog we did on great ideas for last-minute costumes:
