Halloween is a few months away yet (boo!), but it is NEVER too early to get a jump on your 2015 Halloween costume. Sure, the classic looks are always fun, but trends matter when it comes to Halloween costumes for kids. Some costumes will be popular for a long time and others might only be popular for a year, but "what's cool NOW" typically weighs heavily on the mind of a young boy or girl.
The big question is: what will be some of the most popular Halloween Costumes of 2015? We’ve compiled a list of ideas that we think will be the most in-demand kid’s costumes this year so you can get a jump start on your Halloween shopping.
