Although a few adults got in on the action, superheros were biggest for kids in 2011.

Most children's superhero Halloween costumes were store bought, but some kids still found creative ways to make Spiderman, Superman and Batman costumes from items found at resale and craft stores. Unlike previous years, however, 2011 saw a number of girls wearing male superhero costumes. For example, a number of girls created costumes that invoked a female version of their favorite male superheros. This years trick-or-treaters included a number of Iron Girls and Spider Women.

The addictive cellphone game Angry Birds apparently made it out of the tiny screen in 2011. Adults and kids alike dressed up as the game's colorful, flightless birds. This year's Halloween celebrators bought Angry Birds costumes or masks or made them out of fabric or cardboard and paper machet. The birds' bright colors and silly expressions made the costumes easily recognizable and humorous. For many parents, the angry birds costume was an excellent alternative to the violent, bloody or scary costumes their kids often request. Since the game is still one of the world's most popular, kids didn't reject the notion of wearing this nonviolent costume the way they would resist costumes they might see as babyish, like cowboys or fairies.
