Hollywood’s hottest Halloween costumes

Hollywood’s hottest costumes - Transformers
By Deborah Netburn, Times Staff Writer

Whoppers, Reese’s Pieces and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are aplenty at the office. You know what that means? Halloween is just around the corner! Time to think about pumpkins, waistlines, and costumes!

Each Halloween, it’s a blast predicting which pop culture icons will show up trick-or- treating at the front door, or drinking some potent “witches brew” at a friend’s party. This year we consulted friends, colleagues and costume shop owners to bring you the 411 on which characters will be among the most popular this year.

(Characters are arranged in no particular order).


Expect to see a parade of little boys on your doorstep holding those plastic pumpkins behind an Optimus Prime mask. At Hollywood Toys & Costumes, a kid’s deluxe Transformers get-up costs $39.99 for a body suit with an ink print design, a half-cover plastic helmet, a breast plate, and a muffler for the arm.
