It looks like princesses are making a comeback…at least when it comes to Halloween costumes for 2018. According to new research from the National Retail Federation, the top costumes for kids this year are a bit different than those in 2017, with Princesses regaining the top spot (over Superheroes).

Meanwhile, for adults, a Witch costume is still tops, while Vampire get-ups on are on the rise (jumping four spots to #2). Pet costumes held somewhat steady, with Pumpkin and Hot Dog staying put at the #1 and #2 ranks.
