FancyDressShack.co.uk Announce The Popularity Of Zombies As A Theme For 2012 Halloween Costumes
FancyDressshack.co.uk, UK online retailer of fancy dress today announced how popular zombies have become as a theme for Halloween 2012.
Leicester (I-Newswire) September 27, 2012 - FancyDressShack.co.uk an online fancy dress retailer based in the UK today announced the popularity of zombies as a theme for Halloween costumes this year.
Zombies are a concept of monsters that are dead humans, brought back to life through an evil means, that now feast on the flesh of the living. The concept of zombies became incredibly popular in 2011 with many zombie walks taking place around the UK, and no less than 26 zombie movies being released, as recorded by IMDB.
During 2012 many people have kept the zombie theme alive by organising events based around them. One such event was the ‘Run For Your Lives’ 5k obstacle course. This event saw participants as either zombies or living runners. The zombie participants were trying to successfully take all of the ‘health flags’ from each living runner, and the runners were trying to avoid the zombies and obstacles along the way through speed and cunning.
2012 has not seen the same level of enthusiasm from zombie fans, however there are many zombie related releases occurring around October 31st, which is predicted to increase the popularity of these monsters once more in time for Halloween.
Two major zombie related releases are the new Resident Evil movie and game. The new film, Resident Evil Retribution, is the fourth in the series and has many fans excited about the premiere. The new game, Resident Evil 6 has had a huge marketing campaign and is well-known and highly anticipated in the gaming community.
Kelly Woods, Customer Service Manager for FancyDressShack.co.uk commented, “We’ve had a lot of people on the phone and online buying zombie costumes early so that they have them for Halloween. When we asked our customers why they were buying these costumes in particular they told us it was because of the new Resident Evil movie, and the zombies featured in it, that made them want to be a zombie this year.”
It is predicted that the theme of zombies will continue to grow as more event organisers involve them as a theme in their events and more movies and games are based around them. FancyDressShack.co.uk is a UK based online retailer of fancy dress costumes. They have a wide range of cheap Halloween costumes including zombie costumes, ranging from simple outfits to full undead cowboy costumes.
