The Most Expensive Halloween Costumes of 2012

  • Someone out there with an unlimited budget and a passion for everybody's favorite toy, should shop Veniamin's human Slinky. For a whopping $1,000,000, you can relive your childhood by wearing a life-size version of this famous toy. As the most expensive Halloween costume that we found, this slinky doesn't appear particularly glamorous or high-end. Wonder if the price has to do with all of the pleats, volume, or colors...

  • If you're a die hard Batman fan, we have just the costume for you. For a mere $900, this Collector's Edition Adult Batman Costume from DC Comics can be yours. Although we support shelling out the big bucks for the sake of All Hallow's Eve, we can't help but think you could throw on a onesie and a black sheet on your back and look just as convincing. 

  • For all of you die-hard "Star Wars" fans out there, you can get this replica Storm Trooper costume for around $1,500. Sorry to break it to you, though: you're not going to be the only one in a "Star Wars" costume out on Halloween (though, maybe you can make some Trekkie friends).

  • For $2,000, you can buy a historical Victorian wedding gown. Be warned, though: the hoop skirt is not included, so it may fall flat.

  • Kay Bee Toys has released this genuine Mr. KB Costume, which is selling for $5,000. We're just hoping that you can put your arms down in this suit.

  • If bird costumes are more your thing, you can look like a genuine giant swan for $1,300. But where do you breathe out of?

  • All of you that dream of having Superman muscles, never fear! Buy this $1,000 collector's costume, and you can fake it. 

  • Gather up three friends, and you can dress up as Las Vegas dancers! Pool together the $6,000 and you're almost getting a bargain..

  • If Van Helsing Verona Vampire Brides are your cup of tea, this one is available for sale for a mere $5,000. Model not included.

  • You can buy your very own authentic Playboy Bunny Costume for $5,000. If a genuine is important to you, you're going to have to fork out the cash.

The Most Expensive Halloween Costumes of 2012


Halloween is a unique holiday that means something different to everyone who celebrates it. When you’re a child, it’s the one day of the year your parents won’t get on you about excessive sugar consumption. When you’re a teenager, it’s a great excuse for a school night rager. And when you’re an adult, it’s either the bane of your existence — or the one night you can escape your humdrum life and wear a crazy costume.
When it comes to your outfit, you can stick to the basics or go all out. With the assumption that we’ll all be doing the latter, we perused the Internet for some seriously high-priced costumes and came up with 10 of the most expensive options out there.
Click through the gallery above for a look at costumes you can snag if you’re ready to drop major coin. (And be warned: Expensive doesn’t mean chic — or original!)
