H-F Spent $72,000 on Adult Halloween Costumes Last Year

Homewood and Flossmoor households are fairly modest spenders compared to average when it comes to adult Halloween costumes.

American adults spent $512.1 million on adult Halloween costumes in 2011, according to Crain's Chicago Business. That's $100 million more than was spent on child costumes last year. 

Homewood households spent $42,140 on costumes compared to Flossmoor's $29,906.00. That breaks down to $2.17 per capita for Homewood and $3.15 for Flossmoor. Number-wise, Flossmoor adults are 1.45 times more into the Halloween spirit (materially, at least) than Homewood. In the event you feel guilty spending money on Halloween costumes, consider Barrington, where a population of $10,371 spends $231,836, or $22.35 per capita.

I don't believe in spending money on costumes. I just wear my everyday house-clothes. Who doesn't love a Dr. Frank N. Furter at a party?
