Americans spent $512.1 million dollars on adult Halloween costumes last year. Yes, you read that correctly.
That number comes from Crain's Chicago Business and their recently released map showing spending on adult costumes for Halloween in 2011. It's more than 100 million more than was spent on kid's costumes last year.
It seems like the adults are getting into Halloween even more from the kids.
Evanstonians spent a total of $232,239 last year, according to Crain's. In contrast, neighboring Skokie spent a total of $144,413, while Wilmette residents spent $127,028 altogether.
