Sales of Halloween accessories are soaring at Ace Fancy Dress, one of the UK’s largest providers of fancy dress costumes .
The company has revealed that sales of masks, wigs, face paints, vampire fangs and costume accessories are up 13 per cent on last year, with many items already sold out.
Managing director Toby Spoerer said themed accessories are proving a big hit with customers due to the popularity of the Twilight films and the forthcoming new Scream movie.
He said: “Based on last year, we were hoping for good sales of our Halloween related accessories but were not expecting an increase in sales of 13 per cent.”
“Having spoken with customers we’re finding that recently released films such as Twilight and Fright Night are becoming the set themes for Halloween costume parties this year and we think this is one of the main reasons why our accessories are selling so well.”
“We have made a real effort to improve our range of accessories this year including décor and it appears to be paying dividends”.
Ace Fancy Dress is predicting positive sales of new lines including their highly anticipated new range of Morphsuits, which it expects to among the best selling Halloween outfits for adults this season.
“We get inundated with phone calls from customers wanting Morphsuits and we haven’t been able to get them into stock quick enough,” Spoerer said.
“Now that we have all the styles and sizes available we can’t wait to see this new line flourish.”
