Still looking for a Halloween costume? Stores like HalloweenMart, located near Decatur Boulevard and Interstate 215, have plenty of options. The most popular ones are two people you’ve seen a lot of lately.

“We have hundreds and hundreds of costumers,” HalloweenMart manager Jason Edrick said. “We are busy now - very, very busy.”

Those endless options kept 8-year-old Jatniel Dauvila busy searching for the perfect Halloween getup.

“I’m going to a party,” he said, thumbing through an assortment of superhero costumes.

Jatniel finally settled on a costume.

“I’m going to be (Darth) Vader!” he said. “The (best) thing is that when it’s Halloween and I have school I can wear my costume.”

Unlike Jatniel, Edrick said most people are opting for something a bit more political.

“Trump and Clinton masks are going like crazy! Donald Trump has the moving mouth, and they keep flying off the shelves. However, we seem to be selling more Clinton ones, so we’ll see,” he said.

It’s not just Trump and Clinton you’ll be seeing this Hallows’ Eve. Clowns are a big trend. Edrick said that was expected with all the recent hoopla.

“Anything that’s happening nationally - any events, movies - those are always the big trends,” he said.

Edrick said the most off-the-wall costume in his store is an inflatable T. rex.

“I’m sure you’ve seen it; it’s all over YouTube,” he said.

For the kids, the best part is the sweets.

“I just like getting candy,” a boy named Gavin said.

“I just love Halloween so much,” Jatniel said. “You get to trick-or-treat and walk around and exercise while you’re walking around!”
