Yeah I know what you’re thinking, it’s 102 degrees outside, school hasn’t even started and I’m talking about Halloween!

Here’s the way to think about it though – if you want the coolest Superhero costumes for 2012, you need to plan ahead a little. These things are not cheap you know.

I visited an online costume place called buycostumes.com just to get an idea of what the hottest new trends are for the upcoming Halloween season, and as usual Superheros are all the rage.

Prices vary with age and detail of course, for toddlers around $20, up to the really nice adult costumes like the new Batman and Captain America for around $250. If you’re spending that much you are way more into Halloween than I am, but to each his own. Check out a few examples below. I love the baby. What a little cutie!
