Frozen, Spiderman 2 among top costumes locally


CHEEKTOWAGA, NY - There are less than two weeks now until Halloween, which means all of the most popular costumes are selling out fast.

On Saturday, we visited Spirit Halloween in Cheektowaga, a seasonal store that pops up all around Western New York this time of year. It's got every kind of prop, decoration, and animated electronic display you could imagine ... including the kind that pop out at you and make you jump.

But it's the costumes that bring the younger crowd in, and as you might expect, the year's biggest TV shows and movies have a lot to do with what the kids want to be.

After Frozen, Spirit Halloween says The Amazing Spiderman 2 is popular for boys. For adults, it's the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones costumes that are moving the fastest.
