Disney's "Frozen" characters and ninja turtles among most popular costumes in the Four States

Updated:
Passing out candy tonight, you may have noticed quite a few Disney's "Frozen" princesses at your door.

The National Retail Federation estimates 2.6 million children purchased costumes based on the film this year.

"I like Frozen a lot, so I wanted to be someone from Frozen," said Audrey Fletcher, 3rd grader.

"Snow glows white on the mount tonight," said Bella Buxton, 2-year-old, quoting lyrics from the film.

Teenage mutant ninja turtles were also a popular pick, as well as Batman.

"I've seen little babies wearing Batman and older people," said Ryanne Cook, Joplin resident.

"He is truly, truly one of my favorite super heroes," said Tanner Allgood, 3rd grader.

As for other popular costume choices, the National Retail Federation estimates about 3.4 million children went as princesses, 3 million as an animal and 2.6 million as Spider-Man.

Another trend this year was to go the homemade route.

"It's countless hours and a lot of fun," said TJ Born, parent.

"I enjoy making them and putting a lot of love and work into them," said Monica Redborn, parent.

Many say trick-or-treating inside Northpark Mall in Joplin provided the perfect alternative to the colder temperatures.

"We didn't want to get the little one out and have her freeze to death," Born said.

"I was so freezing!" said Gabriella Redborn, 4-year-old.

Others spent a lot of time bracing the elements.

"I'm going to try to talk my dad into going three times around on everything," said one trick-or-treater.

Whether inside or out, the children all shared the same mission, to obtain as much candy as possible.

"I love candy a lot," said Oorelei Jones, 6-year-old.

The National Retail Federation estimates about 75 million adults also dressed up for the holiday, with most popular costume choices of a pirate, witch, or Batman.
