The first Cars movies were a huge hit and there's little reason to doubt the popularity of the movies. When you start with a likable hero that kids and adults alike are drawn to – and combine that with an edge-of-your-seat sport like racing, you have a definite winner ñ and that makes these characters one of 2017's predicted bestsellers for Halloween costumes.
In this latest edition of the beloved franchise, time has moved on and there are many new racers ready to take over. Fan favorite Lightning McQueen is back and he learns early on that things are changing and if he wants to race again, then he's going to need some help.
That's where Cruz Ramirez comes in. This technician has a determination to win and she knows exactly what it's going to take to get McQueen there. Kids love the idea of dressing up like their favorite characters from the movies as well as some of the latest newcomer characters.
One of the bestselling costumes features the hero from the Cars franchise – and that's based on Lighting McQueen. Any child can be the fastest trick or treater on the block with one of the Lightning McQueen costumes.
This costume is a jumpsuit and may or may not have the upper portion of the suit padded to resemble muscles across the chest and arms. Some of the costumes will also come with a racing hat – but not all of them will.
Though you'll see some of the costumes shown with a headset, these are usually accessories that you have to buy separately. Some of these costumes aren't jumpsuits at all and instead just consist of a shirt or hoodie as the costume.
These are usually for toddlers. Another cute Halloween costume for toddlers is the Lightning McQueen costume that's made to look more 3-D than the others, like the ride-on cars.
One costume that you can find for girls is the Cruz costume. This one comes in varying child sizes and is a yellow jumpsuit and hat. Mater makes a return in Cars 3 and you can also find different versions for a Halloween costume based on his character.
His outfit is a jumpsuit and cap. Though the character is often shown with a tool, this isn't something that comes with the costume. Though the new movie features a host of other characters, there are no costumes available for some of these.
