Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - Halloween is creeping up and the rush is on to find the perfect costume.

Steve Lerum manages the Spirit Halloween store in Kalispell a one-stop-shop for your Halloween experience.

"Once you get into the month of October and you get frost outside, people get serious about finding the perfect costume," Lerum said. "We have a full-range.  Adult and kids costumes, makeup, and hats."

The store offers a full-range of adult and kids costumes, so what have been some the most popular.

"In the kid's department superheroes is always a big seller, but also some of the Disney themes like Beauty and the Beast and Frozen.  For adults there is Hocus Pocus, a Nightmare Before Christmas and the Steampunk is very popular this year."

The goggles I'm wearing are Steampunk, and the genre has proven the most popular this year with the most sales.

Along with the excitement of picking out a costume comes come visibility hazards so make sure your costume is visible in the dark.

"Some of the things you want to make sure with kids is that they avoid trick-or-treating alone, that they are always in groups or with a trusted adult and the other thing you want to make sure is that they're visible," said Hillary Hanson with Flathead County Health Department. "You want to have reflective tape on costumes, make sure they have a flashlight, anything that makes them visible to those drivers out there."
