1. Halloween Costumes
First up we have Halloween costumes. Costumes are a big part of the Halloween holiday, but not only.
Costumes are an actual trend and are a wonderful dropshipping product choice for a lucrative business all year round. That’s due to the popularity of costume parties both for children and adults.
Since anyone can enjoy dressing up, it is critical to have something for everyone. This means selling costumes for women, men, and kids.
Niche costumes have become a popular trend with superhero costumes, group Halloween costumes, couple costumes, period costumes, historical costumes, costumes for pets, and family Halloween costumes are growing in popularity each year.
To assure your store a hefty amount of sales and high profits, dropship Halloween costumes. Here are two well sought-after costumes to have in your dropshipping store for this Halloween season.
Women’s Costume – Cruella de Vil From Cruella
Cruella De Vil is the main antagonist of Disney’s 1961 animated feature film 101 Dalmatians. She is an eccentric, fashion-obsessed heiress who wishes to use the skins of 99 Dalmatian puppies to create a spotted fur coat.
More recently, a live-action feature spin-off starring Emma Stone, the character has gotten back into the spotlight.
We see single products that make up the costume are in demand as well as full complete sets… Single products that sell include her famous black and white hair wig, elbow-high gloves, and pearl necklace.
Complete costume sets are trending too, which include dresses, cloaks, capes, and other accessories.
Men’s Costume – Joe Exotic (Tiger King)
Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, known professionally as Joe Exotic and nicknamed “The Tiger King,” is an American media personality, businessman, and convicted felon who operated the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.
He has been a public figure for years but more recently got a lot of attention tfor his feud with Carole Baskin. Baskin is an American big-cat rights activist and CEO of Big Cat Rescue, a non-profit animal sanctuary near Tampa, Florida.
The two have been rivals for years and gained popularity due to numerous fights, threats, shows, and documentaries revolving around them both.
In short, Joe Exotic is a part of American pop culture now. He became a meme and now a Halloween costume. Since the story is still fresh, it is safe to say for every Joe Exotic costume; there will most likely be a Carole Baskin costume too.

They can be tossed on with a t-shirt and jeans for those that are lazy or be paired with a proper costume as well, making them a favorite year after year.

Last but not least, we have two spectacular options and a bonus item. Fog machines are not necessarily a Halloween item but are widely used for Halloween parties and haunted houses.
We wanted to mention both as they are in high demand for this holiday, and one is more for practical use, while the other doubles as a decoration on its own.
First we have the classic fog machine. You may have seen them before at concerts or clubs as they are often used at big events.
This is a great way to add that extra kick to a party and spice up any setting. Additionally, fog machines come in all price ranges. Have at least a few options from each different price point to appeal to a broader audience.
Furthermore, as you can see from the image above, fog machines are a high-ticket item with quite the profit margin potential.
Halloween Fog Atomizer
The second fog creating device we have is the Halloween fog atomizer. Unlike the first option, which is meant for behind the scenes, this is an actual decoration.
Who doesn’t want to switch out their garden gnome with this supernatural witch potion pot for Halloween?
This is a much cheaper option for some foggy fun, and no additional products are necessary, as it just needs to be plugged in and turned on. Which leads us to our bonus item…
Fog Machine Fluid
Anyone using a fog machine for Halloween will need some fog fluid to go with it. You may get customers that buy both from you, as it can be an excellent up-sell item, or both may be bought separately.
Either way, offering them together in your store will maximize sales.
