Splashiest costumes for Halloween 2015

Planning to go all out this Halloween? You're not alone.

With box-office heavy hitters from "Star Wars" to "Jurassic Park" serving up inspiration, 2015 is shaping up to be a year of ornate costumes.

"We're seeing a really large uptick in the classic ['Star Wars' costumes] and these price points are typically a little higher because they're so detailed," said Bob Humphrey, chief merchandising officer of BuySeasons, the parent company of BuyCostumes.com.

That's not to say budget-conscious shoppers will need to shell out big bucks to participate. As always, there are plenty of do-it-yourself options, including a take on the latest social media sensation: Pizza Rat.

And with the spooky holiday falling on a Saturday this year, there's a good chance shoppers will stock up on multiple costumes or accessories, which bodes well for spending, Humphrey said.

A recent forecast from the National Retail Federation, however, paints a gloomier picture. The trade group predicts that consumers will spend $6.9 billion this Halloween, compared with a forecast of $7.4 billion last year.
