No matter what kids choose to be for Halloween, parents are likely to be scared by the price for that costume.
According to the National Retail Federation Spider-Man is this year's most popular costume, followed by princess, witch, vampire and monster.
However, gone are the days when a drugstore mask and some old clothes would do. Analysts say parents are more time-strapped than ever before so it's easier to just buy one.
And that'll cost them. Prices for a Spider-Man costume range from $17 at K-Mart to up to $70 at specialty stores. And adult costumes cost even more.
Halloween is the sixth-largest spending holiday, with an estimated three billion dollars to be spent this year.
