A local costume shop is helping people find the right outfit and mask to wear on Halloween and some of the requests may surprise you. Fantasy Frocks in Bakersfield has been in business for more than thirty years and every Halloween the demand changes. This year, owners are getting more people who are interested in wearing masks that resemble President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. They blame the demand on the current election year. Owners also have masks of former President Bill Clinton and Queen Elizabeth.
“We recognize its easy to sit at home in the middle of the night and order off the internet but we really appreciate the people who come year after year to our building to buy their costumes,” said owner, Jennife Keller.
Other popular costumes this year include Captain America and Batman.
