Here’s something interesting coming out of the folks at Brick Fanatics this morning. Have you ever wanted to wear official LEGO costumes for your Halloween parties and functions? Well that will be happening starting next year. Local costume company, Disguise, has announced last week that they are partnering up with The LEGO Group to produce official Halloween costumes, role play and accessories based on popular LEGO characters. This will be a multi-year deal so you can expect to see LEGO costumes in the next few years in the US, Europe, and Asia. There’s no word on what characters will be included but most likely there will be some from their own IP library like Chima, Ninjago, Friends, and The LEGO Movie. Looking on their website, they already have LEGO Mixels listed. You can expect the official LEGO costumes to be hitting shelves starting in fall 2016.
