Halloween biggest time of the year for Ultimate Party in Hattiesburg

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

While it may be someone's birthday every day, Ultimate Party in Hattiesburg definitely doesn't see as many customers as they do during Halloween.

"There's some other stores in town that sell things, but I think we got most of the business this year," said Ultimate Party employee Eddie Demelia. "I don't think it was this busy last year."

Aside from the Disney characters, this year's popular costume is one of which Ultimate Party has never had in store before.

"There called morph suits, it's basically just a solid colored jumpsuit that goes all over you from head to toe," said Demelia. "There flying out of here, everybody seems to like them."

Being their biggest time of the year, not only does Ultimate Party sell costumes, but the also wear them.

"We usually dress up," said Ultimate Party employee Jennifer Widen. "It promotes costumes and sometimes we end up selling them right off our bodies."

With only a few days away from Halloween, Ultimate Party still has plenty of costumes to choose from.
