As the witching hour crept closer Thursday, would-be trick-or-treaters were frantically scouring stores for last-minute costumes and accessories.

At the Spirit Halloween store at 6468 E State Route 69, Prescott Valley, clerk Victoria Madden's cash register steadily kept ringing as people waited in line to purchase a variety of Halloween items such as masks, hats and makeup.

"I have no costume yet and we are getting the basics for their stuff - princess things and zombie things," last-minute shopper April Plowman said as her kids perused the racks. "They are polar opposites."

According to store manager Ryan Carroll, this year's "must-have" costume for adults was a play on the controversial Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke MTV Awards performance. The costume consisted of a version of Cyrus' teddy-bear unitard and Thicke's black-and-white striped suit.

"The costumes sold out online before the company could even ship them to stores," Carroll said. "It was kind of ridiculous."

Military, SWAT and commando theme costumes were the go-to choice for little boys, while girls opted for a quirky mix of zombie brides and zombie prom queens.

"It seemed like the girls really went for zombies or Disney princesses," Carroll said.
