Halloween costumes for both kids and adults are a big money-maker. Adults spent about $512 million on creepy or creative costumes last year, according to Crain's Chicago Business.
That's $100 million more than parents shelled out for their children's costumes, Crain's reports.

Wondering what your community spent on costumes for adults? Patch pulled what area towns spent from Crain's interactive map:
|Community||Spending in 2011|
*Crain's broke down spending by zip code. This made for a not-so-perfect process in figuring out how each community spent, especially for neighborhoods in Chicago. Figures given above reflect Crain's map and our best approximation: Beverly-Mt. Greenwood (60643 & 60655), Evergreen Park (60805), Oak Lawn (60453), Palos Heights (60463), Palos Hills (60465) and Palos Park (60464)
