PHOENIX -

It's the final weekend before Halloween, which means big crowds at stores and people searching for last minute costumes.

Pop culture is big this year: "Breaking Bad," Lady Ga Ga, "The Great Gatsby" are all big sellers. 

So what if you want something truly unique?  Really unusual?

Expect to see zombies taking over -- "The Walking Dead" is a hot trend this Halloween.

"It'll be pretty intense, probably have a big gash on my throat, probably a bone sticking through on my neck or something," said Mark Chrisler.

Xavier Sabori added, "It's Halloween.  Ya gotta be spooky."

Disney princesses are popular every Halloween, but this season, there's a new character showing skin -- a risqué Rapunzel.

"I'm going as Wonder Woman and I found these fantastic red and white boots," said Anette Bebe.

It's well known that October 31st is the one night women can get away with wearing whatever they want.

"The one night that they can express themselves," said Vanessa Sampson, who chose a sexy Minnie Mouse costume.

"Being conservative most of the time, one day a year, you can get away with it.  Everybody else is and because everybody else is, you can kind of blend in," said Bebe.

Ladies, we've all done sexy, but how about going for funny this year?  How about one of my personal favorites: big foot.  A squirrel costume isn't sexy, but at least it's cuddly and I come bearing food.  And this is about as unsexy as it gets -- a cockroach costume.

I thought I had the best costume until I found this man baby.

"This is gonna be my halloween costume," said Alexis Guzman.
