Halloween

AKUncategorized

Halloween is just around the corner. Some live for this holiday, while others don’t really care. Regardless of where you stand, Google has some fun data with regards to this holiday.

Google’s 2016 Frightgeist report is interesting to say the least. It’s a detailed report of the most-searched Halloween costumes of the year, both across the country and locally. And while you’d assume Ken Bone, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton would top the list, they didn’t even make the top 50.

Unsurprisingly, Harley Quinn and the Joker, two characters from this year’s Suicide Squad, take the number one and two spots, respectively. Star Wars costumes come in at number eight. And Pikachu, thanks in large part to the popularity of Pokémon Go, landed at 12.

But if you’re like us, and don’t want to dress the same as everybody else, there’s still time to stand out. Take a look at the 50 most Googled Halloween costumes below, and for a closer look at how they made the cut with the Frightgeist report.

In describing their data and how they compiled these lists, the FrightGeist website explains, “Every year, trillions of searches take place on Google, and Google Trends gives us an unparalleled look at what the world is searching for. With FrightGeist, we went on a hunt to find the most popular costumes.”

Specifically, FrightGeist shows the top 500 most popular costumes in the United States. You also have the option to download the data from Github if you really want to dig into the numbers. Good luck with your costume and Happy Halloween!
