As Halloween quickly approaches, we’ve all been frantically trying to put together the perfect costume. You can bust out your newly acquired makeup skills, but if you’re looking to be original and stick out from the crowd, then you might want to stay away from 2019’s popular costume picks for this year.
Thanks to the data collected by Google Frightgeist, you can see the most popular nationally and locally. If you look at the national results, “It,” “Witch,” “Spider-Man,” “Dinosaur” and “Descendants” are the top five searches. Fortnite, Child’s Play, Stranger Things, Suicide Squad and more also inspire some of the most popular costumes.
You can also allow Google to use your location to view the “local” results based on your city. The site has a map that shows the top costumes near major U.S. cities. You can hover over many different cities to see what costume is the No. 1 trending. If you click on a result, you can review the overall popularity of the costume and its national rank.
You can also view the trend over time and other cities that are searching for the same costume. It also breaks down the costume popularity by type. For example, “film character” costumes make up 20% of the total searches on Google.
FrightGeist also has a “Costume Wizard” function that factors in things like uniqueness, style, spookiness to figure out the perfect costume for you. You can use Google’s FrightGeist application here
