If you’re headed to a Halloween party this year, you probably want your costume to be original. That’s where Google comes in to help us all out this year, by providing information on their most-searched costumes.
While kids usually go for the superhero or princess costumes, adults often try to mirror pop culture. With comic book culture increasingly becoming part of our popular culture, the grown-ups are now dressing more like the kids.
Here’s a look at the top 10 searched costumes so far this year nationally, so you don’t end up standing by the punch bowl with four other unicorns. (You can also search for your local area!)
1. Harley Quinn
Why it’s so popular: The anticipation of the Suicide Squad film has brought this character back to the forefront for a lot of people and created some new fans.
2. Star Wars
Why it’s so popular: Already breaking records for ticket sales and online trailer views, the seventh Star Wars film is breathing more life into an obsession that’s never really died down.
Why it’s so popular: Superheroes are taking over the box office right now, so there’s a lot to choose from. That’s probably got people searching generally, so they can find the right fit for them.
Why it’s so popular: Although Pirates of the Caribbean has kind of overstayed its welcome for most fans of the film franchise, recent TV shows like Black Sails and Crossbones are helping to keep the pirate love alive.
Why it’s so popular: Next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie and the success of Fox’s Gotham TV series, Bruce Wayne is back.
6. Minnie Mouse
Why it’s so popular: Disney never goes out of style.
Why it’s so popular: Witches are always one of the most-worn costumes on Halloween. If you’re looking to switch it up, go as one of the witches from The Craft, aka the coolest witches ever.
Why it’s so popular: The minions movie just came out and everyone is still in love with these kooky characters. Plus, they make great group costumes.
Why it’s so popular: The Suicide Squad trailer made the Joker a topic of conversation again. With Jared Leto sure to deliver a stellar performance, following an unforgettable performance by Heath Ledger in 2008’s The Dark Night, this will probably be higher on the list next year.
10. Wonder Woman
Why it’s so popular: When Dawn of Justice comes out next year, Gal Gadot is poised to become the most notable Wonder Woman since Lynda Carter. That’s sure to get people excited enough to strap on some boots and grab their Lasso of Truth.
