The Most-Searched Halloween Costume Ideas for 2019, According to Google

Abby Gardner

There are just over three weeks until October 31. Do you know where your Halloween costume is? If you're still not sure what you want to dress up as (or you're waiting until the very last minute to put your look together), perhaps other people's Google searches will give you some Halloween costume ideas.

Google crunched the numbers based on search volume in the U.S. during the month of September to compile the top Halloween costume ideas for 2019. On top of suggesting looks you might want to check out for the spooky-party season, its report also found some interesting (and hilarious) trends—like how White Claw didn't crack the top 10 costumes but is still surging ("White Claw Halloween costume" searches are up 1450%, Google says); or how, if you live in one of 15 states that had IT as its most-searched-for disguise...well, just brace yourself for a Pennywise run-in.

Below, you'll find the top 10 halloween costume ideas for individuals and the top 10 for couples, to guide your wardrobe planning.
