These Are the Most-Searched Halloween Costumes for 2018, According to Google

Google released a report of the most-searched Halloween costumes for 2018—and the results might surprise you.

For many, Halloween preparations are well underway. And if you wanted a temperature check on what costumes are going to be all over your social feeds come October 31, Google has your back, releasing a list of the most-searched Halloween costumes for 2018 (i.e., the ones you shouldn't be surprised to see everywhere).

Surprisingly, Google Trends' findings revealed some fresh, surprising costume ideas that differed from those featured in reports from other platforms, such as Lyst and Pinterest. Still, plenty of longtime favorites managed to break the top 10 (like witch and rabbit), alongside more timely ideas (a princess reference to a recent wedding, perhaps?) You can find and play around with the full Frightgeist list online, with more information on where the costume is trending and how its popularity has changed over time.

Ahead, check out the top 10 most searched Halloween costumes for 2018, according to Google Trends. And for the procrastinators who haven't yet started planning what they're going to dress up as this year…there's always Instagram.

Royal fever is at an all-time high, it seems. And with two fairy-tale weddings this year alone, it might not come as a surprise that princesses are top-of-mind when it comes to Halloween dress-up.
