With Halloween rapidly approaching, Google has revealed the halloween costume ideas that have been searched for most frequently. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the list is pop-culture heavy, with films and series including IT: Chapter 2, Stranger Things and Spider-Man all featuring near the top.
The IT character of Pennywise has been named the most-searched solo costume for Halloween 2019, followed by a standard witch outfit in second and Spider-Man in third. Elsewhere, Chris Hemsworth’s “Fat Thor” from Avengers: Endgame has seen searches rise by 4,600% while Stranger Things‘ Demogorgon has seen a surge of 300% in searches and the “Scoops Ahoy” outfit has also proved popular.
The most popular search for a couple’s costume is Lilo and Stitch, with Mario and Luigi and Rick and Morty also both appearing in the top ten. Google also reports that Descendants is top of its group-related searches, sitting above Fortnite in second with Stranger Things, Toy Story and Star Wars all ranking inside the ten most-searched group costumes.
