If you’re one of those people who worries about planning a costume and then walking into a party where everyone’s wearing the same thing, Google Frightgeist is here to save the day.
Frightgeist is a real-time interactive map based on trending costume searches across the country. You can explore local trends or examine the most popular national searches. On that note, these are currently the top three costumes to avoid in terms of popularity:
1. Harley Quinn
2. Star Wars
My personal favorite discover was the fact that “Clown” is trending in the state of Maine. I guess Stephen King’s home state likes to show their love.
Theres also a “surprise me” option in the search which may help you find something. I tried and it suggested Captain Marvel. Hmmmmmm.
