Nothing can kill a good Halloween sugar-high like running into someone with the same costume as you. But don’t worry folks, we’ve got you covered.
Influenster surveyed over 40,000 people to discover the most popular Halloween costumes for each state, so you will never have to risk being one of ten Cinderellas at the office party ever again.
This Halloween you can use the following statistics to shine bright like a jack-o-lantern with a totally unique costume!
We were kind of upset that Pizza Rat didn’t make the cut, but here are the top five Halloween costume trends this year in the USA:
1. Disney Princesses
Disney Princesses reign as the top Halloween costume choice across America. Elsas across New Hampshire and North Carolina will be yelling their best “Let It Go” impressions, Indiana and New York love Snow White, Ohio and West Virginia chose the classic Cinderella, and Florida and Georgia both went with Pocahontas.
The skeleton costume is a classic and never fails to be extremely creepy. Virginia and Texas both chose “simple skulls” as their favorite costume, while New Mexico and Arizona went with “sugar skulls” (a decorative or edible skull made from sugar or clay typically used in the Mexican celebration of El Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead.
3. Female Superheroes
Strong super women were picked by several states as being their favorite Halloween costume. These ladies can kick some serious butt. Wyoming and Michigan chose Cat Woman (meow), while Delaware and New Hampshire went with classic Wonder Woman.
4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
People cannot get enough nostalgia from this 80’s comic book and 90’s cartoon (or more recent movie with Megan Fox and Johnny Knoxville). Rhode Island and Washington have their hearts set on being America’s favorite pizza-loving, crime-fighting, muscle-bound reptiles. Cowabunga!
Mermaids have the best of both worlds. They are amazing swimmers, have really nice hair, and are most likely besties with a dolphin or a shark. Pennsylvania and Minnesota chose mermaids as their favorite Halloween costume because they think half fish/half women are pretty cool too. Oh and don’t let your pets feel left out of the Halloween festivities. Your puppy may be the perfect Ariel!
