50 States of Halloween: Surprising Searches for Halloween Costumes

The data is in. We’ve analyzed all the searches on HalloweenCostumes.com (that’s us!) and we’re able to project the top costumes of the year. But we also found some surprising searches that stood out from the rest. South Dakota and Wyoming really love their mummies, for example. (Who doesn’t?) And Montana is really into dinosaurs and Princess Peach. (That’s legit.) Keep in mind that these may not be the trending costumes in each state, just searches that were disproportionately higher than the national average. Check out our map of surprising Halloween costume searches below!
