The good nerds behind Google Trends have set up a Halloween-specific page with all the Google trends data regarding Halloween costumes they have lying around.
Their one-stop shop data summary page will show you real-time data for what’s couple costumes are trending, what “Star Wars’ costumes are trending and even what dog costumes are trending.
