For many, Halloween is their favorite holiday of the year, and for others it is not.
Halloween is the ONE day a year that you can dress up as anything you want, not get judged or weird looks. On any other day, it is not as acceptable.
As costumes ideas continue to change from year to year, some remain the same. Such as a hippie, a cat, and even a classic witch.
“This Halloween, I’m dressing up as a black cat, mostly because it is easy! And black is my favorite color. It’s definitely my “go to” costume,” said Catie Valletta.
This year, many are dressing up as characters from their favorite TV shows and movies. Now, there is no way to know exactly what people will dress up as until the actual holiday night, but their search history give us a pretty good idea of what people are leaning towards.
According to Pinterest, these are the top costume searches for 2017:
