The Most Popular Costumes in Little Rock 2018

If you haven't picked your costume yet, Google just updated their Frightgeist tool which lets you know the most popular costumes in your area.  If you're looking to stand out, you might want to avoid the five most popular costumes in Little Rock, as seen below.



These costumes are for all age groups combined, though I do have a breakdown at the bottom of the list.  You can find out what the most popular costume for your kids, your pets and yourself are.  It's surprising that political costumes didn't rank higher (but for adults, they still rank pretty high).

Google Frightgeist uses search information to find out which ones will be the most popular.  These are actually just the most widely searched costumes.

1

Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs are the most popular costume for Little Rock and the fourth most popular costume nationwide.  You'll probably see a lot of those inflatable dinosaur costumes.  They have a few new ones this year.  You might see some raptors from Jurassic World.  The costume is at all-time high this year.  The inflatable costumes make for tough walking and trick-or-treating, but you sure do look cool!
2

Fortnite

Fortnite took the world by storm this year and that's reflected in its number 2 position here.  It's the number one costume nationwide.  In general, video games make up 4% of all costume searches.  All sexes and ages are dressing as Fortnite characters this year, because all sexes and ages play the game.  A plus for kids is that the costumes I have seen seem pretty easy to maneuver in.
3

Batman

This year, Batman actually ranks above Harley Quinn in the local rankings.  Harley is usually ahead of the caped crusader.  Batman ranks 20 nationwide (Harley is still 6 nationwide).   That being said, Batman is pretty popular in both sexes and all ages.  It's even a popular pet costume. Comic book characters are pretty popular, making 11% of all costume searches.
4

Unicorn

Unicorns are universally popular and rank 4 locally this year (they are #3 nationwide).  Unicorns have fun colors and lots of glitter. Who wouldn't want to be one?  Unicorns rank from risque bikini top costumes to cumbersome onesies and everything in between.
5

Harley Quinn

Even though Batman finally beat Harley in something, she still makes the list.  Harley is the fifth most popular costume in Little Rock, the third nationwide.  Harley is the female version and sidekick to the Joker.  She has his same psychotic joie de vivre.  There are more risque Harley Quinn costumes for adults and kid's versions.
