This is what people are wearing for Halloween this year
Google search statistics prove everyone is going to look weird as hell
Another year, another struggle to decide what to wear for Halloween. You've done sexy nurse every year since 2010, and people are starting to notice. There's plenty of outfits that you should definitely steer clear from, especially if you have any respect for yourself, and there's outfits that are just outright offensive – so keep those out of your list of Halloween costume ideas 2018. But what are the outfits people are wearing?
Here's exactly what people are going to be dressing up as for Halloween this year – based on Google Trends data and social media.
Alan Carr as Gemma Collins
There's been a recent surge for people Google searching for Alan Carr related Halloween costumes.
That might be because people want to dress up as him, or more likely people want to recreate his classic 2017 outfit as the iconic Gemma Collins.

Party City is selling the Womens Ghosted Costume for £18.99.
Phillip Schofield as Game of Thrones
And today in people-will-literally-buy-anything, we have an "influencer" Halloween costume. Yep, if you haven't heard already, Urban Outfitters is selling an "Influencer Halloween Costume Set" – just in case you were short of ideas.
It's basically a Yeezy Season 6-esque top and leggings, and it definitely isn't scary.
To complete the look it says in the small print the sunglasses, shoes and platinum blonde wig are sold separately – for anyone wanting to go all out.

This trend will never die. Girls recycle their sexy halloween costumes for years, or splash some blood on any sexy outfit they have and job done.
Sexy nun and sexy the purge seem like a popular choice this year.
There's been a 140 per cent surge in searches for sexy nun halloween costumes, probably because of the film – no trigger warnings necessary.
Food and drink
These girls on Twitter decided to go against the "sexy" halloween trend and instead opt for dressing as a full english.

Other people will definitely follow suit.
David Walliams as Kim Jong-un or Donald Trump
A breakout search on Google Trends is for "David Walliams halloween costume".
Again probably not to dress as the man himself, but because he's known for his controversial costumes.
His Kim Jong-un outfit last year faced backlash, and he's previously done a pretty good Donald Trump look.
Post Malone in relation to Halloween costumes is another breakout search query on Google. After a tweet went viral last year of a girl completely nailing dressing up as him, a lot of people are going to recreate.

It's a viral meme trend, and a jokes idea for a couple's costume.
Jason Derulo as Night King
There's been a 4,350 percent surge in searches for Jason Derulo costumes.
Surprisingly this isn't because people want to dress up as him, but instead because he recreated Game of Thrones last year too.

There's been a huge surge in searches for Powerpuff girl costumes – so groups of three you are in luck!!
Easy, cute and fun.
If Twitter is anything to go by, a lot of people are going to be dressing up as Riverdale characters.
some underused halloween costume ideas (my opinion):
– toni topaz (riverdale)
– veronica lodge (riverdale)
– black hood (riverdale)
– chanel (scream queens)
– any ahs character tbh
(i’ll keep adding)

And there are plenty of ways to recreate the looks of the characters, splash some blood on their classic cheerleader outfits and yep, you're a dead Veronica Lodge.
There's always one person who tries to be as offensive as possible. And according to Google Trends data, this year they'll be dressed as either Anne Frank, Madeline McCann or Oscar Pistorius. Don't be that guy.
