Minnesota’s Most Popular Halloween Costumes for 2023
Halloween is just two weeks away! If you're still struggling to find the perfect costume, I've got your back. Thanks to Google search trends, I have the most Googled Halloween costumes in Minnesota for 2023. I also have the most Googled costumes in Iowa and Wisconsin, too.
I'd say some of the easiest costumes you could pull off last minute would include a witch, a cat or dog, any professional athlete (especially if you own a jersey), or a scarecrow.
Another easy one that's quite clever is you could be a ceiling fan. You wear pretty much whatever clothes you want, you carry around pom poms, and you wear a sign that says "Go Fan!". Get it?
None of those are the most Googled costumes in Minnesota, Iowa, or Wisconsin, though.
I'm using a site called Frightgeist which analyzes Google searches in highly populated areas in each state to determine the most searched costume in each area. Here's what they found.

In Wisconsin, it's broken down into 5 different highly populated areas. You've got the Wausau-Rhinelander area, La Crosse-Eau Claire area, Green Bay-Appleton area, Madison area, and Milwaukee area. In every. Single. One of them. The most Googled Halloween costume is Barbie.
You may start to see a trend here really quickly.
