The Most Popular Halloween Costumes in Each State, from The Surprising to the Predictable

Like every year before it, the Halloween of 2014 brings its own batch of offensive, weird, and politically incorrect costumes. Luckily, according to a map of the most popular Halloween costumes in each state, it looks as though most people will be avoiding dressing as sexy Ebola nurses in favor of more classic holiday disguises.

SumoCoupon, a website that offers discounts at a variety of stores and shops, has made a map detailing the costumes choices trending in each state. The coupon company analyzed Google search volumes in each state to determine which costumes were most popular across the country…and they found some weird trends. Apparently, lots of people in Washington are itching to dress up as a spider dog, whatever that is.  And the majority of people in three separate states, Minnesota, Connecticut, and Maryland are planning to dress up as…wait for it…bananas.

So what do you think is most popular in your hometown? Could it be classic zombie costumes, which are the most searched get-up in three states? Or maybe your neighbors are more likely to dress up as their favorite film characters, like Katniss Everdeen, whose likeness will be overwhelming four different states across the country this Friday. Check out the full list of the most googled Halloween costumes per state below, and find the map version here.
