2015's most popular Halloween costumes, according to Google
Harley Quinn tops list of most searched costume ideas
If what people are searching for online is any indication (and it almost always is) you can expect to see a lot of Harley Quinn in Canada on Saturday night.
Data provided to CBC News by Google Canada shows that Quinn, the lovesick DC Comics super villain, has been inspiring more costume queries among Canadians in recent days than anyone or anything else.
Set to appear as the Joker's pigtailed girlfriend/sidekick in 2016's Suicide Squad, Quinn also currently tops Google's "most searched for costumes" list in the U.S.
If there are any left in stores, that is.
According to Google, 50 per cent of all Halloween costume and decoration searches in Canada happen within five days of Oct. 31.
So, if you want to dress up like Black Widow or the Joker yourself this year, you should probably act fast (or get to DIYing) because the mad rush is on.
Here's the complete list of Canada's most-searched costumes for 2015, courtesy of Google:
- Harley Quinn
- Paw Patrol
- Cruella Deville
- Mad Max
- Star Wars
- The Purge
- Left Shark
- Donald Trump
- Sugar Skull
