Every Halloween we all deal with the struggle of finding that perfect Halloween costume.

This year Google has found a way to help us out.

It has a new app dedicated to showing you what costumes are trending locally and nationally.

Nationally a lot of people are buying Star Wars costumes..

But Harley Quinn is the number one costume trending Nationally. This is a character that will be in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad. Some other favorites according to Google are superheroes, pirates, Minnie Mouse, and Minions. 

Here in Eastern Iowa, it seems the trend is a little different..

In Cedar Rapids, police officer costumes are trending.  Near Dubuque and Quad Cities, flamingos and Star Wars are trending...

All this information is on Google's app called Frightgeist. It shows you what costumes are the most searched. 

It also allows you to look up a specific costume and see how searched or common that costume seems to be this year.
