Got a chic flapper dress in your wardrobe? Then you're all set for Halloween. Google's stats show that "Great Gatsby" costumes, inspired by this year's blockbuster movie, are among the top 10 costumes for Halloween 2013.
According to Google Shopping's data, the top trending costume searches for this year's holiday are:
- Minion costume
- Breaking Bad costume
- Fox costume
- Duck Dynasty costume
- Miley Cyrus costume
- Minecraft costume
- Daenerys costume
- Batman costume
- Gatsby dress costume
- Daft Punk costume
Hooray for no sexy nurses/cats/policemen?
The data, which reflects searches on Google Shopping, indicate this year is all about the 2013 memes and cult shows. We already assumed we'd see plenty of twerking Mileys and even some Batmans in anticipation of the new movie; but dressing up as the little yellow Minions from "Despicable Me" or the Fox from the "What Does the Fox Say?" video demonstrates an impressive commitment to pop culture, we'd say.
Same goes for "Breaking Bad" costumes. At least Daenerys from "Game Of Thrones" has a look that can be easily recreated with an icy wig; Walter and Jesse from "Breaking Bad," on the other hand, are probably more challenging to imitate accurately in costume form. That would probably explain why people are Googling it so much -- Google notes that searches for "Breaking Bad" costumes are three times higher this year, on the heels of the series finale, than they were last year.
But the easier route, of course, is "The Great Gatsby." Google reports that Gatsby costume searches are trending highest in New York and California, where we bet lots of stylish gals probably own Gatsby-like dresses and accessories anyway.
Which just solved our "what to be for Halloween" problem. Thanks for the idea, Google.
