Halloween is almost here!

The spookiest day of the year is right around the corner, meaning most people have already chosen their costumes or are in the process of thinking of a creative and scary outfit to wear.

However, if you need a bit of help deciding what to dress up as this year, why not take some inspiration from what others are searching for?

As it turns out, Google's 10 most searched Halloween costumes of September 2018 are a nice mix of current references to pop culture and old standby costumes that never disappoint. Take a look at the list below:

10. Princess
9. Rabbit
8. Pirate
7. Superhero
6. Harley Quinn
5. Witch
4. Dinosaur
3. Unicorn

Though costumes such as a princess, rabbit, pirate, superhero, witch and dinosaur are nothing new, the popularity of getups like Harley Quinn, a unicorn, Spider-Man and Fortnite are a bit more grounded in what has been trending in recent years.

Harley Quinn is, of course the Suicide Squad character that was portrayed by Margot Robbie in the 2016 movie, whereas Spider-Man, despite appearing in several films over the last few years, has likely remained a popular costume thanks to Tom Holland's turn as the hero in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

And even though mythical unicorns have been fascinating for years, the creatures are making a comeback thanks to their colorful manes, which are tailor-made for Instagram.
