Can’t decide on a Halloween costume? Google’s “Frightgeist” may be able to help.

The tech giant says more than 3 billion searches happen on Google each day. The site compiled a list of the top 500 costumes based on searches. It even reveals which costumes are most popular in a given region.

For example, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the most popular costume in the greater Sacramento region, followed by Star Wars, the Joker, Minnie Mouse and Harley Quinn (the Joker’s girlfriend).

The Ninja Turtles rank 11th nationally, so it’s a good chance you’ll see at least a few on Halloween. Harley Quinn ranks first.

Google also says Sarah Sanderson, from the Disney cult hit “Hocus Pocus,” is unusually popular in the Sacramento area.
