SACRAMENTO - Are you going to be Harley Quinn or the Joker for Halloween?

You're not alone.

Google has updated its 'Frightgeist' page for 2016, highlighting the most popular costumes in the nation and giving last-minute planners outfit ideas.

Given the current pop culture landscape, it should come as no surprise that comic book characters are the most popular, according to the Google Trends platform.

Batman villains Harley Quinn and the Joker come in as the most and second-most popular, respectively, in the country.

The recent release of 'Suicide Squad' probably has something to do with it.

'Superhero' is also trending nationally, so you might see quite a few Avengers, members of the Justice League and likely a Spider-Man or a Doctor Strange out trick-or-treating.

Still searching for the perfect costume?

Frightgeist's Costume Wizard asks you how spooky you want to look, how unique the costume should be, whether your prefer classic or modern and if you want a nationally or locally trending ensemble before spitting out a tailored suggestion.

Here's the national Top 5 costumes for 2016:

  1. Harley Quinn
  2. Joker
  3. Superhero (DC, Marvel heroes)
  4. Pirate
  5. Wonder Woman
