Batman is D.C.’s most popular Halloween costume

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Crystel Sylvester.

Batman is the hero that D.C. needs – at least when it comes to Halloween costumes.

Google’s “Frightgeist” tool, which allows users to search for costume trends based on location, revealed that the masked superhero’s uniform is the most popular get-up in the District.

D.C. trends also mirrored trends across the country – in New York, Batman grabbed the No. 5 spot , while “Superhero” was the number one costume choice (and third in the District).

D.C.’s top five most-common costumes also included “Star Wars” characters, “Suicide Squad” and comic book character Harley Quinn and pirates.
