🎃   Designed and Built by Qin Bian, Nov 2017
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. This is the one time of year that people can let go of their inhibitions and let their crazy take over. Anyone - young and old, rich and poor - can enjoy dressing up like a villain, superhero, favorite celebrity, cartoon characterm or monster. When we look at the halloween costumes collectively, the popular ones often reflect the significant events or pop culture happened earlier that year. This website explores what is the most popular Halloween costume in each State, and hopefully gives you a glimpse of what is trendy in 2017.
