Some people start planning their Halloween costume months in advance while others throw something together at the last minute.

Either way, it can be tough to decide what to wear!  So this year,  Google is helping you out.

Their website Google Frightgeist has a 'costume wizard.'  You make a few selections, such as how spooky and unique you want your costume to be, and they'll come up with an idea for you.

The News 3 morning team gave it a try.  Here are the results:

  • Blaine - Kristoff from the movie Frozen
  • Jessica - Legoman
  • Erica - Wednesday Addams
  • Kristen - Mermaid
  • Dominic - Candy Corn

The site also shows you the top trends nationally and locally.  Here's a look at the most popular costumes this year:
