These are the most popular Halloween costumes about tech and video games, according to Google

GoogleGoogle trends put together a list of the top Halloween costumes.

Google recently published “Freightgeist,” a list of the top 500 Halloween costumes based on Google Trends. Using the tool, you can look at the top costumes nationally, or by state. It also tells you which cities a particular costume is trending in, which is useful if you don’t want to share the spotlight with anyone else on October 31.

You can find Halloween costumes of almost anything, from a sexy “Beyond Burger” to the college admissions scandal. Famous (and infamous) tech founders like Steve Jobs and Elizabeth Holmes are also sure to show up, especially because of their recognisable, minimalist styles, although they didn’t make this list.

Check out the 10 most popular tech Halloween costumes, according to Google, below:
