Forget all you heard about Stranger Things character Eleven being the number one Halloween costume of 2016.

According to trending data from Google’s FrightGeist list, it’s Margot Robbie’s cackling villainess Harley Quinn who’s the most searched-for Halloween outfit this year.

Suicide Squad might have been a bit of a movie dud, but that apparently isn’t putting off fancy dress fanatics in the slightest. Harley’s other half The Joker is the second most popular outfit, followed simply by the term “superhero”.

Expect to see a lot of Jack Sparrows out and about because “pirate” follows in fourth place, while Gal Gadot is clearly having the desired effect, boosting Wonder Woman’s popularity to put her in fifth place.

Harley, however, ranks at number one across the entire US (where the FrightGeist data was collected from), with the states of Massachusetts, Arizona and Arkansas particularly fond of the Clown Princess of Crime.

Of course, loaded readers will be well aware just how popular Harley Quinn is with those who love to dress up and look the part. We’ve done a whole feature on the very best Harley cosplayers.

Even Holly Willoughby has been joining in with the fun.

Here are the top ten most popular Halloween costumes you can expect to see in 2016…

  1. Harley Quinn
  2. Joker
  3. Superhero
  4. Pirate
  5. Wonder Woman
  6. Witch
  7. Batman
  8. Star Wars

  10. Dinosaur

Number nine? This can only end badly what with the recent spate of clown attacks
