Donald Trump, Harley Quinn and Scarlet Witch most popular Halloween costumes for 2015.

You don’t want to be caught wearing the same Harley Quinn costume as the rest of America–and thankfully, Google is using Big Data to help you avoid it.

Data from Google Trends reveals the controversial Republican candidate topped the trending list, meaning there’s a high chance there will be a lot of Trump lookalikes walking around on October 31st.Come this Halloween, a goodly portion of America apparently plans to dress as Harley Quinn, the murderous, scantily clad sidekick to the Joker in the world of DC Comics’ Batman. Mal and Evie, characters from Disney’s 2015 musical fantasy film Descendants were the second and third trending costumes, with Scarlet Witch from the Marvel Avengers comic book series coming fourth. You can scroll around the interactive map, landing on the info that the top costume in Eureka, CA is Harley’s galpal Poison Ivy, while in Alpena, MI it’s mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen.

The data also revealed the most searched overall costume in the Halloween run-up, which was Harley Quinn — the comic book villain, who will be played by Margot Robbie in the 2016 release of Suicide Squad. Because according to Google’s Frightgeist (a site from our favorite Alphabet subsidiary that is ranking the popularity of costumes based on searches), Star Wars is the second most popular. It also seems like the map is choosing certain towns to highlight based on however it’s parsing search data, so it isn’t a perfect representation of the whole country. Overall, if Google searches are any indication, on this year’s Halloween the U.S. will be brimming with Harley Quinns, Star Wars characters, superheroes (Batman most of all) and pirates. According to the site, the most popular costume to expect in New York is a superhero whereas on the west coast, Star Wars themes are popular in Los Angeles.

The map has a tab to rank national costume trends, too: Currently DC Comics’ beloved and deranged villain Harley Quinn is #1, followed by Star Wars and Superheroes. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the top trending search in Charleston, South Carolina, however ‘Minnie Mouse’ has been widely searched as a costume option in Greenville, North Carolina.

You can also search for your costume of choice to see how popular it is and your projected chances of running into another person similarly clothed at a party. This no doubt reveals something disturbing about the current state of the American psyche, and we’re pretty sure it has something to do with Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy.
