If you’ve ever had trouble picking a Halloween costume, Google’s got your back with a new website called “Google Frightgeist.”

The site uses data from Google Trends to show which costumes are trending locally and nationally on Google search. It’s an amazing way to check if your brilliant costume idea has already been thought of by a million other people in the country — who may or may not be at the same Halloween party as you.

A hint from Google: everyone is going to dress as Batman nemesis Harley Quinn.

One of the most interesting features on Google Frightgeist is the difference in what’s trending in different cities. Washington D.C. favors Batman, while San Francisco loves Star Wars in general, and Presque Isle, Maine, is obsessed with clowns.

Here’s how the the site works.

When you click through the spooky landing page…

…you get to a map of the US.

You can click on any city to see the trending costumes.

You can see the regional differences between Maryland…

…and Texas.

You can also check out what’s trending nationally.

And search for different costumes…

…to see the likelihood that someone will be wearing the same costume.

Check out the Google Frightgeist site for yourself.
