You can look at the most popular costume two ways: a safe bet or completely unoriginal.

I believe there are two types of costume wearers on Halloween. There are those who want to be a complete original with a getup no one else has. And then there are those who wouldn't die if they were caught in the same costume as another party attendee.

Either way, looking at the most popular Halloween costumes in each state is beneficial.

All Home Connections and Cut Cable Today compiled some data from Google Trends. With this they put together a list of the most popular costumes in every single state. The list also tells us that the most popular costumes across the board fall into the superhero and villain category.

The top spot in Arkansas however, is Mickey Mouse.

Mickey is a part of the TV/Pop Culture Characters category which is the second more popular category in the nation. Mickey and Minnie are classic characters that are fun to recreate. I think they are a winner at any Halloween gathering.
