Pumpkins, cobwebs and candy: Halloween is just around the corner. We’re only three weeks out from the spooky holiday, and if you haven’t yet started planning your costume it’s time to get on it — especially if you plan to rock a DIY look.

This year, we’ve seen a lot of great costumes, from a Stranger Things-inspired Eleven costume to an inflatable T-Rex costume for kids. But there are still some popular costumes that haven’t been getting their fair share of time in the spotlight. This year we predict characters like Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman won’t be as popular as they have been in years past. Instead, we’ll see old favorites like Spiderman make a comeback.

To help you decide what to dress up as this October 31st, we’ve rounded up our favorite costumes of 2017 based on popularity on our site and top trending costumes across Google search data. Check out the top five costumes below, and shop them all here!

Why do kids love dressing up as witches and superheroes? Part of it is that they’re fun to play pretend with. But another reason is that costumes offer a chance to find out who you want to be. When you put on a costume, you get a glimpse into an alternate reality where you’re not just yourself anymore. Maybe you’re the star quarterback on your high school football team, or the CEO of a multinational corporation? It’s a fun way to become someone else for the day!
