There are two different approaches you can take when finding the perfect Halloween costume: Either, you think outside the box to craft a clever look, or stay in the middle of the pack (a.k.a. the safe zone) with popular Halloween costume ideas that everyone's guaranteed to love. For an easy, no-fuss holiday, take inspiration from Google's predicted list of 2019's most popular Halloween costumes to find a ready-to-buy or easy-to-DIY outfit that's perfect for you and your family. While some of the top 10 costumes touch on 2019's biggest trends (Fortnite and unicorns, to name a few), other picks lean toward the classic side of things (witches and clowns). No matter what, everyone in your family — him her, kids, babies, you name it —will make your night of trick-or-treating more spooky, magical, and glamorous (okay, the '80s version of glamour). And since everyone's searching for these ideas, that means your kids can't get annoyed when you show up to the Halloween party dressed in an inflatable dinosaur costume ... right?
