While Halloween is still a few weeks off, the searches on Yahoo! for the perfect costume are heating up. Still drawing a blank on what to wear on the fright night? We thought we could inspire you with some of the trends we're seeing on the Web.
While popular terms like "witch" and "princess" (not to mention "sexy witch" and "sexy princess") are perennial favorites, this season's lookups are spookily high on one performer who seems to celebrate Halloween every day: Yep, "Lady Gaga Halloween costumes" are topping the list.
Others want to take on the larger-than-life look of the "jersey shore cast costumes." Sure, the Snooki pouf can be had - for a price.
What, not your bag? How about switching out the goblin suit for "vampire costumes." Not a bad choice. Who would really deny you anything dressed like that? Other popular get-ups this year are "Alice in Wonderland," "Glinda the Good Witch" from "The Wizard of Oz" and "Addams Family" costumes.
If you're shopping for your guy, may the force be with you. Because "Star Wars" costumesare among the most popular costume searches for men.

Other top options: Pirates, devils, knights, and mummys.
For the little ones, even infants can part of the fun. Topping the kiddie searches is the "pink poodle infant toddler costume," and we can see why.
Other hot choices with the small set: "Harry Potter", "The Incredibles" costumes, girl vampire costumes, lion costumes, and Elmo.
And what would trick or treating be without dressing up the family pet? Searches on "hot dog costumes" are just too tasty to pass up. Fido will forgive you. Eventually.
