Georgia's top Halloween costumes: Wonder Woman, mermaids and rabbits

Got party plans next Tuesday, or going trick or treating? If you're in Atlanta or Savannah you are likely to run into lots of Wonder Women. Mermaids and cheerleaders seem sure to make the Halloween scene in Augusta and Albany, respectively. If you're in Macon or Columbus, on the other hand, keep an eye out for bunny ears.

That's all according to Google search data breaking down what the top Halloween costumes are by metro area. Here and in Savannah, the top search is for "Wonder Woman," no doubt propelled by the smash summer movie starring Gal Gadot. As my colleague Kelcie Willis reported earlier this year it was "the highest-grossing comic book superhero movie in history with a female lead."

Augusta and Albany searches are dominated by "mermaid" and "cheerleader" while Macon and Columbus, the top Halloween costume search is for "rabbit."
