Given the current pop culture landscape, it should come as no surprise that comic book characters are the most popular, according to the Google Trends platform.

The top costume in Utah follows that trend, Harley Quinn.

Quinn also came in as the most popular in the country and the Joker come in as second-most popular.

The recent release of "Suicide Squad" probably has something to do with it.
