Those planning to be the only Elsa at the Halloween party might want to let that one go. It's likely she'll be the number one costume this year. Mashable asked the data miners at Google Trends to share what costumes people are searching the most, and unsurprisingly, Queen Elsa tops the list. She's joined by a few of her Frozen castmates, and a whole slew of familiar faces in the pop culture world. So, while that Guardian's of the Galaxy costume may seem like a really awesome idea, thousands of others are planning to wear the same thing.
