AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you’re debating on which Halloween costume to go with, don’t get the T-Rex because everybody got that costume, apparently.

Walmart.com shared its list of top selling adult and kid costumes Friday. For adults it’s the Jurassic Park T-Rex Inflatable costume and a Spiderman Muscle Chest costume for the kiddos. The T-Rex, with a price tag of $34.99, has been a hit among older trick-or-treaters in 43 states while the Spiderman Muscle Chest costume beat out other heroic icons in more than seven states.

Texas topped the list as the state with the most demand for these two costumes with Paw Patrol, Jurassic World and Wonder Woman costumes other strong contenders for kids’ go-to outfit nationwide this holiday. While Batman and Superman are fairly familiar names on the list, Wonder Woman ranked high thanks in part to revitalized interest in the Amazonian after her first movie in more than 40 years premiered this summer. The fearless warrior was an immediate hit with children and adults alike.

Walmart says spooky and horror costumes have been pushed aside in favor of costumes for notable icons and TV characters. Walmart predicts superhero costumes will be the most popular choices for kids with Captain America, Iron Man and Superman the most popular choices after Spiderman.

Meanwhile, pirate costumes are flying off the shelves in troves in Louisiana and New Mexico is abuzz about the bumble bee. Stranger Things premieres this Friday so expect to see a few Elevens and Demogorgons around town as well.
