With Halloween right around the corner many people will almost certainly soon be scrambling for ideas for a "good costume". Of course, something completely original is always great, but so are the classics. Here is a countdown of the top costumes ideas for October of 2009.

The top ten most popular (based on online chatter) adult Halloween costumes are:

10. A Vampire

9. An Angel

8. A Witch

7. A Dog

6. A Doctor

5. A Cat

4. A Cheerleader

3. A Pirate

2. Michael Jackson

...and the most popular Adult Halloween Costume for 2009 is...

1. A Princess

Not quite making the top ten were a devil, a police officer, a nurse, the grim reaper, a ghost, a clown, a bunny, President George W. Bush, a zombie, a ho, President Barack Obama, a school girl, a french maid, a pimp, a wench, a firefighter, and a mime.

So it looks like the classics - a princess, a pirate, a withc, and angel, and a vampire have reamined strong. It isn't too surprising that Michael Jackson did so well considering his recent tragic death. I was surprised that a President Obama costume didn't make the top ten given his popularity. I was also surprised that a doctor did make the top 10 while a nurse did not. I must admin to being relieved that neither a clown or mime made the top 10. I am also relieved to see that the whole "Pimp and Ho" craze seems to be dying out.

I compiled this list by searching for each of the costumes on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.
