Guess what Londoners are most likely to dress as this Halloween…

Kate Lloyd

Ah, Londoners: we're so aware of the zeitgeist that we're becoming the zeitgeist. Literally. 

A new survey from asked 2,647 people from around the UK what they were dressing up as for Halloween this year. Where as Scots liked to keep things simple with a Morphsuit and Welsh people opted for classic spooky looks, Londoners are most likely to be dress up as 'a living celebrity'.

Of course we are; Halloween is as much an opportunity to show off our knowledge of what's #trending as it is to don a silly outfit. Our parties this year are going to be full of people dressed as 'Ariana Grande licking a donut', 'Miley Cyrus at the VMAs' and 'pizza rat'. 

Disney characters were popular in the north west, Yorkshire folk opted for animal outfits and people living in the east of England like to keep things night-out-with-the-lasses, with uniformed service costumes like nurses and doctors.

Here's the full list:

North West – a Disney character (33%)
South East – traditional Halloween costumes e.g. ghosts, witches and skeletons (29%)
West Midlands – a zombie (28%)
Yorkshire and the Humberside – an animal (25%)
Scotland – a Morphsuit (24%)
East of England – uniformed service like nurses, doctors etc. (22%)
East Midlands – a superhero (20%)
London – a living celebrity (19%)
Wales – traditional Halloween costumes e.g. ghosts, witches and skeletons (18%)
North East – a movie character (17%)
Northern Ireland – a dead celebrity e.g. Marilyn Monroe (15%)
South West – a zombie (15%)
