This year's Halloween costume trend is no joke

SAN ANTONIO – Every Halloween there is that one popular costume that you'll see everyone wearing.
What is the biggest trend for a Halloween costume this year?

Our Sarah Acosta went to Gibson Costume Shop near Broadway and Allensworth to not only find out this year's trend but to take a look at some of the classic costumes.

Last year's Halloween— there were a whole lot of scary clowns after the IT movie came out. This year's trend might still involve a clown.

"There's not really a trend this year, but the Joker is, Batman even though there wasn't a Batman movie they are asking for Batman because of the Joker movie," Sandra Torres, the general manager at Gibson Costume Shop said.
