Pop Viz: Spooky or Sexy? Halloween Costumes Dashboard
Happy October, dear readers! If you still haven’t picked a Halloween costume, don’t fret! I’ve made a little dashboard based on data I scraped from Buycostumes.com via Import.io. You can use it to explore costumes that are “sexy” versus “spooky”. And once you decide what you are going to be for Halloween, you can fill out my costume survey, which I will turn into a viz sometime next week!
Here’s the dashboard:
A few findings:
- Sexy costumes seem to be on average cheaper than other costumes. I guess there is less fabric?
- I’m surprised there aren’t as many spooky costumes, seeing that zombies and vampires are both really popular in pop culture these days.
- I was too lazy to make a separate category, but it does seem like the majority of costumes these days are based on characters from pop culture. I hope to answer this with my super non-scientific study about what people are wearing for Halloween!
