Another Halloween has come and gone. The sugar rush is over and the costumes have been put away. But what was the most popular costume in Central New York this year? The answer may surprise you.

Despite the success of the movie, the top costume wasn't Ken and Barbie. Oh, there were a few but not as many as you'd think. Some went all out, box and all.

Taylor & Travis

The most popular costume wasn't Taylor Swift and Taylor Kelce either. Although there were a few, adults and children who imitated the famous couple everyone is talking about on and off the field.

The Adams Family and their daughter Wednesday were the most popular for 2023.
