You might already have your costume picked out. Or if you're procrastinating, you're running out of days. Either way, we wanted to know which costumes you'll se the most on October 31.

With more than just a week until Halloween, costumes at Spirit Halloween, near 48th and R, are flying off the shelves.

And every year, they become a little more creative.

"With the boys, the most popular costume has actually been Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," Sam Rooney, Sales Associate at Spirit Halloween, said. "For little girls, it's actually been Ariel."

Rooney says Ariel has been the most popular for women too, but the costume for all ages is sold out.

The store says men have been coming in asking for Si, the eccentric uncle from the TV show, Duck Dynasty. But that's sold out too.

Other popular picks? Your standard super heroes, pirates and butterflies.

And because of another hit TV show, The Walking Dead, zombies.

But some people are opting to be a little creative and make their own costumes.

"I'm gonna be Nikki Minaj," one 9-year-old girl said. "Rainbow cheetah print leggings, I'm gonna wear those with a half and half pink and blonde wig."

And if you've seen the movie The Purge..

"We ordered the mask and then we're going to wear tux's that we rented and we have NURF guns," one woman said.

And of course, we can't forget what's possibly the most popular costume this season, right down to the foam finger, Miley Cyrus.

"We got her in for a total of one day and then she was gone," Rooney said.
