Break out your shin guards and shades this Halloween. The most-searched celebrity costume is none other than Nicki Minaj. According to TIME’s Google probing, women (and probably some men) around the world will be emulating the pop star’s blindingly bright hair and highly (almost dangerously) embellished outfits this Halloween.

Nicki topped the list as the most-searched celebrity costume, beating out Charlie Sheen (insert stock “not #winning” joke here). The living Barbie doll has certainly provided tons of inspiration in 2011 alone. (Check out this handy-dandy roundup of all her craziest/best get-ups.)

We’re partial to her, um, creation at this year’s VMAs (pictured), if only for its recession-friendly properties. Plus, whatever toys you purchase for said ensemble can be redistributed as gifts for Christmas!
