32 Men Halloween Costume Ideas

Crafts for men, Fall Crafts

While I vote the ‘children in Halloween costumes’- pictures and visions to be by far cuter (in particular the toddlers…), I have to say that it was actually easiest to come up with a whole bunch of Halloween costume ideas for men. They were just rolling out of my mind. Then, I went through the laborious task of finding you some sample pictures of what such a costume could look like. Click on each link to find one or more Halloween costume pictures.

Now it’s up to you. You can either purchase your Halloween costume (do it NOW!, don’t wait till the last minute), or make your own home-made version. For some adult costumes, we are fortunate to have some free costume making tutorials.

Halloween Costume Ideas for Men

Here’s my top 11 for Halloween for men:

1. Pirate Costume *

To me, pirates are simply Halloween classics and with this costume, you just can’t go wrong. As well, you can use some of your own props and face makeup. It’s also a fun dress up for father and son.

2. Ranger Costume *

This costume is both stylish and fun. Recommended, and yes, a true class Halloween costume for men also.

3. Obama Mask *

This is a trendy one, which may in the years to come be less ‘on trend’, so I recommend not investing as much in a president’s costume, as simply a face mask will do. I’d add some props that say/represent ‘president of the united states’.

4. Michael Jackson Costume *

This costume comes with the works: sequin gloves, sox and a costume wig. Adding all these together, and perhaps a monkey too, and you’ll get yourself donned out with that Michael Jackson persona.

5. Curious George’s ‘Man In The Yellow Hat’ Costume *

As someone who read all the Curious George stories to her kids for years, the Man with the Yellow Hat has become such a favorite friend of my imagination. So will anyone with this costume conjure up font memories and smiles. Great outfit to choose.

6. Darth Vader Costume

While I’m personally not a fan Darth Vader, I do realise that he’s quite the hero to others. So, I’m putting him there.

7. Fred Flinstone Costume

The Flinstones. I loved these characters as a kid myself! So, a costume as Fred Flinstone can be quite popular as an men’s adult Halloween costume idea.

8. Gorilla Costume

Again, this one does speak to the imagination of quite a few men, so the gorilla costume has to be on this list.

9. Star Trek costume

Star Trek!. This mens costume is also great as one of the personas for a group Halloween costume idea.

10. Renaissance monk costume

This hooded monk costume … yeah…. kinda scary, isn’t it? While in fact, there’s not much to it.

11. Elvis Presley Rock Star Costume

This hooded monk costume … yeah…. kinda scary, isn’t it? While in fact, there’s not much to it.
