Men’s Halloween Costume Ideas

For men who dread coming up with creative men’s Halloween costume ideas, this article is a great help. We’ve come up with men’s costume ideas based on movie characters that are easy to make and sure to impress. Let’s see these and more men’s Halloween costume ideas below.

“Harry Potter” Halloween Costume

What You’ll Need:

For all: A Gryffindor tie, a black robe (a black graduation robe works) with the Hogwarts logo patch sewn on, a Hogwarts scarf.

For Harry: Black pants, a white button-down shirt, black dress shoes, a dark-colored sweater vest, short brown hair, a lightning bolt scar (drawn with makeup or applied with a Potter scar tattoo), a light-up wand and wire-rimmed glasses.

For Hermione: A gray skirt (knee-length), white button-down shirt, dark-colored sweater vest, black dress shoes, long, brown, messy hair, Hermione’s wand.

For Ron: A red wig, black pants, a white button-down shirt, black dress shoes, a dark-colored sweater vest, Ron’s wand and a Quidditch broom.

Optional Accessories: Hedwig the owl, a sorting hat (to help your fellow Halloween-ies figure out which Hogwarts house they’d belong to), a Dementor to follow you around, and a healthy supply of Bertie Botts Beans.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Halloween Costume

What You’ll Need: You can purchase a ready-made “Classic” Wolverine get-up, or you can do a DIY version of the modern — a.k.a. Hugh Jackman’s hotter version — Wolvie. Essential elements: Faded jeans, large metal belt buckle, boots, white tank top undershirt, button-down shirt over that, beat-up dark leather jacket (with three orange stripes around each arm, i.e. duct tape), muttonchop facial hair, Wolverine’s duck-tail-ish hairdo and, of course, the Adamantium claws.

Max: ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Halloween Costume

The easiest way to do this is to buy a cheap pair of Oxford gray sweatpants and a matching gray hoodie. Sew or pin a gray feather boa to the back of the pants for the tail, cut two triangles out of an old gray shirt, tape some cardboard inside so they stick up straight, and pin them to the hood for ears. Toss a gold plastic crown atop that hood — because, you know, you’re supposed king of all those sharp-toothed creatures and you need to assert yourself — and (voila!) you’re ready to sail off to ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’

Optional Accessories: Your fiercest roar, of course … because it’s not a wild rumpus without some good old-fashioned howling. Oh, and if you can convince your friends to dress as the Wild Things and then periodically genuflect to you, that’d sure help your credibility.
