“I see my face in the mirror and go, ‘I’m a Halloween costume? That’s what they think of me?'” asks Drew Carey.





You could wear a Drew Carey costume – or you could be the future Drew Carey with the old man mask! Click on the old guy’s head for more info about that costume.

Men’s Halloween Costumes

This article has been improved and updated! Read 23 Fast, Easy Men’s Halloween Costumes You Can Make at Home.

Action Figure or Superhero Still in the Box: Get a large sheet of cardboard big enough to fold around your back and sides. For the front, use a clear shower curtain with holes or a slit cut into it so you can reach out. Then paint the box, attach accessories to the inside and elastic straps for yourself, and dress up as whatever action figure you want to be!

Alien Host: Attach an alien doll to your midsection. Cut a hole in the middle of your clothes so it looks like the alien is bursting through your stomach. Splatter fake blood around the hole.

Anthrax Investigator: Wear a gas mask, a long yellow overcoat, and white gloves. Or, this easy Halloween costume for men could be a Swine Flu Investigator.

“B” Keeper: Carry several bags filled with “B”s cut out of construction paper.

Baseball Card: Find a poster of a baseball player (the face should be approximately the size of your face). Glue it to a large piece of cardboard and cut a hole for your face to stick through. Attach straps so it hangs over your shoulders. Add your name and a team name. If you want you can add another piece of cardboard to your back with statistics.

Basket Case: Uniform colored clothing (dark works best) with lots of baskets pinned all over. Top it off with a basket with a handle on your head.

Birthday Suit: Get a pre-packaged birthday kit (tablecloth, hats, plates). Cut a hole in the center of the tablecloth for your head. Staple plates, cups, napkins, etc., on the tablecloth. Put a birthday hat on your head. When someone asks what you are, tell them you are wearing your birthday suit.

Blind Date: Take a day of the week calendar and tape the days all over your body. Throw on a pair of sunglasses and get a cane and you’re all set to go.

Blind Referee: Dress like a referee, wear dark glasses and carry a white cane.

Blood Sucking Attorney: Dress in business suit, and carry a brief case. Wear vampire makeup and fake vampire teeth. Pass out business cards that say “B. Sucking, Attorney-at-Law.”

Blue Moon: Buy a fake “rear end” from a costume store. Wear all blue and cut the bottom out so your fake rear shows through.

Bonfire: Wrap a brown towel around your waist and wear a brown or gray sweatshirt. Attach branches or twigs to the towel and put a few marshmallows on the branches. Create “flames” by using orange,red and yellow tissue paper surrounding your head. Color your cheeks red.

Born to Be Wild: Dress like a baby (diaper, bonnet, bib, rattle), then add a leather jacket, bandana and boots.

Brain Donor: Get a hospital gown, blacken both eyes and wrap your head in gauze with some fake blood spots. Get a clear jar, put small amount of water in the jar with some cauliflower. On the front of the jar put a big label that says “Brain Donor.”

Buccaneer: Dress in a pirate costume and attach a dollar to each ear (“buck-an-ear”). This creative Halloween costume for men comes premade — just click the image!

Bum: Wear dirty, mismatched clothes, high water pants, and suspenders. Color your nose red and carry a bottle of “something” in a brown paper bag.

    I’ve heard that a popular Halloween costume for men is Michael Jackson. Don’t you think that’s in poor taste? I do.

    If I could dress up like a scooter for Halloween, I would. I don’t know how that would work as a Halloween costume but that’s what I want to go as.

    Has anyone worn a scooter costume?

    I’m not quite sure how to answer your question about looking different from others at Halloween! I thought these Halloween costumes were already really different…

    There is a second half to this article, called Easy Halloween Costumes for Men – Part 2. Maybe a costume in that article will be different enough — and let you be the center of attention at the Halloween party! 🙂

    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful variety of costumes. I liked the Halloween party ideas, too. I usually have a blast at Halloween parties.

    Could you suggest how I can look different from others? It would be really helpful. I like to dress up at such occasion and like to get the attention of people.
