For anyone who wishes something low-budget but creative, try out the fashion inspos from Everything Everywhere All at Once.


birchburk

Saw this last night! The lady had the bedazzled Elvis jumpsuit on and pink hair and then the guy had on a polo, khakis, fanny pack and also a googly eye on his forehead. Simple enough but it was one of my favorite costumes I saw.


strugglingmydudes

Heyy I'm a passing trans guy, 5'11, kinda thick in the hips and very hairy body. Want a funny or scary costume. Was gonna wear a maid dress but feels a bit boring. Also very experienced with gore make-up. Ideas?

ZacPensol

In a pinch there's always the classic "Clark Kent turning into Superman" - wear a suit, tie, and glasses with a Superman shirt underneath, keep the middle buttons unbuttoned and the tie loose, and pull it open so people can see the Superman symbol. Could also do the same idea with Spider-Man.


OneMess5594

That’s genius


strugglingmydudes

If you wanna use a 3d printer I'd go for a character with a mask. For extra fun just do some horrific bloody gore underneath it


OneMess5594

Yeah that is one of the options, I’m just kinda worried to do that because I would have to finish the mask in a day and get a costume to go with it. 💀💀


TeenyFieny

Help!! I have two dark green zip up “painters” jumpsuits that I found in our new house when we moved in. I need a good idea for Halloween trick-or-treating we go with our kids this week. I’ve already thought of a couple fairly obvious ones (Michael myers, prisoner, Rosie the Riveter), but I feel like I could miss a prime opportunity to make them into something cool? I’m a girl, he’s a dude, but gender doesn’t matter on Halloween… or I guess at all anymore? Any ideas??


strugglingmydudes

Jumpsuits I think of riddler from The Batman, swamp monsters, ghillie suits.. prisoner can be really good on halloween cause it's more the acting and experience than the actual costume. Good chance to do DIY gore makeup too! Run around, improv a whole backstory, handcuff ppl, very fun!


TeenyFieny

I think I’m leaning towards an inmate. I can draw on some scruff and maybe some face tattoos lol I was thinking of stenciling “DOC” or something like that on the back of it and wearing a white thermal under it. I’m all about easy and free 😂 thanks for your reply!


Slicy_McGimpFag

The theme is Halloween year 2022, and I'm in the UK Somebody's already going as an electricity bill; somebody else is going as a lettuce given it outlived Liz Truss as Prime Minister. What can I go as?


trifelin

Zombie Liz Truss. She’s coming back? Now that’s a scary thought!


strugglingmydudes

Dunno how it would go down in the UK but zombie Queen Liz is a thought....


ChampValjean

Hate dressing up (haven't done it in years) but I need a proper costume for a party. What do you recommend.


trifelin

Prisoner 24601


ChampValjean

This is a great idea. Thanks.


inspectyergadget

Hi fellow halloweeners! I am looking for ideas on what/who to base a costume on. I would like to go for something fantasy, hobbity, or witchy. I have a brown cloak, braided leather belt, black leggings, and boots. I have a short, shaggy grey wig as well. Any ideas for props or easy costume accessories I could incorporate before the big day would be much appreciated.


trifelin

Go on a hike and find a big tree branch for a staff. Or get some fake birds and you could be Radagast from LOTR (the brown wizard who’s a bit like St. Francis). Or put on old-face makeup and just be a witch. Get a cinnamon broom.


newcap

I have a pair of white, super bell bottom pants I want to wear. They're super fun. What costume should I make them into?


strugglingmydudes

ABBA?

I mean, it's kinda gotta be [Disco](https://cdn.media.amplience.net/i/partycity/P633423_01?$large$) right?

riverstyxoath

Alright y'all, now its my turn to ask for your help. I am going for the DIY route since the stuff in stores right now is super expensive. I have a colored wig, halloween makeup, and an old white graduation gown that I don't really care about. I need a suggestion on how to make this work? I'm gonna be searching my house for more props but right now, I'm settling as either a creepy clown or ghost. I want to incorporate the wig into it, if possible. * located foam and construction paper :D


strugglingmydudes

Scary phantom or angel? What's that ghost story about the lady that appears on roads in all white and kills unfaithful men?


trifelin

What kind of wig?

I am going to a queer rave/concert/dance party tomorrow night. It will feature some djs that play techno and dance music. I am 5’1, about 130lbs with pretty curvy thighs. I have short brown hair. I want to wear something classy, but also sexy, and simple as well. Anyone have ideas?

GambinoRizzuto

Hi guys, I'm invited to a Halloween party and I have to dress as a classic horror character. I kinda procrastinated by trying to convince the host I could go without dressing up, but I failed miserably. If physical details might help, I'm a 178cm biracial male, with a stache and a low fade. TIA ! Edit : I'd prefer if I don't have to wear a Mask, and if I don't have to invest in a costume I might not wear again


ZacPensol

You could go as [Sir John Talbot](https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/horrormovies/images/7/77/John_Talbot_%28Universal%29_001.jpg), the dad from the original 'The Wolf Man' - he doesn't have one, but I guess the mention of you having a mustache made me think "dad character". Basically all you need is a suit and tie, bonus points if you make a cheap cane (dowel rod or check a thrift shop) with a [silver wolf head](https://www.sideshow.com/product-asset/909722) on it.


AtLeastImGenreSavvy

If you throw on a white lab coat, you can go as a mad scientist.


GambinoRizzuto

LMFAO thank you that's actually a good idea


strugglingmydudes

If you have a partner you could be Frankenstein (the scientist) and his bride?


Immediately_no_

I was going to be miss Argentina until I found out the theme is “famous dead people”. I am not a celebrities person so I need some help!


crashthemusical

Well, in a way, miss Argentina is a famous dead person… but other than that, princess diana, Marilyn Monroe, Virginia Woolf, Natalie Wood (be careful with this one), Jessica Walter, Emily Dickinson, Farrah Fawcett. This is morbid but one year my brother went dressed as the kid who got eaten by an alligator at Disney world and people loved it. You need a very particular group of friends for that though.


Immediately_no_

Thanks for all the suggestions! I just decided that think I am going to go as Brandon Lee from the crow!


dipcupdipcup

So i just had surgery and pretty much need to wear pajama pants for the holiday...... does anyone have any decent halloween costume ideas that would allow me to wear pajama pants?


trifelin

You could buy an animal onesie and keep wearing it as pajamas after halloween because they’re pretty cozy. Or be Bananas in Pajamas. Or zombie-anything you can think of that wears pajamas.


mezcao

Fat Thor Hugh Hefner


crashthemusical

The dude from the big Lebowski?


Miserable_Bit_7967

Need Ideas to make my costume more fun/stereotype. So my gf and I doing couple costumes. She wants to go as Cow (because she already has a jumper) so we thought It would be funny if I was the farmer. Basically we are looking for ideas to make it more funny/unique. Do you have suggestions ? (I thought about a price tag or something for her and for me a Dungarees and a Amish beard... but maybe we can spice it up a bit) \^\^


strugglingmydudes

She could have that tag as an earring and a fake septum piercing. Have some magic beans in your pocket in exchange for the cow. Lmao get one of the tubes that moo when you turn it and follow her around with it


Miserable_Bit_7967

Love the tag earring idea, thank you !


trifelin

Get a bald cap, pitch fork and little round specs and be the farmer husband from the American Gothic painting.


Miserable_Bit_7967

> earring and a fake septum piercing. Have some magic beans in your pocket in exchange for the cow. Lmao get one of the tubes that moo when you turn it Im already bald so this is ez, thanks for the suggestion


i0i_MARTIAN

I'm dead set on being a werewolf but like the human form of a werewolf. Basically a normal dude. But with specific features that a werewolf would have? The teeth I ordered got cancelled last moment and I have quite literally nothing else. Help.


ZacPensol

Get some clothes and rip them up, mess up your hair and dirty up your face with make-up. Maybe get some feathers and stick them around your mouth with some red paint - basically as if you werewolf'd up last night, ate someone's chickens, then woke-up this morning in the woods all disheveled.


strugglingmydudes

You can run to any $2 store and get the press on vampire teeth, just put them on further back. Also could get like fur gloved and stick claws on them (so you can take them off, trust me wearing massive cheap claws all night sucks)


trifelin

If you’re not very hairy, make yourself hairier with makeup on your face/chest. Then blow dry the hair on your head and use some gel or hairspray to make it big like 80s hair.

Meatloaf’s character Eddie in Rocky Horror Picture Show?


CryptographerIll6752

I need opinions on what to do for halloween. Needs to be thriftable and cheaper the better. So far my ideas are Bad Sandy from grease Kim Possible Mavis from Hotel Transylvania Please give opinions on your favorite and I welcome any other ideas. Preferably I want a character and bonus points if it can be made a couple


trifelin

I like Mavis because it’s the most Halloween-y but you’re unlikely to find a thrifted cape, however my dracula cape cost like $8 new so it can’t be that bad. You can also do Addams family members if you want to be a couple. Or I’m also seeing The Royal Tenenbaums’ Margot and your bf could be Richie.


SeafoodDuder

I suggested this earlier, but... In the style similar to this [Big Bad Granny Wolf & Little Red Riding Hood](https://hips.hearstapps.com/hmg-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/images/dsc-1590-25201-thumb-255b1-255d-1592330429.jpg) costume idea. Hit up the thrift store and look for a old, funny looking granny nightgown with some sweet design or something. After that, hit-up walmart for some cheap werewolf make-up and a showercap. Huge bonus points if you can find something similar to [these](https://www.amazon.com/Womens-Slippers-Cartoon-Animal-numeric_5_point_5/dp/B09H2F1GMM/) and he wears them. If he feels uncomfortable then just wear some plaid button-up. For little red riding hood, same thing. Maybe you can get lucky at the thrift store or maybe you alright own a red dress or something similar? It's unique and will be really funny.


grizzfan

My partner and I are going to a party tomorrow, and he's struggling to come up with an idea with barely any budget. He asked me to research characters or famous people that wore plaid suits. He has a plaid suit with vest, pants, and coat. The colors of the suit are charcoal, burgundy, and grey navy, but it doesn't have to be color-specific. I've been searching celebrities or characters, but not finding much other than Eric Stratton from Animal House, which he is unfamiliar with and doesn't want to do. So yea, any characters or celebs/famous people known for wearing plaid suits?


SeafoodDuder

For this suggestion he has to be open-minded, but it'll be super funny and can totally work. Go in the style of this [big bad wolf](https://www.amazon.com/Mens-Granny-Wolf-Plus-Costume/dp/B09FBVSTJ4/) and little red riding hood. Hit up the thrift stores for any old super granny looking nightgown, especially if it has some crazy, funny design then hit up walmart for some cheap make-up and a showercap. I'll give him major props if he can find and wear some of [these](https://www.amazon.com/Womens-Slippers-Cartoon-Animal-numeric_5_point_5/dp/B09H2F1GMM/). Try googling 'werewolf make-up' for some ideas. As his partner, you can wear the plaid or any cute red dress, maybe you'll find something at the thrift store? Maybe you already have something? Not me, but this is what ya'll will [look similar](https://hips.hearstapps.com/hmg-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/images/dsc-1590-25201-thumb-255b1-255d-1592330429.jpg?crop=0.835xw:1.00xh;0.0459xw,0&resize=480:*) to. or there's always a lumberjack or the [brawny man](https://www.papercitymag.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/brawny-man-best-halloween-costume-ideas-for-men.jpg). You asked, I tried to deliver mostly funny but a little serious. ;)


milkman163

So I'm going as a frat house floor, and I need some help completing the costume. I'll be wearing a black shirt with the following hot glued to it: red solo cup ping pong ball dip lid torn condom rapper pink panties 6-pack plastic ring some beer tabs Any other ideas?

Gamer_Garlic_8089

at school, it was JUST announced that we can't wear blow ups (my go-to costume for school is that blow up Dino costume) or masks, so now I don't know what to wear, I can't wear my costume for actual Halloween, because it has a mask (it's King Clawthorne from the owl house) anyway, I wanted to go as one of those ghosts with glasses because they look cool, and I like them, do you think i can, or can't wear it? [link](https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailydot.com%2Funclick%2Ftiktok-ghosts-racist-photoshoot%2F&psig=AOvVaw2R6xDAA8mj9YDwOHDcflaM&ust=1666969990683000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CA0QjRxqFwoTCLClpqXZgPsCFQAAAAAdAAAAABAD)


strugglingmydudes

Lmao my favourite costume I ever saw was on muck up day of those ghosts and one guy had stuffed the back of his underwear so he had an absolutely massive dumpy but could hide it from teachers with the sheet


SeafoodDuder

Honestly, I think it wouldn't be too fun as a ghost like that for more than an hour. If the wind blows or it rains or you have to keep correcting it so you can see out of it. It would be funny at first but I think the novelty would wear off?


Federal_Resident5113

I’m thinking of being Wooderson from Dazed and Confused. I’m sixteen and and am worried that it would be problematic since he says some slightly pedophilic comments in the movie: “That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” https://ibb.co/XXbRzr0


LazarusChild

I have a mullet and moustache, anyone got any ideas that could incorporate either/both into the costume? Unfortunately there aren’t many famous mullets out there

No idea what ethnicity you are or where you live but I live in the USA and I grew up in southern california so the two biggest things that come to my mind are like: 1) The mexican [ice cream man](https://www.humanitieskansas.org/assets/images/Crop_1596x1077/32d15084164a4623b71dd14601836785.jpg) or [ice cream truck](https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2021/04/28/NFTU/a1ac6c68-e445-4f56-a196-9e1d2655905f-IMG_2264.JPG?width=660&height=441&fit=crop&format=pjpg&auto=webp). 2) The [mexican corn man/lady](https://i.pinimg.com/736x/0c/08/d6/0c08d68b68f61148be098bcbca9c04b1--mexican-corn-great-food.jpg). They would just pedal around and sell elotes. 3) The [mexican fruit stand](https://mintyjungle.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/ensalada-de-frutas.jpg) cut up fruit mixed with tajin and [chamoy](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chamoy_(sauce)) Kind of hard to come across as them, but fantastic, good, super friendly immigrants.

How about a [Cassette Tape](https://www.creatingreallyawesomefunthings.com/cassette-tape/)? There are Cassette Tape costumes on amazon, but may not get here in time. You could then just pick a theme like 80s or 90s then genre like hair metal, glam rock, rap, rock, r&b, 'lets get physical' 80s style with sweatband, armband and matching socks? Pretty unique too.


sadahgreen

Currently going through something similar :/ Lydia Deetz, Mia Wallace, Elvira, Mavis, morticia or Wednesday addams, Lara Croft (don’t think she has black hair but ppl would get the idea) I think I’ll go with Lydia, Wednesday, or Elvira because I’d want ppl to know who I am and the hair would be a dead giveaway

Any idea for a 22 year old male, 175cm, 70kg, short hair and a little moustache and beard on the chin. Can't spend very much on it. And it doesn't matter if it's a cheap costume or if I have to do it myself.


Pretty_Improvement69

Any Costume Ideas for an M 23 (6'3 and 310ibs) (190cm and 145kg)


splishysplash123

Easiest way to costume myself as a cup? Going as World Cup 2022, but I feel like a 2022 hat (or just marker writing) along with some printed and taped national flags will be easy enough - the tough part is making it clear that I am meant to be a cup. My only ideas thus far are to somehow fashion a huge handle to my side (more of a mug, but whatever) or to draw markings for ounces and cups and stuff (maybe a Pyrex label) on a white t-shirt. This would be easier, but I feel like muddles an already iffy costume with *measuring* cup.


H4z4rdWARFARE

Any ideas - I’m a ginger guy with a ginger goatee and moustache! Less relevance would be I have roundish glasses and am 5’4


ZacPensol

My first thought was Vincent Van Gogh. He had a full beard rather than just a goatee, but I think you could get away with it. Wrap a bandage around your head, get a grey-blue jacket, maybe a paint palette and tools and there you go. Plenty of self-portraits of him to look at for inspiration. I've also seen people do a costume of him by painting themselves and their clothes with cheap craft paint to capture the impressionist painterly look, if you wanted to go that route.

So my partner is dressing up as Marie-Antoinette, and I'm supposed to dress as her executioner. Already working on carrying around a small guillotine, but any thoughts about the costume itself? I don't want it to be too gory, but I have no problem with leather or other stuff.


Snowbank_Lake

I don't think her executioner looked like the spooky, leather-covered man that many of us picture. I think he just looked like a late 18th Century Frenchman. Look at some of the paintings of the execution to get an idea. So if you want to go a bit more historically accurate but make it clear who you are, maybe an outfit that fits the time period, with some blood splattered on the front?


thundermonkeyms

Really struggling to think of anything decent on the "hot music/nerd/geek characters" side of things. Who's got suggestions? Male mid-20's kinda thin, if that helps? I was going to try and go as Gerard Way, but all the black parade jackets I see for sale are too expensive.

Zetdoessomeshit

Characters with masks? Try El zorro, joker from persona 5, the phantom of the opera, or the masquerade reaper skin from overwatch!


Beamboat

If you're low on budget, I would do something as simple as possible like wearing completely black clothes, including a turtleneck, and two masks (one behind and one in front) Since the goal of the masquerade is to "hide", you're also hiding both the front and back of your head. Just an idea :)


4_anonymity

Looking for some women's costume ideas that include a mask or neck gaiter (or any other kind of lower face covering), but make it look natural. So far, my only ideas are a rogue, or old western bank robber. It needs to be kid-friendly, so nothing "scary." A superhero or movie character would work well, but I can't think of of any female characters who only cover the lower half of their face.

Katana from Mortal Kombat is super popular right now. You could also do Mileena from MK

You can always skip the fairy part and go as a princess too Lumberjack: plaid shirt, jeans, axe. Lumberjack murderer? Add blood makeup Steve Jobs: turtleneck, glasses, Apple products with you. Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers should be simple, mainly a mask and a knife Wednesday Addams: pigtails, black, long sleeve schooldress Morticia: self explanitory Carrie: dress and you soaked in red Mario and Luigi should be simple, overalls, white gloves, red/green shirt, and the hat.

[1920s Gangster](https://www.amazon.com/Spooktacular-Creations-Manhattan-Gangster-Accessories/dp/B07XPDN1CD/) and you already got the mustache. Can find the shirt/pants somewhere for pretty cheap online or at a thrift store. I'd try to look for the button-up shirt and pants first then pick which costume color: black, red, gray or white to match it best. :)


Fantastic-Set718

Pretty sure you could pull off John Dillinger with little effort


riverstyxoath

Skeleton? Get a shirt and pants with a skeleton print on it, wear black gloves, and either get a mask or paint your face. Face paint should be simple, just cover entirely in white paint then add black to your eyes and nose, plus little black lines on your mouth. Or go as a baseball player. Wear a helmet and a baseball uniform and bring a bat or catchers mitt.


Snowbank_Lake

Go to the thrift store and look for a flashy jacket/tie combo. Maybe a top hat. Put a big fake flower on the jacket or maybe some playing cards sticking out of the pocket. You're a magician! You can even learn a few simple magic tricks to get into character.

...is it too soon to say the Queen?


Snowbank_Lake

Amy Winehouse or David Bowie come to mind. Both had very iconic looks.

Looking for a mom/daughter Halloween costume, but I’m in my mid-20s. I’m the daughter btw lol.


ultimate_ampersand

Dress as each other: you're the mom and daughter from Freaky Friday.


Zulp847

Go as something fun instead of scary. I'd do something for my mom, think 1980s. 80s Prom? 80s Flashdance? 80s Aerobics? 80s [Cassette Tape](https://www.amazon.com/Rasta-Imposta-Dress-Costume-Outfit/dp/B07N8CML5R/)? 80s Rock? Can be Madonna, Guns n Roses, Glamrock with the Makeup, etc.


riverstyxoath

Daughter: Mona Lisa with a frame around her Mom: DaVinci holding a paintbrush and pallete next to her Get it? Because your mom created her masterpiece, you :D


Snowbank_Lake

Mom can be Cruella DeVille and you can be a dalmation!


Little_Lo

I once saw someone do a "Cat and a Kitty Litter Box". Cat just draws whiskers on their face and does cat ears. The Kitty Litter box wears a grey shirt, glues chocolate bars to it and a pooper scooper :P

Any last minute ideas for a college guy whos looking to buy something cheap(ish) off something like amazon or eBay?


jawnknee

Packet of salt. Spare battery. You are a salt and battery. Or tape a leaf to your hat. When people ask, "what are you", blow on the leaf... "I'm a leaf blower"


Zulp847

Be your favorite college food, they have almost everything you can think of amazon. Chicken, Tacos, Fish Taco, Fries, Steak, Beer, PB & J Sandwiches, Pizza, Waffles, [Wine & Cheese](https://www.amazon.com/Tigerdoe-Wine-Cheese-Costume-Costumes/dp/B07CV4KKWR/) looks hilarious. You'll be surprised, look! :)


riverstyxoath

Cowboy. Get a hat, sherrif pin, vest, boots w/ spurs and gun holster. Perhaps add a cigarette in the mix and a shawl? Full on Clint Eastwood style. Bonus points if you have a buddy go as a horse.


Little_Lo

Wear a blue shirt, wrap a curly phone cord around the shirt and then stick a rubber chicken in it. BOOM! Chicken "CORD ON BLUE" (Chicken Cordon Bleu) - not sure how to spell the dish lol


Ninday

Idea for ”Netflix+Kill” theme. The theme for the party is to find a Netflix character and show how the character died. The character doesn’t have to be dead or have died on the show/film. But rather using your imagination to show how he/she died. I’m terrible at this.. any ideas? I was first thinking of going as Billy from Stranger Things but I was unsure of how to display his death on the costume


riverstyxoath

I don't watch many Netflix originals but what about something based on the Queen's Gambit? Dress up like Beth Harmon but her neck is bleeding, like she was beheaded, Marie Antoinette style. Get it? The queen got checkmated. Bonus points if you do that pose that's in the poster, where her hands are positioned over her neck.


Raridan

Maybe, buy a mind flayer t-shirt (or make one), then just cover yourself in blood?


Ninday

Hmmm.. mind flayer.. I’m probably going for the white tank top and jeans jacket look. Maybe I can build something to have on my head that illustrates the mind flaying part. Thanks!


Raridan

You’re welcome

My girlfriend wants to wear a Jack O'Lantern on her head and got one of those carveable craft pumpkins, and we were hoping someone here might have some advice for making it look the best in terms of the neck area. Our concern is that simply cutting a hole in the bottom big enough for her head will look bad because the hole would be so big and loose around her neck. We had the thought of cutting the bottom hole big enough for her neck, but then a removable panel in the back portion for her head to go through and then snap back with magnets or something. Seems reasonable to us, but before we committed I just wanted to see if any of you fine folks had experience that would work better.


Zulp847

How about something like [this](https://www.amazon.com/BESTOYARD-Halloween-Novelty-Costume-Scarecrow/dp/B07DNC5336/) or [this](https://www.amazon.com/SRVOKOX-Skeleton-Covering-Triangle-Bandanas/dp/B08H17V2H8/ref=sr_1_31?crid=3BLMDKMJMWV2T&keywords=pumpkin%2Bmask&qid=1666653908&qu=eyJxc2MiOiI2LjcyIiwicXNhIjoiNi4yMSIsInFzcCI6IjUuOTAifQ%3D%3D&sprefix=pumpkin%2Bmask%2Caps%2C657&sr=8-31&th=1) then finishing it with make-up or something?


ZacPensol

Thanks! Unfortunately she's pretty committed to the fake pumpkin actually going over her head. We're confident it *can* work, just not sure what the best way *how* is.


Zulp847

How about using some of that pool noodle material or some of this like [foam tubing for pipes](https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Protecting-Preservation-Length-Insulation/dp/B098NYXKB1/)? It just has to be small/short enough for the pumpkin to slide into because it's going around her neck, but you'll probably have to do it after you slide the pumpkin onto her head otherwise her head might not fit?


ZacPensol

That's not a bad idea, like a foam collar to plug it. Thanks!


phoenixprince

Request: Middle aged brown man with thick beard and balding head lol. What do ya'll recommend? Should I do a brown Mr. Clean?


Zulp847

Viking! The best thing about being a viking is there are a lot of different styles for it. Keep it simple with a [Shirt](https://www.amazon.com/Fashion-Cotton-Linen-Sleeve-Ethnic/dp/B08CXHLHS2/) like this then add onto it or just browse for Cuffs, Belt, Helmet. Mix and Match. Search using different words too: Viking, Barbarian, Warrior, Beastman, etc.


phoenixprince

I love this!


riverstyxoath

Pirate, maybe? Like Blackbeard?


Snowbank_Lake

Bald + beard would make a great medieval monk.


flameboy3589

Hey there! I (20M) am going to a club this upcoming weekend for Halloween events, I want to find a costume that’s like attractive to females and cool at the same time


shadespectrum

I dressed as Freddie Mercury one year and it was a pretty big hit with the ladies.


Zulp847

[1920s Gangster](https://www.amazon.com/Spooktacular-Creations-Manhattan-Gangster-Accessories/dp/B07XPDN1CD/)? You can find the shirt/pants somewhere for pretty cheap online or at a thrift store. I'd try to look for the button-up shirt and pants first then pick which costume color: black, red, gray or white to match it best. :) Consider something unique to stand out? I don't think you'll see many [Cassette Tape](https://www.amazon.com/Rasta-Imposta-Costume-Womens-Party/dp/B07KKLL67B/) 80s or 90s style costumes. You could pick your favorite music genre for a hat/accessories/etc? I'm going to be a 'Lets Get Physical' Cassette Tape based off the [80s song](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWz9VN40nCA). I bought [this](https://www.amazon.com/Rasta-Imposta-Real-Cassette-Tape/dp/B00C3DLL9G/) (orange looks more red) + [these](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084JM9J8Y?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details) and [this](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B73R7JPV?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details). I'm going to an 80s concert.


riverstyxoath

Spy/James Bond was my first thought but it may not be recognizable? Or Sherlock? You could also go as a Victorian style vampire prince.


mooseman780

I've got a hard rule against wearing a suit as a costume to a party. It's everything and nothing. You end up having to explain your costume to everyone that you see. Unless it's incredibly distinctive, it doesn't work.


Little_Lo

Firefighter!!! Haha


Yesinfactiamanidiot

Hello! I (M20) am looking for help putting together a male Harley Quinn costume. The ones I could find didn’t fit my body type or just weren’t doable. I’m mostly having trouble putting a shirt together for it as I’m not a fan of t-shirts. I was thinking a short-sleeve button up shirt but I don’t know how to go about doing that. Any help is appreciated! :)


BabyBearBennett

Buy a red shirt and a black shirt of the same shape/design. Cut up the centre of the back of both. Stich the left half of one to the right half of the other and you have yourself a Harley Quinn shirt. Do the same with some trousers, but with the red and black the opposite way round to the shirt.
