The Best Halloween Costumes For Men

Updated on August 25, 2012

Traditional Halloween Costumes For Men

Classic Costumes for Men

Classic costumes for men can be scary, ordinary, or even cute and cuddly. But there’s always something about the pirate costume that gets attention. Because no matter what the style or color of the costume, a pirate costume speaks of danger and intrigue and women love a sexy pirate.

You can dress like a swashbuckling hero in costume with the long vest, pants and waist sash. With the dreads, bandana and dark eyeliner, you’ll be the captain of Halloween night.

Speaking of sexy, there’s something about a man in a uniform that just rocks. The men’s police officer costume certainly earns the title of sexy. It generally comes with the hat, belt for attaching the weapon, badge, handcuffs, baton and nametag. The sunglasses and shoes are usually not included.

Fighting fires is a dream that some little boys have and don’t outgrow when they become men. That dream can be a reality for Halloween night with the men’s firefighter costume. The costume usually has plenty of pieces, including the overall pants featuring the reflective lines down the sides. It has the protective overcoat and helmet depicting that this fireman is there to protect and serve.

Men’s military costumes are a great idea for Halloween and you can find costumes for every branch of the service. The men’s white navy sailor costume comes with the military style white pants and shirt as well as the hat and neckpiece. Soldier’s camouflage costumes also make great choices for Halloween wear.

Top gun pilots became popular back in the 80s and as a result, the men’s aviator flight suits are still popular classic costumes for men. These jumpsuits come complete with military insignia patches. There is also a wingman costume available.

Not all flights have military men at the controls and becoming a pilot for Halloween is as easy as donning the pilot’s costume. There are several in this line and they come with a jacket, pants and hat. The jacket is trimmed with gold, has gold buttons down the front and is decorated with flight insignia.

The valiant knight is a costume that has roots in medieval times and has the tunic with hood as well as the sword and shield. Being a prince was as important during medieval times as it is today - and the prince costume features the pants and tailcoat along with the sash across the coat. The royal Prince Charming costume is also available and a big hit at costume parties, especially when Cinderella is there, too!

The Scariest Halloween Costumes For Men

Horror Costumes for Men

If shivers and shrieks are your idea of Halloween fun, then horror costumes for men offer the perfect solution for your costume idea. Dark, shrouded figures always strike fear in the heart of anyone who sees them.

With the horror robe, you’re going to get plenty of startled screams. The hood of this costume is missing the face. This way you can see, but you’re completely covered, so no one can see a face. It’s very chilling.

The Grim Reaper is another costume that rules the spooky hi-jinks that take place on Halloween night. With the dark hooded cape, skeletal mask of terror and the long blade sickle, this costume will definitely part the crowds as people hurry the other way.

The Zombie costumes are deliciously icky, the kind of costume you can’t help but stare at. There are even some that are 3-D and so lifelike you’ll be sorry you ever saw it. This costume is an outfit of shirt and pants that are torn and dirty like the character has clawed his way up from the ground.

The costume shows off the body’s rotting organs and is open right down to the bones of the knee and thigh. Also in the Zombie line is the costume that shows the figure as having partial skeletal remains.

One of the scariest, ugliest costumes is the torture mask featuring eyes and mouth pulled back by steel fasteners. Definitely not a face you want to see at dark. The black suit costume from American Horror Story is another very frightening look for Halloween night.

The Headless Horseman is still a popular horror costume, and you can find ones with long black capes, the vest and shoulders that will puff up to hide your own head and face. The Creepy Carnival is another costume that offers a spooky appearance. This one has two masks - one that's for creating the extra long nose and one that’s for the jutting jaw. The gloves look like long, spindly tree limbs.

The monster skull costume is a picture of fright with the mouth and tendons distorted in a frozen scream. The Hellraiser costume has the clothes, mask and gloves to give this outfit an authentic, frightening look.

The werewolf mask costume is something no one would want to encounter it’s that scary. If you want to spend a little extra, you can get the movie quality one that has the mouth that really moves up and down. Costumes from the Rocky Horror movie as well as from the Saw movie are also available. Freddy Krueger costumes can be bought and these are a nightmare on any street!
