Don a Zuckerberg / Gates / Steve Jobs Costume
Geeks are in this Halloween! Get costumes of these three famous computer geniuses - Apple figurehead Steve Jobs, Facebook inventor Mark Zuckerberg, and Microsoft mogul Bill Gates. Going to the party with friends? Why not go as the whole geek gang. Want to pay homage to the just recently resigned Apple CEO? Then don his favorite turtleneck and rubber shoes outfit.

Steve Jobs Costume - The Apple Guy's Trademark Outfit
I've never seen Steve Jobs of the recent years dress up in anything other than his favorite black mock turtleneck (by St. Croix), round-framed eyeglasses, Levi's 501 jeans, and New Balance shoes. The outfit has been ingrained in the memories of most people, so people will very quickly recognize who you are a mile away! His turtleneck is not very tight on him, and it's tucked inside a pair of straight-cut Levi's 501 jeans (no belt). He wears black socks and a pair of New Balance shoes (the exact model is M991 but the M992 looks almost the same).
He has a balding head with just a very short patch of gray hair at the back and a couple of facial hair on the chin but you can also consider coming as the younger version of Steve Jobs; in which case, you need a nice brown wig.
For the final touch, consider carrying an iPod or other Apple gadget on your hand.
To the right is a diagram of a Steve Jobs outfit. Below are the costume staples you need.
Steve Jobs Costume for Women
Women can get in on the Steve Jobs costume craze as well and profess their love for his genius mind! Get yourself a chic looking black turtleneck sweater and pair over a nice pair of bootcut jeans (two elements you can use on normal days!) then for the fun factor, wear an old lady wig.
Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs
Cheers to the Visionary
Steve Jobs was not only a genius. He was a visionary. He was a leader. When I wrote this article initially, it was just a day after he announced his resignation and I was certain that a lot of people were going to celebrate him through Halloween costumes, which is why I wrote this article. Now the reason to celebrate him is even more compelling.
Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs. Sporting Young Jobs' facial hair, and 21st Century Jobs' Glasses
Ashton Kutcher stars the Steve Jobs Biopic - From Three and a Half Men to Apple.
"Dude where's my Car?" star / Punk'd creator, Ashton Kutcher, will be the late Apple visionary in the upcoming Steve Jobs movie tribute. What do you guys think of the casting? The movie staff said that not only could he physically look like Steve Jobs, he can also handle the psychological intricacies of the role. Seems like Ashton needs to fill some big (New Balance) shoes, don't you think?
Will Ashton do a good job of portraying Steve Jobs?
Mark Zuckerberg Costume - The Facebook Founder is still Young at Heart
One of the youngest famous geeks (and billionaires), he still has that college look to him, which makes him a fun person to dress up as. His most defining characteristic is his curly carrot top. There aren't any wigs out there that look exactly like it, so I suggest getting one of the wigs I show below, trimming it up a bit, and use a bit of orange dye on it (not too much! You don't want to attract TOO much attention at the costume party). You can wear a Harvard hoodie or a Facebook shirt, then pair it with a pair of jeans and, of course, a pair of Adidas sandals.
Jesse Eisenberg meets Mark Zuckerberg - The actor meets the billionaire
In the recently shown, Oscar-nominated "The Social Network", the cute Jesse Eisenberg played the billionaire, and Jesse gets an unexpected surprise when he meets Mark himself. Check out the encounter below! "Awkberg!"
Bill Gates Costume - The Microsoft Chairman
Bill Gates' outfit is more business traditional. He's normally seen in a business suit or wearing a pullover over a dress shirt with some dress pants, a professional looking belt, and some business formal shoes. To get the point across you can also stick a Microsoft logo on your pullover, or wear a Microsoft shirt instead.

"Geek" ain't a bad thing
The rising trend
Geek. Nerd. Dork. What's the difference? For one thing, the latter two have more of a negative connotation, while the word "geek" implies more on a person who is so adept in the field of computers or someone who is eccentrically devoted to a certain thing. And if your devotion leads to inventions and developments, fame and fortune, how bad can that be?
With hit shows like "Big Bang Theory" and the "IT Crowd", it's safe to say that the "geek trend" is continuously on the rise.
