12. Forrest Gump: Halloween is like a box of chocolates — you don’t know which Forrest Gump you’re gonna get. Go the “run, Forrest, run” route with a pair of red shorts and a mega beard or find yourself a Lieutenant Dan. (via Catch All Culture + Brit + Co)

15. Star-Lord: Your man may not be Chris Pratt, but he can totally rock the red leather jacket and Walkman. (via Brit + Co)

16. T-Rex: Living out the night as a dinosaur is every five-year-old’s dreams, and nothing says you can’t finally do it as an adult. (via Brit + Co)


17. Cardboard Robots: He probably needs to start planning this one now (like, where is he going to get all the cardboard?), but the results are well worth it. (via Tell Love and Party)

18. Peter Pan: Every house hermit will welcome the opportunity to wear moccasins outside in an un-ironic fashion. (via Brit + Co)

20. La Croix Boy: The chocker completes the look, so make sure he doesn’t forget to wear his. The sleeveless tie-dye shirt isn’t optional, either. (via Brit + Co)

21. Black Panther: It takes a confident man to wear a skintight bodysuit all evening. Let alone to go out as a black cat. (via Brit + Co)


22. Carpool Karaoke: The gag only works if he wears a giant car all evening, but think of the fun you’ll have walking down the street together as other people try to “climb in.” (via Brit + Co)

28. Dumb & Dumber: The oh-so-frilly tuxedo you found at the thrift store needs to finally make a grand entrance. (via Brit + Co)

29. Mickey Mouse: Will you be going as Minnie? (via Brit + Co)

30. Netflix & Chill: When he steps out with you, it makes sense. As a bachelor on the prowl, it gives him the chance to make an evening out of any encounter. (via Brit + Co)

31. The Beast: This outfit only really works when you and the squad dress up as Disney princesses, but a single guy could probably slay the game with a fur beanie. (via Brit + Co)

32. Jack Skellington: It’s time to paint that cheap black suit and consult a tutorial for skeleton makeup. (via Brit + Co)

33. Royals: For the guy who thinks he’s already the king of the place, why not complete the illusion? (via Brit + Co)
