Some guys can wear about anything and look cool and the rest of us might fail miserably and end up looking like a jack-off. This can be especially true if your girlfriend or partner is trying to pick out a couple’s costume—more on that later.
Here are some costumes that are perfect for guys that still want to look cool this Halloween and are douchebag resistent.
Burt Reynolds: This costume is not only easy but pays homeage to The Bandit that we lost this year. To get this look you need a red button-down shirt, jeans, cowboy boots, a cowboy hat and that iconic black stache. If you have trouble growing sideburns or a full stache, you are better off buying a kit. Otherwise, you can get a jump start on Movember and get growing. You may have to fill it in with temp hairdye if you don’t have jet-black hair. Slap on a pair of mirrored aviators and—BOOM!
The Dude: This one is perhaps one of the most comfortable costumes you could wear and who doesn’t love The Big Lebowski and white russians? Stop trimming your beard and allow it to get scraggly, stop washing that white v-neck t-shirt and pick up a long, striped robe. Pair it with pajama pants and slippers and you are ready to go. Don’t forget the white russian and wear that robe open. You know, sloppy.
James Bond: Got a tuxedo or black suit hanging in your closet? Well, then you’ve got a James Bond costume already. Don’t forget the black bowtie, a martini glass and the phony 007 firearm-just be careful where you point that thing.
Vampire: This classic costume never goes out of style and most girls find vampires sexy ever since Interview with the Vampire got them hot. This one is fairly simple. Grab a cape from a costume store, rock with a pair of dress pants, a white button-down shirt and a little fake blood, white powder for your face and fangs.
Bob Ross: Channel the late artist and his happy little trees with this easy costume. You will need an afro wig (available online and at most costume stores), a blue, button-down denim shirt, a pair of jeans and a paint brush and a palette (available at Michael’s craft store or online).
Resevoir Dogs: This iconic Tarantino film is easy to pull off. You just need a pair of black slacks, a black jacket (worn open), a slim black tie, a white button-down shirt, and black Ray Ban glasses. This costume look is best accomplished by getting your crew together in the same outfit.
