DIY Halloween Costume Ideas for Guys That Won’t Make You Look Like a Douchebag 

DIY Halloween Costume Ideas for Guys That Won’t Make You Look Like a Douchebag 

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. 

However, if you do find yourself sucked into a couples’ costume, here are some Super Badass and Sexy Halloween Costumes for Couples. 

Halloween Candy Sucks for Kids Trick-or-Treating in Some States Says Ibotta

Halloween Candy Sucks for Some Kids Trick-or-Treating in Some States Says Ibotta

 

by Guest blogger: Angela Cavallari Walker

If you are lucky enough to live in Oregon, Washington, New Jersey, Utah or California Halloween will be sweet this year, according to data from the shopping app, Ibotta.

If you happen to live in Georgia, or Alabama you stand to get screwed royally when it comes to your annual candy haul. Gird your loins—Charlie Brown you are getting half the rocks. Worse than that…freaking Michigan was also on the stingy candy list. I mean, hasn’t that state suffered enough with shitty water?

The findings were based on looking at candy sales from the prior Halloween candy purchases back in the good ol’ days of 2015 and 2016.

For several generations, Halloween has become a rite-of-passage and the amount and what kind of candy you scored is treated as universal currency among kids. Ibotta’s latest findings just go to show that not much has changed even today.

At the end of the night, plastic buckets, pillowcases, and sponsored bags hanging on by one broken plastic handle were dumped into a large pile.

Back in the day, I couldn’t give away a pack of Beechum’s gum, dark licorice or that awful orange and black-wrapped taffy candies that were made of petroleum and children’s tears. I went to work sorting anything with a silver wrapper the fastest since chocolate was considered the gold standard of candy currency.

This ritual continues to play out even today in the less traditional count rooms of carpeted floors and tabletops. The same candy is still un-tradeable, chocolate still reigns as the most valuable confection and getting a toothbrush is the equivalent of getting a rock. 

 

Super Badass and Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas for Couples 

Super Badass and Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas for Couples 

It’s early October and Halloween party invites are already flying out. This year, I’m attending a costumed soiree as a plus-one with a girl I’ve been dating for about three months—give or take. Adding to my fear of picking a douchey costume is that this party is at her boss’ house, it’s a charity event and couples are expected to arrive in couples’ costumes. No pressure, right?

I have spent the last 72 hours agonizing over sites such as Party City and eBay  (as instructed by my girl/date) to find the most clever costume. Some of the stupidest and downright dickhead ideas have popped up during my search. 

What guy wants to be a fucking light socket or two sunny-side up eggs? How about walking around as a piece of shit? Yes, there is actually a costume where you can pair up with your partner going as a roll of toilet paper. Thanks for nothing, internet. 

But hey, my loss of time is your gain. I haven’t quite narrowed it down to what we will be wearing, but I can tell you it’s not a bar of soup with my girl going as a loofah. Plus, I do want her to look hot as hell if that’s possible. 

Here’s my super badass list of Halloween costume ideas for couples…you’re welcome. 

—Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio. I’m a huge Yankees fan, so I have zero issue with wearing my favorite ball cap. If you’re not a huge Yankees fan then skip to the other suggestions. 

—James Bond and Bond Girl. Is there anything more badass than James Bond? Black dress pants fitted black jacket and a bowtie. Don’t forget to add a martini glass and 007 badges. Have some fun deciding on her outfit. Bond girls are smokin’. 

—Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. Nothing easier than donning all black and a guitar. June Carter’s dresses were cute and hot in a girl-next-door sort of way. 

—Hugh Heffner and Playboy Bunny. A tip of a hat to the late Hef and is there anything sexier than a Playboy bunny. Plus you can wear it later for some Cosplay. 

I Dream of Genie and Major Nelson (Master). You wear a blue suit and she rocks a sexy mid-drift carrying around a bottle. 

—Bob Ross and a Happy Little Trees Painting. Blue denim shirt, a palette, brush, wig and a dream. Your girl can go as a tree or cut out a hole in a crappy painting and she can stick her face in the center. 

I’m out of ideas at this point, so feel free to share yours.
