Good Men’s Costumes fall into four main categories but they all have one thing in common: fulfilling a lady’s fantasy. The great costumes combine two or more of them.
Uniform Variation – Sports Figure:
Arriving at the party as a Roman centurion, pirate or gunfighter is rarely a mistake. What woman can resist the advances of a dashing vampire or play Maid Marianne to your brooding Robin Hood (but beware the green tights!)? The right costume in this category suggests to a woman she can expect a night of adventure that may include both swashing and buckling. Gangsters (the 1930’s type) are also a hit with the dames, but avoid Gangsta’s and Pimps.
Mistakes: The humorous variations that draw attention to your cock. Put the junk away until the time is right.
The realm of popular culture is rife with excellent costume choices, but you have to be smart about it. Don’t pick a figure so obscure you have to spend the whole night explaining that you’re not Legolas but some another elf from Lord of the Rings. In fact, stay away from the whole Sci-Fi world entirely. Your best bet is to pick a character that also incorporates one of the above categories. For example:
Pirate? Try Captain Jack Sparrow.
Pilot? Try Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell
Gladiator? Try “Gladiator”
Get the idea?
This is a tricky category. As many guys know, what seems hilarious to a man can be gross, immature, stupid or offensive to a woman. As stated above, avoid any costume that obviously demonstrates you have a penis and intend to use it before the sun comes up, with or without a partner. Wearing one of the many costume disasters below will guarantee you will have a year to regret your Halloween selection all by yourself.
But all is not lost. A funny costume can get the right lady to fall for you but it has to be clever. As we have stated, the best costumes combine the elements of the other categories:
Historical Figures: Hugh Hefner or one of the Beetles
Fantasy: Spiderman or Batman
