Halloween is a great time for guys to not only be social and meet new people but also demonstrate their wit, humor, and confidence through a costume.
One major reason I love Halloween is because it’s one of the few times in the year (maybe the only time) when adults can express their personalities in such an attention-getting way and still be socially acceptable. Plus, who doesn’t like to dress up and have fun?
Some Halloween costumes increase your attractiveness and make women want to get to know you more. Some stand out in a positive way and are a great way to start conversations. It is a great way to meet new people, including friends and potential date interests.
Of course, you can also pick costumes that are duds and make you look goofy and weird. You want women to laugh at your costume, but not at you for your terrible choices. And, you don’t want them to think you’re truly a creep.
Below are some of the best costumes for guys (if you need a costume, check out the cool selection at Amazon). They will make you look good and allow you to have fun.
It never hurts to go as an authority figure of some type. Sometimes you’ll actually be admired and considered attractive even though everyone clearly knows it’s a costume. Uniforms make a guy look really attractive to women. Numerous studies show women are attracted to power and your costume can tap into that.
The authority figure costumes can include being a cop, a Roman emperor, a firefighter, a judge, a soldier, etc. You can even be creative if that involves power and authority. Going as Donald Trump would fit this, and may be just controversial and funny enough to get plenty of attention, especially given the recent election.
Bonus points: Get into your role by “arresting people,” making Caesaresque pronouncements, using Trumpian phrases, etc. Just don’t get too into it that you’re the one getting hauled off to the slammer. And, be willing to laugh at yourself in the process.
Women do have a certain fondness for bad boys. Even if they’d never date them, there’s definitely an allure. Just like they enjoying watching the bad boy on the TV, if you can dress up as a bad boy or villain, you’ll get those feelings going for you, even if you’re really a pretty good guy.
Halloween is the time to let loose and show your bad side (in a safe and non-threatening way). Bad boy costumes include convicts, vampires, pimps, movie villains (like the Joker), etc.
Bonus points: Be scary and bad in your role. But, don’t go full creepy. No one likes that. Again, keeping it funny and friendly is important if you’re going for the more evil/bad costume angle.
The Funny, Creative, Or Outrageous
These are high risk, high reward ventures. If you can pull off something unique, fun, and creative and everyone gets it and appreciates it, you are the man. However, if it falls flat, is too obscure, too girly, or even creepy, then you’ll look like a tool or “one of the girls.”
Bonus points: You pick something that makes the ladies want to pose with you for pictures.
Be creative and think about interesting things you value from your life. If it’s something others will get and find cool, even better. Dig deep and give it your best!
So, here are a few great Halloween costume ideas for guys. Pick carefully. It’ll help your social life if you choose the best Halloween costume.
And, get yourself out to a Halloween party or event. Be brave and talk to a lot of women. Don’t let Halloween go by without taking full advantage of the holiday
