2016 Halloween Costume Ideas for Men

In every man’s life, there comes a time when they have to make a huge decision, “What costume should I get for Halloween this year?” This decision usually comes down to the reaction they wish to get from their friends, family and kids while wearing their Halloween costume. From scary to hilarious, historical to fantasy, the type of costume a man will wear will correlate to the reaction he wishes to receive.

So ditch the sports themed costume-look (since you likely wear that gear every weekend in the Fall), and check out our list of the top 10 men’s Halloween costumes for 2016.

Suicide Squad Costumes

One can never go wrong wearing a costume from a comic book. Especially when that comic book hits the big screen, as Suicide Squad did in August of 2016. The characters from that film become ultra-popular with comic book fans during Halloween.
