2. Day of the Dead Senor Bones

Mexico’s “Dia de los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead” is an annual celebration of deceased ancestors, celebrating their lives with parades, parties and a unique fancy dress theme. The festival has become famous worldwide, with its cool costume appearance now being a big hit for Halloween. There’s no denying the painted-on sugar skull face looks brilliant and this Senor Bones costume will suit you perfectly for the theme.

3. Voodoo Dapper Skeleton

This Voodoo Dapper Skeleton Costume reminds us of the voodoo villain Baron Samedi from the James Bond: Live and Let Die movie. The eerie make-up and clothing of a mysterious voodoo tribesman will send shivers down the spine of your Halloween party guests and we think it’s one of the best-looking men’s Halloween costumes around. Accompany your costume with some bones and voodoo death artefacts!

4. Freddy Krueger

Men’s Halloween costumes can’t get any better than Freddy Krueger – a Halloween movie classic that’s had so many re-makes we’ve lost count. The scarred-face serial killer uses his sharp claw glove to kill his victims in their dreams, which also causes them to die in real life – if that doesn’t keep you up at night, we don’t know what will! His terrifying persona perfectly fits the Halloween theme and the other party guests will be freaked out, especially if they’re a child of the 1970s or 1980s! This Freddy Krueger costume portrays his appearance really well.
