The Hipster Doctor

Want to be the coolest guy in the party? Then you need a doctor’s coat and stethoscope. Put on some man bun and beard, throw on a plaid shirt, tight jeans and sandals (because it’s summer). And don’t forget your guitar!

Frat Bro

This is a really good costume for college boys, because it’s easy to get and you only need to buy one thing: a backwards hat. You can also wear sunglasses, but if you’re not comfortable with that then just go without them—it doesn’t matter too much either way. When you’re wearing this costume, all that matters is that you talk like a frat bro.

So what does it mean when I say “talk like a frat boy”? Well, first of all, don’t worry about being politically correct; use whatever language makes sense in the situation (i.e., if someone asks how their day was at work or school then they’d probably appreciate something along the lines of “It was alright”). Also remember to say things like “bro” every now and again—this is essential!

Tall Guy

If you’re a tall guy, you should be happy about it. It’s the rarest of privileges to be able to reach for things that others can’t reach for. You probably have no idea how much time and effort I’ve spent in my life just trying to get something on top of the highest shelf at Target.

You should also take advantage of this opportunity by dressing up as a giant character from pop culture or history. There are many options here, so pick one that will make people do double-takes when they look at you—like Gulliver! Or Abraham Lincoln! Or King Kong! It’s totally okay if people don’t recognize your particular costume right away; they’ll get it eventually—not only because it’s fun but also because they’ll want an excuse to talk with someone who looks like such an imposing figure of strength and stature (and yes, these are words I’m using correctly).


This costume is simple and to the point. The focus is on the bench, which will take some time to make but is a fun project that you can do with your friends. You will need to make the bench out of wood, so it’s important to find some sturdy boards that fit together well and have an even thickness throughout the entire length of wood. The pillow should be about 3 feet long for maximum comfort when sitting down or lying back on it.

Too Much Shirt

  • Too much shirt is a college boy’s best friend.
  • Too much shirt is versatile.
  • Too much shirt is always in fashion.
  • Too much shirt is like a blank canvas in which you can paint your own best halloween costume, with the added bonus of not having to actually paint anything!
  • Too much shirt also means that you won’t be too hot if it’s warm out, or too cold if it’s cold out (if you live somewhere that gets both warm and cold weather). That makes it great for all kinds of weather, which means you’ll be able to wear this great halloween costume all year round! And if someone asks where they can get one themselves? You can just say: “Get whatever size will fit around my neck.”

Frat Guy With Beer Can

Want to dress up as a frat guy? Then this is the costume for you! All you need is a t-shirt and baseball cap with your fraternity’s letters on it, some jeans, sneakers, and a beer can. Top it off with a college jacket to really sell the look.

Same T-Shirt (Boys)

For this costume, all you need is a simple T-shirt and a pair of jeans. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can even consider making your own shirt! Just make sure to pick one that’s small enough that it is tight across the chest. The text on the front should be something relevant, like maybe “I’m not drunk…I’m just intoxicated by your beauty.”

Don’t forget: when people ask what you are wearing, tell them a funny joke!

The Rookie

This costume is perfect for a sports fan. You can wear any jersey you want, of any sport, with any name and number. It’s also a great idea to pick up a fake MVP trophy and have someone take pictures of you holding it as your buddy takes a selfie in front of the camera. If you’re not into sports, this costume works equally well with an astronaut suit or shirtless firefighter gear—you get the idea!

Mayonnaise Halloween Costume For Boys

This costume is so simple it’s stupid. It takes less than five minutes to put together, and you’ll look like a total idiot in the process. If you’re going to be the most hated person at the party, make sure they know it’s on purpose!

Here’s what you need:

  • A white T-shirt with a collar (You want something long enough to cover your neck and chest.)
  • Mayo or Miracle Whip (Or any other kind of mayonnaise substitute will work fine.)
  • Paper towels or napkins


This costume is relatively cheap to put together, and it comes with a bonus in that you get to be a lumberjack. What’s not to love?

For the lumberjack look, you’re going to want your costume to be as flannel-y as possible—that means lots of long sleeves and plaids. You might also consider adding some suspenders and maybe even some worn-in boots (make sure they’re not high heels!). If you have access to a chain saw or any other tools used by lumberjacks for logging, those will make for great accessories too!

College boys need to be creative with their Halloween costumes.

College boys need to be creative with their Halloween costumes. It’s a time when you can get away with doing something different and not worry about what your parents will say. This doesn’t mean that you have to wear a costume that is outdated or inappropriate, but it does mean that you should always make sure that you are comfortable in what you’re wearing.

If you want to stay away from the same old thing, but still want to be able to wear something unique on Halloween night, here are some ideas for college boys:
