Top 10 Halloween Costumes 2009: Guys

It's almost that time of year again where witches fly through the air, ghosts come out of hiding and scary parties are held all over the world. Just like the fashion industry, Halloween costumes come in trends; what was cool last year may not go down so well in 2009 (though there are some get-ups that remain timeless year in year out). That's why we're presenting the Top 10 Halloween Costumes 2009: Guys.


No. 10: Mummy

Mummy Costume

Kind of scary but not too much, mummy costumes are great for guys because they're simple, all-in-one-type costumes. Whether you use a pre-made costume or wrap yourself in toilet paper or gauze bandages, all you really need to complete the mummy look are a pair of white kicks and maybe some gray face and hands makeup for that "just risen from the sarcophagus" look!

No. 9: Vampire

Vampire Costume

With the huge popularity of the Twilight saga, it's no wonder one of the hottest costumes this Halloween is the vampire. There are so many vampire looks you could go for - from a classic vampire to one that's gone little punk - we suggest you pick your fave vampire from a book or movie and try to copy that look. Besides the standard black cape and fangs all you need to add is makeup to look undead and maybe even some flashy jewelry to complete your vampire costume!

No. 8: Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider Costume

This is a popular costume that goes along with the 2007 film starring Nicholas Cage. Along with a half-mask and jacket you'll need black jeans, boots and makeup on half of your face where the mask leaves off, to give you that skeletal look from the Ghost Rider movie.

No. 7: Goth Guy

Goth Guy Costume

If you're planning on going trick-or-treating or spending Halloween with your girlfriend, why not dress up as a couple? For your half of the costume, think about dressing up as an undead ghoul in fancy party clothes (ripped and torn, of course). Add scuffed shoes and makeup to achieve that living-dead look. An old-looking top hat and cane will finish off the costume.

No. 6: Indiana Jones

Indiana Jones Costume

Action heroes are always popular and good ol' Indy never goes out of style! There are many types of Indiana Jones costumes available that come with the simplest jacket and hat to a full costume including pants, shirt, jacket and hat. All you need to add are a few accessories that any adventurer would be likely to carry: a whip, sunglasses, a canteen and a bag to carry treasure in. You don't really need much makeup to accomplish the Indiana Jones look but you might want to add a bit of green-brown grease paint on your face - it'll make you look like you've just finished crawling through a cave in search of lost treasure.

No. 5: Army Soldier

Army Soldier Costume

The classic army costume is something that never goes out of style. Noble and patriotic, a good soldier costume should include a uniform suit and hat. You'll have to add the combat boots and maybe even some medals for heroic acts. Costumes usually come in either desert camo, olive drab and urban camo grey. You won't need much makeup to finish off this costume - unless you want to add camo paint to the face. It doesn't need much accessorizing either.

No. 4: Olympian

Olympian Costume

This is a fun Halloween costume because it shows that a) you're looking forward to the upcoming Winter Olympic Games to be held in Vancouver, Canada early in 2010 and b) it's your chance to show off your fave sport or athlete to everyone you meet on Halloween. Whatever type of athlete or sport you choose to represent, don't forget the medal - will you be winning bronze, silver or gold?

No. 3: Oscar The Grouch

Oscar The Grouch Costume

Sesame Street is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and - like it or not - get-ups mimicking the characters from the famous kids' show are going to be dominating the Halloween costume scene this year. Our fave for guys is the Oscar The Grouch costume - complete with garbage can! You can use a real can or a cardboard version - a metal garbage can might be handy for holding some of your candy but we're guessing it'll get pretty heavy after a while.

No. 2: Rapper

Rapper Costume

Even if rap music isn't really your thing, it could be fun to dress up as a rapper this Halloween. Think baggy jeans, an oversized shirt and some ridiculous bling around your neck. Or, try and emulate one of your fave hip-hop stars - new or old. How about Flavor Flav with a gigantic clock around your neck and a viking hat perched on your head or MC Hammer with his signature baggy pants?

No. 1: Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson Costume

Lots of kids this year are likely going to be paying tribute to one of the greatest pop stars of all time - Michael Jackson - who tragically died earlier in 2009. Since MJ went through many stages (and faces) throughout his life, you can choose to represent a young Michael who sang with his brothers in The Jackson 5 or even a scary zombie Michael from his famous Thriller video.

    Twisted visions. Dirty lies. No one knows the truth. That lies deep inside. The pain you hide. All day and night. It burns you. Hurts you.  Slowly, Killing you. You hide it best you can. Smile and say it's okay. But really. It's another lie. Another smudge. Inside your mind. You smile though. Keeping hope. But every day. Second by second. It goes away. And at night. There is only despair. Tearing out your hair. You scream at yourself. Why?! Why are you this way?! But when morning comes. You will wash away. All the tears. And all the pain. The lies are dirty. But the truth is dirtier.

I mean your point is fraught with worse problems, but I'm hoping this can be the most relatable.
