The 26 Most Iconic Character Beards Ever

26 Most Iconic Beards Ever

A beard really makes the character. Would Santa be so jolly without his white-as-snow whiskers? Would Mr. T be so intimidating without his full goatee and sideburns? And can you even imagine Jack Sparrow at ALL without picturing him twirling his facial hair as he stumbled about? No. We love thinking about Halloween costumes for dudes with beards, and, frankly, we can’t get enough of it. Here is our list of the characters with the most iconic beards EVER. We’ve selected only fictional bearded characters (sorry Abe Lincoln and Bob Ross), and this list is in no particular order.

Skeleton Face Makeup Tutorial

Skeleton Face Makeup Tutorial

We feel like skeletons are in the big ten for classic Halloween costumes. You know the group: witch, ghost, vampire, etc. Skeletons are just so iconic for the holiday, but there are a ton of different ways you can go with the look. Day of the Dead, minimal, super realistic, we’re even sure there are a few jaunty skeletons out there to dress as! However, our current favorite is a mix of casual, realistic, and just a teensy bit scary. Heading to a party where you don’t wanna go full out literal costume, but you still want to make sure everyone knows you love Halloween? This look is for you!

5 Rules for Shopping for a Tween Halloween Costume

If you’re a mom or a dad at your wit’s end thinking about how hard it is to make your tween happy… just remember what it was like to BE a tween. It really isn’t the most fun. You’re starting to come into your own and develop your more mature personality, but you’re still young enough that much of your life and surroundings aren’t in your control. Being patient, listening, and having a thick skin are some key pieces of advice for those who go out shopping with their tween. And don’t forget: for a pre-teenager, appearance is just as important on Halloween as it is any other day. You have to let them choose what they want the most, but they can’t forget that it should be mostly ok with mom and dad. Still not sure how to go about this?

Have a Roaring Halloween with these 1920s Outfits

Of all the Halloween costume ideas and themes there are, we think that the Roaring 20s is one of the best! What isn’t there to love?!

Sentient Vehicles: 25 Cars, Trucks, Buses, Bikes, and Trains That Can Think On Their Own [Infographic]

Sentient Vehicles Header

The concept of a vehicle that can act on its own has been around for decades. Movies and TV shows have often featured these characters with varying degrees of sentience, from cars that can talk and sing and interact with humans to other vehicles who are portrayed merely as self-driving, with no other personality traits. With both Cars 3 and Transformers: The Last Knight in theaters this month, there was no better time than now to create this infographic which features 25 of our very favorite sentient vehicles, dating all the way back to 1941. We’ve included Lightning McQueen and Optimus Prime, of course, but we're also sure to mention some lesser-known vehicles, such as a vampire motorcycle and a murderous semi-truck.

DIY Babadook Pride Costume and Makeup Tutorial

Babadook Meme Costume for Pride

If someone told you a few weeks ago that the Babadook would become the most popular symbol of 2017's Pride Month, you wouldn't have believed them. But, if the past year and a half has taught you a single lesson, literally ANYTHING can happen. Thank goodness for us, this time that "anything" was something incredible. The Babadook is a horror movie released in 2014 about a single mother and her kid being tormented by a storybook character. Pride is a celebration of LGBT rights, love, and acceptance. So, why is the Babadook a gay icon? Well, many reports say that Netflix accidentally added the film to their LGBT section, and as the internet is known to do, the joke took off. Whether that origin story is true or not, we don’t really care, because we love the Babadook’s new inclusion at Pride events around the country. Since we are HalloweenCostumes.com, and this is too amazing to not take part in, we created our own DIY Babadook costume perfect for you to wear to Pride or for Halloween this year.
