2019 Update: We've updated adding new costumes and groups.

“What are you gonna be for Halloween?” It’s a hard enough question to answer for yourself sometimes, but it can be nearly impossible to decide when you are looking for Halloween costume ideas for friends.  BUT – you have to think of all the advantages that go with a group costume: awesome photo opportunities that are sure to be good enough for a picture frame (or Facebook profile picture), you’ll be a shoo-in for costume contests, and you’ll never lose your friends at a crowded party.  Still not sure what to dress up as? Don’t fret, we here at HalloweenCostumes.com have put together an awesome guide to help you find group costume themes with enough characters...

Costume Ideas for Dudes with Beards: The Ultimate Resource!

by |August 14, 2019

Beards are for Dudes

2019 Update: This post was originally published in October 2014, but has been updated for relevancy and to add more beards.

What do you do when you have a big old beard and you’re trying to come up with a Halloween costume with a beard? You use it, of course! Embrace that facial hair and let it be part of your ensemble. There’s no reason you need to shave just for Halloween, just get a costume for dudes with beards and you're set! No matter if you have a little stubble, a fine mustache, a long goatee, or a long flowing beard, there’s a costume choice for you. We spent some time combing through the farthest reaches of the internet for inspiration for all you whiskered gentlemen. (There are only so many times guys with beards can put on a dress for a bearded lady costume!) We're looking to create real costumes with real beards! (Maybe someday you can find funny beard costumes or costumes for beards!) The sky is the limit here.

2019 Update: We've updated this post to include newer costumes and group ideas.

A lot of the best things in life come in groups of five, and they can give you some great costume ideas! The Jackson 5, for example, had five members. (Ben Folds Five didn’t, but they were still good.) Other notables: the high-five, five senses, the number of piano concertos by Beethoven, the five-second rule, and the movie The Fifth Element. Another great thing that can come in a group of five? Halloween...

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

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!
