Favorite TV and movie characters are always great hits when searching for Halloween costumes for boys. The Transformers movie was always a favorite and boys love everything associated with these special robots that saved mankind. You can find all of the Transformers costumes from Bumblebee to Optimus Prime to the villain Megatron.
Bringing the magic to Halloween are the costumes that show the characters from the much-loved Harry Potter movies. With the round glasses and the lightning bolt scar on the forehead, boys can dress as the star of the movies.
Adding the robe like Harry wore and topping the white shirt with the tie decorated with the Gryffindor pin will make any boy feel like he’s trick or treating straight from class at Hogwarts.
The Toy Story characters are still popular year after year and you can find all the loved character costumes such as Buzz or Woody and even the funny Mr. Potato Head. One favorite for little boys is the Rex character, because then they get to be a ferocious dinosaur.
While plenty of boys want a pirate costume for Halloween, many of them are looking to be just like Jack Sparrow and claim the treasures of the Halloween night! Some of the costumes aren’t so lighthearted, such as the Ghost Face costume with the white face frozen in a perpetual scream. You can purchase these costumes with the regular scream, the Zombie face or the mask with the bleeding face.
The Spongebob costumes for boys are tunics with the bright yellow character who always manages to make kids laugh. The Shrek costume from the movie by the same name has a pair of pants like the character wore plus the shirt, short vest and the facemask.
G.I. Joe, Rise of the Cobra inspired the boy’s Halloween costume of Snake Eyes. This character was wildly popular because of all the secrecy surrounding his true identity and because of his martial arts mastery.
The costume features the same style jumpsuit as well as the hood with the narrowed visor allowing the character to see but keeping others from seeing his face. Another favorite also inspired by a movie is the Incredible Hulk.
Green and muscled, this costume has the torn pants look as good as the mask. One trick you can use to completely transform any boy into this character is to use green Halloween face paint on the feet to match the shade of the Hulk’s green body.
The costumes associated with the Batman and Spiderman movies are popular this year because of the sell out movies associated with these heroes. And anyone associated with the Avengers movies will be a huge hit among the younger boys.
