There’s a time and a place for respectability, but Halloween sure ain’t it. This is the time of year to slip on your most out-there men’s leggings, release your inner monster and get batshit crazy. Mwwwwahahaha!
If you’re stumped for men’s Halloween outfits, we’ve got you covered. Check these out...
1. FAUX LEATHER BAD BOY OR HELLS ANGEL BIKER
Ditch the Mr Nice Guy and let your inner rebel take the reins. This is the one day of the year you can go mean muggin’ and everybody will applaud you for it. The best way to do that? Faux leather, duderino! These leather men’s leggings are black, they look mad and bad and dangerous, and they’re comfy as hell.

2. URBAN COWBOY
You know what has no place in a Halloween costume? Jeans. But you know what ROCKS a sweet outfit? Jeggings, yo! They look just like the real thing but are ten times as comfortable. Just don’t try to put anything in the pockets because, well, those ain’t real pockets.

3. ROCK’N’ROLL GOD
Most of the baddest rock stars wore leggings. So, slip on some eye-catching Kapows and a pair of battered old converse (or big black boots!) and strut your stuff. Optional extras include makeup, leather and chains. Essential extras include a manic grin and a sick air guitar.
4. WRESTLING HERO
Remember when you were a kid and you’d put on your mom’s tights so you could dress up as your favourite wrestler? No? Er, no, us neither. Anyway, wrestling might be fake, but it’s fun as hell. Which is why throwing on a pair of something bad and bright and dressing up as Macho Man Randy Savage makes total sense. OH YEAH!!!

5. SOLID GOLD OSCAR WINNERS
If you can’t win an Oscar, you can damn sure look like you won an Oscar. By dressing like an Oscar, which means all gold urrthang! There simply is no finer, brighter, shinier way to get all eyes on you.

6. 80’s AEROBIC INSTRUCTOR
If there’s one thing time has proven, it’s that the 80s never go out of style. Go figure! An easy way to do a fast costume is to slap n sme lycra and a headband and bam, you’re an aerobics or jazzercise instructor. Bonus points for big hair, sweatbands, and white trainers.

7. MANGA COSPLAY or LOUNGE LIZARD
Want versatility? You can do a whole bunch with multicolored rainbow tights or black shiny tights. From kaleidoscopic cosplay to shape-changing, color-morphing chameleons, to back-alley bruisers or futuristic robots.

8. STREET THUG or ROBBER
Kapow meggings are made for freedom of movement, which will be essential when you’re running away from the cops after they mistake you for a real robber. If you get away, you’ll be buzzin’ all night long. Get caught… well, hey... at least you’ll have a place to stay for the night. It’s called jail and you’ll fit right in.

The rarest, most noble beast of all. Strangely, your best chance to see a unicorn is on Halloween. How? By becoming one, of course. People are gonna want to take a LOT of selfies with you, so don’t forget the shades. Those new iphone flashes are bright, man.

10.POSEIDON or NEPTUNE
Who can tell the difference? Well, Greek history buffs, for starters, but good luck finding one of them on Halloween. Dress up as a god of the seas and things are bound to get wet and wild. If you’re out on the town and need to connect with the big blue, just find the nearest neighborhood pool to splash around in. It might not be the ocean, but water’s water, right?

11. REBEL or PUNK
People love an outlaw. From Bonnie and Clyde to every Steve McQueen movie ever, there’s something about the bad boy vibe we can’t get enough of. Whack on a pair of shiny leggings for men, or some dangerous tiger stripe meggings and pair with Ray-ban Wayfarers or a ripped denim jacket and you’re halfway there.
Say beetlejuice three times and you’ll be transformed into the ghost with the most, baby. Tim Burton’s most infamous phantom freak is the perfect choice for your Halloween costume and we’ve got the madman’s very own leggings in stock. There’s no end to the costumes you can make with a pair of pin-striped party pleasers, so turn on the juice and see what shakes loose!

13. GIANT MASCOT
Prepare for hugs, especially from screaming happy kids hepped up on all the candy they can carry. Everyone loves a giant mascot! But it’s hot in those big furry heads, so make sure you keep cool with some lightweight, high-stretch leggings for men on the bottom.
14. ROLLER DERBY GUY
Roller blades dated real bad, but you know what didn’t? Roller skates! The original 50s movers and shakers are a sure-fire hit for Halloween. If you’re a first-timer, don’t forget the knee pads and wrist guards (they’ll make you look even more authentic). Otherwise, you can wear pretty anything you want with skates to look wheely great! But try to go big. More color and accessories = more better.

15. CRUELLA DE VIL
This one speaks for itself. And it is GENIUS. Now go steal some puppies. But maybe give them back later.

16. REDFOO FROM LMFAO
Big frizzy hair? Check. Animal print men’s leggings? Check. Oversize glasses? Check. Ok son . . . Let’s get ridiculous!

17. A LUCHA LIBRE WRESTLER
Ladies love a lycra-clad luchador (trying saying that after a few Halloween cocktails).You’ll have ‘em jumping off the top rope and throwing big theatrical flying elbows in no time. And the best part is, all you need is any pair of metallic or brightly colored leggings and a sweet mask!

18. DAY OF THE DEAD GRINGO
“Eh gringo… que pasa?!” Halloween’s Mexican cousin ‘el Dia de Los Muertos’ (the Day of the Dead) takes the gruesome fun to another level. So, slap on some freaky face paint, slip on some slick ass wet-look leggings and perfect that dead-eye stare, hombre.
