22. Jareth From ‘Labyrinth’ Costume
If you’re a fan of the ’80s, there’s no Halloween costume for men more captivating than this Labyrinth one. After all, Jareth is in command and has all the power.

A lumberjack is an easy last-minute Halloween costume that you should be able to throw together at a moment’s notice with clothing and accessories you already have in your closet.
Pretty much all you need is this flannel (that you will wear again), some boots, and blue jeans — then you’ll be set. An axe, suspenders, and this Carhartt hat will help enhance the look even further!
29. Minion Costume
Do you love sweets, singing, and are so extremely reliable that you will go to any lengths to help your boss take over the world? Well, you can be all of those things on Halloween this year. This Minion costume is the perfect option for folks who want to speak gibberish and be zany.
30. Mysterio From ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Costume
Mysterio is a character who’s easy to sympathize with and fall for, but when push comes to shove, he’s a deceitful jerk. Then again, we might not have superheroes if it wasn’t for the bad guys.
For those wanting to dress as a super villain this Halloween, you can’t get more evil than Mysterio. He betrayed Nick Fury and conned the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, but at least he looked cool in the process.
