Halloween isn't just for the little ghouls and witches. Oh no, dads too have the right to strut their stuff and sport some awesome costumes. If you're a dad looking for inspiration or just a fun-loving individual in search of a chuckle, we've compiled the top five dad-approved Halloween costumes for 2023. Get ready to steal the show!
Why stay bottled up when you can be the life of the party? Go for a flashy, colorful vest, some billowy pants, and if you're really into it, consider a bald cap with a singular tuft of hair.
Accessories: Golden lamp, preferably one that can hold some candy or treats. Don't forget to offer three "wishes" to those you meet – within reason, of course!
Embrace the elegance and mystique of ancient Egypt with this timeless costume. A white or gold robe, teamed up with a royal headdress or "nemes", will give you that regal look.
Accessories: A staff, gold-colored jewelry like necklaces and bracelets, and if you're feeling playful, a scroll with "dad commandments."
The iconic villain from the DC universe is always a hit. Depending on which Joker version you're channeling (Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Joaquin Phoenix, or others), your costume can range from a dapper purple suit to a more rugged and chaotic look.
Accessories: Green wig or hair spray, makeup kit to get that signature Joker grin, and a deck of cards. Maybe even pull a few (safe) pranks throughout the night!
Unleash your inner superhero! Wear a Superman t-shirt beneath a partially unbuttoned dress shirt and suit, showcasing that iconic 'S' emblem. For dads who want to go the extra mile, consider the full Superman suit with a cape.
Accessories: Clark Kent glasses for the subtle approach, and maybe even a fake newspaper with a headline about Superman saving the day. Remember, it's all in a day's work for a super dad!
Classic, elegant, and eternally popular. Don a dark, velvety suit or cape, and get those fangs ready to make a statement.
Accessories: Fake blood for effect, vampire fangs, and maybe even a bat sidekick (toy, not real!). If you're escorting your kids for trick-or-treating, occasionally ask if any candy is "blood-flavored."
