Ghostbusters Men's Fancy Dress
Of course, we love the Ghostbusters! Ever since the first movie, all the way back in 1984, we've dreamed about heading on paranormal investigations with the crew. We went so far as to make some high-quality Ghostbusters fancy dress costumes for you to wear. These men's costumes take all of the details from the movie and turn them into a simple outfit that's both authentic and comfortable, making them the perfect option when trying to decide on a fancy dress outfit.

WWE Wrestling Costumes for Men
Want something with energy through the roof? How about a men's WWE costume for your fancy dress party? The great thing about WWE costumes for men is that we carry a huge variety of characters, so all you have to do is choose the character who best suits your own personality! If you want to put that Macho Man Randy Savage impression to good use, then we have a men's costume for that. If you want to indulge in your dark side, then perhaps you can suit up as the mysterious Kane. You can even dress up as the iconic classic, Ric Flair! WOO!
Men's Superhero Costumes
Who doesn't dream of being granted superpowers through some act of fate? We've been waiting for a radioactive spider to turn us into a superhero…but until then, a good superhero costume is a fine compromise! Finding your inner superhero might take a little self-reflection, but we're sure you can choose the right costume for you. Are you the charismatic playboy type, like Iron Man? Or are you the stoic do-gooder type, like Superman? That's the question you have to figure out! Below, we'll show you some of our favourite superhero costumes for men's fancy dress to help you generate some good ideas!
Men's Spider-Man Costumes
For many, Spider-Man truly is the example of a perfect superhero. Not because he's perfect, of course, but because he's NOT perfect! The Marvel hero spends his time trying to juggle his classes, his love life, and his career as a superhero. It's part of what makes Peter Parker so relatable! So if you can relate to the hectic world of Spider-Man, try wearing one of our men's Spider-Man costumes! We carry men's Spider-Man fancy dress outfits that include his classic outfit, along with his Iron Spider suit from Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
Batman Costumes for Men
If Spider-Man represents one of the most relatable superheroes, then Batman has to be the polar opposite! After all, Bruce Wayne has near-limitless resources, he lives in a mansion, and he's basically put his entire life on hold to become the hero that Gotham City needs. Batman might not be as relatable, but that may be what makes the hero so alluring! He's mysterious, brooding, and an enigma to even the few friends he has. If you want to indulge in your inner enigma, then wearing one of our Batman costumes for men is a great choice. If you're not into the brooding Batman style, you can always go with the more whimsical Adam West version of the classic DC character.
Men's Disney Costumes
Next in our list of fancy dress ideas for men, we have Disney! Our Disney costumes provide the perfect opportunity for fans to relive some of their favourite moments from classic movies. Whether you were a 90s kid who grew up with Aladdin and Hercules as your favourite film, or you love the older classics like Alice in Wonderland and Beauty and the Beast, you can really find a great look that fits you. Let's take a look at some of your best options when choosing Disney as your fancy dress theme!
Hercules Men's Fancy Dress Costume
In the movie, Hercules goes from zero to hero with a little training and self-confidence! Well, his classic look can make anyone feel like a true hero. Plus he’s also one of the most recognizable heroes of all time, so when you roll into the fancy dress party wearing this Hercules costume, everyone will be ready to chant your name. (Just like in the song!)
Winnie the Pooh Men's Costume

Men's Animal Costumes
Sometimes, you just want to unleash your inner animal! Of course, everyone has a different animal that represents their personality, so it's essential to choose the right animal that fits you. (We think of ourselves as a quokka.) The good news is that we specialize in making some really great costumes! That's right, our Made By Us section includes many different animals, from the common ones like lion and elephant, to some of the often forgotten animals in the costuming world, like warthog and orangutan! It's easy for everyone to find their favourite animal with our selection of men's animal costumes.
Cosplay Costumes for Men
Heading to a convention? Sounds like you need a cosplay costume! Yes, sometimes the average Halloween costume just doesn't fit the bill when you want to look EXACTLY like the character.

We carry all of those sorts of men's costumes, but some of our most frightening outfits draw their inspiration from the darker moments in history. This Made By Us costume is modelled after the plague doctor outfits worn during plague times. Wear this as your Halloween costume and people may just fear you more than the Grim Reaper himself!
Classic Men's Halloween Costumes
Going classic is never a bad choice! Many of these styles of costumes have withstood the test of time, simply because they're the best at what they do. From pirates to vampires, here are our picks for some of the classy men's Halloween costumes styles that are great for any occasion (and will most likely be a popular choice for years to come).
Men's Vampire Costumes
Somehow, vampires became the epitome of classy! Maybe it was how Dracula was portrayed in Bram Stoker's famous novel. Maybe it was the movie Interview with a Vampire back in 1994. Maybe it was the surge of vampire novels in the 2000s. Maybe it's clever, secretive PR run by real-life vampires! Well, whatever the reason, vampires have become both a classy and classic costume to wear to any costume party. Whether you want a classic, noble vampire look, or something a little more frightening, we have vampire costumes that will suit your style.
Men's Medieval Costumes
Medieval times could be brutal, but they were also a time of chivalry and knighthood, kings and queens! They were also a time of epic heroes who slay evil and terrible villains who would rend the world asunder. That's why we consider our medieval costumes for men to be a truly classic experience for any guy. You can even find some Game of Thrones-inspired costumes to help you achieve a look that's noble enough to bring the entire kingdom together!
Men's 1920s Costumes
Some decades were just classier than others! Take the 1980s, for instance. That was the decade of teased hair, spandex, and loud music that made your parents yell. The 1920s were a decade of suits, jazz, and fancy hats. And while it may have been a rebellious style at the time, these days it just looks classic! Our men's 1920s costumes are a great change of pace for any guy who wants to dress up in a retro suit and listen to some Duke Ellington!
Men's Pirate Costumes
Finally, if you're still undecided, the go-to costume for any guy is the iconic pirate! It's stuck around as one of the best costume choices for Halloween and costume parties because it truly is one of the best. It looks good on most guys and everyone immediately recognizes a good swashbuckler costume. It even gives you a reason to carry a toy sword around as you talk like a pirate. Any costume that lets you do that is a great outfit in our book!
