Funny Halloween Costumes for Boys

Abraham Lincoln


Action, drama and power are all the makings of a great character for a boys Halloween costume. So who better to dress as than the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln? The costume includes a vest with attached dickie, coat, pants, hat and bow tie. Just add a chin curtain beard and you’ll have the makings of the next American hero. For an action packed Halloween, the costume can be used to reenact his 1865 assassination which was carried out at Ford’s Theatre by John Wilkes Booth.

But if Civil War Presidents aren’t heroic enough, consider the first President and Founding Father George Washington, complete with a Colonial lace jabot. All that is needed to complete the costume is a white wig, silver buckled shoes and the desire to run a strong, well-financed national government. In the words of Honest Abe, “Whatever you are, be a good one”.

Zombie Sock Monkey


Sock monkey dolls have been lovingly made by crafters since 1890. They are sewn with love by mothers and grandmothers for children all around the world. Their lovable faces, soft plush bodies and red-heel grin melt hearts. But what happens when these handcrafted sock creatures turn bad? Introducing Zombie Sock Monkey, the costume. It is equal parts evil monkey and deathly zombie. With its toothy sneer, bandaged head and detached eye, this creature is definitely looking for trouble.

The costume comes complete with jumpsuit, headpiece and detachable tail. Havoc is imminent this Halloween season with this costume. However, if the Zombie Sock Monkey is too frightening for you, never fear! The original Sock Monkey Costume is available for all ages with an adorable masked monkey grin. But beware, as Sock Monkeys have the ability to turn evil and frequently do on Hallow’s Eve.

Mexican Taco


A taco can be made with an array of delicious ingredients like beef, chicken, cheese, vegetables and children. Children? With this funny life-sized children’s taco costume, he can be a Mexican favorite for Halloween. The costume includes a wraparound tortilla and all the tasty fixings, just like a real taco. To add flavor the costume, add a Mexican sombrero and curly mustache. In this costume, they’ll look good enough to eat.

If you just happen to have a chihuahua, bring it along for the ride. If Mexican food is too spicy for you, consider dressing as a slice of delicious pizza with this Pizza Costume, complete with cheese, pepperoni and mushrooms. Instead of having a pizza party, you’ll be the party pizza! For Halloween, there’s no need to look further than south of the border or to the Mediterranean for great (and scrumptious) costume ideas for your boy.



Elvis, the King of Rock and Roll, has been imitated by millions of fans around the world. His flashy white jumpsuit, glittery belt and pompadour hairstyle has become an iconic image. This Halloween, your little prince can be the King in this officially licensed Elvis Presley costume. The costume includes a decorated jumpsuit, belt and scarf. To complete the look, purchase a pair or gold sunglasses, pompadour wig and gold microphone.

To really give the effect of the rock and roll persona, tote an mp3 player that plays classic Elvis Presley songs to sing to. He’ll have the neighborhood block all shook up this Halloween. But if old-school rock and roll icons aren’t popular with the little ones, consider dressing as pop heartthrob Justin Bieber. In an all-white outfit and classic Bieber purple shirt, all they need is a pair of high-top sneakers and a manicured coif to set the star image.
