Fun Formal Halloween Costume IdeasOctober 18, 2014 6:35 pm
With Halloween just around the corner, many people are scrambling for costume ideas, but not to worry, here are a few options from your neighborhood Tuxedo Specialists:
James Bond – One of the first things that comes to mind when thinking about a sharp-looking costume, 007 is a great way to go. First off, you’ll look great. Second, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself all night with an unobstructed outfit, fit for dancing and partying. Depending on who your favorite Bond is, you have a few options:
Connery : You can go with a traditional black tuxedo, or a white dinner jacket, but always remember the bow tie and martini glass!
Daniel Craig: Order a Midnight Blue Shawl Lapel from Classic Tuxedos, flat front shirt, and black bow tie, and you’re the new Bond! (Bonus points if you already have blond hair!)
Secret Service Agent – Among the easiest to pull off, all you’ll need is a black suit or tuxedo, simple, conservative tie, white dress shirt, a pair of simple ear-bud headphones, and some dark shades, and voilà! Secret Service guy!
Agent Smith – The same outfit as above, slim black tie, and boxy 90’s sunglasses. Greet everyone as “Mr. Anderson”
The Most Interesting Man in the World – This one is great because of the level of comfort, and all the fun quotes you can recite throughout your evening. Any sort of tuxedo can work for this outfit, just leave the bow-tie untied, and your top button (or two) of your shirt undone.
The Penguin – Wear a tailcoat with a purple bow tie and a top hat, find yourself a cigarette holder, monocle, and umbrella. Go for an extra large puff on your pocket square for this one.
Duck Dynasty – Wear a Camo tuxedo from Classic Tuxedos and an American Flag bandanna, beard and long haired wig.
Barney Stinson – Wear a suit with a slim tie, add a pocket square, and learn some cheap magic tricks and cheesy pick-up lines.
Ted Mosby – Wear a tux, undo the top button on your wing collar shirt, let the bow tie hang, and carry your yellow umbrella, tell your kids about your awesome, yet simple costume.
Charlie Chaplin – Get a bowler, suit jacket (one size too small), suit pants (one size too big), a mustache, and a cane. Be careful swinging the cane around!
Dumb and Dumber (Harry and Lloyd) – Get in early to order the orange and powder blue tuxedos the goofballs wore in the movie.
