Going out for trick or treating is rarely something adults enjoy, not least because they end the evening with kids who are on a sugar high! But it has to be done, and half the battle of Halloween is finding the right costume for your children. Halloween outfits for boys are quite hard to find, but after trawling the internet, it seems that there are a reasonable amount out there. Take a look at this list of some of the best 2010 Halloween outfits for boys.
Scary Clown Costume
This is the stuff of nightmares, so naturally boys will love it. It comes in sizes 7-9 years and 10-12 years and costs £23.95. It sounds a bit expensive, but for what you get it is a pretty good deal The scary clown costume is made up of a brightly coloured top and trousers, scary clown face shoes, gloves and a terrifying mask! Halloween costumes for boys don’t get more frightening than this!
Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume
It will be quite difficult to lose your son in this outfit! This one piece black jumpsuit is glow in the dark bones attached so he will be quite easy to spot! This costume also comes with a separate mask. The bonus is, when it gets really dark he can double up as a handy torch to guide you home!
Howling Ghost Costume
Currently only available in sizes 8-10 years, this howling ghost outfit is right out of the movie Scream. A ghoulishly scary black robe, black gloves and a ghost mask make up this outfit and is a great choice for boys this Halloween.
Skate Punk Zombie Costume
This one is quite different to the norm. In sizes 5-7 years and 8-10 years, it is made up of a scarred torso shirt, baggy skater shorts, black gloves, a choker and a mask with mohican hair! It would be great for boys who love skating and think they are too cool for Halloween!
When you think of Halloween costumes for boys, Dracula is usually one of the first things that springs to mind. However, this Dracula outfit is rather suave, in a scary kind of way. Instead of the usual black, this Dracula costume is purple! The top has a frilly, white front and there is a red waistband on the trousers to match the cape. The outfit is completed with a Dracula mask. Not bad for £21.99.
As you can see from the list, there are quite a few non-traditional or at least different versions of traditional outfits to choose from this year. Have fun and stay safe!
