An Ewok is the most logical Halloween costume choice for guys with brown facial hair. Check out how seamlessly the beard blends in – the execution is flawless!

This Princess Leia costume is a big mood, so take note! His beard really complements the hair buns.

You should probably never meet your heroes…

But you can still dress up like them for Halloween. Ask a friend to draw on the tattoos (with washable markers hopefully) and go big or go home with this flashy idea!


9. The Brawny Man

When it comes to wardrobe pieces, I’m convinced that flannel button-ups are the ultimate standard issue for all men. They go with everything and can always be dressed up or down.

So, it only makes sense why the Brawny Man is a classic Halloween look for men.

As shown, it can be rocked with or without a beard! But it’s clear opting to keep the beard will make you a dead ringer for the inspiration.


10. Wonder Whoa-Man

The chest hair is a nice touch, really sells the whole look. And don’t get me started on the costume craftsmanship, it’s honestly impressive!
