18 Boys Halloween Costumes He Hasn't Already Seen His Friends Wear

Nobody wants to be a ghost (or goblin) three years in a row.


Your son's Halloween costume doesn't have to revolve around the sugar-sweet Prince Charming or being a terrifying ghoul. Whether you're shopping online or creating his ensemble from scratch, help him find a Fright Night getup that's as unique as his personality by highlighting his favorite movies, hobbies, or emojis.

You won't need to use the force to put his favorite Jedi's signature brown robe together. If you can't find a cheap lightsaber at the store, a pool noodle works just as well.
