Supercool Halloween costume inspiration for men...

Need some ideas for your Halloween costume this year? Whether you're looking to be a futuristic warrior, crime-fighting vigilante, iconic hero, eccentric character, wondrous wizard or scary villain, here's a fantastic selection of movie costumes worn by Hollywood's leading men from the worlds of fantasy, sci-fi, sword and sorcery and more.

Mad Hatter costume from Alice in Wonderland

The Mad Hatter was certainly a popular choice at last year's West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval.

Harry Potter Quidditch robes

I'm sure that lots of fans will be paying homage to Harry Potter this year now that the movies have come to a satisfying conclusion.

Nite Owl II costume from Watchmen

I love Nite Owl's Batman-esque costume design from Watchmen and would love to own a suit like this.

Rorschach outfit from Watchmen

'Rorschach' is also great costume idea from Watchmen and it's probably the easiest to replicate if you have a trench coat, hat and scarf to hand.

Dastan costume from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

If you're a 'sand and sandals' fantasy fan, this Prince of Persia costume would look great, especially if you have the muscles to fill it out like Jake Gyllenhaal did.
Captain Jack Sparrow costume from
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Following a fourth cinematic outing this year, maybe you fancy taking inspiration from 'Captain Jack Sparrow' or one of the other swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean characters.
Captain Barbossa costume from
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

If you're a comic book fan, what about donning the classic superhero tights of 'Superman', or maybe a slightly more gritty 'Dark Knight'?

For medieval fantasy fans there's lots of ideas to be gained from the heroes that feature in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Even though The Last Airbender was a pretty dire movie adaptation of the popular cartoon series, 'Aang's' look should be a fairly easy one to replicate (although granted, not everyone wants to shave their head for Halloween).

For Star Wars fans it's time to grab yourself some black and red face-paint, a black cloak and a lightsaber (you know you have one hanging around).

Darth Maul costume from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

If you feel like baring all this season (and have the six-pack and pecs to do so), take a leaf out of Jason Momoa's new look 'Conan the Barbarian'. Although be warned, those chain-mail sleeves are heavy.

Conan the Barbarian movie remake costume

Zorro TV costume

Be inspired by the classic look of 'Zorro', which is quite a simple look to replicate if you have some black clothes in your wardrobe, or what about the retro stylings of 'The Rocketeer'.

And if the new Tron: Legacy light-suits don't do it for you, maybe take a fashion tip from the past (or is that future), with these classic Tron movie costumes.

Even if you can't find the exact outfit you were looking for, maybe all these original movie costumes will help spark an idea of what you could be for Halloween.
