Halloween is around seven weeks away so it's time to put some thought into what you'll be wearing, or which character you'll be becoming, for the annual festivities. This weekend in my neighbourhood I saw some people working on their costumes for West Hollywood's Halloween Carnaval in their garage, so if you need some extra inspiration and ideas, check out these men's movie and TV costumes I've spied on my travels these past twelve months.
Be sure to check out this original Birdman movie costume in more detail that was on display in all its glory at my local comic shop, Golden Apple Comics on Melrose Avenue, last December.
This is the Halloween costume I would personally choose to wear if I wasn't flying to New York to run the marathon this year.
If you're a huge Marvel Comics fan like me, you should check out these cool 'Hawkeye', 'Thor', 'Quicksilver' and 'Nick Fury' film costumes from Avengers: Age of Ultron on display too.
Paul Rudd's cool Ant-Man suit, designed by Sammy Sheldon, was spotted on display at ArcLight Hollywood in June this year, plus later out of its reflective case at Disney's D23 Fan Expo.
This regal golden armour designed by Oscar-winner Janty Yates is spectacular and was photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood in November 2014.
If you like this ensemble, be sure to take a look at Christian Bale's Moses costume from Exodus: Gods and Kings too.
If this Colleen Atwood designed outfit on display at Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre is not for you, maybe you should check out Johnny Depp's movie costumes from Alice in Wonderland, The Lone Ranger, Public Enemies and Pirates of the Caribbean instead.
Cinderella's Prince Charming
Plus for another Prince Charming outfit idea, be sure to check out these Once Upon a Time TV costumes and Into the Woods movie costumes.
If Howard Burden's design for the latest regeneration of the Time Lord is not your favourite, then maybe past incarnations of Doctor Who would be more your taste.
Personally I always think Tom Baker's iconic Fourth Doctor multicoloured scarf look is the most memorable.
Terry Dresbach is Series Costume Designer and responsible for Sam Heughan's 'Jamie Fraser' kilted outfit, plus these either Outlander season one costumes, which will also provide more historic military costume ideas.
It goes without saying that there'll be many Stormtroopers and classic Star Wars heroes and villains walking the streets trick or treating this Halloween. And now we have a whole new collection of characters and costumes to choose from (and I'm sure 'Kylo Ren' will be a firm favourite soon).
Michael Kaplan's new designs really have that lived-in Star Wars universe feel to them, looking fresh and original, but also as if they belong to that unique galaxy, far, far away.
Guys, if you're still struggling for ideas, then be sure to also check out these ten costumes inspired by last year's movies and TV show exhibits, plus more from Halloween 2013 and 2012 from the worlds of sci-fi, fantasy, comic books and history.
Whether you decide to make your own, or buy your outfit from a store, have fun and happy hauntings.
