Inside: Cool Teen Boy Halloween Costumes + Ideas

Do you have any ideas for Halloween costumes yet? I’m always scrambling at the last minute, but this year I’m determined to get a head start. Having a son in his teenage years inspired me to compile a list of easy-to-make, kid-tested, and teen-approved DIY Halloween costumes for teenage boys. Since I also have a girl, you can check out this post for Halloween costumes for a teenage girl & these great new teen group Halloween costumes for even more dress-up inspiration. If you’re looking for school dress-up ideas these Halloween spirit week ideas will give you just the inspiration you need for costumes that also pass the dress code.

Teenagers often find Halloween to be a scary time.

Is it too old for them to go trick-or-treating?

Are they no longer worthy of wearing fancy attire?

Do they really have to be done having fun with life?

No matter where you land on the trick-or-treating debate, the fact remains that any age group can enjoy the holiday by donning a costume and partying it up, or knocking on doors for free candy! No judgment here.

The character costumes may have been fun while your kids were younger, but by the time they hit their teenage years, especially teenage boys, they’ll be looking for something with more of a trendy factor. More Adam Sandler dress up ideas and less Disney prince character dress up style if you know what I mean?

If you’re looking for a Halloween costume idea for a teen boy, here are my favorites for this year that are both easy and fashionable.
