Halloween costume negotiations have begun with my boys. School-age boys want to look cool, but not like babies. To help all of us, I have compiled a list of Cool DIY Boys Halloween Costumes that range from easy to hard for school-age boys. Good luck and have fun!

1. Late Night Talk Show Host…Conan

My middle son went as a late night talk show host, Conan O’Brien, last year. He was a big hit. This costume could be adapted for any late night talk show host. You need a box for the desk. Contact paper to cover the box or just paint it. I printed off Conan pictures from the internet and glued them onto the desk. I then attached ribbon to the back of the box to wrap around my son’s neck to hold the desk up. We glued a styrofoam coffee cup to his desk top and added a microphone that we had. I made a mask for him out of foam board, covered it in cotton balls for the hair texture then painted it. He wore a shirt and tie and cracked jokes all night long.


2. Minecraft Steve & Minecraft Creeper

My boys love the video/computer game Minecraft. My youngest wants to be Steve from Minecraft this year. I found a great blog that had a template and instructions on how to make your own: {Mama Needs a Hobby}

This blog also has a template for a Minecraft Creeper:
