30 Creative Halloween Costume Ideas for Boys

Making the perfect costume for a boy can be a challenge. It seems girls' costumes are over abundant. It's so easy to throw together a princess costume, but boys are more of a challenge. Boy costumes tend to be more elaborate or else it's just plain harder to come up with new ideas.

Whether your child has already decided his Halloween costume, or you both still need a little inspiration, we have compiled thirty great DIY costumes for boys that will not disappoint and will encourage your own creativity.

From simple cardboard box costumes to Legos, from scary to cute, historic costumes to superheroes, we have found something for everyone. With a variety of skill levels, you can choose something on the easier side, or challenge yourself and maybe even learn a new skill when you work on a boys costume this year.
