Gothic Halloween Costume Ideas

Whether you practice the Gothic lifestyle or not, Halloween lends itself to great costumes that fit in really nice with the focus of the fun day.

There are any number of Gothic Halloween costume designs you can choose from, including the typical horror type, or spin offs from there that take advantage of much of what outsiders consider the Gothic look.

Of course if you consider yourself a Goth, all you have to do is make a few adjustments to have a fun Halloween costume, as you already have the makeup and wardrobe foundation to work from.

Either way, Halloween is a great time to wear a Gothic costume, and below I've included a bunch of photos to give some idea on what you could put together yourself or buy to wear for the frightful day.

Goth Men's Halloween Costumes

Let's start with some Gothic men's Halloween costumes, and after that we'll look at Gothic Halloween costumes for the ladies.

These men's Gothic Halloween costumes pretty much speak for themselves, as the vampire or Dracula costume look is always a part of this particular theme.

While I like all of these Gothic costumes, probably the one I like best is the hooded, middle one, with the unique and mysterious look. Very cool Gothic trench coat costume.

I also like how all of these Gothic Halloween costumes keep with the normal black theme of Goth, but more importantly, for Halloween. Not all Gothic clothes are black of course, but at Halloween that is almost a must for men's Gothic costumes.

Vertical Vampire in a Coffin Halloween Costume

I just had to throw in this funny but effective costume of a vampire in a coffin. The first time I saw this I thought he was lying down, but then realized after looking for a second time that he was standing up, which adds a lot of possibilities for those wanting to position themselves in strategic places around the house or party to scare the daylights out of people. It's an awesome Halloween costume idea.
