Of course, the traditional costumes are always popular and we have several featured that would be fabulous costume choices for boys.
We have also included a collection of costumes for boys that would be just plain fun to wear.

Super Heroes costumes rule in 2016! Due to the release of “Captain America: Civil War” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, the old heroes are new and popular again this year.

Traditional Halloween Costumes that are Always Popular
Some costumes never go out of style! They don’t even require a new movie release or tv show to be extremely popular with boys when selecting their Halloween costumes.
One note here, Darth Vader is always popular, however with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a new villain was introduced. The Darth Vader and Kylo Ren costumes could easily have been listed above with the new movie release costumes, but we chose to include them here with the other more iconic Halloween costumes for boys.
