That might have even been what you wore today! This Johnny Bravo Halloween costume couldn’t be easier.

Ready to bring out your inner nerd and anthropomorphic aardvark? This easy Arthur costume is for you.

Find a yellow or orange long sleeve shirt or sweater, round glasses, and some big ears.

Mouse ears will do the trick since aardvark ears are a little harder to come by.

If you are a Back To The Future fan but don’t want to hassle with makeup or invest in crazy and expensive costumes, this Marty McFly costume is the perfect alternative.

This costume is simple to put together and looks exactly like the movie.

Grab an orange vest, denim long-sleeved shirt (to go under the vest), a blue and white plaid shirt, and jeans, and finish the outfit off with white sneakers.

They don’t have to be super clean. You are time traveling after all so dirty sneakers are a-okay.

Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one with this easy Marty McFly Halloween costume.

4 — Pizza Delivery Man Costume

This costume works just as well as a singles costume as it does a couples costume.

This costume is a great way to use up old clothes too. Pizza boys aren’t known for wearing pricy jeans or clean, unstained shirts.

So grab up an old T-shirt, some jeans, sneakers, a hat, and some headphones for a great pizza delivery man costume.

Pro tip: You can carry around an empty pizza box or step this costume up a notch and use a pizza box with real pizza inside and eat a slice whenever you want! 

5 — Star Trek Costume

Pair the outfit with all-black attire underneath, and you are all set to fly off! 

6 — Men in Black Halloween Costume 

YND Men's Slim Fit 2 Piece Suit, Double-Breasted Jacket Pants Set with Tie, Solid Party Wedding Dress Blazer, Tux and Trousers Black
