Then hopefully this article will be able to help provide you with at least just a few decent costume ideas that you could perhaps shop around for or at least expand upon.

Goodies Costume Ideas

The type of goodies costume ideas that immediately spring to mind are that of superheroes. 

There are plenty of places out there where you can buy these sorts of costumes from, Amazon in particular have a whole range of potential superhero outfits for adults and kids that range in prices, so you can spend almost as little or as much as you want.

Superhero Costumes Ideas for Men Include:

For more ideas for superhero costumes I would do a quick check online to remind yourself of the type of superheroes out there and then see where you can get hold of a costume to match at special costume sites or even eBay. You can find a list of Superheroes and Superheroines over on sites such as 'comic vine' or even check out wikipedia.

Remember though Goodies don't just have to feature around the superhero theme but could be applied to all sorts of other ideas as well, here are just a few ideas you could think about:

  • Policemen and women
  • Star Trek Costumes
  • Zorro
  • Legolas - Lord of the Rings
  • Harry Potter
  • RoboCop
  • Angels
  • Ghostbusters

My particular favourite though for the goodies section has to be the Halo 3 Supreme Edition Costume, although it is rather on the expensive side.
