So, you know, Halloween is coming up… Here are 10 costumes that are totally easy to pull off, with just a little gay sensibility.

Patrick Bateman


Remember him from American Psycho – well, the film does have a totally homoerotic subtext and a lot of talk has been utter on whether actually, Patrick is gay or bisexual.

All you need is:

  1. A smart suit, if you have a £3000 one with power even better
  2. A power tie, which must be red and you must have matching braces
  3. An 80’s mobile phone
  4. A rain mac, which must be see through
  5. An axe – brand new, with shiny, shiny head

James Dean

Much was made, in the years after his death of his sexuality. His early death meant that Dean would become a legend. This is a really simple look to pull off.

All you need is:

  1. White T-shirt
  2. Classic cut jeans
  3. Boots
  4. All-American Harrington jacket


Jesse Walsh

Nightmare On Elm Street 2 was loaded with homoerotic undertones… why not relive the early 80s with a Jessie costume. Make sure you spend most of the evening shouting something about Freddy being inside of you…

All you need is:

  1. Yellow patterned shirt
  2. Vintage cut blue jeans
  3. Baseball cap
  4. Golden glasses
  5. A radio blasting out 80’s hits

Some consider her a gay icon and her recent look of bunny ears is a totally hot look for guys.

  2. Washboard stomach
  3. White stiletto shoes
  4. Tall stool to balance on
