Best Strip Club Halloween Costumes

I have been getting tons of emails lately such as, “What is the Best Halloween Costume for a G to wear?” or something to the tune of “I am going to a sick Halloween gig this year, what is the best costume?” Decent questions, all in all. I am going to go out on a limb and assume that when people say “Best” they mean the “Best Halloween Costume to Pick up Girls in”. Fair enough?

Now, keep in mind, I don’t really go out on Halloween anymore and I have mentioned this before in: Halloween Parties and Vampire Naps. To be quite honest, I don’t really go out on Holidays at all. Too many cops, guys, snitches, informers, protective boyfriends, grasses and corporate fools. (In fact, I am having trouble even going out on weekends nowadays. Weekends are for working stiffs. Tues, Wed, and Thurs you can get your most solid work done. And when I say “solid work” I mean swooping the flyest girls. Mondays are bad, because of Thurs seafood deliveries. Unless, of course, you go to Le Bernardin in NYC).

First off, here are some definite “Don’ts” for Halloween Costumes:

No face paint. (The stuff will get in your eyes and end up running down your face at some point in the night. Plus, you should want to take advantage of your good looks. You are in your prime, right?)

No “shirt off” costumes. (unless your gay)

No spandex. (If I need to explain this, your problems don’t end there.)

Now, keep in mind, I haven’t “battle tested” many of these costumes. But, I have picked the brains of many trusted sources and G’s active on The International Playboy Circuit, to come up with this data sheet on The Best Halloween Costumes for Guys:

The Classics:

The Mummy: Bad Idea, dressing up in toilet paper isn’t going to get you any girls.

Spiderman: No. Spandex. This also goes for Superman, Batman or any of those other clowns. Aquaman? Do me a favor. This is real life, not HBO’s Entourage. For the record, I out-Gamed Marky Mark heads up back in the day for a fly girl in Hollywood. And she was from Boston! Come on Marky? Skip along and go find your Funky Bunch. Dancing around in your underwear? That guy is so weesh. But I digress. Back to The Best Halloween Costume…

Pirate: Good move, especially if you spin it like a Pirates of the Caribbean-Johnny Depp style costume. Fly girls buy into that Hollywood-Johnny Depp crap, if you haven’t noticed.

Dracula: Best choice of the classics by far. Real good for submissive girls. You get to slick back your hair, and dress in black. Can be pretty sinister. Pretty haunting like Hope Sandoval’s voice. It’s no secret that Fly Girls like Vampires.

Time Period Costumes:

50’s Greaser: I wouldn’t recommend it. But, could be good for swooping white trash girls.

60’s Hippy: Not bad if you spin it into some drugged out Jim Morrison type cat. Also, girls that like weed and pills will probably step to you. Which is never a bad thing.

70’s Disco Cat: Best bet. You can wear fly clothes and if you are carrying drugs, you can play it off as some kind of “prop”.

The Whispers – And The Beat Goes On

“Funny” Costumes:

Not really a fan of “funny” costumes. The guy dressed as a “Condom” never gets any girls. Keep in mind, however, that wearing Condoms with any girl you meet on Halloween dressed in some scandalous outfit is advisable.

Occupational Based Costumes:

Fireman: I have heard from some fairly reliable sources that the Fireman does get chicks on Halloween. I could see it working especially well on girls with Blue-Collar backgrounds. Hell, might even work on Sophito Girls too.

Pimp: Pretty standard choice. Works pretty well on girls that have ever thought of a career in “The Life”. Which, these days, as much as we don’t want to face it, most girls have. Just, don’t be a rest haven for girls.

Doctor: Best bet. Later in the night, when everyone is out of their mind, you will seem more “trustworthy”. “Prescription pad” can be used for getting girls digits. “Pill bottle” you can use to hold Beans.

Celebrities (Personally, I hate Celebrities, except for heisting their cribs or their girlfriends, but if you must):

Pro Athletes: Bad move. You will only have guys coming up to you and high-fiving you all night. (Although, wearing a vintage Allen Iverson G-Town Jersey could be dope.)

Hugh Hefner: Best Bet. Unoriginal, but who cares? Best to be a young Hef vs and old Hef. Plus, it’s an easy costume to put together; just grab the custom red velvet smoking jacket and Italian silk purple pajamas from your closet and you are ready to go. Added bonus: The young Hef used to smoke cigarettes, so you can chain-smoke all night. If some girl you are with complains of your constant smoking you can say you just want to stay “In character”. Smooth.

Group Costumes:

Baseball Furies: Face paint, don’t do it. However, you do get to carry a baseball bat though, in case things get dicey.

Run-D.M.C.: Pretty dope. Just make sure you grab the Mic at some point in the night and have some skills:

“I met this little girlie, her hair was kinda curly,
Went to her house and bust her out, I had to leave real early
These girls are really sleazy, all they just say is please me,
Or spend some time and rock a rhyme, I said “It’s not that easy”.

Run-D.M.C. – It’s Tricky (listen for the GO-GO beat at the begining)

Alex and the Droogs (A Clockwork Orange): Not bad, especially from a young G’s perspective. The problem is you will end up in a fight and/or destroying property that night. Just, make sure you are Alex. Dim gets no chicks.

Movie Costumes:

Star Wars: No. I don’t care if your Puke Skysnotter, Barf Vader, Ham Salad or Chewbacon.

: Not a bad choice. Girls like Zorro. Plus, you get to wear a mask, if you want to do a Heist.

Patrick Bateman (American Psycho): Great choice. You can dress sharp, carry a gun, tons of cash and drugs. Sounds like a regular Tuesday night. Make sure you have a reservation at Dorsia.

Don Juan (Demarco): Real Good choice. You have the Johnny Depp factor in your favor and centuries of playboy lore working for you. If you can’t swoop fly girls dressed as Don Juan, then you really need to do some re-evaluation on your Game.

Tony Montana: Second best Choice of all. You are sharply dressed, full of swagger, smoking fine Cigars and cigarettes, Latin, Tooled up and suited down. You are dressed as men are supposed to dress and you don’t have to sacrifice personal style. Plus, you can have tons of Beeks on you and everyone will just think it is part of your costume. But then again, you should be like this every night, not just Halloween.

Manolo (from Scarface in case you have been living under a rock for the last 20 years): Best Choice of All. You get all the advantages of Tony but you get more girls. (You can skip the double-breasted suit if you like.) Tony was always about “In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.” Manny was down with that also but he changed the order to Women – Power – Money. I like it in that order also. The G Manifesto Way.

In closing, The G makes the Halloween Costume; the Halloween Costume doesn’t make the G.

    MPM, the PEOPLE’S CHAMP, back in action!

    love the throw-back allen iverson shout out. i think i remember seeing a Mason bro or two suited down and looking sharp in the front row at MSG back in 1996, big east final, jesus shuttlesworth and AI battling in the world’s most famous arena.

    what are the best cities to party in on halloween?

    best chance of swooping college chicks: ucsb (in isla vista, ca) or madison, wi.

    I am impressed. I have been watching your blog since it first came out and I thought you were going to run out of material quick. I stand corrected. It keeps getting funnier and funnier. Cant wait to see what is next up your sleeve- probably a Panerai!

    your list includes some very good options–as well as the targets said costumes are likely to appeal to. I would consider it oversight and forgivable that you neglected to include in your list the euro-g, james bond on the list of movie characters that are acceptable options. While I could elaborate and add the many details to support this addition, Mr. Bond’s top notch history, wardrobe and armory are enough. Personally in my experience you can never fail when wearing a tuxedo and carrying a pistol–even something as non-menacing as the ppk to attract the best females.
    It doesn’t even have to be Halloween.

    El Miz,

    I love being ringside or courtside MSG.

    yeah, I remember going to halloween ucsb in isla vista back in the day. Can be a really good move from a young G’s perspective. As I recall, thing worked out real well. 2-0 with 2ko’s there.

    I agree. This is one of my favorite g manifestos. I think the g manifesto does best when it takes an every day topic like halloween costumes and spins that manifesto twist on it. I think most readers grasp your writing more easily. Another good example would be the one on bottle service.

    Excellent list one option not listed that I found worked well and didn’t cost shit was going as jay and silent bob. Definitely works on the stoner chicks.

    Supposedly, these are the Best Halloween costumes for 2008 some article claims:

    Barack Obama and John McCain
    The Incredible Hulk
    Harry Potter
    High School Musical “Sharpay”
    The Clone Wars
    Hannah Montana
    Indiana Jones
    The Joker
    Batman: The Dark Knight

    pretty weesh if you ask me.

    To get the ladies, last year, I dressed as Frank Sinatra. I looked sharp, and had a swagger about me. Plus if you can actually sing “Fly me to the moon”

    The other year I just went to be offensive (even though I still hooked up with some girls) and I wore an outfit reminiscent of Bin Laden, with the camo jacket and all, and wore fake dynamite around my body with a fake machine gun to set it off. If I were to do the same thing this year, I’d probably wear a McCain or Obama mask as well, just make sure you don’t go to a party where you don’t know anybody or you might get your @ss kicked.

    What fly costumes can you recommend for shorter guys? Anything unique or do you believe that a shorter-than-average Hef or Johnny Depp is the best option for picking up the chicks?

  22. The G Manifesto
    30/10/2008 at 8:07 am Permalink

    I read your suggestions… I can tell you most girls do like a funny costume, I am not suggesting you dress in a giant penis costume or as a condom. One year I went out for Halloween with a huge group of girls. We all definitely loved the guys who dressed as something like Coach Stiffler and Ace Ventura (the outfit with the tutu) more than any other costumes.
    Dress in something that is going to be a conversation starter, and if its something that takes guts to wear, that is an added bonus! Most girls will not come up to you because they love your firefighter, doctor, or pimp costume.
    Hope this helps!

    Personally I don’t go out on Halloween at all as I mentioned above.

    “I can tell you most girls do like a funny costume”

    All due respect, “Most Girls” has never been the goal.

    The hottest ones are.

    So I was going to go as Eazy E, cause I’m short like him, but then I remembered he died of aids. (very bad impression to leave with the ladies). But I already have the compton hat and the locs so I think I’m going as just your typical gangsta gangsta straight outta compton, with maybe a derbie jacket, white tee, and house shoes. Whad’ya think?

    No where that I have been.

    Although, I have been accused of “regionalism” lately so maybe in a different place that is not Manifesto Turf.

    Costumes for guys would have to be Military stuff. I know Many men have discovered women in uniform to be sexy. Women in uniform are strong, dominant, and know what they want, making them even more appealing. This is the major reason why a Sexy Army Nurse Costume is one of the fastest growing segments in costumes today.

    Tiger woods costume
    Mark Zuckerberg
    Old Spice Guy
    Justin Bieber
    Witch, Christine O’Donnell–Style
    Levi Johnston
