It’s October and everyone’s talking about Halloween parties—maybe you’re throwing one too? If you’re not sure what to dress up as or you’ve left it too late to order a costume, we’ve got 101 ideas that’ll get you sorted. Browse though our top picks, and to help narrow down your selection, just pick what kind of girl you’re trying to impress. Happy Halloween!

For the Young-at-Heart Belle

  • The Prince from Cinderella

You’ll have every girl swooning over you when she sees you as the prince of her dreams, and childhood obsession. The handsome prince from Cinderella followed his heart to find Cinderella. We’re pretty sure that in this costume you won’t have to search too much.

  • Shredder from TMNT

Go as your favorite baddie from days gone by. Muscular and sexy, and with just the right amount of armor to shield you from unwanted attention on Halloween, this old-school Shredder costume will make you the hottest cartoon character that everyone loves to hate.

You could also try:

  • Power Ranger
  • Popeye
  • Captain Planet
  • Finn from Adventure Time
  • Lion-O from Thudercats
  • He-man
  • Samurai Jack
  • Afro Samurai
  • Sterling Archer
  • Peewee Herman

For the Comicon Fangirl

  • Jon Snow from Game of Thrones

Definitely the most rugged man on the show, the handsome Jon Snow is every girl’s favorite good guy. Never mind being stuck guarding the North Wall, we’re pretty sure you’ll find someone willing to cozy up and keep you warm in this costume.

  • Thor

The strongest of all the superheroes, the handsome Thor is exactly the kind of costume that’ll have you looking like one of your favorite comic book characters—minus all that lycra. This is perfect if you still want to fit in with the comic book crowd but look rugged enough to impress the cool girls too.

  • Captain Kirk from Star Trek

Probably the handsomest of all fictional leaders, we’re pretty sure that every girl in the galaxy has a soft spot for Captain Kirk. And it’s a pretty simple costume too – just a yellow Star Fleet shirt with some black trousers and you’re good to go.

You could also try:

  • The Dark Knight
  • Iron Man
  • Robin Hood
  • Wolverine
  • The Joker
  • Altair from Assassin’s Creed
  • Prince of Persia
  • Luke Skywalker from Star Wars
  • Darth Vader
  • Doctor Who
  • Ghostbusters
  • Legolas from Lord of the Rings

For the Leading Lady 

  • Zoolander

Probably the world’s favorite male fashion model, we love the idea of dressing up as Zoolander for a funny Halloween costume. Girls will love your sense of humor and you’ll a be conversation starter no matter how icy the room.

  • Don Draper from Mad Men

By far the sexiest of all the leading men currently on TV, Don draper is the epitome of an old-fashioned gentlemen—and a man’s man. Emulate his style with a tailored 1960’s suit, a glass of whisky, and a cool demeanor.

  • James Bond

We love Daniel Craig’s interpretation of this long-lived (and loved) character. Make like 007 and look the part with a sharp tux (with bowtie done, or undone), and don’t forget your license to thrill.

You could also try:

  • Tom Cruise in Top Gun
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Rocky from Rocky Horror Picture Show
  • Rocky Balboa
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  • Danny from Grease
  • Mad Hatter
  • The Karate Kid
  • John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever
  • The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

For the Musical Maven

  • PSY (Gangnam Style)

Bizarre in every possible way, PSY became a hit sensation once his video for Gangnam Style went viral. Part charm and part irony, dress up like him this Halloween. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your dance moves.

  • David Bowie

Iconic in so many ways, David Bowie was a visionary not only in terms of music—but also style. We love the idea of dressing up as him for Halloween—any one of his looks can work, which makes dressing up as him as versatile (and bold) an option as you’ll get.

You could also try:

  • Prince (the artist)
  • Elvis Presley
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Justin Bieber
  • Bono
  • Michael Jackson
  • Louie Armstrong
  • Slash from Guns & Roses
  • Mick Jagger
  • John Lennon
  • Gene Simmons from KISS

For the History & Mythology Buff

  • Bruce Lee

Before there were all of those generic (and pretty awful) action movies, there was Bruce Lee. Need we say any more? Legendary in every possible way, we love the idea of bringing back some real action to Halloween. Bonus points if you can get someone to dress up as Chuck Norris and stage a fight.

  • Roman Gladiator

This one doesn’t really need any explanation, does it? It’s a guy’s-guy costume and one that’ll be popular with the ladies too. Some dramatic shouting might help you get into character (just don’t stab anyone with your sword).

You could also try:

  • Marc Antony
  • Julius Caesar
  • Napoleon
  • Zeus
  • King Tutankhamun
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Imhotep (The Mummy)
  • Chuck Norris

For The Golden Girl

  • Steve Jobs

Girls like financial stability, and smart guys with potential too. The epitome of all that? Mr. Steve jobs himself.  Just get yourself a pair of wire-rimmed glasses, a black turtleneck, some Birkenstocks, and hold up your iPhone all night.

  • Jay-Z

The most highly-paid male musician of last year, Jay-Z has everything going for him at the moment—not to mention the beautiful lady by his side. Make like this much-loved celebrity and go as him this Halloween. You need three things: a white shirt, an enormous gold chain, and a mic. Oh, and hopefully some musical skills.

You could also try:

  • Christian Grey
  • Gideon Cross
  • Mark Zuckerberg
  • Donald Trump
  • Bill Gates
  • Sean “Swag” Combs
  • Rich Kids of Instagram

For the Professional

  • Fireman

Definitely a profession that’ll get you brownie points with the ladies because of all the danger and drama involved. If you’re feeling particularly brave, carry around a plush kitten toy that you can “rescue” whenever there’s a pretty girl near by.

  • Hot Doctor

There’s a reason why girls love medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy. And part of that reason is very. Attractive. Doctors. So take a cue from hit TV shows (ok, and real life too) and get yourself some scrubs and a white doctor’s coat. We bet you’ll have girls lining up for check-ups in no time.

You could also try:

  • Sexy Sailor
  • Airline Pilot
  • Old-Fashioned Bartender
  • Circus Ringmaster
  • Policeman
  • Sheriff
  • Soccer Referee

For the Alternative Chick

  • Sexy Vampire

Kind of like Dracula but not quite. This year, we’re thinking of a sleeker, sexier vampire like one of the boys from True Blood. Keep is dark and mysterious with regular clothes and some fangs. We’re certain you’ll find someone to bite into quickly enough.

  • Matador

Sensuous and always in the way of danger, we love the idea of dressing up in ornate matador’s clothing for Halloween. Make eye contact with all your admirer’s and we’re sure you’ll hit bull’s eye with a beautiful belle.

You could also try:

  • Highlander
  • Surfer
  • Tennis Player
  • Viking
  • Hippie
  • Hipster
  • Cupid
  • 1920’s Mobster

For the Old-Hollywood Starlet

  • Marlon Brando (in The Godfather)

Everyone’s favorite patriarch, this is the perfect character to dress up as if you want instant recognition and to put on an accent. How we’d do it? We’d get someone to follow us around and play the theme music from The Godfather every time we walk into a room.

  • James Dean

Handsome beyond words, James Dean is one of the most beloved Hollywood actors of all time. Dressing up as him is easy—just pick a fitted white tee and jeans, use a lot of hair gel, and seductively dangle a cigarette just so from the corner of your mouth (no need to actually smoke it, girls like guys not ashtrays).

You could also try:

  • Humphrey Bogart
  • Gene Kelly
  • Laurence Olivier
  • Fred Astaire
  • Clark Gable
  • Charlie Chaplin
  • Carey Grant
  • Paul Newman
  • Sydney Poitier
