Halloween is nearly here, and if you’re a wrestling fan, you’ve got one thought on your mind: “How can I dress up as my favorite wrestler this year”? Yes, the unique and complex characters of WWE are perfect for Halloween costumes, as long as you don’t mind the fact that most people aren’t going to know who you’re trying to be. And for the wrestling fan on a budget, we’ve wracked our brains and figured out a few wrestling costumes that you can make with limited materials and minimal cash investments.
Just one note before we get started, some of these costumes may assume that you are able able to grow a beard. Don’t worry, though, if you’re too young or otherwise follicly challenged in that aspect, face paint serves as a decent substitute.

Frankly, this look works for any wrestler that makes a habit of wearing a business suit (Vince McMahon, Triple H, maybe you have a weird desire to look like Corporate Kane), but it’s the little things that set everyone’s least favorite tax man apart from the crowd. First of all, you won’t need the whole suit, just a dress shirt and pants, with some nice shoes. Then you’ll need to pick up a briefcase (traditionally, IRS’ was shiny and made of metal for some reason, but not many people have those lying around), a cheap pair of glasses (the tinier and more rectangular the frames, the better), and finish the whole thing off with a skinny tie and a pair of bright red suspenders. Frankly, the suspenders are key. They’re what set IRS apart from every other person who wrestled in a cheap suit. Apparently government tax accountants don’t wear belts, or something.
