Easy Halloween Costumes For Fun-Loving Geeks

Redneck Avengers cosplayed by lisalouwho08 and friends.

We’ll be sharing Halloween costume ideas throughout this month, like the costume ideas for couples we posted this morning. Our focus is on costumes you could actually make with a reasonable expenditure of time and money, and this gallery is along those same lines, with a selection of Halloween costumes for geeks. Whether your jam is Space Jam or Star Wars or The Avengers or X-Men or even video games, we think you’ll find something here that gives you some inspiration. Or that makes you want to re-watch Space Jam.

When you’re finished checking these out, here are some of our other Halloween costume ideas, and we’ll be updating this list throughout the month:
