10 Great T-Shirt Alternatives to Halloween Costumes

By  | Last Updated:  

Looking for Halloween Party Ideas?

A lot of schools and daycare providers are doing away with wearing costumes on Halloween – instead turning it into a favorite t-shirt day. Just because your little guy doesn’t get to wear his Monsters Inc costume to school doesn’t mean he can’t still have Halloween spirit. You just need to do it a little differently, like wearing the cutest Sully hoodie ever.
There are so many darling options for outfits for boys these days! These 10 shirts will make it extra-fun for your son to get ready for school on Halloween day.

Halloween T-Shirt Ideas for Boys

Here are my picks for t-shirt alternatives to Halloween costumes:

  1. DC Comics Superman Shirt: Works great for Halloween Day at school and looks good enough to wear all year round. Love the attached hood.
  2. Scooby Doo Shirts: I had to include this idea as you get three shirts, each less than $10. I love the one that is just Scooby Doo’s face for Halloween Day.
  3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Turtle Trouble” Shirt: If he can’t wear a TMNT costume, this is a great second choice.
  4. Why Grow Up When There’s Lego: I might get this one for any time of year, not just Halloween! It’s a little bit awesome.
  5. Transformers Brave Bumble Tee: This one has a very cool striped cape.
  6. Lego Star Wars “Storm Trouper” Tee: I’m pretty sure there are a lot of dads that would wear this one.
  7. Skylanders Giants Tee: Bright and colorful. Love the double collar.
  8. Monsters Sully Fleece Hoodie: This one is my favorite. You can get a ton of characters including Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, Spiderman and more.
  9. Sega Sonic with Hood: Great for a Sonic fan that is a little older. He can still look cool – and we all know how important that is.
  10. Angry Birds Neon Fight: There are a lot of Angry Birds shirts out there but this one delivers the frantic feel of the game in one image.
