Updated July 20, 2017

If it's almost Halloween and all you have is a pair of leather trousers, but no costume, don't worry. With leather trousers, you can make several different costumes for both men and women. If you look through your closet, you might already have several of the things required to complete some costume ideas. If you do not, the props will not be hard to find.


Use the leather trousers to dress up as a biker. Both men and women can use this costume idea. Just pair up the trousers with a leather jacket or a black T-shirt, a bandanna and boots. You can also add a jean jacket or a jean vest. Men can let their beards grow, and men and women can apply fake tattoos.

Rock Star

Leather trousers are favourites of rock stars. You can pair them with a fitted T-shirt or a tank top. To add more flair, pair the trousers with a sequin-trimmed shirt. Guys can also just pair the trousers with a leather vest or ripped T-shirt exposing your torso. If you want the classic rocker look, buy a long blond wig.

Selene From "Underworld"

Selene from the movie "Underworld" is also an easy costume to make. All you need are leather trousers, a tight black long-sleeved turtleneck or a fitted leather jacket, a fake gun belt, fake guns, fangs and really red lips.


Leather trousers can also be used to make a cat costume. All you need is a fitted black top, a clip-on tail, cat ears and make-up to draw a cat face. This costume is for both men and women.
