Regardless of whether you're taking on the role of a swashbuckling pirate or the 16th president of the United States, a beard complements or completes many Halloween outfits. It's not hard to pull off the incredibly hairy, bearded look; numerous costume companies make easily applied adhesive polyester beards, and you can make your own.
The classic pirate outfit is a Halloween favourite. A poofy, well-manicured Jack Sparrow-esque pirate beard should be more than enough to send a shiver down a person's spine. A wide assortment of beards work with the pirate theme, from scruffy to a midnight shadow, somewhat neatly kept to bushy. Accessories abound for the bearded-pirate look, including a plastic pirate, a pirate wig, long jacket and others.
Known more for his stark, white full beard, jolly old Saint Nick makes a great Halloween beard costume idea. Most Santa Claus costume sets are equipped with a beard, eyebrows, wig, and signature red robe and cap.
The fictional Uncle Sam figure turned iconic after the federal government's "I Need You" World War I and II recruitment posters. Uncle Sam's face is still highly recognisable; so is his signature goatee beard. To pull off this look, all you need is a long, sheep-hair-like tuft of white costume facial hair and a blue coat. An Uncle Sam top hat and red bow tie add to this costume.
Legend has it that Lincoln couldn't tell a lie. Honest Abe is portrayed sporting a signature, thick but well-groomed beard. Additionally, a top hat, black coat and white, collared undershirt help complete this Halloween idea.
A Paul Bunyan costume is an automatic crowd-pleaser. All that required is a pair of blue jeans, a red flannel T-shirt, a winter hat, a pair of boots, a plastic hatchet and a bountiful, self-adhesive polyester beard. To expand upon this theme, maybe consider a bearded Paul Bunyan zombie.
