Geralt (The Witcher)
We have a few great bearded Halloween costume ideas based on video game characters — let’s start with one of the most popular: Geralt from the Witcher. The game series was a cult classic for years, even before Henry Cavill’s portrayal on the Netflix series took the world by storm.
The groundwork for this costume includes long silver hair (either natural or a wig) and a short-medium graying beard.
Rick Grimes (The Walking Dead)
If you’re rocking a short beard and are a fan of The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes is an obvious choice for this Halloween. So start practicing your southern accent, grab your cowboy hat, and get ready — Sheriff Rick is ready to hit the streets, and he ain’t playing around. It’s a simple costume; besides the beard and hat, all you need is a button-up shirt, badge, and to get a little dirty.
Joe & Ellie (The Last of Us)
Another Halloween costume for bearded men that comes from a video game is Joel and Ellie from the Last of Us. It’s a simple, easy costume perfect for any bearded man with black or dark hair. All you really need is a checkered green shirt, first-aid kit, and brick (for Ellie) to complete this costume.
Ragnar Lothbrok (Vikings)
Do you have a long beard and undercut? It’s a popular style (and for a good reason) that many men are rocking this year. If you’re one of them, you can pull off the Ragnar Lothbrok look this Halloween. From the Netflix hit Vikings that millions watched and enjoyed, this costume will get you recognized. Plus, it’s an excuse to keep growing out your beard — we think that’s a bonus worth mentioning!
Kratos (God of War)
Here’s the perfect Halloween costume idea for you bald and bearded men out there: Kratos. God of War remains one of Playstation’s biggest hits, with fans of all ages and gaming habits.
The protagonist, Kratos, is a symbol of strength, and this costume is perfect for any bearded gamers out there. If you don’t feel like shaving your head, you can still pick up a bald cap to nail this Halloween costume for bearded men.

So you have a beard, but do you have an afro? Probably not, but that’s not a problem. Bob Ross is a bearded Halloween costume staple that everyone loves.
All you need is some casual jeans, a denim shirt, an afro (or wig — we don’t expect you to grow your hair and get a perm just for a Halloween costume!), and a paint palette. And if your beard isn’t starting to gray yet, a little temporary beard dye can help complete the Bob Ross look.
By now, most of us have seen DC’s hit movie Aquaman. Not only was the movie great, but we believe everyone can agree that Jason Momoa made for an epic character. So why not take advantage of that epicness for Halloween this year?
If you have the hair and beard and don’t mind splashing some cash on a more involved costume, Momoa’s Aquaman can make for one of the best-looking bearded costumes for 2022.
Jon Snow (Game of Thrones)
Regardless of where you show off your costume this Halloween, you’ll likely be surrounded by the typical costumes — Harley Quinn, Spiderman, etc. So if you want to stand out, how about being a little different and choosing Jon Snow? It might be a little trickier than some other costumes on our list to pull off, but it will be worth it.
Plus, with the popularity of Game of Thrones, your local Halloween shop will likely have everything you need, making getting started with this costume simple. So get your beard ready, and you’re good to go.
Ron Swanson (Parks and Recreation)
Are you more of a mustache kind of guy?

Tuck your polo shirt into your chinos, grab a leather belt, and your Ron Swanson look is ready to go!
Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean)
If you want to go a crazier route with your facial hair this Halloween, why not dress as Jack Sparrow (beads, bandana, and all)? This Pirates of the Caribbean classic character is a long-time favorite for Halloween parties everywhere.
And because of Jack Sparrow’s popularity, you won’t have a difficult time finding a costume anywhere. That means you can spend more time memorizing his crazy quotes instead of shopping and sewing.
