TV Costumes: Community, Breaking Bad, Teen Wolf, Sherlock Holmes

Looking for a little costume inspiration for Oct. 31? We're here to help!

Halloween is just around the corner, giving TV fans the perfect opportunity to dress up as their favorite characters for the big day. Yesterday, we offered up seven costume suggestions for those planning to dress up solo, and today is all about the bromances.

That's right, we're helping you and your bestie dress up as some of TV's best male BFFs, including Breaking Bad's Walt and Jesse (Just no meth empire, please!), Community's Troy and Abed (Witty one-liners optional!) and Supernatural's Winchester brothers (Angel sidekick not included!)...

Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul

Frank Ockenfels 3/AMC

The Characters: Walter White and Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad
How to be Street Clothes Walt: Raid your dad's closet for some khakis, a green button-up shirt, tan jacket and some nice big glasses. Shave your head (or get a bald cap, or one of Walt's fedoras), and either grow a nice goatee, or find a fake one you can glue on. If Halloween happens to be a bit warm this year, you could even ditch the khakis and show off your tighty whities (with the shirt slightly tucked in). Optional props: A pizza, a small vial of ricin, a barrel.
How to be Street Clothes Jesse: You'll need a graphic tee of some kind (preferably in yellow or red), a knit beanie, a way-too-big sweatshirt, saggy jeans, and a cigarette.
How to be Lab Clothes Walt or Jesse: Buy these yellow lab overalls and a gas mask and you're all set.

The Characters: Troy Barnes and Abed Nadir from Community
How to be Abed: You'll need your coolest comic-book T-shirt, some skinny jeans and a cardigan.
How to be Troy: Jeans, a black and gray letterman's jacket, a cool but comfy shirt underneath and a great big, heart-melting smile.
How to be Abed in the morning: You'll need a cardigan, a button down and a bowtie, but most importantly: this mug.
How to be Troy in the morning: A button down, suit jacket, and that mug.

Teen Wolf Cast


The Characters: Scott McCall and Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf
How to be Scott: Get out that theatrical makeup! You need sideburns that are almost a beard, an extreme widow's peak, along with some wolfy teeth and red contacts, to show off your alpha status. Just don't forget that double banded tattoo around your left biceps (but you can just use a marker).
How to be Stiles: You mostly just need a plaid shirt, an ironic graphic tee, and some big brown eyes. You can also carry a baseball bat, in case you need to do absolutely no damage to any giant mega-wolves.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Sherlock


The Characters: Sherlock and Watson from Sherlock
How to be John Watson: Jeans, a cable knit sweater, a sensible black jacket, a cane, and an exasperated expression.
How to be Sherlock Holmes: Put on some black pants, a cardigan, a button down, a long, dark grey pea coat, if you want an actual replica of the actual coat, and want to pay 750 pounds) and a blue scarf and then please see if you can tell us how you survived the fall, because we can't wait until 2014!

Supernatural, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki

Liane Hentscher/The CW

The Characters: Sam and Dean Winchester from Supernatural
How to be Dean and/or Sam: Lazy people, feel free to pull from your own clothes for both of the boys, as they have mostly worn the same clothes for all nine seasons: Boots, boot-cut jeans, T-shirts, plaid shirts and cargo jackets. For Dean, throw on a well-worn leather jacket. Bonus points for clever accessories, such as the boys' matching tattoos (that prevent them from being possessed), Dean's "Samulet" necklace (Still miss you, boo!), guns, rock salt, etc.
How to be FBI Agents Dean and Sam: Nice suits, sunglasses and fake badges with alter egos based on famous rock stars.
