Keanu Reeves has played some epic characters over the years and many of them are classics. The internet loves Keanu too, and his pictures and Keanu-inspired memes now litter the web. So, if you are looking for costume inspiration, you may want to try one of Keanu’s many looks. The great thing is that if you pull off these classic looks, everyone will be able to guess your costume. Here are some great Keanu-inspired costumes to try out this Halloween.
This costume idea isn’t based on one of Keanu’s characters but instead comes from the Keanu sad meme that circulated around in the past. In the meme, Keanu was pictured looking scruffy and sad while he sat alone on a park bench eating a sandwich.
- A beard (scruffy but not too long)
- A dark blazer
- a sandwich
- the saddest expression you can muster
This is a simple costume that is easy to put together and perfect if you don’t have much time to assemble the look.
In Constantine, we got to see Keanu kick some demon butt when he played the chain-smoking supernatural detective John Constantine. The best thing about this costume is that you will have most of the components lying around the house and you won’t have to break the bank.
- White dress shirt
- Black dress pants
- Black tie
- Black trench coat (optional)
- Fake/real cigarette
- A bible
- A devil-may-care attitude
If you want to reinvigorate one of Keanu’s more hard-core characters and exorcise some demons this may be the look for you come Halloween.
Bill & Ted Keanu
In Bill and Teds Excellent Adventures Keanu played the role of a time-traveling metalhead slacker named Ted Logan. If you want to be the life of the party, then try out this classic Keanu look. Like the other costumes in the list, it’s a pretty simple costume to put together because you probably own most of the pieces in the outfit.
- White sweatpants (rolled up to the knee)
- Black baggy shorts (to go over the sweatpants)
- White band shirt
- Black vest
- Chuck tailors
- Excellent Ted attitude
To master ‘the Ted’ you might want to check out the movie to get the knack of the character. Once you have the mannerisms down you can party on, dudes!
John Wick Keanu
If dressing like Ted from Bill and Teds Adventure is too low key for you, then how about embracing your inner assassin and dressing as John Wick?
- A black three-piece suite (a two-piece will also work)
- Black dress shirt
- Black smart shoes
- Toy gun
- Toy/stuffed animal dog
- John wick wig
- John Wick, nothing-to-lose attitude
Now, this costume does require you to own a 3-piece fitted suite or at least a two-piece suit that fits well. If you don’t one and are committed to this costume you could always rent the perfect suite. This Sauvé look will have you looking dapper at any party!
