Tricked Out Halloween Get-ups For Cigar Guys: and how to…Treat Your Inner Cigar Icon With Flair

By Elisa Jordan

Invited to a Halloween party and want to incorporate your favorite hobby? We have you covered. Here are some costumes that will reveal your hidden persona and require cigars as a finishing touch.

Wolverine

Wearing a Wolverine costume will bring out the bad-ass in you.

The beloved Marvel Comics X-Men comic book character was brought to life by Hugh Jackman in movie adaptions. As many fans have noted, the comic book and movie versions of Wolverine look distinctively different. When following the lead of Jackman’s Wolverine, retractable claws, muttonchops, brown leather jacket, white tank top, boots and cigar are the main style signatures. This costume is so popular that items relating to Wolverine costumes can be easily purchased online.
