5 Halloween Costume Ideas for Cigar Aficionados
Aficionados, your trick or treating days may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in the Halloween spirit. Whether you have a party to go to this weekend or you're taking the kids out for their annual candy hunt – you’ll need a costume. So, we thought we’d give you some ideas – here are 5 cigar-smoking characters that you can dress up as this Halloween.
Tony Soprano Puffing Away on a Cigar.
“LEAVE YOU FEELING LIKE A DON”
TONY SOPRANO – Let’s start with the main character in ‘The Sopranos’ – Tony Soprano. He’s the New Jersey Mob boss, whose compelling nature made a mark in TV history. It’ll undoubtedly leave you feeling like a Don for the night! This is an easy DIY costume – just whip out your wackiest short-sleeved shirt and your halfway there! And add a pair of brown slacks, smart shoes and a gold chain. Take your costume to the next level by puffing on a big Cuban cigar – as Soprano is known for. The Romeo Y Julieta Wide Churchills Cigar are the perfect finishing touch to this costume!
Al Pacino as Tony Montana - 'Scarface'.
“AN ICON IN THE CIGAR WORLD”
TONY MONTANA – Another Tony, another mobster – this time it’s all about Mr Montana from ‘Scarface’. Played by Al Pacino, this character has gone down as somewhat of an icon in the cigar world. Al Pacino himself is recognised as an inspiration to men across the globe. Grab a white suit, red shirt and gold chain and you’re almost there. Finish the costume with a Cohiba smoke – such as the Cohiba Exquisitos Cigar; you’ll be sure to turn heads with this one!
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
“MADE PUFFING ON A SMOKE LOOK EFFORTLESS”
THE MAN WITH NO NAME – Clint Eastwood’s in ‘The Good, The Bad, The Ugly’ made puffing on a smoke look effortless – you’d catch him with a smoke between his teeth throughout the whole movie! He made history with one of the greatest Western standoffs in Hollywood history - the man with no name is simply iconic. You can easily re-create this character with a pair of jeans, a shirt and boots. Although the cowboy hat, poncho and toy gun may require a trip to the local Halloween shop! He may smoke cigarillos in the movie, but just switch it up for one of our slimmer cigars for sale online – like the La Gloria Cubana Medaille d'Or No.4 Cigar.
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men: The Last Stand.
“CIGAR-SMOKING COMIC BOOK HERO”
WOLVERINE – Wolverine has been sparking up cigars for the past 40 years – he truly is a cigar-smoking comic-book hero. So, ditch the razor and let your mutton chops loose – this will be one to impress the kids. All you need is a pair of jeans, a white vest and a leather jacket and your good to go! Store your favourite smoke is the S.T. Singular Cigar Case and tuck them in your jacket pocket to keep it safe.
Ron Perlman in Hellboy.
“YOU’LL LOOK JAW-DROPPING”
HELLBOY – This one is for those of you who are looking to go all out this year – something that requires more than digging to the back of your closet! You’ll need a mask or a hell of a lot of make-up – after all, it’s the one night of the year you can transform into another being. Hell Boy is known for enjoying a good old smoke now and then – making this a great costume for you aficionados. Ron Perlman, who plays him, loves a strong and flavoursome smoke – with his favourites being Montecristo, Bolivar and Partagas. Finish your costume with a cigar from one of these brands and you’ll look jaw-dropping!
