Certain characters and celebrities are basically icons for suspenders nowadays. I'm talking about the Larry King type of guys. The guys that are so well known for wearing suspenders that we even dress up as them for Halloween.
Suspenders are a great accessory for costume parties. However, there are so many suspenders icons that it's hard to choose a favorite. So we've gone ahead and put together our top twelve favorite costumes with suspenders!

This is an awesome lederhosen suspenders costume but it takes more than just suspenders to make it work. You need to have the entire German shindig. This includes shoes, pants, shirt, and of course the beer to go with it.
Classic Geek Suspenders Costume
If you're a comic book fan then this is the costume for you. It's also relatively simple to pull off. Just get yourself a geeky t-shirt and a pair of suspenders and you're pretty much good to go. A pair of framed glasses is a big bonus.

Despicable Me Costume
