Aang was a main character in the anime show, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Airbending is only one of the four bending arts, but Aang was one of the only Air Nomads that could actually use all four air bending powers. Surprisingly enough, there is another bending art called energy bending that came before all of the other arts, and Aang mastered that as well. He is crazy talented with his skills and he became the very last airbender of his people.
Aang’s signature look involves A Brown Jumpsuit under an Orange Poncho and Orange Sash paired with Knee High Brown Boots, and a Wooden Stick that he uses as his personal staff. This is a perfect costume for all of our bald gentlemen out there because Aang has no hair! You will need to use some Blue Body Paint to draw an arrow on your head just like Aang. His look is pretty simple but unique to his character.
We all know Bane as the one who broke Batman’s back, which obviously goes to show just how hardcore this guy really is! Bane is one of Batman’s biggest enemies, and when we say biggest we mean BIGGEST. He has muscles where you didn’t even know you had muscles. Bane was imprisoned and used as a test subject with the drug, Venom. This drug enhanced Bane’s physical strength so high that even Batman struggles when coming face to face with him.
Bane is a top costume choice for anyone who is bald because he is one of the most popular Batman’s nemeses. To be the biggest, baddest, and baldest guy around, grab Bane’s Gunmetal Mask, his Leather Vest, Shearling Jacket, Tactical Pants, a Wrist Brace, and a pair of Jungle Boots. Break the Bat with Bane’s bald look!
You’ve seen Mitch Buchannon on the early years of Baywatch, but the new version of Mitch is played by The Rock! He is still the head honcho when it comes to the lifeguards, and is the one who gives out orders and trains the new lifeguards on the beach. He’s always been in love with his job and wouldn’t trade it for an office cubicle any day!
The Rock is the new Mitch and we don’t hear anyone complaining about that. He has the muscles and the charm, but there is one thing different- he’s bald! You can be the new and improved version of Mitch with your own bald hairstyle just by adding on a few costume pieces. Get in lifeguard mode with Board Shorts, a Tech Quarter-Zip Shirt, Aviator Sunglasses, a Baywatch Inflatable Float, a Lifeguard Fanny Pack, and a Plastic Whistle.
Whether you’re the one who read these books or your kids love Captain Underpants, he’s one of the most popular bald cosplay characters right now because the movie was recently released even though the books came out 20 years ago. Captain Underpants is the alter ego of Principal Krupp, and he has super powers to help the students solve their problems. That’s one awesome principal if you ask me!
Captain Underpants doesn’t wear too many layers, so make sure you are going to a nice and toasty cosplay convention! Don’t worry about a wig with this look, being bald is the best part about the costume. But you will want a Red Cape, a pair of White Classic Briefs, a Rubber Toilet Plunger, and The New Captain Underpants Collection. It’s off to save the world!
Deckard Shaw didn’t come into the Fast and the Furious films until Tokyo Drift, but even then we weren’t aware of his involvement. Shaw was hunting down Toretto and his crew because they killed his younger brother Owen. His main mission in life quickly became seeking revenge on the Fast and Furious family since they killed his own flesh and blood.
Deckard can be a little scary, but who doesn’t love dressing as the bad guy from time to time? This character is perfect if you’re one of our favorite bald guys because Deckard shaves his head as well! Keep your head shining and grab the coat with a bib, turtleneck shirt, a pair of work pants, combats boots, and all the accessories of a killer such as a machine gun, silver watch, and Aviator glasses!
Lord Voldemort- I mean, He Who Must Not Be Named, is the darkest name you could ever speak in the wizarding world and for good reason. He started out with a troubled childhood, but progressed even further into darkness as he became an adult. We all recognize his name as the wizard who attempted to murder Harry Potter, but instead, his entire world turned upside down all because of a young boy.
Lord Voldemort is one of the most identifiable characters in the Harry Potter series simply because he doesn’t have any hair! Oh, you’re a bald guy too? Then this look will be super easy and fun for you to pull off! The only pieces you will need for this costume are an Adult Voldemort Robe, some fake Witch Nails, a Voldemort Wand Replica, and of course a Voldemort Mask to get the full effect of this terrifying wizard! Good thing you already have the bald head covered!
Despicable Me quickly became popular in 2010 and everyone still loves to watch Gru in the following films! Felonius Gru attempted to be the bad guy, but once he met the three little girls Margo, Edith, and Agnes. Gru came from a long line of villains and thieves, but all of his plans (including his scheme to steal the moon) changed when he became the adoptive father of the three girls.
Gru is known for his bald head, large nose, and his unusual accent! Lucky enough, you already have the bald head! You can skip the bald cap, and go straight to grabbing a Foam Nose Prosthetic, a Turtleneck Pullover Sweater, a Zip-Up Jacket, a pair of Dress Pants, a Striped Scarf, and a pair of Men’s Dumont Boots. Give the accent a go to pull the entire costume together!
Charlie Brown is the central character in the Peanuts comic strips, movies, and television shows!

You can get the look of Charlie Brown with just a few items! One item you can mark off your list is the bald cap, so start off with his yellow Charlie Brown Shirt, Black Shorts, a pair of Brown Shoes, and some Yellow Ankle Socks. Charlie is always prepared for a little baseball, so don’t forget a Red Ball Cap, Baseball Glove, Baseball Bat and Baseball, and a Snoopy Doll to bring along with you!
Dominic Toretto translates to fast cars, right? Dom is the leader of the pack in all of the Fast and the Furious films, and he’s not exactly the guy you would want to pick a fight with (or date his younger sister, Mia). Dom has a tough outer shell, but when it comes to his friends, family, and his beloved cars, he would do anything to keep them all safe- and we mean anything!
Dominic is played by Vin Diesel in all of the movies, and he is known for always have a nicely shaven head! Which makes this costume perfect for all of our bald gentlemen out there.

What do you get when you mix an evil villain with a bald head and raunchy jokes? You got it- Dr. Evil! Mike Myers created this hilarious character in Austin Powers, and now we can’t stop making references to him ever since his first appearance in 1997. Now you want to look just like Dr. Evil? Well, you came to the right place!
Grab a bald cap if you haven’t shaved your head recently, and color in your brows with a Grey Brown Pencil. Get some Scar Wax to replicate the scar on Dr. Evil’s face, and you will need a Dr. Evil Costume along with some White Oxford Shoes, a Silver Pyramid Band Ring, and a Plush White Persian Cat because why wouldn’t you?
Drax just sounds like a superhuman name, doesn’t it? That’s Drax! He’s a superhuman who received all of his powers after dying in a car accident, but then he came back as a little more than his normal self. Drax can shoot energy blasts out of his hands and he has strength that is far more advanced than any humans on Earth.
Drax’s costume involves some some heavy duty materials, but one thing you won’t need is a wig! This guy is bald, so that’s one less thing you have to worry about if you are in the same boat. Get yourself a Drax Costume, a pair of grey Spandex Gloves, some Black Leather Pants, and tall Buckle Boots for the necessities of this look. Add Drax’s accessories starting with a Drax the Destroyer Dagger, a Poly Tool Holder, a Black Studded Leather Belt, and some Concrete Kneepads.
If you’re trying to find one of the cruelest villains possible, then you have accomplished your goal! Darth Maul not only has the dark personality, but his looks scream wicked! He was stolen as a young child by Darth Sidious and became his apprentice. Darth Maul didn’t have much hope from there in becoming a hero of his people, and he took the darkest path indeed.
Even though Darth Maul made the list of bald characters, you will need to add some accessories to your own bald head. Grab the Darth Maul Latex Mask that comes with the patterns and spikes. Add on the Darth Maul Costume and Black Tunic for Darth Maul’s dark look. Finish it all off with a pair of tall Black Boots, a Jedi Belt Bundle, and a red Double Sided Light Saber.
Who needs super powers when you’re the biggest and strongest guy around? Not Kingpin! He’s known for his brute strength that can stand up against superheroes like Spider-Man, Daredevil, and even The Avengers! He’s one big bloke that took over an entire mob empire, and makes us want to dress as the super villain instead of the superhero for once!

People say they would do whatever it takes to care for their families, but it wasn’t until we met Walter White that we saw someone who truly meant that!

This little devil is responsible for the majority of destruction and violence on the show!
Like most babies, Stewie hasn’t grown any hair of his head just yet, so this makes for a great costume if you’re a baldy yourself.
