Cartoon characters come and go, but if there's one character that has stood the test of time, it's the lovable and adorable Mickey Mouse. So, it's not really surprising that the Mickey Mouse costume is very popular among young boys and adult men alike. It's full of fun and many can't help but smile when they see someone dressed as Mickey Mouse as it reminds them of treasured childhood memories.
Ideal for the Kids and the Kids at Heart
No one is too old to wear a Mickey Mouse costume. It is one of those costumes that you will never outgrow and will never get dated. Young tots will look irresistibly cute in it while men will look innocently charming. And that's one thing men of these days often lack - innocence. The Mickey Mouse costume is one of those costume ideas for men that are very easy to pull off. The base garb is a black sweater and a pair of black leggings. Wear a pair of red shorts over the leggings. You can put padding underneath the shorts so it looks fluffy. Slip on a pair of yellow shoes. Don't forget to wear gloves. Lastly, complete the look with costume mouse ears and black clown nose.
What You Need for a Cute Mickey Mouse Costume

- Over-sized yellow shoes

A Comforting Sense of Familiarity and Childhood
Looking closely, there's really nothing fancy about the Mickey Mouse costume. So what makes it really charming? Well, it's basically because everyone can relate to it. At least once, Mickey Mouse has been part of our lives, be it in the movies we watched when we were kids or during our fun trips to Disneyland with our families. It's a reminder that every once in a while, men can be young innocent boys again.
