Getting dressed up for Halloween is always fun, but it’s even better when you’re planning a costume with your partner! If you’re looking for awesome couples’ costumes, you’ve come to the right place! Here are six ideas for you and your partner this Halloween!
1. Things That Go Together
A classic approach to Halloween costumes is to dress as things that go together. Peanut butter and jelly, moon and stars, Oreos and milk, etc.
You get the idea! Get creative with your costumes, and don’t overlook the usefulness of DIY. After all, it’ll be challenging to find a costume for a glass of milk.
But alas! You can become the “ice-cold milk and an Oreo cookie” by making this costume from scratch. It’s easy to think of stuff that goes together, and when it comes to Halloween, the more bizarre, the better for your couples halloween costumes.
2. Partners In Crime
Another approach to couples’ Halloween costumes is to dress as partners in crime. You can take the famous angle and dress like well-known dynamic duos such as Harry Potter and Hermione, Bonnie and Clyde, or Batman and Catwoman. Think outside the box and go as one of the many partners in crime from Pulp Fiction!
There are so many ways to go about this one. Use your thinking cap and get started! If you can’t think of any existing partners in crime, why not create your own? You’ll keep everyone else guessing at your costumes, and it will be a silly inside joke that your get to share with your partner. Think of alter-egos and go from there!
3. Opposites Attract Costumes
Let your inner weirdo shine with opposites attract costumes. If you and your partner are an example of opposites attract, go with costumes that suggest this. Some ideas might include: the angel and the devil, Danny and Sandy from Grease, or be super literal with this idea and have one partner go as a plug and the other as an outlet.
Another way to approach this is to dress up as opposites that do not go well together if you want to keep things funny! You could go for water and electricity, or the lovers from Licorice Pizza.
4. Couples From Movies
Go as Juno and Polly from Juno, the hot and steamy parents from The Addams Family, or Jack and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. There are so many great couples’ costumes to choose from, and you’re sure to find a movie you both love and would be willing to dress up as.
Scary movies alone have a lot of cute yet creepy couples to pick through. How about Mr. Sweeny and Mrs. Lovett from Sweeny Todd? Fiona and Shrek? Take your pick!
5. Celebrity Couples Costumes
Dress up as celebrity couples. Think Angelina and Brad, or Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. Let out your inner superstar this Halloween by dressing up as some of Hollywood’s famous couples with your partner. Need inspiration? Check out celebrity biopics on streaming services for ideas.
6. General Couples’ Themes
Share a costume idea for a cute couple look. Dress up as nerds (but choose the right glasses for your face), your favorite animal, or characters from an age old television show you both love. Lucy…. I’m home!
If you’re ready to admit how much you secretly love to binge-watch Friends, go as one of the many couples in that show. Rachel and Ross? You know they were on a break.
The Bottom Line
Coming up with cute couples’ costumes is easier than you think! Make this Halloween one to remember. Consider the ideas above as you and your partner work to create the ultimate Halloween couples’ costume yet!
