So, you’ve decided to attend a Halloween party as a matching pair?
You’re in just the right place to find an eye-catching, show-stopping costume for couples.
Ladies, is your guy a bit wild & needs a little taming, or is he really a big pussy cat? Either way, the lion & safari girl costume is a really novel idea.
If you want to be more traditional there are plenty of options available to you too. There’s the gothic vampire couple costume which gives the phase dining out together a whole new meaning & the swashbuckling pirate & pirate wench duo which is perfect for setting off on an adventure together.
Another way to select what you are going to wear is to take a leaf out of the storybooks & try a fairy tale couples costume for size. How about Cinderella & Prince Charming, Shrek & Princess Fiona, or my personal favorite, Little Red Riding Hood & the Big Bad Wolf.
If you don’t want too much hassle, but still want to get people talking & giggling at Halloween then the bacon & egg costumes are a really simple but effective idea. There's also peanut butter and jelly costume that's different and very popular.
No need to worry about spending hours getting ready or putting on elaborate makeup, just slip these two outfits over your head & you’re ready to go.
Fabulous if you can’t get home after work & have to run straight to the party.
If you’ve got your heart set on funny costumes for couples then here are some more ideas for humorous Halloween costumes for couples.
The fork & spoon costume set. I’ve heard of being born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but never over your whole head. This one’s a definite attention grabber & another easy low maintenance outfit.
The plug & socket costume pair is a shocking couples costume to electrify any party atmosphere.
Along the same lines comes the ball & chain costume & the bowling ball & pin Halloween costume.
Funny ensembles are great because they get people talking & make for interesting pictures & terrific memories of your Halloween together.
If you want to spend a bit more time on your get-up then you could consider one of the historical costumes that come in twos like Antony & Cleopatra, Robin Hood & Maid Marion or the suave gunslinger & saucy saloon girl western costumes.
This his & her gangster get up is icy cool & will make sure you stand out from the rest of the mob.
If you want to be a scary pair & frighten all your neighbors then you could both wear paired ghost costumes or matching, he devil & she-devil clothing or even scary Skeleton Couple outfit.
Many of these ideas are available as plus size costumes for coupes as well as regular ones, so it doesn’t matter what your size you can still pair up your Halloween outfits & have a real good time.
Want a laid-back look?
The Sonny & Cher costume is groovy for his & her hippies. Other couple's hippie costume includes some from the 60s and 70s.
Grab your inspiration from TV & film & attend get together as two of your favorite cartoon or movie characters.
There’s Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Popeye & Olive Oyl & if you find yourself needing a costume for two guys then there’s always Sesame Street’s Bert & Ernie.
For Flintstone fans you could pick Pebbles & Bam Bam, Betty & Barney Rubble or go for a Fred & Wilma Flintstone costume.
Often with movies, you get more than one choice so these are great if you’re going out as a group. A Dorothy costume from the Wizard of Oz could be matched up with a tinman, a scared cat lion, a scatty scarecrow, or a wicked witch of the west costume. For 300 movie fans, a warrior Spartan Costume for pairs can be a great idea.
Ole! Another light-hearted double dress up is the bullfighter & bull costume.
If you want a little more spice you could take a look at some of the sexy couples costumes available which include the butler & French maid costume, the caveman & cavewoman duo & his & her sailor outfits. Sexy sailors go great with mystical mermaid costumes too.
When you’re spoilt for choice you could start with the type of gear that you want. Do you want to be funny & give your friends a laugh, do you want to be spooky & go for scary couples’ costumes or do you want to go down want to push the boat out & find a couples Halloween costume that will win all the prizes?
Are you always the first to arrive? Then how about a tempting Adam & Eve costume? Don’t forget your apple now.
Some outfits like this cheeky pair are always thought about as one of a couple, but if you use a little imagination you can come up with even more weird & wonderful combinations. You could put Alice in Wonderland with either the Mad Hatter, the white rabbit or the Queen of hearts. And talking of rabbits you could have a magician & rabbit pairing too. There are really no limits to what you can do with your look, it’s they’re your call & you make the rules.
Dressing up for Halloween is lots of fun & coordinating costumes with your partner can be double the fun.
Finally, here’s a few other dynamic duos that you can pick from. Corpse bride & groom, Bonnie & Clyde, vampire & innocent victim, god & goddess, king & queen (good or evil), witch & wizard, Peter Pan & Tinkerbell, Mr & Mrs Potato Head, Gomez & Morticia Addams, Batman & Catwoman (or Batgirl or Robin for that matter), cop & robber, Ninja Couple Outfit, Harry Potter & Hermione…………the list is endless.
