I know it’s a bit early but Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. And, before I get any of that, “You’re too old to dress up for Halloween” bullshit – I don’t care. I’ll be dressing up for Halloween until the day I die. What can I say? It’s pretty awesome to dress up as whatever or whomever you want. But, what about couple costume ideas? If you’re stumped – here are some that I’ve thought of over the many years I’ve been thinking of Halloween Costumes: (This article may contain affiliate links)
Arrow & Black Canary
I’m sure this one has been done but it would sure as hell be in the running in a costume contest. They did kind of used to date…so, it totally works as a couple costume idea.
Daenerys & a Dragon
Who wouldn’t want to be the mother of dragons? There’s a lot of ways this could work for a couple’s Halloween costume idea. One is Daenerys and the other is a dragon. Personally, I would go with Drogon, but if red & black isn’t your color – there are two others. This would be SO cool for a couple.
Since GOT is so popular, here are some other couple or even group costume ideas that would really be fantastic for Halloween 2018:
- Cersei & Jaime Lannister (Complete with the golden hand)
- Khalissi & Khal Drogo
- Brienne of Tarth & The Hound (somebody please do this and send me the picture – PLEASE!)
- Men of the Night’s Watch & Wildlings
Tequila & Lime
Drink & Mix combinations are great couples’ costumes. For this one, one person can be a bottle of tequila while the other is a lime. These can be super cute Halloween costume ideas & be created VERY cheap. Here are some other drink combos that you could mix & match this Halloween:
- Jack Daniels & Coke
- Martini & Olive
- Beer & Solo Cup
Rick & Michonne/ Michonne & Zombie
Eh, “The Walking Dead” has really gone downhill in my opinion but it’s not the characters’ fault! You could even do a couple’s zombie costume. Depending on your makeup skills, a zombie costume could be pretty awesome.
Hannibal Lector & Clarice Starling
This would be a great “odd couple” pairing for Halloween that would definitely turn some heads. It’s also a very inexpensive option. For Hannibal, you would only need his infamous mask and for Clarice, a pants suit and FBI badge would do the trick.
Baby & Otis Driftwood
If you haven’t seen “The Devil’s Rejects”, I highly recommend the movie. These two are a brother-sister pair of psychopaths who say some pretty amazing lines. Yes, I know, they are brother and sister, but this totally works as a costume idea. And, if you happen to have another friend – Captain Spaulding is a costume I’ve never seen while I’ve been out, so it would be very unique.
Chucky & Tiffany
This would also be an inexpensive costume idea and it would be ADORABLE. I have seen many different versions of this one done and they have all looked amazing 🙂
A Purge Couple
This couple’s costume idea is on the cheaper end. You both just need a creepy mask that reminiscent of the purge films, some clothes splattered with fake blood and the faux weapon of your choosing. I love this idea and there’s so many combinations that would work well. This idea could even be done with a group.
Angel & Devil
Yes, it’s a classic but there are many ways to style this up and make it look pretty awesome. You could even do a reverse where you’re both either an angel or devil but dressed in different colors. Think horns, wings, tails and halos. There are lots of cool ways this timeless idea could really be unique. What about a dark angel & a light angel? There’s a lot that could be done.
Dexter & Victim
Remember Showtime’s “Dexter”? It was a pretty awesome show, (for the first 4 seasons or so). Anyhow, one of you could dress up as the serial killer who followed his dad’s “code” and the other could be wrapped in plastic wrap – like Dexter’s victims always found themselves on his infamous table. It’s a pretty cool couple’s costume idea.
Daredevil & Elektra
Elektra isn’t my favorite character -especially where “The Defenders” was concerned. But, I LOVE Matt Murdock – lawyer by day and kick-ass vigilante by night. You could wear his amazing vigilante costume, or just wear his signature glasses and suit. For Elektra, a basic “ninja” type costume would work. Together they make a pretty kick ass team, so it’s an excellent idea for a couple’s costume.
Gamora & Starlord
I’ve actually seen a lot of Gamora & Starlord costumes online this year. Guardians of the Galaxy are a great team and a combo of any of the members would be a great couple’s costume idea.
Mermaid & Pirate
This couple’s costume isn’t too original but can always be made to look incredible. With the right combination of accessories, you could both look pretty cool this Halloween.
Gomez & Morticia Addams
These two are one of my favorite fictional couples ever! They totally embrace each other and share the same morbid interests. The costumes would be great for any Halloween.
Harley Quinn & The Joker
This psychotic couple is a favorite of many. Since their looks are so different depending the movie you liked best, or the comics – this couples costume could be done in a variety of ways.
Here are some more Ideas for Couples Costumes:
- Beauty & The Beast
- Little Red Riding Hood & The big bad Wolf
- Captain America & Black Widow
- A cop & a prisoner
- Gangster Couple
- Spartan Couple
- Alice & The Mad Hatter
- Dumb & Dumber (They have female suits that look really cool).
- Jack & Sally (Nightmare before Christmas)
- Reverse Roles (Dressing up as your partner while they dress up as you is a very unique couples costume)
- Aladdin & Jasmine
- Cowboy Couple
- Ken & Barbie
- Priest & Nun
- Ghost Busters
- David S. Pumpkins & Skeleton
It’s Halloween, so have fun! Get creative with your costumes. DIY costumes are some of the best I’ve seen. I still have no clue what I’m going to be this year, but luckily there is time.
