50 Clever Halloween Costumes For Couples
Not sure what to be for Halloween? The only thing better than dressing up as your favorite character by yourself is dressing up as your favorite pair of characters in the form of the best couples costume ever.
Think about how much fun it is dragging your spouse or significant other into the cute tedium of picking a matching costume! But you don’t want to be boring, and you certainly don’t want to be irrelevant to the times, so you’ll need a great place to start poring over Halloween costume ideas for the special someone(s) that you are your partner are going to be.
Halloween is a time for fun, relaxing, partying, and generally acting a touch loopier than you do the rest of the year. It may also be a time for spiced pumpkin everything and perhaps making some poor choices (like misjudging how badly those new shoes are actually going to rub your feet raw), but your Halloween costume should NEVER be one of those bad decisions, and that, my friends, is why we’re here to help!
Don’t just dress up as someone or something boring — make it really count and get you and your s.o. to become the belle of whatever fall ball you choose! Scare the neighbor kids, drink too much seasonal IPAs at a local kegger, or dance with all the other ghouls and goblins to your heart’s content.
Just don’t be that couple that dresses up as “themselves” as your costume.
Let’s not forget that Halloween is basically a free-for-all as far as clothing goes, so you can make your evening wear as extravagant or DIY as you want! Pick your favorite character couples costume or punny costumes, and go out and have a blast. Try to remember that it’s impossible to stay classy while you’re choking down water trying to gnaw on as many apples as you can.
Here are 50 of some of our favorite couples costumes that promise to capture your imagination and get all the cobweb-covered outfit ideas churning! Happy haunting!
