Halloween is one of the sexiest, craziest and most fun celebrations for couples. It’s also the time where you might be stressing about couples Halloween costume ideas. I love the fact that you can really step outside of your comfort zone when choosing an outfit with your partner. You can take this time to really play to your wild, fun and creative sides. Halloween night is celebrated on October 31st, but for those who love Halloween, the party really lasts for about a week! You can choose to be someone different at each new event. Here’s a few couples Halloween costume ideas for you to help you pick the perfect costume.
1. Fairy Tale Stories
There’s something sweet and a little naughty about dressing up as your favorite fairy tale story characters. This is the perfect opportunity to play the damsel in distress, while your real life Prince Charming comes to your rescue. Or you can play the wicked witch and cast a spell on your unsuspecting sorcerer to be your personal slave for the evening. The night will end with you trading the fairy tale book to role playing a super hot fantasy.
2. Marvel Comic Heroes
What couple doesn’t want to play superheroes or super villains for a night? Couples can act as allies or enemies, depending on their moods and personalities. I encourage you to be someone close to your soul, so you can really get into character. Some favorites are; the Avengers, X-Men or Fantastic Four. Even if Marvel comic heroes is not your thing, this is a great opportunity to explore the various characters and decide how far you’re willing to test different sides of your characters.
3. TV Reality Shows
This can be a really fun Halloween costume for couples as you carefully choose characters to play. There are so many popular reality shows to choose from like Jersey Shore, The Hills, Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Bachelorette, American Idol or the Apprentice. Half the fun is spent on choosing who you are going to be.
4. Game Show or Late Night Host
The great thing about playing a show or game host, is how creative you can be with each other. You can choose who will be the interviewer, and who will be the special guest. You can be Larry King interviewing Lady Gaga. Or maybe you’re Oprah interviewing Michael Jackson. If you’re choosing to be the game show host on the Price is Right or Wheel of Fortune, your partner could dress as one of the prizes. Anything goes when it comes to Halloween costumes. The more creative and unique it is, the more memorable it will be for both of you.
I’ve seen some very interesting food pairing costumes. Most people have favorite foods which seem to be the ideal match! 2 peas in a pod. Bacon and eggs. Peanut butter and jelly. Ham and cheese. Police officer and a doughnut. Ketchup and mustard. Milk and cookies. Salt and pepper. Pretzels and beer. These are not your typical “character” type ideas, so creating the costumes and sporting them can be quite hilarious!
6. Sports Lovers
If you and your partner are sports fanatics, you can show your love of sports and Halloween all in one night! You can go as a crazed sports fan who stole the mascot. Or, be the famous athlete with his agent. There are many ways to make it a little more interesting. You can be Tiger Woods with the sexy caddy. Or Serena Williams with her water boy. Whatever you choose to do, have fun with it and try thinking outside the box.
7. Era Costumes
Dress from the 20’s , 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s etc… The best place to look for these types of outfits is in mom & dad’s closet firstly; then to the grandparents. Alternatively, head to your closest thrift store and carefully comb through the aisles. You will be sure to find clothing from a certain era you can carefully piece together, without a lot of expense!
So there you go! A list of 7 couples Halloween costume ideas to get your mind flowing with possible outfits. Remember that half the fun is trying on, and taking off the costumes you make 🙂
