Happy Halloween, everyone! Tis the season to indulge in tons of fun-sized candy, enjoy horror movie marathons and tour the most terrifying haunted houses with your BFFs. But you want to know the best part? Getting to flaunt your own couple costumes, of course! Though the holiday is already in full swing, you and your S.O. are probably still on the lookout for some clever couple costume ideas. Perhaps you're doing a competitive costume contest, or maybe you and your partner are totally stressing out over what to wear for a last-minute party. But hey, it happens to the best of us — so we get it!
In case you haven't noticed, some of the most creative ideas actually don't require much effort. In fact, we're willing to bet that you can easily whip up at least one of these costumes in a flash. So if you and your bae are still in need of some inspiration, check out these adorable Halloween couple costumes that are sure to be a hit.
Dressing up as almost every couple's favorite past time? Um, yes please. This couple nailed the look by accessorizing their classic tees, but you can also get creative with simpler options. For instance, if you're not really feeling the red mini skirt or the robe, consider oversized "Netflix" and "Chill" tees. And if you want to take things up a notch, Netflix could dress up as a flat-screen TV while Chill can have an ice bucket prop. The possibilities are endless!
You've got yourself the catch of a lifetime with your amazing S.O., so what's a better way to show it off than with these clever costumes? Aside from recreating these adorable dresses, you can also opt for cute body suits or big cut-outs of the actual characters. Plus, you can even try experimenting with other character pairs from the classic, like Ash Ketchum and Pikachu. There's a lot to choose from!
Life-sized Barbie and Ken dolls are so creative and fun. If you've got some extra time on your hands, you and your partner can team up to create the packaging and labels. But to be honest, you don't even need the boxes to pull off an epic Barbie and Ken. You can try to copy your outfits from the real life dolls, or simply take your inspiration from the characters in Toy Story 3. Either way, this costume is fairly easy to put together.
How adorable is this?! If you're seriously considering the costume then you're in luck, because you can actually purchase the soap and loofa costume set online. But if you prefer a more affordable option, you can look at this tutorial to create the perfect "loofa dress" and make your own soap from cardboard cut-outs. It'll be a bit of a challenge, but trust us, it's worth it!
It's the perfect costume idea for couples who are proud foodies. And you know what's the best part? You can use your combo to show off your favorite food chains, whether it's Wendy's or McDonald's. You can do like these two and be a burger with a side of fries, or you could mix things up by dressing up as signature items from your preferred fast-food joint. For example, maybe you could create a whopper and a coke from Burger King or chicken nuggets and a Frostee from Wendy's.
Speaking of food, a hot dog with bun (aka the classic American food) is an awesome option too, especially if you love sillier couple costumes that will give people a laugh. But if hot dogs aren't really your thing, then maybe you can go for something similar like ketchup and mustard. It'll definitely turn heads.
If you're looking for a fun concept that's unique but not too over the top, then this might be the one for you and your partner in crime. You could easily purchase the set online or at your nearby costume store. But if you want, you could also spice it up with a few decorations of your own (maybe you want to add some extra wires or a bit of color). But regardless, with a costume like this, we guarantee that you guys will steal the show.
If you're thinking of dressing up as a Disney prince and princess, then maybe you should consider taking things up a notch with this epic pun. We are so obsessed with the idea of someone being the "taco" to their partner's "Belle!" And you lovebirds can count on being the center of attention at Halloween parties. These costumes are beyond adorable, fairly easy to find, and won't require too much work.
These two totally killed it with their DIY Energizer battery Halloween couple costumes. In fact, they seem amazing enough to appear store-bought, but if you look closely, they're actually pretty easy to recreate. All you'll need are a few props to add to your pink and black outfits. But if you want to take it even further, you (or your partner) could draw the actual battery and wear it as a cardboard cut-out. If you're aiming to make an epic costume on a budget, then this could be your best bet.
It's such an adorable way to show the world that you and your bae have got each other covered... Get it? Well, corny jokes aside, these two make an awesome duo and the costumes are super easy to pull off. Plus, who knows, maybe you'll look so much like the real Flo that people will start asking you about insurance. Get ready to do your best Flo impressions!
YES to food mascots! The Green Giant and Chiquita Woman go so well together because they're pretty well-known brands. But this could actually spark even more epic ideas, whether it's Lucky the Leprechaun and Cap'n Crunch or Chester Cheetah and a bag of Cheetos. Just think of all of your favorite snacks and how you can bring them to life for Halloween!
Calling all caffeine addicts! This is your chance to show off your love for the popular coffee chain. And like this couple, you can do the Starbucks employee paired with the coffee-themed dress. Or, you can consider trying a coffee with the actual Starbucks lady from the logo. Both options will definitely impress all your friends.
Who says you can only turn up on Friday nights at the bar? If you love to unwind with cocktails and mixed drinks, then perhaps you should go as the classic gin and tonic. If that's not your preference, then you and your S.O. could go as another popular mix, like vodka and sprite or even Coca-Cola and rum. If you want to add extra, you can go for prop garnishes like lemon slices, cherries, and olives.
It's cute, it's easy, it's affordable, and it's pretty clever. All you and your S.O. have to do get a few packs of balloons, blow them up and then decorate yourselves with them. Putting it together should be quick (depending on how full you want your grape costumes to look), so if you're ever short on time and you need a last-minute idea, this could be the way to go. The only catch, though, is that you'll have to constantly watch out for sharp objects - and that can be tricky.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were a staple in almost every kid's childhood, which is probably why just looking at this makes us feel a bit nostalgic (and hungry). If you and your partner show up at a Halloween party dressed as America's favorite sandwich, you'll definitely stand out. Plus, it's simple, easy, and so so cute! You can check for it at your local store or purchase the set here.
Is anyone else suddenly craving cereal? This DIY costume is by far one of the best that we've seen to date, but if you want to go for this exact look, know that it'll take some extra time and effort (you can follow the tutorial for the cereal bowl costume here). If, however, you'd prefer something quicker, consider designing your own cereal box instead of recreating the bowl (your milk carton can be made from cardboard).
Guys, this is just too cute for words. And even better, it's quite simple to do. All you'll need for this is a bright yellow dress (or a full chick costume!), a sweater with a few feathers attached and a huge magnet prop. Everyone else will wish they came up with the idea!
This is another clever idea to try if you're really into fast food. If you prefer not to dress up as something people want to eat, then you could always go for the fast food mascots. Aside from Wendy and the Hamburglar, you can pick from characters like Colonel Sanders, the Burger King, and Little Caesar.
If you and your S.O. are Potterheads, then you seriously need to consider this one. The snitch costume might take a bit of time, but on the bright side, there's lots of room for creativity. If you're not sure where to start, see this tutorial for how to create your own Golden Snitch dress (or bodysuit, depending on your preference). But lucky for you guys, you won't have to put as much effort into the Harry Potter costume because they're fairly easy to find.
Frolicking in a flower dress while your bae showers you with confetti sounds like an absolute dream, doesn't it? This costume is just beyond adorable and so creative. If you already own a gardening set and pretty floral outfit, then it's safe to say that you've got 90 percent of your costume. But if not, all you really need are some flowers to decorate your outfits, a fake gardening apron, gloves, and a water pot.
How could anyone forget Katy Perry's Super Bowl half-time performance with that goofy left shark? It may have happened over three years ago, but it's still one of the most memorable moments in Super Bowl history. To create this costume, all you need is the shark costume and a colorful two-piece that resemble's Katy's style. But if you want to go above and beyond, consider getting this gorgeous Katy costume to complete the look.
