Black cats, evil witches, scarecrows… Boring. Tired of the same old unoriginal costumes every year at Halloween? So are we.
We put together a list of 15 couple Halloween costume ideas that are cute, fun, and easy to recreate.
Sandy and Danny from Grease
The key to this look: lots and lots of leather and hair gel. You get bonus points if you perform Summer Lovin’ at the Halloween party.
Deep Sea Diver and a Mermaid
With this duo, she can show off her figure in a clam-shell bra and scales, while he makes people laugh in his diving helmet.
Magician and Rabbit
It doesn’t get easier than a pair of bunny ears and drawn-on whiskers! All he needs is a classic black button-down (the suit is optional) with a shiny top-hat and a magic wand.
Jim and Pam from The Office
Love The Office? Don’t want to spend money on a costume?
This one’s for you. Add name tags in case anyone at the party isn’t a fan of the show.
Barbie and Ken Dolls
As posh as can be, with an 80’s flair. Dress in hot pink and turquoise, with a bright blonde wig for Barbie.
Harry Potter and Hermione
Use a simple black robe for your Hogwarts uniform, and dress it up with some Gryffindor-colored accessories. For Harry, add some fake glasses and draw the lightning bolt scar on your forehead.
Peanut Butter and Jelly
The perfect pairing. You can either dress up as the two sides of the sandwich or as the jars themselves.
Jane and Tarzan
For her, a prim and proper yellow sundress. For him, a loincloth, wild hair, and killer abs.
Peter Pan and Wendy
You guys will be the (second) star (to the right) of the party in these costumes.
Cosmo and Wanda from the Fairly OddParents
The hair is the most important part of this couple’s costume. Use temporary colored hair spray in neon pink and green, and top with little golden crowns.
Ash and Pikachu from Pokemon
Gotta catch ’em all! Carry a poke-ball with you to the party in case people don’t recognize you right away.
Shrek and Princess Fiona
You could go all out with your outfits, or just wear green face and body paint and show up as a casual version of the iconic DreamWorks couple.
