Halloween is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate than making up a goofy couples costume with your significant other. There are endless possibilities for costumes for two, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Ken and Barbie
This idea is perfect because it is so versatile and you can probably use clothes from your own wardrobe. You could go classy and be Prom Night Ken and Barbie. Or maybe something a little more casual with Beach Party Ken and Barbie. Either way, the hair is what makes it. Barbie should have long flowing waves, while Ken should gel his and part it on the side so it doesn't move an inch. Or you could go all out and build yourself Ken and Barbie boxes!
Adam and Eve
Pay homage to the first couple in the history of couples with Adam and Eve costumes. Wear a flesh colour body suit and cover your naughty bits with fake vines and leaves you can pick up at any craft or garden store. Or if you're really brave, skip the body suit, and go au natural. Don't be surprised if you get turned away from the classier bars, though.
Danny and Sandy
This iconic couple from the musical, Grease, is the perfect choice for a more theatrical duo. Lots of black leather and hair gel will be required for these outfits. Danny gets a leather jacket, a white T-shirt and jeans, while Sandy should wear black tights, pumps and a black off the shoulder top. Bonus points if you learn "You're the One That I Want" and randomly sing lines to each other throughout the night.
Bacon and Eggs/Milk and Cookies/Peanut Butter and Jelly
Food couples are always a hit at parties. What goes together better than bacon and eggs? Or milk and cookies? Or peanut butter and jelly? You might have to put a little more effort into these ones, and be creative with how you put them together. If you can sew, perfect! If not, try using construction paper or cardboard and painting pictures onto them.
Little Red Riding Hood and The Big Bad Wolf
This one is great for the guy who just wants to throw on a mask and be done with it. For Little Red Riding Hood, wear a red cape with a hood and a cute dress. Carry a basket of baked goods and skip around while whistling. The Big Bad Wolf can lurk around, waiting for the perfect chance to pounce on his prey.
A Plug and a Socket
If you are willing to make your costume (or buy it), this is the perfect idea for a couple. There will be no doubt that the two of you are part of a couple's costume (and that's kind of the point, right?). Paint directly on black clothing, or build something out of cardboard. The plug person can joke all night that there is only one socket they fit in.
