12 Couples Halloween Costumes Your Neighbors Aren’t Already Doing (PHOTOS)


Another year, another chance to scare the neighbors -- as a couple! If you're out of couples' Halloween costume ideas, we've got a few that you haven't already seen a hundred times.

Check out this fun list of creative costume ideas to share with your favorite person.

  • Wayne & Garth

    1. Wayne & Garth

    The Wayne's World costume is easy enough to pull off. Wayne wears a black T-shirt, black baseball cap, and maybe a dark, shoulder-length wig. Garth wears a flannel shirt over a rock T-shirt, black-framed eyeglasses, and a blond wig with fluffed bangs. Party on, Wayne. Party on, Garth.

  • 99 Problems & You're Not 1

    2. 99 Problems & You're Not 1

    Share a little too much about your relationship dynamics with this super-easy costume using 99 Problems/ Ain't 1 T-shirts ($28.95, etsy.com)

  • Pigs in a Blanket

    3. Pigs in a Blanket

    This is a literal interpretation of a popular party snack. Just grab a couple of pig snouts ($2.99, buycostumes.com) or spring for a whole pig accessory kit ($10.99, buycostumes.com), and wrap yourselves in blankets. Easy, peasy, snort, squeezy.

  • Plug & Socket

    4. Plug & Socket

    I think we know who wears which costume here: Plug and Socket costume ($34.38, costumediscounters.com).

  • Instagram 'Usie'

    5. Instagram 'Usie'

    A while back we did a video tutorial on how to make an Instagram selfie costume. The same idea will work for a couple! Just use a box wide enough for both of you.

  • Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

    6. Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

    With the help of a black beaded top, black high-waisted pants, and long, golden-blonde wig ($12.58, amazon.com) you could be Jessica Simpson. Your husband dons a gray suit, black shirt, glue-on facial hair, shades, and a bewildered look and he's nailed Eric Johnson.

  • Twinning Emoji

    7. Twinning Emoji

    Put on some black leotards ($18.03, getdancewear.com), black headband bunny ears ($4.95, amazon.com), and blonde bob wigs ($14.99, spirithalloween.com) and you'll become your favorite bunny-eared emoji couple. If you're having trouble talking your man into trying this out, show him this photo of a Twinning Emoji couple.

  • Silent Film Stars

    8. Silent Film Stars

    Look like you literally stepped out of a black-and-white silent film with jazz-age period costumes, black wigs and facial hair, black lipstick (both of you), and white face makeup. Check out this couple's silent film costumes.

  • Jill Duggar & Derek Dillard

    9. Jill Duggar & Derek Dillard

    Jill and Derek are serving a mission (of sorts) somewhere in Latin America -- and now you can, too! All you need is a long, brown wig ($14.99, amazon.com) and modest yet lightweight clothing (maybe a T-shirt with cargo pants). Men wear similar attire with some junior scruff on the face. One of you carry a baby in a carrier (if you don't have one, get a doll) plus a bucket to collect donations and a Bible. OH WHAT? Half of you are Duggar haters and half of you are defenders, I might as well put this idea out there.

  • Hunter & Deer

    10. Hunter & Deer

    Oh deer! The hunter part of this costume is easy: camo or flannel with jeans and toy rifle (make sure it's VERY OBVIOUSLY a toy). And for the hunted, maybe this deer costume ($58.99, halloweencostumes.com). Usually the woman plays the deer, but why not mix it up this year?

  • Curious George & The Man in the Yellow Hat

    11. Curious George & The Man in the Yellow Hat

    Who will be the monkey, and who will be the man? You could go either way with a Curious George Monkey costume ($61.98) and Man in the Yellow Hat costume ($39.98, orientaltrading.com).

  • Richie & Margot Tenenbaum

    12. Richie & Margot Tenenbaum

    If you're lucky enough to score a big, brown fur coat (fake will do -- try eBay) you're well on your way to a Royal Tenenbaum–themed costume. Margot pins her hair to one side and wears a striped Izod dress under her coat. Richie wears a camel suit or blazer/slacks with striped golf shirt, a striped sweatband, dark shades, and a beard.


Are you and your SO dressing up for Halloween?

We go as a family theme for all 3 of us right now. But DH and I have talked about going as a selfie stick (him) and an instagram picture (me) one year when DD doesn't want to match us anymore

I've never really done matching costumes, except one year my ex was a soldier (in his own ACU's because he didn't feel like buying a costume lol) and I was a old style army pin up :) otherwise I just try to pick outfits that look ike they go together, either same colors or a concept that goes together.
