13 Easy Halloween Costume Ideas For Couples

by Chanel Vargas

With Halloween getting closer and closer every day, now is a great time to start thinking about a Halloween costume for you and your favorite special someone. If you and your partner want an easy couples Halloween costume that you don't have to put too much effort into, then I've got you covered. Whether you're looking for something cute, funny, or just a classic costume, these ideas are bound to get the creative juices flowing to help you put together your Halloween costumes this year.

As much as you might love Halloween, or even proclaim that it's your favorite holiday, not everyone has the time, money, or patience to put together a spectacular, hand-crafted Halloween costume worthy of Comic Con. I like to plan out my costume in my head months in advance and then forget about it completely until the week before Halloween. If that's the case with you and your partner — or if you're just really not into complicated costumes — the world (and the internet) is full of inspiring things to base your Halloween costume around this year. Not everyone needs to know how to put on the spookiest face paint or craft the ultimate replica light saber to have a cool costume. Sometimes, all it takes is an idea and an online shopping trip.

If you still want to get into the Halloween spirit and dress up with your partner, check out these simple ideas to help you find the perfect Halloween costume.

1. Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable

Here's the sitch: Even though they might not seem equally talented when it comes to saving the world, Kim and Ron have proven time and time again they are far better at stopping evil when they're together than when they're apart. If you and your significant other are fans of this dream team, it's time to dig up your best black long-sleeve shirts to replicate these simple crime fighter costumes.

3. Snapchat Filters

You're both used to sending each other silly Snapchat photos. But, why send the Snapchat when you can be the Snapchat? This one does involve a little bit of creativity with some face paint, but it's nothing too complicated if you're willing to give it a go. Try clipping butterfly clips in a circle around your hair and using some shimmery gold highlighter on your face to perfectly recreate the Snapchat butterfly crown filter.
