16 Couples Halloween Costumes: Beyond Adam and Eve

Plug & Socket

Dead set on donning a couples costume with your significant other this Halloween? Here are some classic and some creative options to get you started. First, let's plug (ha!) the perennial favorite plug and socket costume — ridiculous, a little raunchy and dare we say remarkably slimming?

Jesse & Walter from Breaking Bad

Coveralls. Need I say more?

Ping Pong Players (or any other doubles team)

Ping-pong paddles are a great party prop, which is why this costume works the best out of the doubles options. Tennis racquets are unwieldy.

A Farmer & His Livestock

In this example, the livestock in question is a lamb (extra points for creative use of cotton balls). Go hog-wild and be a pig, or carry the farmer around all night while dressed as a horse!

The Government Shutdown

One of you dresses as a Republican, the other as a Dem. Ignore each other. Glare occasionally.

Beer Pong

Contrary to this Target ad, you would never want to dress as this by yourself! Otherwise, you'll just be a solo cup...

Curious George & The Man with the Yellow Hat

Children's classics really do make cute costumes, guys.

Harold & Maude

Best. Couple. Ever.

Superhero Pairs

Classic for a reason! No points for originality, though.

The Proverbial Chicken & Egg

It's a fun, philosophical costume! Bonus: acts as a barometer of how smart your friends are.

Green Eggs & Ham

Dr. Seuss' perennial classic provides instant fodder for two-person costumes. For bigger groups, go with The Sneetches. Going solo? Try Yurtle (the turtle).

Jack & Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas

Star-crossed lovers, vaguely un-dead...what could be more romantic?

James Bond & His Martini

The person dressed as the martini should, ideally, be of the shaken-not-stirred variety.

Jay-Z & Beyonce

Be fabulous. And in love. Extra points if you bring Blue Ivy along with you. Just borrow a baby!

American Gothic

Don't forget the rake/pitchfork thing.

Where's Waldo & Wenda?

Extra bonus: getting to yell "Where's Waldo??!!" all over the party/around the neighborhood as you search for your similarly-costumed partner.
