16 Couples Halloween Costumes: Beyond Adam and Eve
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?
Plug & Socket
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.
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.
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!
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.
