Apparently once you become a couple, you become boring or develop a very strange sense of humor. (I mean really… Plug and Socket? Ketchup and Mustard? Bacon and Eggs? These are the best costumes we can come up with?!)
There are plenty of fun costumes out there for couples, all one has to do is be a little creative. This list of five unique couples Halloween costumes will hopefully help save you from the embarrassment of showing up at next year’s Halloween party in one of those aforementioned dastardly designs.
Dress Up as a Rabbit and Carrot on Halloween
I have to thank my brother and sister-in-law for introducing me to this one. It’s really fairly simple to pull off, and quite comical to see. Bunny costumes abound online … and they make them for all shapes and sizes now. Ladies don’t be shy … chances are the giant carrot next to you will be getting most of the attention!
A Hunter and a Deer Makes a Great Unique Costume
This one requires a bit more creativity. I had the idea to dress up as this a few years ago. Dressing up as the hunter is quite easy – camo pants and shirt, bright orange hat and some boots – but I struggled to find a deer costume. Luckily, reindeer costumes are quite popular and I found one of those with ease. I simply used that sans a bright red nose. For those more creative types out there, making a deer costume is pretty easy. The most important part of the costume is the antlers. These can be cut out of cardboard and attached to a headband. The rest of the costume can be pretty basic. Brown shirt and leggings with black shoes and black gloves.
Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter are a Great Couple on Halloween
After the success of Tim Burton’s release of this movie (thank you Johnny Depp), these costumes are all the rage. Even if your man doesn’t want to go all out with the bright hair and makeup of Depp’s Mad Hatter character, he can still pull this costume off. All he really needs is a thrift store suit and a top hat, complete with an index card with 10/6 written on it. Remember, the Mad Hatter was mad, so get creative with mismatched suit pieces and a wig!
Be a Gunslinger and Saloon Girl on Halloween
I sold my boyfriend on this idea when I told him he got to dress up like Wyatt Earp. Boys are so easy.
Leonardo Da Vinci and Mona Lisa Make a Wonderful Couples Costume
To be Da Vinci all you need is a painter’s smock and a baret. Get a little creative with the accessories – smear a little paint on yourself, buy a crazy long haired wig, etc. You can find Mona Lisa costumes online fairly easily.
I hope this list gives you some good ideas for unique couples Halloween costumes. Here’s to winning the best couples’ costume at next year’s party!
