How to Come Up With the Best Couples Halloween Costumes and Ideas
For us, the best way to come up with couples Halloween costumes is to think about all your little inside jokes and shared interests with your S.O.
For pop culture fiends: Is there a Netflix show you’re currently binging together? House of Dragons may not be couples goals, but Stranger Things sure is! Or, was there a movie that you both bonded over early on in the relationship? (We found a great DIY Twilight costume for the TwiHards out there — you know who you are.)
If cute or funny couples Halloween costumes are more your jam, the best ideas are ones that are unique to your relationship. Do you have any cute nicknames for each other, or funny stories that still make you crack up laughing? Is there a type of food you ALWAYS get for date night? (Peep the amazing sushi costume idea below!)
And, of course, there’s always the classics. From zombie bride and groom to Elvis and Marilyn, sexy and scary horror couples Halloween costumes are classics for a reason.
Where to Buy the Best Couples Halloween Costumes
