Couples Halloween Costumes
July 7, 2009
There is no denying that dressing up for Halloween with a friend, boyfriend, or husband can double the fun. Halloween costumes for couples reflect not only famous movie duos, but also everyday items. With a little imagination these duo costumes can be moving and dramatic or all out hysterical.
Any naturally occurring pair can be transformed into a couple’s costume. How about portraying salt and peppershakers, peanut butter and jelly, or milk and cereal? Of course if you want a costume that is a bit more traditional, there is always Anthony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet or Bonnie and Clyde. And for the truly far out, try an attached costume (if you can stand being that close to another person for the evening). For example, there is the two-headed person or the ball and chain.
For those of you out there who prefer a little twist on an older theme, the cross dressing idea for traditional couples is always amusing. Couples Halloween costumes offer a large variety and are a truly fun way to spice up a party or gathering. And for those of you who want to take it a little further, there are many group costumes out there!
For a more current and wholly original couples idea, watch the news! Any current event can be transformed into a costume for two and will be sure to get an appreciative rise out of spectators. From silly to romantic to cutting-edge, couples Halloween costumes add that extra flare and entertainment to the evening!
If you want the classic scary costume then a great idea would be Norman Bates and his Mother. Reagan with the Exorcist in tow might turn a few heads as well. And if the lady isn’t much into dressing up then she could simply play the victim to any number of slasher film characters, Michael Meyers, Jason Voorhies, Freddy Krueger, you get the idea.
A cute idea for adult couples Halloween costumes is a ventriloquist and dummy. Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy are classic favorites if you can get your guy to dress as a doll. And if you just keep it simple, you can find many ideas all around you, a mailman and a dog, a nurse and patient, or even a cat and a mouse. Any of these ideas should make for a memorable Halloween.
There are those dual guises with a historic flare like Anthony and Cleopatra, Bonnie and Clyde, or Samson and Delilah. Of course there are couple costumes with famous literary themes like Romeo and Juliet or Little Red Riding Hood and the big, bad wolf. There’s Wilma and Fred, Betty and Barney or Pebbles and Bam Bam. Any famous couple can provide inspiration for a recognizable and entertaining disguise.
