Halloween Costume Ideas for Couples

A Huge List of Halloween Costumes for Couples


Plug and Socket Couples Costume

Plug and Socket Couples Costume


Dressing up is one of the best parts of Halloween, but sometimes coming up with the perfect couples' costume idea can be a chore.

To decide on the best costume for you and your sweetie, think about your shared interests and passions: are you superheroes or medieval characters from a romantic play? Matched opposites, wannabe celebrities, fantasy role players or something completely different?

All of these suggestions were compiled to try and cover all of these ideas, and more, suitable for all occasions. If you think I've missed a crucial idea, or want to share a costume idea you and your partner concocted, I'd love it if you submitted it to my Halloween costume ideas for couples gallery.

Please note that all links either open to a direct buy costume website, or to more information on the About.com network about the characters or entertainment listed.

Also, if you are in need of a Halloween Date Idea to go along with your costume, I've got you covered. Or, if you ended up in the wrong place and are looking for Singles Halloween Costumes instead, no problem - we've got great ideas for you, too.
