Halloween Couples Costumes
Do you and your partner’s costumes have to match? While there is no written rule saying that couples should coordinate their Halloween looks, I find it endearing when there is some correlation, even if it isn’t blatantly obvious! However, I usually find it a lot more difficult to think of a unique couple’s costume, than to dress myself. Even though you’re sharing your life with somebody, it doesn’t mean you necessarily share the same taste! This is why I like to have options that we can brainstorm on! If you, too, are in need of inspiration, let’s dive into this article and get your creative juices flowing!

Scary Couple Costumes
We can’t do Halloween without an honorable mention of its cinematic Godfather – Tim Burton. The one movie that I religiously watch every year during this time is Corpse Bride. We have to admit that recreating Emily and Victor’s costumes is a lot of work. The makeup, on the other hand, is much easier to achieve. If this look is love at first sight for you, and you want to copy it, we’ve got the easiest makeup guides for you to follow in the videos below!

Scary Barbie and Ken
Do you feel heavily influenced by the Barbie craze? I don’t blame you, Greta Gerwig’s movie rocked the globe harder than Greta Thunberg’s statements about global warming! It’s safe to say that the outfits are iconic and definitely won’t go unnoticed at any party. Although, it is Halloween, so why not give them a little unexpected spooky twist? Some fake blood tears and white contact lenses will do the trick just fine!
Zombie Sandy and Danny
Grease was the IT-movie of my childhood, so every time I get to channel my inner Sandy, best believe that I am going to make the most of it! To make the outfits a little more Halloween-esque, why not try giving them a zombie makeover? If anyone ever decides to do a zombie apocalypse remake of the original motion picture, I’ll be in the first row!
Voodoo Doll and a Witch Doctor
Now, this costume idea is definitely a little out of the box, however, I do love the concept! If your man gets the wild idea to misbehave during the Halloween party, just playfully poke him with one of those pins to remind him who pulls the strings!
Does the skeleton woman look quite familiar to you? No, you’re not crazy – this is in fact J Lo! Back in 2015, she appeared in this glamorous all-black gown beside her then-boyfriend Casper Smart masked behind stunning glam Halloween skeleton makeup. Truthfully speaking, I haven’t been able to forget about their looks ever since and this might finally be the year when I’ll recreate them with my significant other!

Movie Couple Costumes
As you’ve probably gathered by now, my biggest inspiration for Halloween costumes is movie characters! I am low-key a cinephile, so whenever I watch a movie with costumes that stand out to me, I take a mental note for future Halloween ideas! If you are one of those sporty couples that like to get in little friendly competitions, the Lola and Bugs Bunny couple’s costume is a perfect fit for you!

Sam and Suzy from Moonrise Kingdom
I think we can all agree that Wes Anderson makes some of the most comforting and nostalgic movies of our generation. This is the feeling that I crave during the fall, which is why I always find myself diving into his work and getting inspired by it around Halloween. Moonrise Kingdom in particular is a movie that I’ve always wanted to transport myself in, and recreating the Sam and Suzy costumes is probably the closest I will ever get to that!
Cruella Deville and a Henchman
Do you feel like you’re living in your villain era? If that’s the case, dressing up as Cruella Deville and her henchman this Halloween will suit you perfectly!
Ted Lasso and Rebecca
If you haven’t seen the brilliant Ted Lasso soccer comedy yet, I advise you to do it and thank me later! What I love so much about this couple’s costume is that it’s really recognizable and easy to recreate. For Ted’s attire, all you need is a faux moustache, a fleece, khaki pants, and trainers. If you already have long blond locks, all you’re going to need for Rebecca’s outfit is a warm and comfy matching set, and you’re done!
The Grinch and Cindy Lou
Ah, the Grinch and Cindy Lou! One of my favorite cinematic pairings of all time! If you’ve done this costume already in the past, you can switch it up by having your boyfriend dress a Cindy, and you as the Grinch! This will definitely be an unexpected twist that will make your friends laugh in the best way possible!
Top Gun Pilots
If anyone ever tells you that they don’t like Top Gun – don’t trust them! Without a doubt, this is one of the greatest movies of all time that has won the hearts of generations! Plus, the pilot uniforms are pretty hot, so who wouldn’t want to wear them for Halloween?
The Scream and Casey Becker
If you want a costume that’s quick to execute, but still effective, the Scream and Casey Becker make a powerful duo that will definitely give your friends and family a good 90s throwback!
