Creative Couple Costume
Now we all can come up with the usual duos like the angels and the devil, the nurse and the patient, or the police officer and the jailbird. But take into account what is unique about the two of you as a couple. Are you known to geek out over computer games or particular movies? Do you share a hobby together? Perhaps there is a ridiculous current event headlining the news that you might like to poke fun at. The best things about you as a couple can be used to generate ideas for all sorts of funny couples Halloween costumes. However, here are a few ideas to help you out:
Surely there is some sort of recent story of a killer running lose on that the news must be inundating you with. Although you may risk being considered somewhat tactless in some circles, there are some groups of friends that would greatly appreciate a couple blatantly arriving as a killer and victim from a high profile crime. This will usually only work if the story is being relentlessly reported.
Funny Couple Costumes
Is one of you significantly smaller than the other? Poke fun at that with a horse and jockey theme. Careful mentioning this one to your girlfriend if you want her to be the horse! Of course it does pose another great idea as switching roles is always funny. Instead of the age old priest and pregnant nun shtick, make the guy the nun and the girl the priest. Can you think of anymore fun role reversals? Consider things that come in pairs and actually somewhat play off of people’s expectations a bit. Think inanimate objects such as cigarettes and lighters, forks and spoons or alcohol and traffic tickets.
Famous Couple Costume
If you are still leaning towards famous couples costumes, who are the couples that people are tired of hearing of in the media? While Brangelina may be a no brainer, there are always celebrity couples to choose from that can easily provoke a chuckle or two when coming through the door in full character. Think of the obnoxious Heidi and Spencer Pratt or famous people rumored but highly unlikely to be couples.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless, but it will do you no good for me to offer too many obvious suggestions as the whole point of couples Halloween costumes is originality! Find your partner and get to work brainstorming current events and qualities you as a team are known for and you are sure to be a hit!
