Couples Halloween Costumes

1. Mary Poppins and Chimney Sweep

There's only one word to describe this costume duo and it's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Image courtesy of

2. Daria and Jane

The 90s are back – and so are 90s-era couple Halloween costumes. Get animated...or lack thereof (yes, technically they are animated characters who don't act so animated in life) and embrace the sick sad world of Daria Morgenendorffer and her best bud Jane Lane. The costumes are simple, fun and you get to have a constant annoyed expression on your face, which is a bonus. Image courtesy of

3. Popeye and Olive Oyl

Dress up as everyone's favorite dynamic duo: the spinach-loving sailor and the lovely lady he only had eyes for. Don't forget to take a can of spinach along! Image courtesy of

4. Wayne and Garth (Wayne’s World)

Party on! Dress up as Wayne and Garth to embrace your inner dudes - imagine how fun it would be to totally take on their personas for an entire night. Sh'yeah! Image courtesy of

5. Mickey and Minnie Mouse

What could be cuter than dressing up as beloved classic characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse? It doesn't matter if you're a guy and a girl or both girls (see photo) - the possibilities of creating your own adorable look are endless. Image courtesy of

6. John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Want a Halloween costume that's chic and creative at the same time? Try dressing up as an iconic couple, like Lennon and Yoko. Bonus: you can likely use items from your closets to create the costume and craft your own "peace" sign. Image courtesy of

12. Matryoshka Russian Nesting Dolls

What better way to embrace the hilarious differences in stature between friends than by personifying these delightful childhood trinkets? Plan to wear shoes with varying heel heights to play up your height differences for some added charm. Image courtesy of

13. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The benefits of wearing a TMNT costume: You have a reason to scream "Cowabunga!" at everyone. You have an excuse to carry around/eat pizza all night long. You get to show off your sweet ninjutsu moves. None of these seem like bad things. Image courtesy of

14. The Spice Girls

It's time to spice up your life, just saying. And becoming an outlandish British pop star for a night is just the trick. Plus, you already know all the words to the Spice Girls tracks. Don't lie, we know you do. Image courtesy of

15. Scooby-Doo! Halloween Costumes

If there's ever a time to get the gang together to solve a mystery, it's on Halloween. We also recommend packing some Scooby snacks because, well, you never know. Image courtesy of

No Costume? No Problem!

If dressing up and going to a costume party is not your thing, there are still plenty of other fun ways to celebrate this spooky Halloween. Consider one of the following alternatives to dressing up in group Halloween costumes or couples Halloween costumes:
  1. Carving, or decorating, pumpkins outside with friends
  2. Participating in a Halloween decorating contest or outdoor scavenger hunt in neighborhoods/living communities
  3. Walking through a haunted trail experience or corn maze
  4. Going on hayrides or tractor rides with a group of friends
