Halloween is almost upon us and you know what that means! Most of us will spend time agonizing over what costume to wear. Do you honor your favorite television show? Or will you try to be clever?
If you”re one of a pair, Halloween can be a great time to team up and create a couples costume. Sometimes it”s easier to go as a pair. The costumes are more obvious and there will be less confusion about your choice. It”s so easy to go overboard or, worse yet, make the wrong call with a couples costume.
But there”s hope. The only option isn”t that terrible plug-and-socket costume (yes, we get it, it”s like sex). Never fear. These 10 pairs are here to provide you with some inspiration. You don”t even have to be part of a couple to do these–just grab a friend and tell them you”ll buy them drinks all evening if they agree to be your other half.
1. Hi and Ed McDunnough from Raising Arizona
To really make this costume pop, actually steal a baby.
2. Sully and Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.
Next Halloween, this couple can add Boo to the cast!
3. Doduo from Pokemon
This costume requires dedication and physical endurance.
4. Bob and Linda Belcher from Bob”s Burgers
Complete the look with half of four bottles of wine (for her) and a deeply disturbed “Oh my god” (for him).
5. Quailman and Skeeter from Doug
I mean, if you really wanted to do it right, it would have been The Silver Skeeter, but we”ll forgive you. This time.
6. Flo from the Progressive commercials and Mayhem from the Allstate commercials.
This costume also has a “bad fan-fiction” vibe, but it”s good to be creepy on Halloween.
They”re Nerds and nerds! Get it? Do you get it?
8. Bolt of lightning and victim
He”s even getting into character.
9. Paula Deen and butter
Truly an eternal romance. Racism optional.
10. Cholula and Tapatio hot sauce
Yeah, when I was a kid I thought the Cholula lady and the Tapatio guy were married, too.
Now that you have some inspiration, get to costume making!
