Couples Halloween Costumes

Updated on September 25, 2015

Couples Costume Ideas

When dressing up with your spouse or friend, there really are many couples costumes that you can consider besides the basic ball and chain that have been played out over the years, even though there are a few new ones to that effect (as seen below). It's still a good idea to choose a Halloween costume that will look good on its own, in case you and your partner get separated or at the last minute have a fight and one or the other refuses to go to the party.

Have fun with your costume. Be original and creative. You'll find that not as many people go in couples costumes as they used to, but at the same time there's not much that hasn't been done from Fred and Wilma Filntstone to Ricky and Luci to even the stoned out hippies. It's been done, so being 100% original isn't the way to think. It's a start, but as long as your costume is creative, and you add your own personal spice to it, you're going to be unique, which means don't take your costume out of the bag and wear it as is. Add a little something different to make it your own.

You may want to consider some of the following costume ideas. They'll work great for relationships as well as friends who just want to dress as a set. Remember on Halloween, you can be anyone or anything. Women can dress like men, and men can dress like a women. Let the woman be the sexy pimp and the man be the hoe this Halloween.

  • Bull and matador
  • Football player and cheerleader
  • Fred and Wilma Flintstone
  • Barney and Betty Rubble
  • Princess Leia and Han Solo
  • Adam and Eve
  • Cop and prisoner
  • Dog and Beth the bounty hunters
  • Viking warrior and princess
  • Sultan and harem princess
  • Vampire and vampiress
  • King and Queen of hearts
  • Sandy and Danny from 'Grease'
  • Charlie Brown and Lucy
  • Prince and princess
  • Batman and Robin
  • Pirate man and woman
  • Priest and Nun
  • Pimp and hoe
  • Zorro and lady Zoro
  • Mobster and lady gangster
  • Austin Powers and woman
  • Princess Jasmin and Aladdin
  • Barbie and Ken
  • Bacon and eggs
  • Zombie bride and groom
  • Vampire and victim
  • Bonnie and Clyde
  • Dracula and bride
  • Dead prom couple
  • Dragon and slayer
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Gambling man and burlesque woman
  • Ketchup and mustard (it's silly but it'll get a laugh)
  • Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington and Sally

You don't even have to go as a Barbie and Ken or Batman and Robin pair. You and your partner can just dress up as the same thing but in different costumes. If you're going in a man/woman pair, you can easily dress up as a dark vampire and a sexy vampiress and still be a couple costume.

Ball and Chain Costumes

Whether you're married, in a serious relationship, or just a couple of friends, you can pull this one off. There are sets that allow the man to be the ball and chain that the other must carry around, or Halloween sets that make the woman the ball and chain. Either way, the ole ball and chain costume is a classic.

There's now the lock and key that you could consider, which is pretty funny for couples to consider, as well as t he plug and socket.

These costumes are cute and funny for adults to wear to parties together. These costumes are truly couples costumes, and aren't nearly as good if you arrive solo. If you showed up at a party as just the ball and chain or just the key to the lock, you're not going to have nearly the same effect or cause the same reaction as if you had your partner with you.
