Funny Costumes For Couples
Be the life of the party at your next Halloween shindig!
If you are part of a couple and looking for costume ideas for Halloween or an upcoming costume party, have you thought about dressing up as a funny twosome? These days, there is a wide variety of really cute and funny couples costumes available to suit your tastes that are sure to make you and your partner the life of the party!
Below I present 10 of my favorite funny couples costumes. Most of these ensembles come as a complete set, but some of them are my own ideas that I put together from individual costumes that seemed to belong together.
This image is from a peanut butter and jelly couples costume available at amazon.com.
Are you and your partner thinking of dressing up as a funny twosome this year?
#1: Salt And Pepper Shakers Costumes
This cheery get-up is inspired by the most classic of pairings: salt and pepper. It not only makes a great costume for couples, but it is also perfect for twins. Both the salt and pepper shaker outfits look best with black pants and shoes, with black/white long sleeved turtlenecks as shown here (sold separately).
Made from polyester, each costume comes with a (salt or pepper) tunic and shaker top hat. Size: Adult Standard
#2: Coke And Diet Coke Costumes
Here is another funny couples costume idea: go as Coke and Diet Coke. I like Coke a lot (and also Diet Coke, but to a lesser extent), and when I want to cut back on sugar but don't want to drink all diet soda, I sometimes mix the two together - as I did with the two costumes shown below.

Rasta Imposta Coca-Cola Can Costume
This is the original classic Coke in the familiar bright red can you know and love. As one satisfied amazon.com reviewer noted, "Costume is easy on, easy off, and you have freedom of movement."
This one-piece tunic costume is made from 100% polyester and has the iconic Coca Cola symbol printed on the front. Size: Standard
Rasta Imposta Diet Coke Can Costume
Next time you pass by a vending machine, pick yourself up a Diet Coke can costume. This is the original version with caffeine and no additional flavorings such as cherry, vanilla, etc.
This silver and red costume comes as a one-piece tunic and is made from 100% polyester. Size: Standard
#3: Ketchup And Mustard Costumes
Is the correct spelling "catsup" or "ketchup"? I think they're both equally correct, but whichever spelling you prefer, you and your partner will definitely turn heads showing up as these all-time favorite condiments. With this costume set, the gal goes as the mustard, and the guy as the ketchup. Both costumes have the classic Heinz logo printed on the front.
#4: Bacon And Eggs Costumes
This year, show up at your next Halloween shindig as everybody's favorite breakfast - minus the fat and cholesterol. With these one-size-fits-all costume pieces, you and your guy (or gal) can pick and choose who will go as the fried egg or the bacon this year. These costumes both look good over blue jeans and long sleeved shirts (sold separately).
Both costume tunics are made from 100% polyester. Size: Standard
Note: These costumes will fit pretty much anybody, as reported by one satisfied amazon.com reviewer who is only 5'2" and 95 lbs and whose husband is 6 feet and 175 lbs.
#5: Peanut Butter And Jelly Costumes
This classic pairing makes a great couples costume and will put a smile on the faces of all those who see it, because who doesn't like peanut butter and jelly? With this ensemble, each sandwich half comes in a standard adult size, so you and your partner can take turns each year going as either the peanut butter or the jelly.
This couples costume set comes with two foam tunics or "slices" of white bread, one covered with peanut butter, and the other with jelly. Size: Standard
#6: Fork And Spoon Costumes
Seeing all these food costumes above might make you hungry, so you're going to need some eating utensils. This classic fork and spoon pairing is a great theme for a couples costume, and each utensil can be worn by men and women alike. One satisfied amazon.com reviewer suggests silver metallic face paint (to match the fork and spoon) and all black clothes for best results (sold separately).
Both the silver fork and spoon costumes are made from 100% Polyfoam with an overall length of 66". As shown here, the fork and spoon both fit over the head and the handles hang down the front. For the fork, clear vinyl between the tines helps them hold their shape. Size: Standard Adult
#7: Tacky Traveler Costumes
This affable but tacky couple are such an embarrassment that they make even people that know them want to say "Do I know you?" They may not be the most sophisticated looking travelers on the tour bus, but this funny couple is sure to be a big hit at your next Halloween or costume party. Better yet, you and one of your co-workers can wear this ultra casual get-up at your office's next Casual Friday (if you dare!).
Both costumes come with an Aloha shirt top and Bermuda shorts with a wire hoop waste. The straw hats, nerdy sunglasses, floppy sandals, matching white socks, and other tacky accessories are sold separately (but you probably have most of these items lying around your house in the back of your closet anyway). Size: One-size fits-most (up to 6' and 200 lbs).
#8: Ricky And Lucy Ricardo Costumes
I admit it. I am a longtime fan of "I Love Lucy," having grown up watching countless reruns of this classic show. One of its main attractions is, of course, the loveable and zany Lucy Ricardo paired with her hot-blooded and equally zany husband, Ricky. TV's all-time wackiest couple makes the perfect costume if you are looking for something funny and original for your next Halloween shindig.

Men's Ricky Ricardo Halloween Costume
This Ricky Ricardo costume is quite a find, and when I stumbled upon it at amazon.com, it seemed to be crying out for a matching Lucy costume (see below).
This costume comes with a ruffled shirt, black pants, bow tie and cummerbund (shoes sold separately). Size: Adult Standard
I Love Lucy Classic Adult Costume
This Halloween, go as Ricky Ricardo's crazy scarlet-haired wife with this popular costume that really capture the essence of this iconic and beloved TV character.
This costume includes a polka dot dress, trimmed white apron, and a hair bow (shoes and wig sold separately). Sizes: Small (6-8), Medium (10-12), Large (14-16), Ladies Plus (18-22)
#9: Dumb And Dumber Costumes
In the 1994 comedy, "Dumb And Dumber," starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and Lauren Holly, two hapless friends - Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne - make a cross country journey to start a new life and also to try to return a briefcase left behind by a woman, Mary Swanson, who was a passenger of the limo that Lloyd drives for his job. As the bobble-headed duo head to Aspen where Mary resides (and with whom Lloyd had fallen in love at first sight), they get into one hilarious scrape after another.
The two neon-colored tuxes shown below are from the scene in which Harry and Lloyd are attending a charity dinner event at which Mary is also among those present.
Rasta Imposta Dumb and Dumber Lloyd Christmas Tuxedo Costume
Believe it or not, this is the get-up worn by Lloyd Christmas to the charity dinner to try to impress Mary Swanson. One amazon.com reviewer reported not using the hat but, instead, styled his hair to look like that of the Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) character. Another reviewer and his brother wore the orange and blue (shown below) tuxes to a Halloween party and won for funniest costume!
This retina-burning orange tuxedo costume includes a jacket, pants, cummerbund, dickie and a top hat (the matching orange cane is sold separately). Size: Standard
Rasta Imposta Dumb and Dumber Harry Dunne Tuxedo Costume
This is the outfit worn by Harry Dunne to that charity dinner. Harry and his goofy friend Lloyd are quite a sight for sore eyes, and you will be, too, when you and your partner pair this tux with the bright orange one shown above.
This sky blue tux comes with a jacket, pants a ruffled dickie, a cummerbund and a top hat (the matching cane is sold separately). Size: Standard
#10: His And Hers Marilyn Monroe Costumes
When browsing through funny costumes at amazon.com, I stumbled across a Marilyn Monroe costume for guys (see below) and got this crazy idea for a couples costume in which both parties are dressed as the fabulously beautiful movie star. If you are looking for something "different" for your next Halloween party, I think people will definitely do a double take when you both show up dressed as this famous Hollywood icon.

California Costume Women's Adult Deluxe Marilyn
Inspired by the world's most famous white dress, this costume is a very popular item on amazon.com. No matter who you show up with at your next costume party, you are sure to be the main attraction wearing this sexy yet classy outfit.
This white pleated dress is made by California Costumes from 100% polyester (wig and shoes sold separately). Sizes: Small (6-8), Medium (8-10), Large (10-12), X-Large (12-14)
Funny Marilyn Costume For Men
As to which of you two will end up being the prettier Marilyn, I'll leave that up to you and Mother Nature.
This male version of the classic Marilyn Monroe outfit comes with a white halter dress with very ample padding in both the breasts and the butt - although I think the latter is a bit of an overkill. This costume fits up to men's Size 42 (wig, shoes, and jewelry sold separately.)
