Funny Couple Halloween Costumes

Updated on September 3, 2015

Double Your Fun with Funny Couple Halloween Costumes

We all know how much fun it is to make your own Halloween costume and hit the party circuit. Your friends all 'OOOhhhh' and 'AAaahhhh' over your unique costume and you're the center of attention, the life of the party!

Until the next person comes through the door in a unique homemade costume and steals the limelight. It's even worse when your better half walks up to stand beside you in his run-of-the-mill zombie costume or your girlfriend struts over in her tired old catsuit. Then you're just another face in the crowd.

But if you and your significant other were to dress up in a Halloween costume made for a couple—and a funny costume, at that—you'd make a much bigger impression and you'd have twice the fun!

Here at, we're betting the reason your better half wears that same old costume year after year after year is because he (or she) can't come up with any new ideas. We're also betting she (or he) would love to get in on some of that Halloween fun with one of these funny couple Halloween costume ideas!

Castaway Couple

Castaway Couple Costume

You remember the movie Castaway starring Tom Hanks and his volleyball-companion, Wilson?

This couple had the brilliant idea to turn their favorite movie into a couples Halloween costume, and it took very little work. (Although he does say that he lost 20 pounds beforehand, so he'd more closely resemble someone who'd been trapped on a deserted island for a few years!)

This was a popular movie that most people will recognize, and your friends will all think you're a genius. They were very easy to make, too. He simply donned a fake shaggy wig and beard and her costume consists of a paper mache ball painted to look like Wilson.

You could put this costume together in an afternoon and by evening you could be the hit of the party!

If Tom Hanks and Wilson aren't your cup of tea, take a look at your favorite movies for other costume ideas.

Mr. Cupcake and Chef Costume

Mr. Cupcake and Chef Costume

Is she your "baby doll"? Do you call him your "pooky bear"? Is he the "icing on your cake" and you're the "peanut butter to his jelly"? This couple decided to take their loving term of endearment and turn it into a couples Halloween costume. And we can all guess who's the real cupcake in this relationship! With the current popularity of anything that has to do with chefs and cupcakes, these two were definitely the center of attention!

His cupcake costume took a bit of imagination and elbow grease, but thankfully, she's pretty handy in the kitchen. A few yards of tulle here, a bit of glitter there, all wrapped round some PVC pipe and voila! He's a fluffy, pink cupcake!

You can do like this couple did and use your nicknames for each other as unique couples costume ideas, or you can take a look around your kitchen. How about going as a peanut butter and jelly? Or what about bacon and eggs? Have some fun being two ingredients that go perfectly together this Halloween.

Lego Bride and Groom

Lego Bride and Groom Costumes

Legos have been popular for decades. Who doesn't like Legos? This couple thought it would be fun to take it a step further and turn themselves into a Lego Bride and Groom.

Their costumes were made of cardboard boxes that they painted with glossy paint to give them the look of plastic. We love the angular look of her hips, too, and the fact that he has such broad, square shoulders.

The Lego look could easily work for other characters, too—like a Lego firefighter or a Lego cop. And a Lego Zombie or Lego Vampire would be funny! Take a look in your child's toybox and you're sure to find some Legos you can use for ideas.

While you're in there, you might find some other ideas—Barbie and Ken or Papa Smurf and Smurfette. Even a box of Nerds candy makes a funny couples costume idea.

Halloween Costumes for Couples Ideas

When they ask you what you're supposed to be, what will you tell them? This one's a conversation-starter, for sure.

More Halloween Costumes For Couples Ideas

You can always go the traditional route and dress up as Mr. and Mrs. Dracula or a couple of zombies, but part of the fun of making your own Halloween costumes is coming up with something unique that will only work if you're both included, standing side by side. Something like a bottle of Jagermeister and a can of Red Bull!

Couples Halloween costume ideas can come from anywhere. Just look for things that come in pairs! Once you open your mind to the endless possibilities, you're only limited by your own imagination. Click here to get more couples Halloween costume ideas.

      I once created a wizard and dragon costume duo. The dragon costume was hilarious with big floppy feet and a perky tail. It actually got more attention than the authentic wizard costume due to the comedic character wearing the prize winner. Okay! Yes it was me.
