Funny Couple Halloween Costumes
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 Costume-Works.com, 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 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!

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.
