Halloween costume ideas for a couple
From cute to scary, here are a few couples Halloween costume ideas
It's double the fun to go to a Halloween party with your partner, and even better if you two can dress as a pair. But what should you be? Here are a few original, and a few classic Halloween costume ideas for a couple.
Hail to the Chief!
The presidential election is on everyone's mind this year, so why not go as your favorite (or least favorite) presidential pair? Go for the party nominees, or mix it up with a Hilary and Palin pairing. What about McCain and Obama? Or how about matching up a candidate with a past President you think he or she is most like -- or most unlike?
The good, the bad or maybe the ugly
Remember Beauty and the Beast? She was young, innocent and lovely, he was a horrible monster -- a classic pair for a Halloween choice. Or how about the Phantom of the Opera and his young love, Christine? Hugh Hefner and a Playboy bunny are a popular choice, but consider adding a humorous touch by reversing the roles...she could dress in a smoking jacket and pajamas and he could don the classic Bunny costume, complete with ears and a fluffy tail.
Give my regards to Broadway…or look to the Silver Screen
Broadway and the movies are full of Halloween costume ideas. For couple costumes, consider the great romantic pairs of yesterday or today: Spencer Tracy and Catherine Hepburn, Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, or Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Or go for a more whimsical pairing, as the Fox and the Hound, Lilo and Stitch, or maybe best friends Sulley and Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.
Television's greatest hits
The little screen is also a great source for Halloween costume ideas. For couple costumes, consider classic cartoon favorites like Jane and George Jetson, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, or Shaggy and Scooby. Or you might want to opt for more recent television pairs like Ray and Debra Barone, Meridith and Derek from Grey's Anatomy, or Jim and Pam from The Office.
Pair a celebrity chef with a signature dish
Foodies will love this Halloween costume idea for a couple! Emeril Lagasse and a bottle of "kick it up a notch" Tabasco or Paula Deen and a sugary chocolate pie would make a great costume pair. For a timeless touch, those who remember Chef Julia Child might want to appear with her infamous pressed duck.
If computers are your forte, consider high tech Halloween costume ideas for a couple, like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs (or Steve Wozniak and Jobs.) Or how about a PC and a Mac? Other techie choices would include sci fi "couples" like Leah and Luke, Luke and Hans Solo, Spock and Kirk, Picard and Riker, or Worf and Jadzia.
If you like thinking outside box, consider putting together an unlike pair for your couples' costume. A priest and a hooker, a fish and a bicycle (students of early 1970's history will understand that one), or an apple and an orange would be good choices if you want people to stop and think about your costume choices.
No matter what you choose, remember that Halloween is all about having fun. Keep your eyes open as you watch television, read or go about your daily routine. Halloween costume ideas for a couple are everywhere! Happy Haunting!
